Amanda Bynes had a rough go of things in 2013, but she seems to finally be getting her life together and is healthier than she’s ever been. While there were plenty of rumors flying around about her, she’s decided to set a few things straight to get the truth out there.
The 28-year-old Hairspray actress asked her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, to address several rumors on her behalf. “There has been much speculation about Amanda’s medical condition,” the attorney says. “She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private.”
“However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors,” Arminak says in People magazine’s Apr. 21 issue. “For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it.”
After Amanda was arrested in May 2013 and forcibly hospitalized two months later, many of her fans wondered what happened to the former child star. “Amanda currently is on zero medication,” Arminak reveals. “She’s devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She’s never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she’s proud to say she’s been marijuana-free for the past nine months.”
“Her family is closely involved with her day-to-day life but they try to give her as much autonomy as possible,” Arminak says of the former movie star, who hopes to design her own clothing line one day. “She’s doing extremely well. Her primary focus is bonding with her family and being a student.”
Good for her! I’ve been rooting for Amanda for a while, and it’s great to her she’s doing so well.
