It recently came out from Amanda Bynes' attorney that she never suffered from schizophrenia. Now, her mom, Lynn Bynes, is speaking out about her daughter’s health and denying all the rumors that surfaced on the Internet over the past year, but some further research may be proving her mother’s statement wrong.
Lynn realizes that her daughter has had a history of unusual behavior, including a DUI, throwing a bong out of a window and writing very weird posts on social media sites, but Lynn believes her daughter smoking pot caused all of this.
“Amanda has no mental illness whatsoever,” Lynn told E! News. “She has never been diagnosed as schizophrenic or bipolar.” She adds that Amanda “is very sorry for all the hurtful tweets, statements and actions that occurred while she was under the influence of marijuana.”
After Lynn said her only problem was weed, TMZ decided to investigate further, and multiple sources have told them that this isn’t exactly the truth. They made rounds today after Lynn’s statement was released, and everyone they spoke to stuck to their original thoughts-that Amanda does suffer from Schizophrenia and Bipolarity.
TMZ even went beyond these sources and looked into the documented proof of her mental illness. These documents include the fact that she was placed on LPS Hold after a judge heard evidence from the psychiatric hospital that was holding her. According to California law, a person can only be placed under LPS Hold “when the person remains gravely disabled as the result of a mental disorder or impairment by chronic alcoholism.”
Both of Amanda’s lawyers also won her criminal cases that were based on mental illness. Sources directly connected to Amanda and her treatment facility said, “Amanda was given a complex Rx cocktail in a Ventura County psych hospital specifically for Schizophrenia.”
It’s unclear whether her mother is telling the truth or if these sources and documentations are revealing that she does in fact suffer from Schizophrenia, but sources close to Amanda have admitted that they are alarmed and fearful that her mother has taken her off her medication, despite how well she’s been doing lately.
