Mariska Hargitay is closing the case on Mischa Barton rumors.

The “Law & Order: SVU” star called reports that the former “The Beautiful Life: TBL” was unprofessional while filming the NBC drama on Monday in New York “fiction.”

“She’s really knocking it out of the park on ‘SUV,’” Mariska told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson on the red carpet at the 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA. “Her work has shined… Mischa did some very beautiful, touching work and quite frankly, blew me away.”

The star then turned to Access’ cameras, declaring, “The story is fiction!”

The New York Daily News’ Gatecrasher column previously claimed Mischa had “badly bombed” during filming of a guest spot as a prostitute on the NBC crime show.
