The latest news concerning former Nickelodeon actress Amanda Bynes feels a little like Yogi Berra used to day, deja vu all over again. Last year the Easy A star stayed in the news continually for her ever increasingly bizarre behaviour. Just like the most recently reported incidents, the 28 year old performer started out in legal trouble on the West Coast in 2012 and then flew to the East Coast where she got into even more trouble.
In 2013, Bynes also got onto her Twitter account and began tweeting incredibly strange things, although last year it was all about “ugly” people who annoyed the former star. She also tweeted about a change in her career and becoming a rapper. Singer Drake was the object of the What I Like About You actress’s affections and she posted on the micro blogging site that she wanted him to “murder her vagina.”
Amanda’s troubles became public last year after she was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles back in 2012 initially. Her problems ended after another arrest in New York and then she finished up a long spell of bizarre behaviour by burning a stranger’s driveway in Thousand Oaks, California. Bynes was picked up by police after being stopped and questioned. Law enforcement officials put the performer on 5150 psychiatric hold after she responded to their queries in a confused and illogical manner.
While on the 72 hour hold she was under observation until being released in to her parents care, although this did not happen until the initial time period was extended. Earlier in October the conservatorship ended and Amanda’s mother reportedly refused to continue acting as her daughter’s legal guardian. The entire time that Lynn Barnes was appointed the legal guardian of her troubled child, the woman defended Amanda against the press who reported that she had been diagnosed as schizophrenic and having a bipolar disorder saying that it was not true.
With these latest events, Amanda Bynes is reliving her recent troubles all over again and she may have time to ponder her descent back into the public eye with her deja vu trip into another psychiatric hospital. Amanda had tweeted that her father abused her sexually when she was a child. Lynn Barnes was openly upset at the allegations and later her daughter withdrew the claims saying the microchip in her brain made her do it.
TMZ reported that Bynes’ parents set her up to be taken to a mental institute in Pasadena, rather than Los Angeles. The former child star believed that she was going to meet her parents at The London Hotel but instead wound up at the hospital where she was admitted on another 5150 psychiatric hold.
The celebrity website have also reported that during the time that Amanda Bynes is on the involuntary hold order, conservatorship could be brought up again. This could be difficult since her mother has already stated that she does not wish to fill that role again. TMZ also caught Bynes on video acting erratic looking as though she really does needs help all over again. The former star can be forgiven for feeling a sense of deja vu with 2014 seemingly becoming a carbon copy of last year. Hopefully Bynes can get the help she so desperately needs this time around.
