Amanda Bynes' Parents File for Conservatorship After Actress' 5150 Hold
Amanda Bynes' parents, Rick and Lynn, filed court documents in California on Thursday, July 25, asking a judge to impose a conservatorship on their daughter, according to TMZ. If granted, the former actress' parents would be given decision-making authority over certain aspects of Amanda's life.
The 27-year-old Hairspray star is currently being held on an involuntary 5150 psychiatric hold. Earlier this week, Amanda started a small fire on a random neighbor's driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif. She will not be charged with a criminal offense, however, according to Capt. Don Aguilar of the Ventura County Sheriff's Office. "She's at a mental health facility now so we're out of the mix," he told MTV News on Wednesday, July 24.
Amanda has faced many legal issues in recent years, beginning with multiple traffic violations in 2012. The former What I Like About You star is also scheduled appear in a New York City courtroom on Aug. 26 to face charges of reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and marijuana possession. She was arrested in late May after allegedly throwing a bong out of her 36th floor apartment window.
The Easy A star has denied all charges via Twitter.
