Amanda Bynes has agreed to lay low after her agent and manager ordered her to stop being a fixture of the Hollywood nightlife scene. Is a trip to rehab next?
She was then involved in another traffic incident last week. As she keeps on partying (and some say crashing), friends are urging the star to go to rehab.
"Amanda has been in a downward spiral for six months. Even though her dad publicly said she doesn't drink he knows she has a problem," says a friend.
As a source told The New York Post, "She is not the same girl. She just does whatever she wants. Friends are concerned; it's not the Amanda they know.”
"It's truly sad to witness. She is refusing to go [to rehab]."
Says another alleged source close to the situation:
"Amanda was just going out without thinking after her DUI arrest. She was spotted texting and driving and just putting herself in really horrible situations."
"Amanda's agent and manager have ordered her to lay low and avoid clubs. She desperately wanted to go to Coachella last weekend and she has been told not to go the second weekend of the festival, but she is an adult.""It would just look very bad if she were to go against her advisers and end up going to Coachella. She has promised that she won't go and she hasn't been spotted at any nightclubs in almost a week, which is a beginning for her."
In any case, Amanda did agree to lay low ... as far as we know. Perhaps the comparisons to another troubled Hollywood starlet finally struck a nerve?
"Amanda thinks its extremely unfair that people are calling her the new Lindsay Lohan," says a source. "Comparisons between the two are just ridiculous as Amanda has never been arrested for drug possession or for stealing anything."
"Yes, she got arrested for a DUI, but that doesn't mean she is headed down the same road. Amanda doesn't harbor negative feelings towards Lindsay, she doesn't even know her, she just thinks it's sexist that the two are being compared."
"Men in Hollywood that get arrested for DUI don't face the same scrutiny that women do; that really irks Amanda. She isn't taking the DUI lightly."
