Amanda Bynes parents’ conservatorship remains in effect after actress’ Twitter tirade following psychiatric facility release

Fact checked by The People's Voice Community

Via an article in The New York Daily News:  Amanda Bynes will remain under a court-ordered conservatorship despite her recent Twitter tirade against her parents.

A judge in Ventura County, Calif., made the quick decision Friday after a lawyer claiming to represent the troubled starlet was turned away, according to TMZ.

The site reports that the attorney could not be Bynes’ legal representative because “she lacked capacity to enter into a binding contract” while under the current conservatorship.

The 28-year-old actress had tweeted Friday that she planned to go to court to end her parents’ control of her personal and financial affairs, but she never appeared. TMZ reported she was last spotted eating watermelon at a Hollywood diner around lunchtime.

Just one day after being released from psychiatric hold, the 28-year-old actress returned to social media Friday morning and started making disturbing claims against her father.

Amanda Bynes was spotted at Mel’s Drive-In in Hollywood shortly before she was due in court Friday.

“I am going to court today with my lawyer to prove that I am more than capable of handling my personal life and finances and I am enraged,” she wrote.

“I got released from the hospital that Sam Lufti and my parents arranged to send me to because my dad is humiliated by what he’s done. The police filed a report against my dad – I am not able to be in the same room with him. He is a sexual predator and he SHOULD BE IN JAIL. People need to hear the truth about who I really am – I need to show the judge that not only do I not need ANY help making decisions about.”

“So sorry you’ve been fooled by Sam Lufti and my parents, but they are lying about stealing money from me and i cannot continue to allow them to buse me any more,” she continued.

“Also Love Bugs, I look horrible right now because I had a procedure done under my eyes to remove micro cysts under my eyes, so I need to Wear a bandage To Court,” Bynes noted of her appearance.

A hearing officer reportedly said Bynes could not be held involuntarily despite her doctor’s insistence that she is mentally ill.

She was allegedly lucid and on medication and asked to be released.

Amanda Bynes returns to Twitter Friday with a disturbing series of tweets.

The “Hairspray” actress was placed on an involuntary medical hold at a Pasadena hospital on Oct. 10 after claiming that a “microchip” in her brain led her to falsely accuse her dad of sexual abuse.

Doctors treating Bynes had gotten a 30-day extension of her involuntary hold, but that changed Thursday.

The life and times of Amanda Bynes
Also this week, a probate conservatorship gave her mother, Lynn Bynes, control over her daughter’s estate while she remains in round-the-clock treatment.

In her court filings, mom Lynn Bynes cited the former Nickelodeon star’s recent DUI arrest in California and erratic public behavior in New York as she argued that Bynes poses a “substantial risk” to herself and others, first reported.

Bynes’ first night of freedom saw her chow down – alone – on fried chicken, salmon, guacamole and two different salads, according to TMZ.

She was also in search of a hotel.
