In order to make ends meet, Nuala says she has held private parties in order to sell off furniture, clothing and jewelry.

The case is still ongoing.

As exclusively reported, Nuala’s famous daughter recently requested to dismiss her lawsuit against her mother a year after she called her “greedy” and exploitive.

Mischa seems to be recovering from her own financial and personal issues by landing a new gig on Dancing With the Stars.
