By Gina DiFalco,

Amanda Bynes’ attorney, Tamar Arminak, has updated fans on the status of her health. Specifically, she’s clearing up rumors that the What I Like About You actress, 28, is schizophrenic.

After months of erratic behavior and some legal issues, Bynes was hospitalized in July 2013. She’s now out of treatment and seems to be on the road to recovery.

"There has been much speculation about Amanda's medical condition. She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private,” Arminak told People.

Her attorney continued, "However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors. For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it.”

Bynes has reportedly been undergoing outpatient therapy while living with her parents in California. Arminak announced that Bynes has been “marijuana-free” for almost a year.

"Amanda currently is on zero medication. She's devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She's never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she's proud to say she's been marijuana-free for the past nine months,” said Arminak.

As we previously reported, Bynes recently posted photos of herself in a bikini while on vacation in Mexico for her birthday, looking happy and healthy.
