Amanda Bynes has reportedly been released from the treatment facility in Pasadena, Calif., where she spent the past two weeks. According to TMZ, the former Nickelodeon star was discharged from the center on Thursday, Oct. 30, after a hearing officer decided she was stable enough that she could no longer be kept on an involuntary psychiatric hold.

After Bynes' release, the site reports, she hit the Sunset Strip in L.A. Pictures show her talking on the phone and walking down the street in a puffy black coat, black leggings, and sunglasses. At one point, TMZ says, she went to a diner, where she noshed on fried chicken, salmon, and two kinds of salad. 

The What I Like About You actress' reported release comes just two days after news broke that her psychiatric hold had been extended for 30 days. Bynes, 28, was first placed on a 72-hour hold on Oct. 10; that was extended an additional 14 days on Oct. 13.

Prior to entering the facility earlier this month, the former fashion student alleged on Twitter that her father had sexually, physically, and verbally abused her as a child. She later retracted the accusations, tweeting that a "microchip in [her] brain" had made her say them.

Bynes previously spent six months in a treatment facility in 2013. She was released last December into the care of her parents.
