Amanda Bynes' Mom Speaks Out

A lot has been said about Amanda Bynes, but her parents have been conspicuously tight-lipped about the former teen sweetheart’s bizarre actions over the last few months.

Until now. In an interview with People magazine, Lynn Bynes responded to the press that her daughter has been getting over her explosive Twitter rants and recent court-ordered psych hold.

“I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading,” she said.

“Unless it’s a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt.”

Amanda Bynes was place under a court-ordered psychiatric hold after she set fire to a woman’s driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Lynn Bynes was granted temporary conservatorship over her daughter’s assets and power over medical decisions.

“We appreciate everyone’s heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time,” Lynn said. “Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation.”
