Lynn Bynes has a few words for the media.
“Unless it’s a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt.”
The statement comes just days after it was confirmed that Amanda, 27, had been transferred from a mental care facility to a Malibu rehab center called The Canyon [via TMZ].
Lynn was granted temporary conservatorship over her daughter and her estate in August.
“Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe in keeping our daughter’s situation private for now,” Lynn’s statement to PEOPLE continues.
“We appreciate everyone’s heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time. Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation.”
