Amanda Bynes has lost her bid to win back control of her financial affairs from her parents.
A lawyer representing Amanda Bynes was shut down in court on October 31, because, under the terms of her parents’ conservatorship, the troubled actress lacks the capacity to enter into a binding contract with a legal representative.
For this reason, the conservatorship which Amanda Bynes’ parents won earlier in October stays in place.
Amanda Bynes’ parents were in court for the hearing. The actress, who was released from a psychiatric hospital on October 30, was not.

According to TMZ, Amanda Bynes was spotted dining out at a Hollywood restaurant miles from the courthouse just minutes before the emergency hearing was scheduled.
Amanda Bynes, 28, tweeted her intention to win back control from her parents on October 31, writing: “I am going to court today with my lawyer to prove that I am more than capable of handling my personal life and finances and I am enraged.”
Her lawyer, Artemio M. Santiago, was removed as her legal representative by the judge, who ruled court-appointed David Esquibias will continue to serve as her sole attorney.
Amanda Bynes was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital on October 10 following concerns about her erratic behavior and mental state.
Amanda Bynes has been released from Las Encinas hospital, the Pasadena, California, facility where she’s been on an involuntary psychiatric hold since October 10.
According to TMZ, who obtained pictures of Amanda Bynes walking down Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard last night, a hearing officer Thursday “felt Amanda was stable enough so she could not be held involuntarily, so he ended the 30-day hold that had been granted last week and Amanda walked out the front door”.

According to court documents previously obtained by E! News, this “status hearing” was required by law to happen within 12 hours of Amanda Bynes’ release from Las Encinas into the care of her temporary conservator, mother Lynn Bynes.
Amanda Bynes’ presence was required at this status hearing in order to “address the continuation of the temporary conservatorship”. A February 24, 2015 court date was issued to revisit the status of Lynn Bynes’ conservatorship on Amanda.
Amanda Bynes, who was recently arrested for DUI and accused of shoplifting, could be hospitalized for a year.
Amanda Bynes, 28, was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric hospital in Pasadena, California, on October 10 and her doctors are reportedly going to court to obtain an LPS Hold, which would allow medics to confine her to hospital or another secure facility and administer medication against her will and lasts up to 12 months, TMZ reports.
A judge will grant the special type of conservatorship if they feel a patient is “gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder or impairment by chronic alcoholism”.
Doctors were previously granted an LPS Hold on Amanda Bynes over a year ago following a series of erratic incidents, including setting fire to a stranger’s driveway and dousing her dog with gasoline, but the court order expired last month so it is likely a judge will be asked to grant another within a week.

It is believes an LPS Hold won’t be sought until Amanda Bynes has been given a diagnosis.
It has been claimed that the troubled star feels utterly betrayed by her parents Rick and Lynn Bynes after they secretly arranged for her to be taken to hospital in California.
A source claimed Amanda Bynes says her relationship with her mother and father has been “destroyed forever” and she is furious with them for tricking her into seeking treatment.
She spent five months in a treatment facility in July 2013 when she was placed under involuntary psychiatric hold.
Amanda Bynes was released in December and appeared to be getting her life back on track until a conservatorship giving her parents control of her affairs came to an end last month.
Amanda Bynes was arrested on September 28 after police determined she was allegedly driving under the influence of marijuana.
A police officer spotted the troubled actress after she stopped her Mercedes in the middle of an intersection in the San Fernando Valley.
Amanda Bynes had a “disheveled” appearance, according to an arrest report.
Amanda Bynes is currently on probation from a previous DUI
She was booked into jail on misdemeanor DUI by the California Highway Patrol at 4:10 a.m. on September 28 after a drug evaluator at the jail determined she was under the influence of the drug. She was released on $15,000 bail around noon later that day.
Amanda Bynes is currently on probation from a previous DUI charge stemming from an incident in April 2012 when she hit a parked car.
In February, Amanda Bynes struck a plea deal in the first case and was given three years’ probation. The fact that she was arrested again while on probation could mean major trouble for her.
According to Amanda Bynes’ lawyer, the former actress is still going for treatment in a California hospital and will need 18 months to complete that treatment.
Amanda Bynes was diagnosed with schizophrenia, and her parents were attempting to gain a conservatorship, so they could look after her well being.
According to TMZ, Amanda Bynes is far worse off than it initially appeared. She could be detained in a mental health facility for a year and a half receiving said psychiatric treatment.
Her latest court appearance was delayed due to her mental instability.

TMZ has reported that the case will be a plea bargain, according to sources close to the case, and that there’s a major weakness in the prosecutor’s end. The case is in connection with the incident that started Amanda Bynes’ spiral, when the actress threw a b**g out of her apartment window in New York City.
However, Amanda Bynes’ mother is actually dropping her bid to gain a permanent conservatorship. According to sources, it’s not because Amanda Bynes is doing well, or that her mother is turning her back on her daughter, but her mom is already protecting her to the best of her ability without the conservatorship.
It’s believed that Amanda Bynes is also on something called an LPS hold, which means that her doctors have control over the former child star, more so than what her mother would have if she had a conservatorship.
So far her mother has exercised her right and has admitted AmandaBynes to a long-term stay at UCLA Medical Center to get prolonged treatment.
According to new reports, Amanda Bynes has been placed on involuntary psychiatric hold after allegedly starting a fire on Monday night in a residential driveway.
Amanda Bynes, 27, was found about 9 p.m. standing near the fire burning at a house in Thousand Oaks, California, according to reports.
She was questioned by Ventura County Sheriff’s Department deputies who determined she needed to be hospitalized on a so-called 5150 hold, TMZ reports.
Amanda Bynes has been placed on 5150 hold after starting fire in residential driveway
The 5150 hold is named after the California state code that allows for involuntary hospitalization for a mental health evaluation.
A person can be held against their will for up to 72 hours under such a hold.
The elderly woman who lives at the home said she had no idea what was happening until authorities knocked on her door.
Deputies asked if she knew Amanda Bynes or if someone had a vendetta against her and the woman replied no to both queries, according to TMZ.
Authorities told the woman that a young lady carrying a “little red gas tank” had lit a fire in her driveway.
The homeowner said the deputies told her Amanda Bynes had burned a part of her own clothing.
A male caller to 911 reported a piece of cloth burning on a gasoline tank on a driveway and a second female caller confirmed a gasoline tank and fire, according to a report in TMZ.
Amanda Bynes’ parents, Rick and Lynn, are considering going to a judge to seek conservatorship of Amanda, but must act take legal control quickly before she is released from her psychiatric hold, a source told RadarOnline.
The former actress was born and raised in affluent Thousand Oaks, which is about 35 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
Amanda Bynes also had a run-in with police on Sunday after she was turned away from a Thousand Oaks retirement home because she appeared drunk.
Staff at the retirement home accused her of trespassing and called a taxi for her, but the situation deteriorated, according to TMZ.
After getting in the cab, Amanda Bynes reportedly said: “Get me the f*** out of here. … I don’t have any money.”
The driver promptly evicted her from the cab and Amanda Bynes walked back toward the retirement community, which prompted a call to the police.
There was no record of an arrest, but Amanda Bynes may have received a trespassing ticket.
The taxi driver told TMZ that Amanda Bynes was at the retirement village to visit a relative.
Amanda Bynes underwent a psychiatric evaluation in May after being arrested in New York City for investigation of drug possession and alleged evidence tampering for throwing a b**g out of her high-rise window.
Britney Spears was infamously placed on a 5150 hold in 2008 after a public mental breakdown.
The move to hospitalize Britney Spears came after months of erratic behavior, including a head-shaving incident, speaking in a British accent and other bizarre incidents.
Amanda Bynes has her own lengthy list of odd behavior.
Amanda Bynes displayed another bizarre look for a court appearance, sporting a turquoise wig and an outfit more suited for a trip to the gym than to face a judge.
Amanda Bynes, 27, was pictured outside the Manhattan Criminal Court in New York City, where she is attending a hearing into allegations she tossed a mar***ana b**g from the window of her 36th floor apartment.
The troubled actress is charged with reckless endangerment and attempted tampering with physical evidence.
Amanda Bynes displayed another bizarre look for a court appearance
Amanda Bynes previously attended a court hearing in May, shortly after her arrest, wearing a long blonde wig.
She was arrested after building officials at her Manhattan apartment called police to complain she was rolling a j**nt and smoking p*t in the lobby.
Amanda Bynes was virtually silent during Tuesday’s hearing, according to TMZ, and the judge continued the case to August 26.
At her arraignment hearing in May, Amanda Bynes’ attorney Andrew Friedman told the court: “My client completely denies illegally throwing anything out of her window.”
And he claimed she was illegally followed into her apartment by police.
Amanda Bynes also made a series of allegations on Twitter in the wake of her May arrest, claiming she was assaulted by the arresting officer.
Celebrities live their lives under such a carefully examined microscope. While their fame is notorious and their faces are recognizable, there is an ugly side that the public loves to expose. They often have very public meltdowns and cameras capture every riveting second of it. They are meant to be a major source of entertainment, and it doesn’t make a difference if their reputation is ruined in the process. Take a look at some of top celebrity meltdowns of recent time.

It is hard to pinpoint the exact number of meltdowns that Charlie Sheen has had during his career. One of them resulting him in getting kicked off Two and a Half Men. If that isn’t bad enough, he is now having major issues with one of his co-workers on his new show, Anger Management. At this point, it is only a matter of time before his next major meltdown.

When Lindsay melts down, it is front page news. This time, it is all about rehab. She switches rehab facilities faster than the paparazzi can snap those out of rehab pictures. Most of her pictures are pretty funny, especially the ones taken right before she enters rehab.

Justin Bieber and cars are a volatile mix. From racing through his neighborhood to now running over a man in his car, he seriously has issues behind the wheel. Fortunately for him, there were no serious injuries. But, it is only a matter of time before he finds his driver’s license revoked. Oh, he still hasn’t retrieved his monkey from Germany.

Amanda Bynes has released her weirdness on Twitter. She has tweeted jailhouse photos, nude photos and gotten into some Twitter wars with other actors. The tarnish on her good girl image is all due to her irrational tweeting.

Lil Wayne stepped into controversy big time when he stomped all over the American flag in his latest music video. His is excuse is that he didn’t mean it. But this is one big insult that the veterans of this country won’t forget any time soon.

Chris Brown’s activities have expanded beyond the assault of Rihanna. He is now in the midst of some Twitter wars with other artists. His behavior has also been rather unpredictable, as he has also gotten into scuffles with other celebrities at night clubs. His once held “good guy” image is far in his review mirror and a new persona has emerged in the eyes of fans.

Mel Gibson had a serious meltdown during a project. The entire episode was recorded on film and posted. Included in the video are profane words, a rant against Jews, and a tirade against his ex. He later apologized but the rant still lives on.
These are some of the biggest celebrity meltdowns. The stress of being famous definitely brings out the worst in these celebrities. While their actions may eventually be forgiven, their meltdowns will live forever.
Amanda Bynes was pictured at Atlantic City at the weekend letting off steam with a group of party goers.
Amanda Bynes, 27, was pictured in a jacuzzi at the Revel Hotel where a few people gathered to get a photo, as she wore her trademark blonde wig.
After the pictures were taken however, Amanda Bynes was seen left alone playing on her iPhone as the group of people moved away.
According to E! however, the actress was not please when a man named Bobby Cohen approached her for a photo earlier that day.
Having taken a snap, Amanda Bynes reportedly said: “Sir, I need you to delete that. You can’t take pictures of me.”
Hotel security were called when Amanda Bynes is said to have not left the man alone and lunged at him in the hotel lobby.
Meanwhile on Twitter, Amanda Bynes has continued her worryingly bizarre posts – still concerning rapper Drake and his levels attractiveness.

“The reason I called @drake ugly is because he is! But I apologize!” she wrote.
She then revealed that her much-discussed nose surgery was yet to be completed.
“I’m in between nose surgeries! My eyes are black and blue because my nose is broken! I can’t wait for my nose to be done! I’ll share pics!:)” she explained.
Turning her attention back to Drake, Amanda Bynes tweeted an hour later: “I don’t like leading people on. I will not date @drake ever. I only want to be his friend. I’m sorry that I insult him but it’s hard not to!”
She had her first nose job last month, claiming she went under the knife to remove skin that was growing between her nose and her eyes, before following up with a second surgery and the actress has revealed she is “in between nose surgeries”.
Amanda Bynes tweeted: “I’m in between nose surgeries! My eyes are black and blue because my nose is broken! I can’t wait for my nose to be done!”
Just one day after eating her words against rapper Drake on Twitter, Amanda Bynes is back on the offensive.
Amanda Bynes, 27, spent much of the day calling random followers ugly, telling them she doesn’t care about them and lodging threats those she believes to be enemies, like: “If I don’t like you I don’t want you to be happy and I’ll go out of my way to hurt you” and “If you steal from me you’ll pay a price.”
However, when actor Jason Biggs finally weighed in on Amanda Bynes’ ramblings, the insults started flying again.
It all began when Amanda Bynes wrote: “If you’re not hot I don’t care about you.”
Amanda Bynes labels American Pie actor Jason Biggs ugly in her latest string of bizarre Twitter attacks
The American Pie star responded to her random tweet with: “This self-hatred really must stop, Amanda.”
To which Amanda Bynes retorted: “@JasonBiggs you’re so ugly I won’t talk to you.”
Shortly thereafter amanda Bynes ramble-tweeted: “You get turned on but what you are not by what you’re not.”
To which Jason Biggs responded again with this hilarious tweet: “Are you having a stroke?”
However, Amanda Bynes didn’t find it funny, responding both to Jason Biggs and another follower who had apparently crossed her with: “@TwitFlickR @JasonBiggs what a joke you both are good luck getting laid by anything with a vagina.”
Then celebrity therapist Dr. Drew Pinsky weighed in on Amanda Bynes’ condition: “I think it may be time to leave @AmandaBynes alone. She will get help if she wants it & if she needs it, hopefully before serious consequences.”
Not surprisingly, Amanda Bynes responded in her usual, childish way: “@drdrew WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? What kind of help are you referring to? You’re ugly and I want you to leave me alone!”
Amanda Bynes is claiming her very public meltdown, including a head-shaving and an arrest, was in fact a desperate publicity stunt.
On Thursday night Amanda Bynes, 27, apparently sent a series of text messages to her friend Jonathan Jaxson – who promptly posted them on his Twitter account.
In them Amanda Bynes appears to admit her increasingly strange behavior was nothing more than a childish ploy to increase her fame and gain more Twitter followers in advance of a movie role.
In one text to Hollywood publicist Jonathan Jaxson, Amanda Bynes writes: “All this has been an act and you know it! I am an actress and know what I am doing.”
In another she types: “I got to 2 million followers and now everyone wants me, I am smart and not stupid. Everyone mentions my name. The world loves me!”
Amanda Bynes apparently sent a series of text messages to her friend Jonathan Jaxson, who promptly posted them on his Twitter account
Given Amanda Bynes’ previous highly publicized dramas, it’s hard to know if she is being genuine or not.
If it is, she is likely to infuriate fans who have been worried about her mental health in recent months.
Jonathan Jaxson, a longtime friend of Amanda Bynes, posted on his Twitter page: “@Amandabynes has told tonight that she has been acting this entire time on Twitter to get attention as she prepares for next movie!”
It was Jonathan Jaxson who called police on the night she was arrested for allegedly throwing a b**g out of her 36th floor apartment window last month because he feared she was suicidal.
Jonathan Jaxson told Radar Online hours later: “I got police to be able to go to her home. I am told they found drugs and other things.
“I had proof she was suicidal. There were text messages and other things. I repeated all of this to the NYPD and they took it seriously.”
Later Amanda Bynes caused a stir by shaving her head and sporting a bad platinum blonde wig.
But it is Amanda Bynes’ Twitter use that has caused most cause for concern having become increasingly out of hand with her hurling insults at fellow celebrities.
In recent months she has called both Miley Cyrus and Drake “ugly” and said Chris Brown assaulted Rihanna because she wasn’t pretty enough.
Last week things went from bad to worse as Amanda Bynes was evicted from her Manhattan apartment.
Amanda Bynes’ worried father Rick has been hoping to stage an intervention but she refuses to see him.
After her arrest scandal, Amanda Bynes turned her anger toward Rihanna Sunday, posting a series of racist and offensive remarks about the singer and her relationship with Chris Brown.
Amanda Bynes, 27, briefly posted a number of tweets about Rihanna, 25, before deleting the comments.
The tirade began with Amanda Bynes writing: “@rihanna you look so ugly tryin (sic) to be white,” followed within minutes by a message blaming Rihanna for being assaulted by her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.
Within two minutes Amanda Bynes had deleted the first post.
Then just a few moments later, she attacked Rihanna again with a reference to Chris Brown’s assault on her in 2009, claiming he did so because the singer was unattractive.

“Chris Brown beat you because you’re not pretty enough,” Amanda Bynes tweeted.
Amanda Bynes then retweeted a post by Rihanna: “Look who came to see me!! My lover Stella McCartney!!!” to which the former actress responded: “No one wants to be your lover so you call everyone and their mother that I almost named my new dog Rihanna.”
Rihanna, who is known for her own feisty temper on Twitter, appeared to address the remarks within minutes of their posting.
“Ya see what happens when they cancel Intervention?” the singer wrote.
Amanda Bynes returned fire accusing the 25-year-old of doing d**gs.
“Unlike ur fugly faced self I don’t do d**gs! U need the intervention dog! I met ur ugly face in person! U aren’t pretty u know it!”
Speculation persists if Amanda Bynes’ unrequited love for Rihanna’s rumored ex-boyfriend and collaborator, rapper Drake, sparked the Twitter attack.
Amanda Bynes’ online infatuation with the musician has been well-documented. She famously tweeted in March she wanted Drake to “murder my va**na”.
Amanda Bynes now claims her arrest was an elaborate conspiracy made up by police.
Amanda Bynes, 27, has alleged she was “s***ally harassed” by the officer who arrested her on Tuesday night.
The former actress took to Twitter on Saturday to make a number of serious of accusations against a male NYPD officer, including one in which she claims he “slapped my va**na”.
It was reported that a spokesman for NYPD confirmed that they had received a formal complaint from Amanda Bynes.
“The matter is under investigation by the Internal Affairs Bureau,” the spokesman said.
Begging fans not to believe that she was arrested, Amanda Bynes said it was not the New York apartment building’s staff who called authorities but the actress herself.
Amanda Bynes wrote: “Don’t believe the reports about me being arrested. It’s all lies.
“I was s***ally harassed by one of the cops the night before last which is who then arrested me. He lied and said I threw a b**g out the window when I opened the window for fresh air. Hilarious.
“He slapped my va**na. S***al harassment. Big deal.”
While the NYPD is taking the matter seriously a source revealed that there are witnesses who discredit her account.
Amanda Bynes claims her arrest was an elaborate conspiracy made up by police
According the source, the building manager was with the officers at all times inside the apartment and Amanda Bynes was never alone with the male officer.
It took the actress some time to come to the door of her apartment when police arrived as she was already on the phone making a complaint but officers had entered her apartment, the source said.
However, the policeman, Amanda Bynes said, arrested her to cover up his actions.
“I then called the cops on him. He handcuffed me, which I resisted, quite unlike any of the reports stated.”
Amanda Bynes went on to say she was denied her legal rights and called police’s decision to send her for psychiatric assessment prior to charging her “offensive”.
“Then I was sent to a mental hospital. Offensive.
“I kept asking for my lawyer but they wouldn’t let me.”
Amanda Bynes claims the fact she was allowed to leave court on Friday was proof there was no basis to her charges – that include unlawful possession of mar***ana as well as reckless endangerment and attempted tampering with evidence for allegedly throwing a b**g out of her apartment window.
“The cops were creepy. The cop s***ally harassed me, they found no pot on me or b**g outside my window. That’s why the judge let me go.”
“Don’t believe any reports,” Amanda Bynes said in closing.
Amanda Bynes’ behavior has been increasingly unusual after she left California – where she was charged with DUI and other driving offenses – and moved to New York.
Amanda Bynes appeared in a criminal court on Friday disheveled in a long blond wig and sweats where she was charged with reckless endangerment after police said she threw a mar***ana b**g out of her Manhattan apartment building.
Amanda Bynes, 27, was arrested Thursday evening, after building officials at her midtown apartment called police to complain she was rolling a j**nt and smoking p*t in the lobby.
Two shocking mug shots have since emerged of Amanda Bynes.
The former child star initially posed for a booking photo in her platinum blonde wig but was later forced to remove it – and reveal her shaved head – for her official police picture.
Amanda Bynes scowled in both frames and appeared to have heavy bags under her eyes. She announced she shaved half her head in April, claiming a hair stylist “fried” with bleach. It’s unclear exactly when she cut off the rest of her long locks.
The officers went to Amanda Bynes’ apartment on the 36th floor where they said they saw heavy smoke and a b**g sitting on the kitchen counter. They said Amanda Bynes tossed the b**g out the window in front of them, prosecutors said.
An incident report quotes the officer as saying: “I observed [Amanda Bynes] grab said b**g, run to the westbound-facing window, and throw it out the window where numerous pedestrians were walking on the 8 Avenue and West 47 Street sidewalks below.”
Amanda Bynes then said to police: “It was just a vase,” according to Manhattan assistant district attorney Chikaelo Ibeabuchi.
She called authorities herself during the dramatic arrest, sources tell In Touch magazine.
Amanda Bynes shaved head mugshots was revealed as she appeared in court for reckless endangerment
“She called 911, saying cops were going to assault her,” an insider told the publication.
Amanda Bynes’ attorney for the arraignment Andrew Friedman told the court: “My client completely denies illegally throwing anything out of her window.”
Andrew Friedman claims Amanda Bynes was illegally followed into her apartment by police.
The judge released Amanda Bynes on her own recognizance and gave her a July 9 court date.
Thursday, Amanda Bynes was held overnight at a police precinct. She pulled up to court Friday morning in a squad car where she was greeted by a crush of media. She was also charged with attempted tampering with evidence and unlawful possession of mar***ana, all misdemeanors.
“I don’t want any photos. No press are allowed in here,” Amanda Bynes announced to the public courtroom.
Her lawyer said Amanda Bynes had no record in New York, but the judge noted she had several out-of-state cases. In California in December, Amanda Bynes resolved a misdemeanor hit-and-run case after entering into a civil settlement with other drivers.
Also in California, Amanda Bynes was charged last fall with driving on a suspended license after it was temporarily taken away from her after two hit-and-run cases where she was accused of leaving the scene without providing proper information. She has also pleaded not guilty to drunken driving in a separate case.
In releasing her, Chief New York County Judge Neil Ross gave Amanda Bynes a stern warning not to make trouble or miss any court dates.
“I do want to make sure you understand,” he said.
“If you get arrested again … I’m going to be setting very, very significant bail.”
“OK,” Amanda Bynes replied.
“You’re in a very, very challenging situation right now,” the judge said.
Assistant district attorney Chikaelo Ibeabuchi had asked for $1,000 bail. He said no b**g was recovered from the street below – a sign, her attorney said, that Amanda Bynes was telling the truth.
“There was nothing recovered from the sidewalk, clearly a search was made for the bag,” said Andrew Friedman of the New York County Defender Services. He said Amanda Bynes was followed illegally into her apartment and has made a complaint about police wrongfully entering.
As the judge dispensed with her case, Amanda Bynes said: “Thank you sir, have a nice day.”
Amanda Bynes then got into a waiting yellow cab ringed with photographers and TV cameras and left.
The former Nickelodeon star has been exhibiting erratic behavior of late with some eyebrow-raising public outings and online postings.
Amanda Bynes has been arrested for reckless endangerment after throwing a foot-long b**g out of the window of her 36th floor New York apartment.
The incident came after police arrived to speak to Amanda Bynes about her alleged mar***ana use on Thursday night.
Amanda Bynes, 27, was taken to a hospital for a psychiatric evaluation then to a police station for booking for criminal of possession of mar***ana, reckless endangerment and tampering with evidence.
Sources told NBC News in New York that police were called by the doorman who reported Amanda Bynes was smoking mar***ana in the lobby of her building on West 47th Street.
Officers responding to the call went to Amanda Bynes’ apartment where sources said they noted a “heavy smell of mar***ana and smoke”.
The officers were allowed inside by Amanda Bynes and when they noticed a b**g – a device used to smoke mar***ana – she allegedly threw it out of the high-rise window in front of the officers.
This led to the further charges. Under New York state law, reckless endangerment occurs when a person creates a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person.
Nobody was injured by the falling b**g.

Following her treatment at Roosevelt Hospital, Amanda Bynes was taken to a Midtown police station where she is expected to spend the night before a Friday court appearance.
Amanda Bynes was photographed in police custody on Thursday night as an officer escorted her out of a police station.
The actress was wearing her platinum blonde hair extensions and a black Versace sweatshirt.

Amanda Bynes was also arrested in April 2012 in West Hollywood, California on drunken driving charges after the black BMW she was driving struck a black-and-white Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department patrol vehicle.
She has been on probation for driving on a suspended license related to an incident in Burbank, California in 2012 in which her car was impounded.
TMZ reported earlier this year Amanda Bynes was evicted from her apartment for being a “building nuisance”, as neighbors complained about smelling mar***ana smoke from her abode.
Amanda Bynes moved to the Big Apple to become a fashion designer last year, but the fruits of her labor have yet to surface.
Troubled starlet Amanda Bynes was stopped from boarding a private jet this weekend for not having the correct identification.
Amanda Bynes’ driving license had been suspended and she had no other form of ID so she told the pilot to search her name on Google to prove who she was.
Witnesses at Teterboro Airport where the incident that took place said it occurred on Sunday for a flight to Los Angeles from New Jersey.
According toTMZ, the pilot had to check every passenger’s IDs but Amanda Bynes had no official government identification on her.
Amanda Bynes was then informed that per TSA regulations she would not be able to fly without it, at which point the actress directed the Google, with sources reporting that she screamed: “I’m Amanda Bynes!”

The pilot then reportedly called a representative from the airline to see if they could allow the faded starlet onto the flight, but the jet company was adamant that no special treatment was to be given.
This latest incident comes off the back of reports that she was spotted smoking what appeared to be ma***uana as she strolled around New York City last month.
And, two men, including a photographer by the name of Giovanni Arnold and another who would go only go by the name of “Joe”, claim to In Touch magazine that they witnessed the actress smoke mar**uana as she sat on top of a bare mattress in her bedroom.
But Amanda Bynes has jumped to her own defense, tweeting on Wednesday night: “That’s not my bed! Those aren’t my toes! My toes are pedicured!”
The full extent of Amanda Bynes’s troubled world has been revealed after the child star opened up the doors to her Manhattan apartment for an impromptu house party last month.
Two men, including a photographer by the name of Giovanni Arnold and another who would go only go by the name of “Joe”, claim to In Touch magazine that they witnessed Amanda Bynes smoking marijuana as she sat on top of a bare mattress in her bedroom.
The action took place inside Amanda Bynes’ New York abode, which they describe as “filthy”, littered with rubbish and take-out containers and with windows that have been blacked out with spray paint.
They also claim and presented photographs of what appeared to be empty baggies strewn on the floor.
“W**d was everywhere,” Giovanni Arnold told the magazine.
“On the bed, all over the floor.”
“She probably gets so high that sometimes she won’t even leave her house,” he added.
“One minute she’s cool and down-to-earth,” Joe added to the magazine.
“The next, she’s totally different – indecisive and she can’t hold a conversation. Mentally, she is all over the place.”

In the photographs from In Touch, Amanda Bynes is seen sprawled out on her bed, seemingly out of it with a pair of sunglasses covering her eyes.
In one snap she has a half burnt roll up in her mouth and her bare feet are covered in nasty cuts and bruises.
In the same image an empty plastic baggie sits in the corner next to her spiked Christian Louboutin shoes.
“She’ll smoke a j**nt halfway and then put it out and light a new one. Then she’ll relight the half,” Joe told the magazine.
The two men said they witnessed Amanda Bynes on several outings with the pre-rolled j***ts and claimed that she had a stockpile of the drug in her apartment.
The pair also claimed that they saw her do cocaine during their time in the apartment.
But when questioned by In Touch about the alleged d**g use, Amanda Bynes strenuously denied their story.
“They’re the ones into d**gs, so they bring drugs, but I don’t do them,” she said.
Giovanni Arnold and Joe told the magazine that Amanda Bynes’ living conditions were poor, with her house virtually unfurnished.
“Her living room is basically empty: She has two big purple chairs and a little dining room table, that’s it,” Joe said.
The photographer said that while there is one blind on the window, the rest are half spray painted black.
“It’s almost like she couldn’t bother to get more blinds,” Giovanni Arnold said.
During their night at Amanda Bynes’, the actress also reportedly obsessed about her weight.
“You can tell that she craves attention, but at the same time, it makes her feel uncomfortable because she is so uncomfortable about her appearance,” Joe told the magazine.
“She talks about losing weight constantly – she’s fixated. As weird as she is, she’s still very Hollywood: demanding and obsessed with how she looks.”
According to several past reports, Amanda Bynes’ parents have tried desperately to reach out to their daughter but to no avail.
Close friends say that they fear for the actress who has completely lost touch with the outside world.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who knew Amanda Bynes before she started with her erratic behavior last year, described the situation as “frightening”.
“She is a totally different person now,” he told the magazine.
“She’s effectively isolated herself from her family, friends and loved ones. Her life must be incredibly lonely, confusing and frightening right now.”
Amanda Bynes is reportedly back in contact with her parents after revealing on Twitter several week ago that she was estranged from her family.
A source told RadarOnline.com on Friday that Amanda Bynes “reconnected with her parents this week and it was a really positive talk on both ends”.
The insider elaborated: “Her parents are good people who are genuinely concerned for her. And Amanda misses them, so she finally called them up.”
The successful conversation may even lead to an East Coast physical reunion between New York City-based Amanda Bynes and her parents, who have remained in Los Angeles throughout her myriad antics.

“Amanda’s parents really want to see her so they’re thinking of flying out to New York as early as next week.
“The last place Amanda wants to be is Los Angeles. She likes New York and doesn’t want to leave,” the source added.
Earlier in April, Amanda Bynes alarmed followers on Twitter when she confessed she’d severed communication with her parents, Rick and Lynn: “I don’t speak to my parents anymore, they don’t talk to reporters on my behalf.
“Don’t believe anything you read about me unless I tweet it.”
Amanda Bynes’ recent bizarre behavior, which includes posting a collection of increasingly lascivious self-portraits from her bathroom, shaving one side of her head and publicly smoking marijuana, has prompted widespread concern from fans and family members alike.
The actress appears to be spending most of her time alone with the majority of her social interactions occurring on Twitter, where she’s accrued nearly one million followers.
On Thursday, Amanda Bynes, 27, added to the online portfolio by posting two snaps of herself wearing a blonde wig with a thick fringe and green streaks.
Amanda Bynes reportedly told publicist Jonathan Jaxson that she didn’t want to “live anymore” while “high on drugs” on Wednesday night, prompting him to call the NYPD in an attempt to assist her.
Jonathan Jaxson told RadarOnline.com he was beside himself with panic because she had told him: “I don’t want to live anymore,” and he took it mean she planned to kill herself.
“Amanda had called me and we had a private conversation, but it was clear to me that she was high on drugs,” Jonathan Jaxson told the website.
“Then, she said that she didn’t want to live anymore. I took that as that she wanted to kill herself. I freaked out.”
Jonathan Jaxson – who describes himself as a Publicist/Manager/Marketing/Consulting/God Fearing/Realtor- both called the police and rather less helpfully, tweeted the NYPD’s account to tell them Amanda Bynes was “soooo messed up on drugs”.
The media man told RadarOnline.com he wanted them to set up a welfare check but though they didn’t go to the apartment, he later received a call from an officer explaining that Amanda Bynes “was fine”.

Jonathan Jaxson added that it wasn’t the first time he’d heard suchlike from Amanda Bynes, and added: “But this time, I had a mental image of her in a bathtub, wanting to hurt herself.
“Then I saw a photo of her in her bathroom that she’d posted on Twitter. I freaked. I did not know what else to do.”
“I thought consciously about it for a minute and decided to call the authorities. I thought, <<I have to do something to save her>>.”
Jonathan Jaxson concluded: “When someone tells you they don’t want to live anymore, that in itself would provoke anyone who cares. I know that Amanda is a person crying out for help.”
It’s worth nothing that Jonathan Jaxson has a history when it comes to mouthing off about his celebrity friends or clients.
He had to settle with Kim Kardashian after she sued him for claiming she had a staged wedding, an assertion that’s now been disproven in the divorce courts.
But Amanda Bynes’ behavior is prompting cause for concern, especially as she had been uploading increasingly lascivious self-portraits from her bathroom before the alleged phone call took place.
Amanda Bynes, 27, appears to be spending a lot of time alone with her only interactions via Twitter and through these ever more revealing images.
There’s understandable concern coming from the Twitter community, who feel as though they’re watching a meltdown in progress.
After Jonathan Jaxson’s tweet, Jenny McCarthy, 40, tweeted in the mistaken belief that police were at Amanda Bynes’ apartment.
“Police are at Amanda Bynes’ house. I hope they get her help. Enough of this circus. She needs help. It came from a publicist but if no one can back it up it could be wrong.”
Amanda Bynes’ attempt at denial, however, just seemed even more worrying.
“@JennyMcCarthy you’re ugly!” she tweeted.
“Police weren’t at my house old lady! Shut the f**k up!”
She added: “@jennymccarthy I need help? What are u talking about? Aren’t u 50 years old? I’m 27, u look 80 compared to me! Why are you talking about me?”
Jenny McCarthy took the high road and wrote: “@AmandaBynes sorry girl. Looking out for ya.”
Amanda Bynes’ increasingly erratic behavior fails to slow to anything approaching normality, this time she’s been taking “selfies” of her wearing a very revealing lace bra.
Amanda Bynes, 27, has been given full access to her millions, it has been claimed.
The troubled starlet is splashing the cash after deciding to stop saving, according to reports.
Amanda Bynes apparently demanded access to her money – including the funds tied up in investments – a few months ago.

“While Amanda was growing up her parents and lawyers controlled all of her money, they put it away in investments so that she would be able to have it when she got older,” a source told Radar Online.
“Amanda made a lot of money starting with Nickelodeon and then other TV shows and movies, but she lived like a regular girl when she was young.
“However, a few months ago she demanded that she have complete access to all of the money so she could spend it, not save it anymore.”
Amanda Bynes recently told In Touch magazine that she is as rich as the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, who are believed to have a net worth of $300 million.
However, a source claims that in reality Amanda Bynes “is worth $5 to $6 million”.
“Amanda knows she has a lot of money. Before she wasn’t restricted from getting to it, but a lot of it was tied up in investments and banked for her future, but she insisted that she be able to use all of it as she sees fit and there is nothing anyone can do to stop her from spending it all,” the first insider added.
Amanda Bynes continues to display bizarre behavior and recently shaved off half of her hair.
