She's following in Britney Spears' footsteps!
Amanda Bynes is still being held on a 5150 psychiatric hold after starting a fire in an eldery woman's driveway and being taken into custody Monday in Thousand Oaks, California, and now medical professionals treating the actress are requesting a two week extension of the hold in order to properly evaluate the troubled starlet's mental condition, TMZ reports.
Sources close to the situation feel the 27-year-old is suffering from schizophrenia, and now her parents are moving to ask a judge to put Miss Bynes in a conservatorship, as they believe she is unable to care for herself and may be a danger to herself and others.
Her parents have wanted to gain legal control over their daughter for a while now, and although the She's The Man star's behavior has been bizarre and erratic for the past couple months, it wasn't concerning enough to place her under her parent's guardianship... until now!
Prosecutors will not press charges against Bynes for the fire incident, as they believe she needs serious mental help rather than punishment.
The wig-wearing should have been the first clue, people!
