Amanda Bynes' second psychiatric hold has been extended for an additional 14 days, Us Weekly can confirm. The troubled star touched down at LAX on Friday, Oct. 10, and was taken immediately to a hospital in Los Angeles, where she was initially held for 72 hours.

Just hours before entering the treatment facility, the former Nickelodeon star alleged on Twitter that her father had sexually, physically, and verbally abused her as a child.

In the series of tweets, Bynes accused her dad of "fondling himself" and called him "perverted." Following the accusations, her mom Lynn released a statement denying the claims. Bynes then retracted her accusations on Twitter, writing: "My dad never did any of those things The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he's the one that ordered them to microchip me."

TMZ caught the star on tape at LAX, where she told the camera: "I want to be like Marilyn Monroe one day…I actually feel like an orphan…my father should be put in jail for a very long time."

In 2013, the 28-year-old spent six months in rehab following a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold after a stretch of similarly erratic behavior.
