AMANDA Bynes has been hospitalised.
The 28-year-old actress, who has sparked concern for her welfare in recent days, was reportedly placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold after jetting back to Los Angeles from New York City on October 10.
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the ‘Easy A’ star was met at LAX (Los Angeles International Airport) by a car service, which she thought was taking her to The London Hotel to meet her estranged parents, Rick and Lynn Bynes, and her lawyer.
However, her concerned family had secretly made arrangements for the driver to take her to a Pasadena hospital instead.
The troubled starlet, who was recently arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and accused of shoplifting, was met at the treatment facility by her parents’ lawyer, Tamar Arminak, and doctors placed her under an emergency 5150 hold.
Amanda spent approximately five months in a treatment facility after being arrested for starting a small fire in a stranger’s driveway. – BANG!
