It took mere hours after her release from a medical facility for Amanda Bynes to get back to her Twitter ranting, and it’s clear from her first public appearance that not much has changed for the actress.
The 28-year-old was photographed stepping out to eat at a restaurant in Hollywood at the same time that she was supposed to be appearing at a court case.
Sources at the eatery told TMZ that Amanda was “chatty”, but displayed some rather erratic behaviour during her visit.
According to the website’s report: “The waitress tells us she stepped out of the way several times for an imaginary person.”
Amanda was photographed making her way into the restaurant using a blue sweater to hide her face.
Since her return to Twitter on Friday, the star is also back talking about more surgery procedures, writing: “Also Love Bugs, I look horrible right now because I had a procedure done under eyes to remove micro cysts, so I need to wear a bandage to court.”
After missing the court appearance, Amanda’s parents retained their conservatorship over her.
The news that she is out and about again after being under psychiatric hold only broke today, but already Amanda Bynes is making her presence known on Twitter.
The troubled star, who has spent the past few weeks in a medical facility in California, is back on social media and is pointing the finger of blame.
The 28-year-old took to Twitter in the past hour to blast members of the media, writing: “Tamar Arminak it is illegal to talk to the press about my personal business. You are corrupt and belong in prison.”
The Hairspray star followed up with another message of warning, writing: “And no one should ever hire Richard Hutton. His daughter Jen Heger runs Radar Online and he tells her everything, also illegal and corrupt.
In another string of tweets sent out later in the afternoon, the actress accused her parents of lying about her and trying to steal her money, saying that she intends to challenge them in court today.
Amanda sparked concern last month after taking to Twitter to post a series of worrying messages, including detailed posts about her father making sexual advances on her during her childhood. She later retracted the statements, branding them as false.
According to reports, Amanda’s parents regained conservatorship over her after discovering that the star had purchased expensive jewellery and gifted it to total strangers.
We hope that these tweets aren’t a sign of another downward spiral.
Amanda Bynes was pictured out and about in Los Angeles just a few hours ago, despite the fact that her psychiatric hold was meant to last at least another month.
The actress was admitted to a medical facility in Pasadena, California just over three weeks ago, and earlier this week doctors asked the court's permission for her to be held there for another 30 days.
However, in the early hours of this morning Amanda was pictured by TMZ walking down Sunset Strip looking for a hotel. In the photos, the former child star can be seen wearing dark sunglasses and a large black coat. She was also snapped eating in a diner in the area.
The star's doctors requested the extension on her psychiatric hold because they believed she was still "very ill" and unable to care for herself. But it's now being reported that the judge did not agree Amanda was unstable enough to be held for another month and so he ended the extension after just a few days.
Even though she has been released from the facility, Amanda is still being kept reined in somewhat by her parents. They have been granted control of her finances again, after filing court documents which stated she had been spending "alarming amounts" of cash and that she was a "substantial risk" to herself and others.
Amanda Bynes will be kept on psychiatric hold for two more weeks, it has been revealed.
The actress was taken to Las Encinas hospital in Los Angeles last Friday, immediately after she touched down at LAX airport from New York. It's believed she thought she was being taken to a hotel but that her parents had arranged for her to be taken directly into medical care.
Just hours before being admitted to the treatment facility last week, Amanda took to Twitter to post a series of shocking allegations about her father, claiming he had verbally and physically abused her as a child and had "fondled himself" in front of her many times.
She then deleted the tweets and admitted her father had never done any of those things, but that a microchip in her brain was the cause of her confusion:
The actress' parents are said to be relieved that she will receive the treatment she needs. "They're happy she's safe and that Amanda is finally getting some help," said a source.
The star is being held under section 5150 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code, which allows for mentally ill people who are a danger to themselves or others to be taken into care against their will.
We might have seen this one coming.
Pretty much everyone was surprised by troubled actress Amanda Bynes’ revelation that she was engaged to be married to a boyfriend that we had never seen or heard of.
But, if today’s reports are anything to go by, Amanda will not be walking down the aisle any time soon.
Her supposed fiancé, 19-year-old Caleb Pusey, whom she allegedly met during last year’s stint in rehab, has spoken out to deny that he ever made marriage plans with Amanda.
Speaking to TMZ, Caleb admitted that while he and the She’s the Man star did befriend one another during their treatment in the same rehab centre, the two never even dated, let alone discuss getting engaged.
Amanda first broke the news of her supposed marriage on Thursday, tweeting: “I am getting married and my boyfriend and I are going to be on the cover [of] People magazine.”
Matters reached a dramatic turn since, with Amanda allegedly being placed on psychiatric hold by her parents after she publicly accused her father of making sexual advances towards her during her childhood.
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.
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.
Amanda Bynes is creating some serious cause for concern with her latest tweets this evening.
The actress has accused her dad of making sexual advances towards her, writing: “He called me ugly as a child and then asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and i did not know how to respons and I said no and then … I was forced to live with my dad which was a total nightmare … My dad fondled himself in front of me so many times that i started recording him on my phone in hopes of catching him.”
The actress, who was accused of shoplifting and caught on tape erratically dancing in a shop, also spoke of her mum, who she says knew of the abuse: “My mom knows that my father’s literally and physically incestual towards his own daughter and the fact that she never called the police on .. Him embarrasses me no end.”
Amanda says she will meet with a lawyer and look for a restraining order against her dad, who has not spoken of the allegations yet.
There is no sign yet that Amanda’s account may have been hacked but hopefully the accusations are addressed soon by her lawyer.
We really hope things get better for her soon.
Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has revealed on her newly resurrected Twitter account that she IS in fact engaged and getting married!
A magazine reported the engagement days ago but it seems Amanda wasn’t too taken with their revelation and decided to do it her way.
The former Nickelodeon star tweeted: “I am getting married and my boyfriend and I are going to be on the cover People magazine.”
Amanda also said that she plans on suing InTouch for their report, writing: “Well I am suing In Touch for lying about me entirely … They continue to write lies about me and it really hurts my feelings because they are calling me insane and I’m actually really smart.”
The quotes InTouch claimed Amanda gave them were somewhat worrying but it seems she really IS planning on getting married.
However, this week has certainly not been a good one for the actress as she was accused of fighting in a NY nightclub as well as allegedly shoplifting from Barneys.
We really hope this whole situation works out for the best and Amanda finds a way to be happy and healthy.
Another day, another shocking story about Amanda Bynes’ exploits.
According to reports today, the troubled actress lost her temper in a nightclub in New York, allegedly attacking a female fan who got too close.
The 28-year-old was reportedly enjoying a night of dancing on her own in the Gilded Lily club earlier this week, when people began taking photos of her without her permission.
A number of witnesses told TMZ that Bynes turned violent when the fans continued to photograph her, despite asking them to stop, allegedly going on to attack one of them by scratching her neck and arms.
The woman told the entertainment website that she would not be pressing charges.
The actress has caused concern among her fans and family alike since her arrest for DUI last month, and the latest reports suggest that she is not in a good place. Indeed, the day after the alleged attack, she was photographed wandering around Bloomingdales minus one shoe.
Despite the headlines, however, the She’s the Man actress has urged her fans not to listen to press stories about her, taking to Twitter to write: “Don't believe anything the tabloids are saying about me. They dislike me for some odd reason & they continue to insult me every day.”
She added: “Treat others how you want to be treated. The truth will set you free.”
Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has told InTouch Weekly that she is engaged!
Amanda sparked rumours of an engagement when she was spotted with a diamond ring but it seems now it has been officially confirmed!
InTouch Weekly report that the actress, who has been having a hard time recently following an arrest two weeks ago, told them: “I am very needy for friendship and I hate men … I can now say I’m engaged … I want to be married and I want to be away from people.”
Her new fiancé is 19-year-old Caleb, and according to the magazine, Amanda can’t wait to start a family: “I want boys, for sure. However many I can pop out. I don’t want a gorgeous girl around. Then I [would] feel way jealous. Ew.”
Oh dear, perhaps someone was pretending to be Amanda when they said that?
There is something very worrying about this so let’s hope she gets any help she may need before walking up the aisle.
It was confirmed last week that Amanda had dropped out of fashion school and is no longer under the care of her parents.
The world's eyes are back on Amanda Bynes after another week of drama for the star.
Amanda, who was arrested for a DUI last week and hasn't been seen by her parents for months, was reportedly in a bad state as she waited for a flight to New York.
The actress was spotted in a restaurant at LAX airport, sitting alone and talking to herself. "Amanda was at the table by herself with all her makeup spread out across the table," according to an onlooker.
"She was talking to herself and putting on a ton of makeup," the eyewitness explained. "She would apply some, look in her compact and make weird pouty faces and then say to herself, 'Ok, that looks fine.'" Not good!
While her speech was clear and coherent, her physical behaviour told a different story. "She was really fidgety and really sloppy in the way she ate her food," said the source. "When she got up to leave, she practically bolted out of there. She had a really weird gait to her, she was power walking with posture like a pregnant woman. It was bizarre."
After her arrival in New York yesterday, the star was spotted walking along through Manhattan with a plaster on her face, looking decidedly dishevelled:
It's thought Amanda's wild behaviour of late may have something to with the fact that her parent's conservatorship over her estate ended on September 10th, meaning she regained control of her financial affairs. Time will tell!
