Amanda Bynes’ parents have officially given up.
TMZ reports that the pair plan to file paperwork within the next few days relinquishing conservatorship of their 28-year-old daughter before moving to Texas.
This doesn’t mean Bynes isn’t on her own, necessarily. Sources close to the family say Amanda will now be under the watchful eyes of a mental health professional who specializes in the management of people with severe mental illness. Her mother and father plan to give all rights to that specialist. They’ve also found another person to manage the troubled star’s financial matters.
Lynn Bynes and her husband are said to be leaving their Sherman Oaks, California home to be closer to their eldest daughter. Both Amanda’s mother and father reportedly feel they’ve done all they can do for their daughter and no longer believe they can provide her with the necessary level of care. They have hope that once someone else is put in charge of Amanda’s health and finances she’ll stop lashing out, attacking them via social media, and they can rebuild their relationship.
Neither Amanda nor her reps have addressed the change in conservators.
