Amanda Bynes‘ behavior is getting weirder and more erratic. Her family is obviously concerned.
In the last month during Amanda’s stay at NYC’s W Times Square, hotel staff has been buzzing with her strange behavior. “She’d come down to the lobby wearing a different wig each day,” an eyewitness tells the new In Touch, adding that one day an employee “found her curled up in the corner of the gym smoking — with no pants on!”

Over the course of the past year, the former Nickelodeon child star, now 27, was arrested on suspicion of DUI (Amanda pleaded not guilty and the case is pending), got her cheeks pierced, locked herself in an LA dressing room for two hours, was spotted walking aimlessly through Times Square with a shirt over her head and, according to an eyewitness, threw up on the floor of an NYC nail salon.
While Amanda has insisted to In Touch that she’s “not mentally ill,” her new claim — that she has a red-headed imposter walking around NYC exhibiting unusual behavior — is leaving many confused.
Amanda insisted in a tweet on April 3, which has since been deleted: “My hair is blonde, I’ve never been a redhead!”

Whether blond or red, an eyewitness details a recent blond dye job turned scary at NYC’s John Barrett Salon. “Amanda said she wanted to go blond,” a salon source tells In Touch. “When the colorist finished, she didn’t think her hair was blond enough, so she started rubbing bleach through her hair with her hands,” says the source. “Everyone was horrified.”
When In Touch contacted her parents’ home on March 28, a woman who identified herself as a relative called Amanda’s situation “tragic.”
“She’s completely resisting any help that her family wants to give her,” says the relative.
And now, Amanda claims she’s suffering from an eating disorder. On a Twitter rant last night, the troubled actress went off. Here’s more:
“I’m suing certain blogs and magazines saying I have a mental illness! They take pictures anytime I’ve gained weight then write a fake story!” she tweeted late Thursday night. “I have an eating disorder so I have a hard time staying thin. They write a news article about every tweet I write and I hate the pictures they choose. They repeat what I tweet then add a bad photo. Only use photos from my twitter when writing an article about me. I don’t read articles written about me unless I give an interview for a magazine. They’re fake! Don’t trust what u read on sites!”
Amanda turned 27 on Wednesday. I worry for her.
