London: They are both troubled stars famous for their public meltdowns and now singer Amy Winehouse and actress Mischa Barton have become pub mates.

The two were spotted greeting each other at a Camden pub yesterday after Barton relocated from LA to London to be with new boyfriend, DJ Ali Love.

Winehouse was at her favourite pub, The Hawley Arms, when the `O.C.` actress walked in, reported Daily Mail online.

The supposedly-reformed pair were spotted shaking hands then kissing each other on the cheek before enjoying a chat over a drink.

The `Rehab` singer, 26, was wearing her usual style of denim shorts, vest and ballet shoes, while Barton wore a patterned skirt, white T-shirt, beige waistcoat and battered boots.

With their headline-making past behaviour, no doubt the two women had plenty of common ground to bond over.

Winehouse is said to be clean after a high-profile battle with drug addiction, while Barton recently announced she has gone tee-total following her arrest in 2007 for driving under the influence.
