Anyone who has been following our updates on Amanda Bynes’ recent bizarre behaviour will no doubt have seen those rather worrying tweets from earlier today, in which she accused her father of making sexual advances towards her.
While the actress went on to send out a tweet in which she took back all of the allegations she made against her father, her parents have this evening expressed their deep concern for their daughter.
In a statement released after Amanda’s flurry of tweets, her mother Lynn wrote: “I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years. Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually.”
She added: “These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! These allegations stem from Amanda’s mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband’s character could be slandered in such a way.”
Their statement comes after Amanda appeared to do a one-eighty on the extremely serious allegations, writing on Twitter: “My dad never did any of those things. The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me.”
The actress has remained silent on her social media since, but, naturally, her activity today has only raised further concern about her wellbeing.
