Amanda Bynes is putting Los Angeles in her rear view mirror and is relocating to New York City, according to statements from a source published by Radar Online. The former Nickelodeon star has racked up five criminal charges recently and is reportedly retiring from acting and embarking on a new career as a fashion designer.
Although Bynes’ legal issues are far from settled, she is not required to be in court. If source comments are true, the actress hopped a plane to NYC. Recent charges filed against the actress include two hit-and-run allegations, two driving on a suspended license complaints, and a driving while intoxicated (DUI) arrest. She allegedly plans on making New York City her permanent home and reportedly feels that, without a license, living in the Big Apple will be easier. The ability to live a more normal life away from the paparazzi is also part of the alleged motive to move to New York City.
The Radar Online source had this to say about Amanda Bynes:
“Amanda’s parents had moved back to California long before she got arrested for her DUI. Her parents have been living in California for a significant amount of time before her legal problems began. Amanda hasn’t spoken to her parents in several months, and she has been living like a recluse, which does have her parents extremely concerned. She just cut them out of her life entirely and she doesn’t return their phone calls or emails. There wasn’t a fight or any ongoing unresolved issues between her and her parents; she just axed them out of her life for no reason.”
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, the beleaguered star was also allegedly dropped by her agent and her entertainment attorney. The Radar Online source also expressed a concern that the former Nickelodeon performer will continue to make headlines for all the wrong reasons.
