Amanda Bynes’ parents have stayed silent throughout their daughter’s mental health breakdown, but now that she’s been in a treatment for some time, her mother is breaking her silence.
Lynn Bynes opened up about the media scrutiny her daughter has endured throughout this ordeal, saying that mostly everything we read is “false or midleading.”
Just days after it was reported the former actress, 27, transferred from the UCLA Medical Center to a treatment facility in Malibu called The Canyon, Lynn is clearing the air.
"I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading,” she told People.
She added, "Unless it's a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt."
The What I Like About You star has been in treatment since an incident on July 22 that saw her starting a fire in her neighbor’s driveway. Her mother would like to keep details of her treatment private, saying, “Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe in keeping our daughter's situation private for now."
"We appreciate everyone's heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time. Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation,” she concluded.
