isn’t happy with theBuzz – but unlike other celebrities, she isn’t afraid to tell us to our faces.
Last night the kooky starlet stormed out of a party in Mayfair to confront our Luke – saying she wanted to set the record straight about her love life. “I want to talk to you about the stories you’ve been writing about me,” a glamorous-looking Mischa said, after marching out of the after party for the launch of the Belvedere Pop-Up Shop at The Connaught hotel.
First on her list of gripes was our exclusive revelation earlier this week that she had enjoyed a cosy reunion with former boyfriend Luke Pritchard – of The Kooks –in Camden over the weekend.
thought the fact that the headline said ‘Luke’ and you’re called Luke was kind of funny, but he and I are just friends,” she insisted. “Plus, I’m seeing a new guy at the moment so the story made it awkward with him.”
And who is the lucky guy? Misch refused to elaborate, but we spotted her getting cosy later on with James Regan, a barman and aspiring scriptwriter. Mischa also wasn’t happy that we revealed she’s been trying to hang out with Pete Doherty. “You wrote a story about me and Pete Doherty that upset a lot of my friends,” she said. “It was unnecessary.” We insist that it’s true, however…
Always happy to get feedback, we were pleased to listen to Mischa. Most celebs hide behind PR machines if they are not happy with stories. We think she’s a cool chick…
Here is Mischa’s latest blog from her official site about the status of her relationship with Luke Pritchard:
I’m sure you guys are all going to hear about it soon enough so I just wanted to tell you what is real first — I broke up with Luke when I got to London. Things just didn’t feel quite right. There was no cheating or anything terrible, the bad just started to outweigh the good and a long distance relationship is never an easy thing to do.
I hope that the press will show some respect in the near future as we both find it very difficult to deal with a lot of attention or speculation from the media. I think Luke is a great guy, but the type better suited as a . We have a surprising amount of mutual friends in England and I don’t regret our time together, I just couldn’t keep it going.
There is no bitterness between us…that I know of (sorry, I had to joke!). If there ever is a case of two people staying friends I’m sure it will be the case with us — our personalities are very good for that.
Lots of love to my fans! I’ll check in again soon.

I’m sure most of you have read the tabloid gossip speculating that Mischa is in the middle of a love triangle between Luke Pritchard and Tom Wright. She’s now personally addressed this matter and set the record straight. Courtesy Mischa’s Official Blog.
I’m sure you’ve all heard the rumors about the alleged “love triangle” between Luke Pritchard, Tom Wright and me, so I just wanted to take this opportunity to clear the air on this matter. There is not now, nor has there ever been a “feud” between the three of us; Tom is a close friend of mine and we hang out with a lot of the same people in London. If I’m dating anyone right now, it’s Luke.
Luke is an amazing guy and we enjoy spending time together, but we’ve only been seeing each other for a few weeks and we’re taking it slow.
I hope this clears things up for everyone.
With Mischa running back and forth between London and Paris, she has been spotted several times over the last few days at various places. Here is the rundown of update candid albums, including shots of Mischa with new love interest Luke Pritchard.

Mischa’s kiss with friend Irina at her 23rd birthday party has caused a little bit of a media stir. So Mischa decided to set the record straight and in the process has somewhat confirmed her relationship with Luke Pritchard (from The Kooks). I’ll upload some candids of the new lovebirds very soon. In the meantime, here is Mischa’s latest blog from her official site.
As I’m sure most of you have already seen, I was photographed at my 23rd birthday party engaging in what most of the gossip blogs refer to as a “girl on girl kiss”. Well I just wanted to take this moment to clear the air by saying that the kiss was purely platonic! We were joking around and it was taken out of context.
The anonymous female I was photographed with is actually my close friend Irina. Irina works as a model in Paris and since meeting a few months ago we have been spending a lot of time together. We share a lot of the same interests and I really enjoy her company. I guess you can say she’s become my Paris partner in crime!
So no, I haven’t switched teams. In fact, I have someone else that is keeping me occupied at the moment ; )
I don’t usually post stories like this but since there are direct quotes from the guy in question, I figured there is at least some weight to it. Maybe Mischa will clarify on her blog.
Mischa Barton dating Luke Pritchard from The Kooks
Get ready to see more of Mischa Barton. I can reveal the OC actress has bagged herself a British rock star boyfriend – Luke Pritchard from The Kooks. My spies spotted the 22-year-old actress on a date with the indie singer in a small boozer in North London. The couple must have thought nobody was watching as they cuddled and kissed on a leather banquette at the Old Queens Head, a traditional pub in Islington.
They were at a special Christmas bash for trendy DJ collective Oh, Inverted World. And boosted by the festive cheer, the usually uptight Mischa really let herself go, clapping and cheering loudly when Luke, 23, below, got up on stage to do a surprise solo acoustic session.
So I spoke to the Kooks frontman at the band’s post-Brixton Academy gig party the following night and found that the feeling was mutual.
A gushing Luke, whose band’s album Konk went straight to number one when it was released back in April, confided to me: “It’s early days yet but, yes, we are seeing each other. “I’m very lucky. She’s beautiful, so I feel lucky she decided to go out with someone like me. It came about because we have lots of friends in common and kept going to the same parties.” I was surprised Mischa wasn’t at the gigs in Brixton though, but Luke told me: “She is in LA. She has work to do.”
But now the band’s tour is over, Luke revealed: “I plan to enjoy myself and hopefully see more of Mischa.” Both have had a string of high-profile romances. Luke’s ex’s include TV presenter Fearne Cotton and singer Katie Melua.
Mischa has dated Taylor Locke, guitarist in American band Rooney, and Whitestarr’s Cisco Adler.
