Amanda Bynes’ “Major Relapse” Threatens Her Health
Source says the actress is "hanging by a thread"
Out of Control
Is Amanda Bynes okay? That seems to be the question on everybody’s mind as the actress is said to be spiraling out of control.
Just three years after she was placed involuntary psychiatric hold, those close to Nickelodeon alum are worried she’s heading down a dark path once more after exhibiting troubling behavior behind closed doors. A source recently told Radar Online that “Amanda has been struggling to regain control of her life again.” The source went on to say that friends fear she’ll start acting out again.
“She seemed depressed, and then anxious and erratic. She claims she’s still taking her meds and is in treatment, but something sent her spiraling, and now she’s hanging by a thread,” the insider spilled.
Though Amanda has been sober for more than three years, she suffered a “major relapse” in recent months, according to another source.
Hopped on Meds
“The last time I saw her, she was feeding the homeless at a church, and she looked out of it,” one insider said. “She’s often confused as she’s on a lot of meds.”
The What a Girl Wants star, who retired from acting in 2010, has been keeping a low profile since seeking treatment for her mental health issues. Once known for her outrageous tweets and bizarre rants, she’s since taken time away from the spotlight and re-enrolled in classes at California’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
“She began taking classes in the fall, even though she was kicked out previously for showing up high as a kite. She seemed upbeat and talked about returning to TV,” a source revealed.
While an insider recalled “she was quiet, studied hard and kept her head down,” Amanda supposedly started behaving irrationally after announcing her plans to return to the film and television industry.
As fans know, Amanda revealed she had missed being on camera this year in her first interview since her hospitalization.
“I do miss acting and I have something surprising to tell you: I’m going to start acting again,” she said at the time. “I want to do TV. Maybe a few guest spots on some shows that I’m a fan of and maybe another TV show where I’m the star of it.”
According to insiders, her inability to land a gig since her return has put a damper on her spirits.
“She hasn’t been able to get an acting job, let alone a meeting with a producer or director, which has increased her anxiety,” a source shared.
