Amanda Bynes‘ parents are desperately trying to save their daughter’s life – and her fortune. They went before a judge and claimed she’s a substance abuser who has become paranoid, and is draining her life savings.
Amanda’s parents sought temporary conservatorship over their daughter, saying she’s making bad decisions while she’s alone. She covers smoke alarms with towels and tapes windows shut to prevent cameras catching her smoking weekd.
Her parents claim she has “profound issues with her body image,” and is so “obsessed with the fact that she (and others) are ugly.”
The parents say Amanda had $4 million in the bank, but is blowing a huge amount of cash — she spent $1.2 mil in a very short amount of time. Amanda withdrew $100k on June 4 and another $100k on July 2 and the parents have no idea where the money went, but they mention they believe she spends “a substantial amount” for marijuana and other illegal substances.
The parents say Amanda doesn’t connect with reality, telling them she “cabbed it” from New York to L.A. The parents believe she’s homeless.
The documents described what TMZ first reported … that the parents are hanging their hats on the driveway fire incident to show Amanda is a danger to herself and others.
The court denied the petition for a temporary conservatorship Friday morning, because the judge wanted more info.
TMZ broke the story … doctors suspect Amanda is schizophrenic.
I hope the judge does the right thing, and grants her parents conservatorship. Amanda is in desperate need of guidance. I believe that’s the only thing that saved Britney Spears‘ life back in 2007, when she went off the deep end.
According to TMZ, the judge GRANTED the request to extend Amanda’s psychiatric hold for another 2 weeks.
