Amanda Bynes was hospitalized on Friday in Los Angeles after her parents Rick and Linda Bynes concocted an elaborate ruse to get her put on psychiatric lock down. Bynes was in New York City, acting abnormal and giving cause for concern with regard to her mental condition.
Bynes allegedly attempted to shoplift twice during her time in the Big Apple. Bynes attempted to steal a $200 hat from Bloomingdale’s and in the same day, had also tried to steal a $128 t-shirt from Pookie & Sebastian. When confronted over the attemptd theft, Bynes asked the security guard, “Do I really have to pay for this?” When she was told that she would have to pay, Bynes paid via credit card and left the store shortly thereafter.
During an interview to “In Touch Weeky”, Bynes said that she had a microchip installed in her brain and that she wanted a dollar from everyone who could read her mind. The same evening, Bynes took to her official Twitter account to deny reports of an interview. Bynes claimed that she planned on suing “Star” and “In Touch Weekly” over their claims of her strange behavior.
Amanda Bynes’ strange behavior didn’t stop with her in-store antics, but became worse when the troubled star accused her father Rick of incest on Twitter. Later, Bynes backtracked on the abuse accusations, but claimed that the microchip in her head caused her to make the accusations and that her father had her microchipped.
On Friday, former Britney Spears’ pal Sam Lutfi concocted a plan with Bynes’ parents in order to get her put on a 5150 hold in Pasadena, California. Lutfi reportedly contacted Bynes and told her that she needed to file a lawsuit against her parents and to fly to California to file suit and confront them directly. He advised her that her car would make two stops; one to her lawyer’s office and the next to the London Hotel where her parents were staying.
Upon her arrival at Pasadena Hospital, Bynes emerged to meet with her attorney, but was surrounded by healthcare officials who have committed her. She is currently being held on a 72-hour hold with the possibility of a two-week extension. Meanwhile, it’s being said that her parents are in the middle of obtaining another conservatorship over her affairs.[Photo Credit: Source]
What more can be said? This is such a sad situation. I hope that she gets the help she truly needs.
Yes, this is all very sad. I’m afraid Amanda will need a long term commitment if she is ever to regain a normal life.
the little bitch love drugs
Her parents and people around her can only do so much for her. She is not a minor so she cannot be forced to do anything she is not willing to do.
Sounds just like me before I went to rehab. After 15 years of drug abuse I decided to go the pharmaceutical route thinking it would fix me. After abusing adderall and cycling on and off of SSRI’s I began to lose touch with reality. I even sent a few texts to friends to discuss what we had talked about while they were reading my mind. Had been without sleep for 10 days and my parents convinced me to go “detox” in the hospital while they worked on getting me into a program. After a shot of Valium the hallucinations stopped and I realized what I had gotten myself into. I prayed and made an oath to the LORD. Even if he didn’t get me out of it I was going to serve him and help others. He spoke into my life and at that moment the storm stopped and the atmosphere seemed to favor me. I graduated a year-long program and was hired by another program to pastor others who were struggling with addiction, or being released from prison. I did that for a year and a half and was then hired back by the company who had let me go due to suspected drug use. They hired me back for more money and a newer company vehicle!
I was never diagnosed with anything other than an anxiety disorder that may have been caused, or be the effect, by drug use. Who really knows what’s going on with Amanda and what her diagnosis is. It’s hard for doctors to make a correct diagnosis with a patient who would rather be getting high than helping themselves. It takes a radical change brought on by a hunger for a different life for an addict to make it. TV and music are riddled with drug and sex references and can be an obstacle to any recovering addict. There’s a lot out there and she’ll need a new passion if she is to make it.
