Amanda Bynes recently revealed that she has some issues with her conservatorship and plans on going to court next week to argue her case. Since then, a source has spoken out, telling Us Weekly that Amanda’s mom Lynn, who is her conservator, reportedly believes her daughter needs to “remain in a controlled environment.”
The source explained that Lynn doesn’t have “any issue” with the fact that Amanda has requested to have a hearing regarding her conservatorship. However, just because she doesn’t mind that her daughter wants a hearing, that doesn’t mean she thinks Amanda should be without the conservatorship.
The source continued, “Lynn feels Amanda isn’t in any capacity to make any decisions about her care or treatment. Lynn will request that Amanda remain in a controlled environment.”
The former Nickelodeon star has been under the conservatorship since 2014, after she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold. In late 2018, the conservatorship was extended for two years.
A court hearing for a status hearing regarding her conservatorship was held last year according to The Daily Mail. The 33-year-old was photographed outside of the Ventura County Court with pink hair while wearing a long-sleeved gray blouse and a black skirt. She carried a black and leopard print purse and smoked a cigarette. In some photos, the actress was smiling and appeared to be in good spirits.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Amanda, who has recently started speaking out more on her Instagram page, posted a video about her conservatorship. In the video, she expressed her issues with her monthly treatment in which she is reportedly charged $5,200 a month. Rather, she asked why she shouldn’t be able to see a therapist that accepts her insurance and would be $5,000 less a month than what she is currently paying. She also apologized for putting her problems online, but thanked fans for their support.
The video has over 500,000 views as of Sunday night. On Instagram, Amanda has 338,000 followers. You can see it below.
The video comes nearly a week after the actress announced that she was getting married. Showing off her left ring finger adorned with a diamond ring on Instagram, gushing that she was engaged to the “love of her life.”
Although Amanda seems happy with Paul, her family isn’t exactly ecstatic about the relationship. Reportedly, Amanda’s family is “not approving” Amanda to marry. Not only that, they reportedly have not even met her fiance and feel that he may be a rebound for the actress.
It is not uncommon for celebrities to have conservatorships. Britney Spears’ conservatorship is perhaps the most well-known with the singer being under one since 2008.
