A judge granted Amanda Bynes' parents' request to extended her stay under psychiatric hold so they could get a conservatorship, but apparently Amanda Bynes hasn't been drawing pentagarams on the walls or talking to roaches about drones while she's been in there. She's been talking to her lawyer. TMZ reports:
Amanda Bynes will not go down without a fight … because her lawyer just filed legal docs asking for an emergency hearing to let her loose from the psych ward … TMZ has learned. Amanda's lawyer just filed a motion asking the judge to release her from the 2-week forced hospitalization a judge approved Thursday. There will be a hearing before a judge at the psych ward today at 2PM PT, challenging yesterday's 2-week extension, and Amanda will be present.
Meanwhile Amanda's parents showed up in court this morning in their attempt to win a temporary conservatorship, but they got shut down — at least temporarily. The judge said there was no need to rush things because Amanda is already being held for 2 weeks. The judge wants certain things to happen before he rules on a conservatorship:
— He wants a one-on-one with Amanda.
— He wants the lawyer he appointed to rep Amanda to interview her and then come up with a recommendation.
— He wants to hear from Amanda's doctors.
— He wants to see the police file on "the incident" — sources have told us the incident in question is the driveway fire.
Meanwhile, her parents say she's a delusional drug addict who is wasting perfectly good money they could be spending instead:
Amanda's parents filed papers in an attempt to win a temporary conservatorship. In the docs, they say Amanda has become "extremely paranoid about being watched," and she covers smoke alarms with towels and tapes windows shut to prevent cameras from shooting her. The parents go on — Amanda has "profound issues with her body image" and is "obsessed with the fact that she (and others) are ugly." The parents say Amanda had $4 million in the bank, but is blowing a huge amount of cash — she spent $1.2 mil in a very short amount of time. Amanda withdrew $100k on June 4 and another $100k on July 2 and the parents have no idea where the money went, but they mention they believe she spends "a substantial amount" for marijuana and other illegal substances. The parents say Amanda doesn't connect with reality, telling them she "cabbed it" from New York to L.A. The parents believe she's homeless.
I'm not a doctor, but it should be obvious to everyone Amanda Bynes is schizophrenic with body dysmorphia. And that was obvious to me a while ago. But apparently her parents were fine with all that as long as she balanced her checkbook. I'm surprised they don't teach parenting classes. They obviously have a lot of things to share with the world.
