After a long few years of trouble and subsequent rehabilitation for Amanda Bynes, the actress has found herself back in the news.
Since her DUI arrest this week, sources believe the former Nickelodeon star has gone off the deep-end once again, and are encouraging her parents to petition for another conservatorship. But according to TMZ, Amanda’s parents refuse to do so, and now she can’t receive the help she needs until things get really bad.
The site reports:
Multiple sources connected with the family tell TMZ … Amanda’s parents do NOT think she has a mental illness. As one source put it, “They think she’s a bratty kid who thumbs her nose at them and smokes a lot of pot.”
We’re told everyone around her parents are urging them to get the conservatorship, but so far no luck. That said, it’s impossible to put Amanda on a 5150 psychiatric hold until she creates a substantial risk to herself or others.
Let’s hope it doesn’t get to that point.
On top of it all, Amanda also was reportedly kicked out of the Fashion Institute Of Design and Merchandising in Irvine after she showed more signs of trouble, including coming to class high, ditching school, cheating, and more.
Student Rachel Loritz tells TMZ … Amanda often ditched classes … but even when she showed up, she was clearly high, and not good at hiding it … she almost always wore sunglasses and laughed out loud at inappropriate times.
We’re told the pendulum would often swing and she would then get in “horrendous arguments.”
Rachel says … Amanda paid fellow students to do her homework … and some took her up on it. Rachel says she rejected Amanda’s offer.
We’re told Amanda was caught cheating off someone during a test … and when she was called out she threw a fit.
We’re hoping Amanda gets back on the right track.
