Amanda Bynes’ parents have had little to say about their daughter’s erratic behavior and even less to say since her hospitalization. Lynn Bynes, who was granted conservatorship over her 27-year-old after an incident in which she set fire to a neighbor’s driveway in California, is breaking her silence for the first time and shutting down the rumor mills!
“I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading,” Lynn told PEOPLE. “Unless it’s a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt.”
Amanda has been hospitalized since July 22nd. She has been treated at various facilities and most recently ditched her home at UCLA Medical Center for a rehab in Malibu.
Bynes’ mother cautions fans, “Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe keeping our daughter’s situation private for now.”
“We appreciate everyone’s heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time,” Bynes added. “Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation.”
Earlier this week, the Bynes family’s lawyer released a statement through their lawyer saying Amanda is “making great strides toward recovery.”
