Troubled actress Amanda Bynes’ parents, Rick and Lynn, are on their last legs. The two plan to plead with the judge overseeing their case and ask to be granted temporary conservatorship of their daughter. They believe she’ll die if it’s not granted.

The hearing is scheduled to take place this morning in Ventura County, California. The judge has made indications that he would like to speak to Amanda himself and it’s believed that she has agreed to attend.

According to RadarOnline, Rick and Lynn “plan on telling the judge the only hope they have to save Amanda, is if a temporary conservatorship is granted. It’s clear to anyone that Amanda has been on a downward spiral for the pas several years, and she hasn’t been able to grasp reality,” a source told Radar.

“Unless Lynn Bynes is given conservatorship, she believes that Amanda will die. This is the only way Amanda will get the help she needs. She isn’t in the right frame of mind to do it herself.”

Amanda has been held on 5150, a psychiatric hold, since she started a fire in the driveway of a stranger in California. Authorities believed she was in need of mental evaluation. Her short hold was extended to two weeks after she reportedly began responding to medications for schizophrenia; the judge and doctors agreed she needed to be monitored more closely to ensure she was responding.

If the judge denies Amanda’s mother temporary conservatorship, she will likely be released from the facility by Saturday.

Many celebrities and former friends of Amanda, including Nick Cannon, have sent well wishes for the troubled starlet. Cannon penned a heartfelt letter to the retired actress.

We wish Amanda the best and hope she gets well soon!
