Amanda Bynes Refusing Rehab, Friends Claim

by at . Comments

It was clear long before people saw Amanda Bynes doing drugs and driving around aimlessly this week that she has been on a disturbing downward spiral.

Friends say she is "not in touch with reality" ... gee, ya think?

The star is accused of two separate hit-and-run accidents and was arrested April 6 for a DUI after sideswiping a police car. Her license has been suspended.

Still, she shows no signs of slowing down, and has rejected any overtures to get help. In fact, she seems to be partying and crashing harder than ever.

"Amanda is refusing to go to rehab or seek any form of psychiatric treatment or diagnosis, because it's clear something is up with her," a close pal said.

"She has been told by her agent and her dad Rick that she has substance abuse issues and needs to get help. She's a lost little girl right now."

"Amanda's completely gone off the grid. She won't speak with her manager, her agent, her publicist; she's not returning anybody's phone calls."

"She's obviously crying out for help, but isn't ready to receive it. She seems to be having some serious mental health issues and she's always out of it."

Here's hoping she gets help for them before it's too late.



@Southern Girl She's been offered help. You can't force someone to not go down this path. Trying to force them only results in them fighting you even harder and making it even worse. The person has to want to get help and look for it themselves. She's choosing to throw her own life away and it's her own choice. And for how she's going now, she needs to be allowed to hit some sort of rock bottom before she can start to climb back out again (sad but true).


BAJA: YOU say the most idiotic things, & I know others tell you this because I see it all the time. GROW UP!


why don't you get it: SHE HAS NO MONEY TO DO A BOOB-JOB, folks!!


...@ jacques....1st of all get your facts staight because it wasnt a CRACK was just a lil I know everyone smokes a little maryjane every now N then N if you say you dont you a damn lie....leave this poor girl alone...aint nothing wrong with how she is dealing with whatever she is going thru....let her get it all a min she'll be straight....


I really think her issue is drugs, not a mental health issue. She REALLY needs to go to rehab, and after 2 hit and runs and a DUI, she should be forced to go!


Why is it they can tale a blurry picture of you at an intersection with a camera and send you a ticket for $800 in the mail for failing to signal at a crosswalk but they have video of this b*tch smoking from a crackpipe and the police just shrug and say there's "nothing we can do"?


@Froggymom-You took the words right outta my mouth! And if she refuses help, commit her on that 51/50 hold for a psych eval. She MUST be stopped or she will kill herself & an innocent person. I pray her father does this immediately! Time is absolutely of the essence!!!


Amanda, please get your head out of your ass and get your life together.Before, something awful happens and you won't be able to. I think the general public is getting so tired of train wrecks like what you are becoming & like Lindsay Lohan . It's like y'all could be in the best role of your lives and no one will watch it.because you both have made such stupid decisions we are tired of it & your antics. Either straighten up or face the consequences. There are plenty of others who would want the priveledge of making large amounts of money for the work you do. You always go back where ever you were before. It would not hurt us in the least. Take Lindsey w/you she is another high priced train wreck that doesn't deserve the honor of what she gets paid for.


Apart from the crazy driving, it just sounds like she's stuck in a rut. If I had her money to cruise LA and get baked all day I probably would....she will get bored eventually if it's just green she's playing with


I think her Dad should have a meeting with Brittany Spears' dad and see if they can figure things out for her! Love her movies.

My favorite part of my body is my smile.

I say I never want to get married. I feel trapped with the idea of marriage. How can you really be with somebody forever? I'd get bored!
