THE ‘Easy A’ actress, Amanda Bynes, was spotted walking around Sunset Strip, West Hollywood, last Thursday night, 19 days after she was admitted to the hospital in Pasadena, California, for 30 days.
According to gossip website TMZ, Amanda asked a hearing officer if she could be released from the facility on Thursday and the official granted her wish. The 28-year-old star was said to have headed to a diner, where she ate a meal consisting of fried chicken, salmon and two types of salad with various dressings.
What’s more, Amanda’s parents Lynn and Rick Bynes are said to have obtained a conservatorship for their daughter in court after telling a judge she had been spending “alarming amounts” of money on gifts of jewellery for strangers.
In the legal documents, recently obtained by TMZ, the actress’ parents say she is a “substantial risk” to herself and others, explaining her recent erratic behaviour, including shoplifting and an arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) last month. Amanda spent five months in a treatment facility in July 2013 when she was placed under involuntary psychiatric hold. She was released in December and appeared to be getting her life back on track until a conservatorship giving her mother control of her affairs came to an end last month. – BANG!
