Mischa Barton‘s latest man candy James Abercrombie is more than a pretty face – he’s an Australian fashion model and the heir to one of the largest fortunes in the world.
James is the son of Andrew Abercrombie, a former Victorian Liberal Party treasurer, and is set to inherit roughly $574 million. The Australian party member is ranked number 122 on the AFR Rich List.
Mischa and James met at a party in L.A. last month and they’ve been confirmed as a couple by James’ modeling agency Bucknall Management/FRM Model Management.
“James is currently dating well known actress Mischa Barton,” FRM Model Management director Stephen Bucknall told The Daily Mail. “James met Mischa at a party in Los Angeles just about a month ago. They then headed off on a small trip to France. He is now back in Los Angeles and they are spending a lot of time together.”
All of this good news comes after a rough period for Mischa. Not only was she hospitalized on her birthday for being given GHB (date rape drug) in January, but she also just ended an ongoing revenge porn court battle with her ex-boyfriend earlier this week.
James also went through some misfortune last year when his father’s home was robbed of approximately $1 million in jewelry. Thankfully no one was home and they weren’t harmed.
Here’s hoping that this is a sweeter change to the couple’s new romance!
