Amanda Bynes Dropped By Agent, Publicist and Lawyer
Troubled former child star Amanda Bynes is on her own.
TMZ reports that the 26-year-old actress -- recently involved in a string of automobile-related trouble -- has been dropped by her agent, publicist and lawyer all within the last few weeks.
According to the site, Bynes employed the trio's services for years, but became "extremely difficult" in the last 12 months, and has been unresponsive when her representatives have tried to contact her. A source tells TMZ that Bynes isn't worried about her team cutting all ties, however, given that she intends to transition from acting to a career in fashion.
Bynes will likely be in court Friday after a judge urged her to appear in person for a hearing about her pending DUI case. (She is on trial after allegedly running into a police car while driving under the influence on April 6; she has also been charged with two hit-and-runs for accidents that occurred on April 10 and August 4.)
The California DMV revoked Bynes' license and her vehicle has been impounded.
"Why did I get put in jail and a Nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?" Lindsay Lohan angrily tweeted Sunday as Bynes' legal woes continued to mount.
Throughout the summer, Bynes has maintained her innocence, even taking to Twitter to petition none other than President Barack Obama for assistance in clearing her name. "Hey Barack Obama . . . I don't drink," Bynes tweeted in June. "Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end."
