The actress Amanda Bynes had to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital after wandering without clothes and disoriented through the streets of Los Angeles.
Amanda, 36, was walking aimlessly last weekend, TMZ reported, when she managed to stop a driver, to whom she explained that she had just had a psychotic break. Later, she herself called the emergency service to detail what happened.
In a short time, Los Angeles authorities took her to the nearest police station, where she was evaluated. It was then that the decision was made to place her under the guardianship of a psychiatric hospital through the procedure known as "Code 5051", which allows mental health experts, police officers or family members to temporarily and involuntarily admit people who represent a danger to themselves or to others.
The situation of the actress from the series "The Amanda Show" (Nickelodeon) and the tape "Hairspray" (2007) is recorded days after it was known that she would return to the public spotlight. Bynes confirmed her participation in the 90s Con festival, which featured the participation of stars of the time such as Melisa Joan Hart, Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley Ian Ziering and Jennie Garth and Ian Ziering. However, she canceled her attendance and excused herself by saying that she had an illness that she did not specify.
Likewise, last January she announced that she would join the reunion of “All That”, a production that made her one of the most famous youth stars of the first decade of the 2000s. It was expected that she would meet up with her former teammates Kenan Thompson, Kel Mitchell and Nick Cannon, but now the event is on we'll see.
The young Californian began her journey in the film and television industry when she was only seven years old and grew up in front of the cameras. Her name appeared alongside that of big stars, such as the British Colin Firth (“Bridget Jones's Diary”) and Channing Tatum (“Magic Mike”). Similarly, thanks to her character in "Hairspray" she had a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination in 2008.
Withdrawal of recording sets

At that time, she changed her hair color to colors like pink and blue, put earrings on her face, asked Drake to "murder" her vagina, and got a tattoo on her cheek.
In 2013, she agreed to enter a detoxification center and at the end of that year, her parents won legal custody of Amanda Bynes, who lived in her guardians' house for a few months.
Later, in 2014, he accused his father of physical, verbal and sexual abuse, an accusation that he later retracted. "The microchip in my brain made me say those things," she apologized, while assuring that it was her parent who ordered the microchip.
The origin of the problem

For several years she kept a low profile until in 2018 she reappeared on Twitter to ensure that she had been sober during those years, thanks to the support of her parents and that this time helped her to think about what she had experienced.

It was the year 2019 when he had to enter a psychiatric center again for suffering a relapse. The reason? The pressure she felt when announcing her return affected her mental health and his progress not only slowed down, but also regressed a lot.
end of guardianship
Already with many victories in matters of her mental health, in February 2022 Amanda Bynes called for the end of the legal guardianship that her parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes, had over legal control of their affairs. They agreed and the law leaned in her favor.
This is how after nine years, the artist's parents left such responsibility on her shoulders, for showing great progress. In this way, the young woman followed in the footsteps of Britney Spears, who also obtained her legal freedom after years of imprisonment under the yoke of her father.
“It was no longer necessary,” said the judge who made the decision for Amanda to be released. "The court determines that guardianship is no longer required," the ruling could be read. Likewise, the actress' lawyer, David A. Esquibias, told TMZ that her parents agreed with her that she had made "significant progress" in managing her bipolar disorder. After the sentence, the actress uploaded an image of the headline that reported her news to her Instagram account, with this message: "I am a bird and now I can fly."

Problems were not long in coming.
However, in less time than a rooster crows, he began to have problems that involved the police. Amanda had a heated altercation with her partner, whom she met at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and she claimed that she was watching Milf porn and that she had a stash of crack.
That was a scandal and when the authorities arrived at the home that the then fiancés shared, they not only realized that the accusation was false, but also collected the statements of the false defendant, who assured that Bynes had stopped taking his medications.
After several months, the rough edges were smoothed out and they resumed their romance but without talking about a wedding. It was more of a "friends with benefits" relationship, according to the foreign press.
