Amanda Bynes recent behavior has been described as “tragic” by a woman claiming to be a relative in an interview published by InTouch magazine.
On her 27th birthday, on April 3, Amanda Bynes was snapped taking a picture of paparazzi and hiding her face.
To top that, there was a man in the background holding up a tabloid spread about her asking: “What happened to this child star?”
A day after Amanda Bynes stepped out on her birthday, alone and looking disheveled, the woman tells InTouch: “She’s completely resisting any help that her family wants to give her.”
The publication apparently contacted the actress parents’ home on March 28 when the interview was conducted.
Friends have allegedly said Amanda Bynes’ parents don’t know what to do as the actress has cut contact with everyone since she moved from Los Angeles to New York following some legal trouble and to pursue her dreams of becoming a fashion designer.
Amanda Bynes has reportedly settled two hit-and-run cases after reaching a civil compromise with her victims, saving herself from a potential 12 months in jail.
The actress was pictured on yesterday walking aimlessly around NYC by herself in a disheveled state.
Her newly tinted pink hair was mattered and hidden underneath a fur-trimmed hooded jacket and she covered her eyes behind dark sunglasses.
Amanda Bynes was wearing almost the same outfit that she wore two days prior – tracksuit pants, sandals and a cotton top.
This time, she had removed her white socks to reveal her unkempt feet which looked in need of a pedicure.
Her signature cheek piercings (microdermal implants), favorite sunglasses and rings were all on show along with her familiar pout and distinctive eyebrows.
Amanda Bynes had fans baffled this week after claiming the first pictures of her with rose-colored hair were actually of an imposter.
In a strange tweet posted on Tuesday night, Amanda Bynes wrote: “Fake or real microdermals same glasses! I don’t own those clothes and I’m a blonde! Haha!”
Afterwards, Amanda Bynes posted pictures to try proving she is a blonde once and for all.
But by Wednesday morning, the Twitter rant had been deleted, replaced with “Rawr” and a new image showing only half of her face, not revealing her hair.
On Thursday Amanda Bynes simply wrote: “When you’re in love, only one persons opinion of you matters.”
