"Amanda Bynes pull it together dude," the 48-year-old singer, who has famously struggled with substance abuse for much of her public life, wrote early in the morning on Tuesday, May 28.
Though it may have been coming from a good place, Bynes, 27, wasn't very receptive to fellow New Yorker Love's message. "Courtney Love is the ugliest woman I've ever seen," she tweeted back. "To be mentioned by her at all makes me and all my friends laugh!"
Bynes was arrested in New York City on May 23 for marijuana possession, reckless endangerment and tampering with evidence — all of which she vehemently denies. Shortly after her arrest, an NYPD rep told Us Weekly, "Officers and building personnel went up to her apartment and she invited them in. There was a smell of marijuana and a bong in the apartment, at which point Bynes picked up and threw out the window."
Bynes, however, argued in court that the alleged bong was "just a vase." On Tuesday, TMZ posted a photo of the broken object in question, suggesting it looks like a bong.
The former Nickelodeon star responded to the article on Twitter: "TMZ is being sued as we speak. That's fake! They and NYPD is trying to frame me for a crime I didn't commit. There was no drug paraphernalia in or around my apartment on the day I was arrested . . . I'm drug free and love talking about it!"
