Amanda Bynes' Parents Granted Temporary Conservatorship Over the Actress
Seems the days of Amanda Bynes' bizarre Twitter rants might be over. The actress, who is currently under psychiatric hold after lighting a fire to her neighbor's driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif., will be getting help from a valuable source: her parents.
According to the Associated Press, a judge has granted the actress' mother and father temporary conservatorship over her affairs. This means Richard and Lynn Bynes will be able to control everything, from the actress' finances to her personal relationships.
Currently, according to the courts, a mental health court has control over Bynes, but as soon as she's released from hospitalization, the actress' parents will officially take over.
The arrangement is similar to the one granted after Britney Spears' well-publicized breakdown in 2008. After her parents, Jamie and Lynn Spears, were given conservatorship, Spears plotted a well-organized comeback, which included a stint on The X Factor.
Here's hoping the move works as well for Bynes, who has been showcasing a string of bizarre behavior since leaving Hollywood in 2010. In the last two months alone, Bynes, who starred in hits like Hairspray and Easy A, was arrested for both drug possession and escorted from a retirement home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., after drunkenly trespassing onto the property.
