Amanda Bynes Dispels Rumors She Was Diagnosed Schizophrenic

Apr 9, 2014 10:40 AM


Guess everyone jumped to conclusions!

Amanda Bynes' attorney is shooting down reports that the actress suffers from schizophrenia, and is speaking out about her progress in a new interview.

    "There has been much speculation about Amanda's medical condition. She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private. However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors. For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it," lawyer Tamar Arminak told People exclusively.

Although she's still undergoing outpatient therapy, the troubled starlet maintains that she's not taking any medications and, other than smoking weed, has never had an issue with substance abuse.

    "Amanda currently is on zero medication. She's devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She's never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she's proud to say she's been marijuana-free for the past nine months," Arminak added.

Even the actress' mom is weighing in on the subject, and seemed to offer a bit of an apology for her daughter's bizarre previous antics.

    "She is very sorry for all the hurtful tweets, statements and actions that occurred while she was under the influence of marijuana," Lynn Bynes told Us Weekly via Arminak.

We're glad she's on the mend!

Amanda Bynes Gets Probation In Plea Deal For D.U.I. Case

Feb 25, 2014 08:05 AM


Amanda Bynes accepted a plea deal in her D.U.I. case on Monday after her lawyer appeared in a Los Angeles court and entered a no-contest plea to reckless driving.

The 27-year-old starlet's D.U.I. charge was dismissed, and she was placed on probation for three years, fined and ordered to attend an alcohol education course. The D.U.I. charge was filed after Bynes allegedly sideswiped a police car in West Hollywood in April of 2012. After that the actress also picked up two hit-and-run charges, along with a charge for driving on a suspended license. All of those charges have since been dropped.

The D.U.I. case was delayed last year after Bynes was placed on a psychiatric hold and put in rehab for several months for various mental health issues. Last November a judge found her to be mentally competent to stand trial.

All things considered, it sounds like she got a pretty good deal ... then again, she has had a pretty rough year.

Amanda Bynes went blonde last week, and now she's showing off her new hue with a wavy 'do! After rocking cropped black hair for the last few months, we imagine she's happy to have her voluminous tresses back!

Over the weekend the 27-year-old starlet went to a hair salon near her parents' home, and after that the group walked their dogs around the neighborhood. Sounds like a nice mellow day ... here's to hoping that the Easy A actress is getting better with her outpatient rehab and lots of quality family time!

While we're rooting for Bynes, she will have to face a judge next week regarding her DUI charges. She will also face charges back in New York for marijuana possession and for allegedly throwing a glass bong out of her 36th-floor Manhattan apartment, but no date has been set for that incident.

Stars, they're just like us! They hunt for bargains.

Amanda Bynes and her dad went shopping at the 99¢ Only Store in Thousand Oaks on Saturday. She looked healthy, but not so happy as she bonded with her dad during the afternoon outing.

The retired actress wore skinny jeans, a floral tee, black leather cap, shades and flip-flops to run the errand. She is still donning long blonde locks, which she debuted last week after ditching her short pixie cut.

The former What I Like About You star has been on the straight and narrow since her release from the Canyon Treatment Center in Malibu. Thanks to her parents, whose custody she was placed under, she's now on the road to recovery. Amanda is reportedly attending outpatient treatment and preparing to enroll in college for fashion design.

Another day, another interesting outfit for Amanda Bynes!

The 27-year-old actress stepped out with her mom Lynn near the family's home on Sunday, and she wore skinnies, sneakers, a quilted jacket and her favorite oversize sunglasses. We definitely dig the darker 'do on Bynes too -- we've seen her with so many different colors of hair/wigs over the last year, but this shade looks like it's here to stay...

While Bynes has been going to outpatient rehab and doctor's appointments since she got released from inpatient rehab late last month, she's going to have to face the music in approximately 4 weeks when it comes to her DUI charges. Bynes will appear before a judge on January 7, and she also faces charges back in New York for marijuana possession and for allegedly throwing a glass bong out of her 36th-floor Manhattan apartment.
