Amanda Bynes’ parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes, have filed documents asking a California judge to impose a conservatorship on their daughter due to her apparent mental illness. The concerned couple is scheduled to appear in court today, reports TMZ.
Officials checked the Hairspray star into the hospital against her will on a 5150 hold after she lit gasoline on fire in an elderly stranger’s driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif., on July 22.
As OKMagazine.com has reported, the 27-year-old’s behavior has continued to be erratic while under the observation of doctors and she is exhibiting paranoid behavior and signs of schizophrenia.
According to TMZ, Amanda claims that “there’s a good Amanda and a bad Amanda.”
On the occasions she is “bad Amanda” the actress reportedly appears to mimic a person who is undergoing an exorcism, biting herself and pulling at her body as if to get rid of the “demon” she believes to be inside her.
Amanda is expected to remain in the hospital for quite some time as her loved ones and medical professionals try to help.
