The former Nickelodeon star is “showing fits of anger” as she undergoes further treatment at a mental facility in Pasadena, Calif. According to TMZ, the What a Girl Wants actress is saying that her relationship with her parents, Rick Bynes and Lynn Organ, has been “destroyed forever” after the two created an elaborate ruse to have her committed.
Amanda Bynes is seen walking her family’s dogs with her parents on December 7, 2013 in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
Bynes’ parents reportedly worked together with Sam Lufti — the man who allegedly tried to gain control of Britney Spears‘ affairs during the singer’s infamous 2008 emotional breakdown — to have her fly back to Los Angeles after she exhibited bizarre behavior while out in New York City. Lutfi convinced Bynes to take a car service to what she believed was a law office, where she would meet with a lawyer about suing her parents for abuse, but was instead put on an involuntary psych hold after entering the building that turned out to be the Las Encinas Hospital.
TMZ reports that though Bynes has a poor relationship with her father as she believes he abused her when she was younger, she feels utterly betrayed by her mother.
The troubled actress’ psychiatric hold has been extended for an additional two weeks this Monday after she was placed under a 72-hour hold last Friday.
