Actress is hospitalised after abuse allegations

Actress Amanda Bynes has reportedly been placed on involuntary psychiatric hold in a hospital in LA, according to reports today.

The actress caused concern yesterday after posting a series of tweets in which she accused her father of making sexual advances towards her, before later taking back the accusations, blaming them on a “microchip in my brain”.

According to TMZ, Amanda arrived in Los Angeles yesterday evening and was picked up by a car service, which she thought was taking her to a hotel. Instead, the 28-year-old’s parents had her brought to a hospital, where their lawyer and doctors were awaiting her arrival.


An involuntary psychiatric hold was then placed on Amanda, meaning that she can be held for up to 72 hours. It is believed that her parents are working to have their daughter placed back under their conservatorship.

We certainly hope that Amanda and her family can work together through what is clearly a very difficult time.
