Events in Amanda Bynes’s life are continuing to hurl the star downward. Reportedly, the former Nickelodeon child star has lost her team.
The troubled actress was charged with two misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run last week, resulting in her driving privileges being temporarily revoked.
Bynes is also suspected of DUI, with speculation rife that her mental state is not healthy.
Despite telling reporters this week she’s doing “amazing”, Bynes has reportedly been dropped by her agent, publicist and entertainment lawyer after her erratic behaviour became too much to handle.
The troubled “Easy A’s” former team are all claiming it is due to her behavior becoming increasingly erratic in recent months.
One source told TMZ.com her management team hasn’t been able to get in touch with the former child star in a month and attempts to get help her before she went under the radar had all failed.
Their decision to cut themselves off from the star was reportedly made after they decided they “can’t help someone that doesn’t want to be helped”.
Amanda has had a turbulent few months, including recently having her car impounded and her driving license suspended while she faces charges of DUI (driving under the influence) and multiple accusations of hit and run.
The 26-year-old star denies she is responsible, saying she never drinks and drives, as well as claiming she is quitting acting, which could explain why she hasn’t talked to her managers.
She said: “I am doing amazing. I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line. I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don’t drink, and I don’t drink and drive. It is all false.”
Despite her assertions, Amanda was again involved in two bizarre incidents earlier this week, locking herself in a store changing room for nearly two hours and refusing to come out and stripping off during a gym class.
An onlooker in the class said: “Amanda stopped to take her T-shirt off, revealing only a tiny, black, strapless push-up bra – not a sports bra.”
“She then picked up her Louis Vuitton handbag and pulled out her makeup kit and started reapplying her lipstick and eyeliner while looking at herself in the large mirror.
