Mischa Barton’s relationship with Rooney frontman Taylor Locke ended on September 5, just shy of their seven-month anniversary a new report from In Touch notes on Tuesday. The magazine says that according to an insider, it was Mischa who pulled the plug on the relationship and called it quits.
The magazine reports that the couple had just returned from a nearly three-week safari and charity junket through Africa and all that togetherness seems to have been their downfall. “Mischa and Taylor’s romance worked because they spent so much time apart,” an insider tells In Touch.
“He’d be on tour or she’d be working in Europe and they talked over the phone or e-mail.” The insider explains to In Touch that spending 24 hours a day in close proximity with Taylor, 24, caused the 22-year-old actress to rethink her future with him.
“They fought almost every day on the trip,” the insider says. “She broke up with him just a few days after they returned to LA.” “They’d only see each other for a few days at a time,” says the insider. She has a thing for musicians: She also dated Cisco Adler.
Mischa finally surfaces back in LA! She attended the In Touch Weekly Icons + Idols Celebration at the Chateau Marmont. With performances by Good Charlotte, Leona Lewis and The Veronicas and music provided by Samantha Ronson. Currently we have only mq photos uploaded but hopefully hq versions show up soon.
As you can all obviously tell, a new layout is in the process of being uploaded. Not all the sections have been transferred to the new look and some bits and pieces are still missing but everything will be ironed out shortly.
Massive thanks to the awesome Ronie from SLO Designs for this sleek new look. Thanks Ronie!

Also, for those wondering where Mischa is: A random report is indicating that she’s in Toronto. Hopefully we get some new photos or something soon.
