Actress Mischa Barton is at risk of losing her California home after bank officials filed foreclosure papers.

The former The O.C. star has reportedly fallen $100,000 (£58,825) behind on payments on the $4.2 million (£2.5 million) mortgage she has for the property in Beverly Hills, according to Tmz.com.

Barton purchased the home in 2005 for $6.4 million (£3.76 million) and has been trying to sell the mansion since 2010.

Last year (13), she put the house up for rental for $35,000 (£20,590) a month, but she has not been able to lease it out.

Bank officials have now filed default documents, which have triggered the foreclosure process.
