Amanda Bynes has been recently given full access to her millions and the troubled starlet is splashing the cash after deciding to stop saving, according to reports.
Amanda Bynes, 27, apparently demanded access to her money – including the funds tied up in investments – a few months ago.
A source told Radar Online: “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.”

“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.”
She 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, according to sources, 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 insider told Radar Online.
“Amanda can do whatever she wants for a while with all of her money but it isn’t going to last forever if she spends the way she has been lately,” the source added.
“She’s rich but she could find herself in financial trouble pretty soon.”

The relatively polished look is a far cry from the mess of tangled extensions Amanda Bynes previously bared on frequent strolls through New York City.
Amanda Bynes has become quite a controversial figure since her departure from acting and subsequent move to the East Coast.
Most recently Amanda Bynes baffled readers of In Touch by telling the magazine that she’s “in the Mary-Kate and Ashley type of wealth” despite being worth an estimated $5 to $6 million compared to the twins’ $300 million.
Amanda Bynes made another bizarre comment on her Twitter page, blasting “ugly ex” Kid Cudi, and slamming Complex Magazine for putting an “awful” photo of Aubrey Plaza on their cover.
“Stop acting like I’m doing something wrong,” Amanda Bynes starts in her post to the magazine.
The men’s magazine recently posted an article titled, “Amanda Bynes Either Needs Help, Or Is Trolling Us All” about the bizarre video the oddball 27-year-old shared of herself “getting ready” for a night out.
“I’m obsessed with myself on twitter. Also, my video last night was perfection,” she wrote.
“I’m so sick of the articles u write about me. I want every fake article deleted,” Amanda Bynes continued, and went on to mention Kid Cudi, who is regularly covered by Complex Magazine.
“Ur [bleep] whipped by my ugly ex who’s looks and talent have always been questionable to me, him being the ugly duckling that he is and all,” she wrote.
“U quote him non stop, then take professional shots of him for ur covers, his best photos aren’t [bleep] compared to mine at my best.”
Amanda Bynes and Kid Cudi were linked in 2010
Amanda Bynes then directed vitriol at the magazine’s cover girl: “The photo u chose of Aubrey for her cover is awful. You make people look bad, stop acting like you know anything about what men like.”
She then boasts about her own musical ability compared to the Day ‘N’ Nite rapper, whose real name is Scott Mescudi.
“I don’t stop getting followed or hit on every place I go. I’m not trying to sing, but if I did (I got offered an Interscope record deal right after I filmed Hairspray which you might know if you sat down and did a normal interview. I still might take them up on their offer) get the facts as opposed to talking [bleep].”
“My music is going to be sicker then whatever the [bleep] kind of music Scott tries to do. Stop writing articles without speaking to me first.”
Incidentally, Complex Magazine made a 30-slide gallery of Amanda Bynes’ “Weirdest Tweets” in 2012.
A few hours after the long rant, Amanda Bynes posted a close-up of herself wearing heavy makeup and winking at the camera. She captioned the picture: “Rawr!”
Amanda Bynes and Kid Cudi were linked in 2010 after she tweeted in February: “It’s amazing how good it feels when someone knows how to love your body! I am having withdrawals from a certain guy lol :).”
She added: “So turns out i prefer chocolate over vanilla. interesting.”
In his 2010 song, Cudder is Back, Kid Cudi rapped: “Wanna know about me and Amanda Bynes (Amanda please)…It don’t matter my n***a, I love them all. As long as she don’t need stupid amounts of makeup to make up the self esteem.”

It is surprising that she even managed to have the beauty process done as she claimed to have shaved her head recently.
After a publication posted snaps which Amanda Bynes deemed less than her best image, she went on a rant online defending her appearance and even pointed out that she was aware of her hardly polished look.
Amanda Bynes wrote on Twitter: “please post my pics anytime! I had to shave my head because of hair damage from someone @ John Barrett so I’m not loving my paparazzi pics for a few years! I have extensions but you can see.”

A few hours later she added her pals were not acting as a channel for her to speak to the public either.
“My friends don’t speak on my behalf either. Please don’t read anything about me needing help. That offends me. Follow me on twitter!”
Staff at a hairdressing salon Amanda Bynes visited on Tuesday admitted that she looked to be “under the influence of something”.
“I feel sorry for her,” the stylist told Radaronline.com.

Amanda Bynes’ actions are reminiscent of pop star Britney Spears’ 2007 breakdown where she shockingly shaved her head at a salon.
