Amanda Bynes' Mom: Almost 99 Percent of What You Read About Her is Fake!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Amanda Bynes' mother, Lynn, is speaking out for the first time about the troubled actress' mental health hospitalization and the many rumors surrounding her.

Lynn says that she has never once provided information on Amanda's treatment, and until she does, don't assume anything you read to be the truth.

"I would 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."

"Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis," she added.

"Unless it's a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda Bynes with a grain of salt."

"We truly believe in keeping our daughter's situation private for now."

Lynn's public words followed a statement that was issued Tuesday through her lawyer, claiming Amanda had been moved to a different rehab center.

Though the statement didn't clarify where is, some celebrity gossip outlets reported she moved from UCLA Medical Center to The Canyon in Malibu.

"Amanda is making great strides towards recovery," the statement read.

"The entire Bynes family would like to ask that they be given some measure of privacy at this time so they can focus on Amanda's health and well-being."

Lynn Bynes currently has conservatorship over her daughter, who recently lit a fire on a neighbor's driveway and threw a bong out of her apartment window.

"We appreciate everyone's heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time," Lynn added.

"Both my husband and I love Amanda very much," she added, concluding her statement saying, "We know that she will get through this situation."


Sorry Mom, but a good percentage of what the media has reported has been true. And we could clearly see her mental health issues before she even went into treatment, so it's not as if there is anything there that's really a big secret. Better it be mental health issues than just her being a drugged up super queen bitch criminal liar like she would be if it wasn't mental health issues. And believe it or not, people working at the Hospital or that know those that work there etc do let tips slip and they get back around to the right (wrong?) people and get published. A lot of it is true. And we know not *all* of it is true. We don't believe gossip mags 100%. But a lot more of it is true than what you're trying to say!

@ Sorry Mommy!

how the hell could you possibly know what is right and what is made up?


I have dealt w/this issue first hand I have some family members who are both BiPolar and or Szchizo effective as long as they are compliant stay on their meds see their thereapists they will be ok.


When the media was exploiting Amanda for her peculiar behavior I knew there must be mental health issues involved. I felt bad for her. It was never funny - no one should have to go through public humiliation like that. I'm happy she is being cared for and is on the mend.


Sound judgement on her parents part. Wish Amanda the very best.


Praying for you Amanda, please get well.


Her mother sounds sincere in wanting to decry the media outlets however I presume that's to make Amanda happy. This accomplishes little except confusing the public MORE! There must be a reason for all of her outrageous & CRAZY behavior over the past year+! Saying that 99% of what is said is untrue just makes the public think she is "normal" like that! I suspect there IS a mental-health diagnosis involved or she would be out of "rehab" by now. It would be more helpful to everyone if Amanda (or her fam) admits she has a mental illness bc it could lead OTHERS to get help too & what we really need to do is HELP EACH OTHER!
I wish her well & hope she's getting her mind frame centered. Being a celebrity with money makes stars believe they are somehow "better" than the rest of us when in reality they are FAR WORSE OFF bc they end up with serious "ego" problems.
We are ALL EQUAL! Doesn't matter your age, gender, nationality or race, profession or job, economic status (how much $$ you have), etc, etc! Ppl need to REALIZE THIS!


She was pretty and now a wreck, why we will never know the truth. Glad her family is there for her. Hopefully she does better. But I think her mom may be covering for her.


Love this girl!!!!!!:) Hopefully, whatever the truth is , Amanda is safe, and is or will be healthy asap!!!!!!! Love You Amanda. XOXOXOXO:) Good Luck. Ignore all ignorant comments. You will get through this.

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!
