Amanda Bynes is officially out of the psychiatric facility, and showing us why she was committed there in the first place with a Twitter rant for the ages.

To the surprise and dismay of many, Amanda Bynes was released from psychiatric care last night after the facility decided they could not hold her there.

She had been placed under a 30-day involuntary hold at the Pasadena, Calif., hospital, but lobbied to be released and officials shockingly obliged.

Believing she was lucid and that legally she could not be held there any longer, he involuntary commitment was invalidated and she was cut loose.

Almost immediately, we're seeing why that decision will be immediately second guessed and may even prove extraordinarily dangerous before long.

In an epic and ongoing Twitter rant, the actress accused her father of sexual assault for the second time, and announced plans to get out of her conservatorship.

Here's what she's had to say in the last three hours:

Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has been released from the psychiatric facility where she had been held for weeks and was seen walking around alone last night.

Photographers captured her roaming the Sunset Strip late Thursday in L.A.

Needless to say, her abrupt release marks a stunning and dubious turn of events given all we know about her recent actions and medical prognosis.

According to reports, the 28-year-old went before a hearing officer at the psychiatric facility in Pasadena where she was recently placed under a 5150 hold.

She asked to be released, and she was. Why?

Bynes been on her medication and appears lucid, even though her psychiatric hold had been extended by 30 days and doctors believe she is seriously mentally ill.  

The hearing officer evidently felt otherwise, ENDING the 30-day hold that had been granted just last week to extend the 72-hour and 14-day periods prior to that.

Just like that, Amanda walked out the door.

Yesterday, we learned that Amanda Bynes psychiatric hold was extended for by 30 days, with mental health professionals reserving the right to extend the hold even longer if need be.

That may now prove unnecessary, however, as Amanda's parents have reportedly been awarded a conservatorship, which gives them full legal control over the life and decisions of their 28-year-old daughter.

Amanda has now been in a psychiatric care facility against her will for nearly three weeks. She was conned into entering the facility by her parents, with the aid of former Britney Spears manager Sam Lufti.

Sources say Bynes' parents have been receiving legal advice from Lufti, and the controversial figure may have helped them finally win the conservatorship they've been working toward for weeks.

Actress Amanda Bynes is in rough shape mentally, and as a result, her doctors will keep the 28-year-old under psychiatric hold for another month at least.

They quietly sought and were granted an order from a judge that allows them to extend Bynes' involuntary commitment for 30 days starting today.

It likely won't end after that period, either, which sadly is not a big shock.

Since she was conned by her parents and Sam Lutfi into returning to L.A., she has been in a psychiatric facility against her will for the last 17 days.

The first 72 hours were followed by a two-week extension of the 5150 hold.

Had an extension not been granted, she would have walked yesterday.

Her psychiatrists claimed she is "very ill" and in no shape to care for herself, and the judge overseeing her situation agreed to the extension Monday.

Sam Lutfi, Amanda Bynes' friend and Britney Spears' former "manager," is defending his "work" with the stars in a bizarre open letter that has Spears' camp on high alert.

Evil Lurks Behind Her

Lutfi writes on XOJane (dot) com that so many of the things written about his relationships with troubled celebrities like those two are mere misconceptions.

“I’ve worked in Hollywood for a long time," says Lutfi, who was instrumental in getting Amanda Bynes placed under a 5150 hold earlier this month.

"I am a problem solver, and I care about helping people get out of what may seem like some of their more difficult places in life," writes the mysterious character.

"Over the years these experiences have led me to see what happens when too much fame and too much money can sometimes get the best of celebrities."

This, Sam Lutfi says, is "why you have seen me associated with some of the more famous celebrities when they are in their most trying hours."

Last week, Amanda Bynes accused her father of sexual assault in a series of shockingly graphic tweets.

She later retracted the statements, but blamed her mental instability on a "microchip" in her brain, which she claimed her father had implanted.

Amanda Bynes: Mentally Ill?

Amanda is clearly suffering from sort of psychological ailment - for which she's currently receiving treatment - but that doesn't mean that the target of her rant was chosen arbitrarily.

Friends of Amanda's have stated in the past that the former child star had a strained relationship with her parents and that things came to a head when during Bynes' conservatorship last year.

With today's news that Amanda Bynes may face one year of involuntary confinement, the former child star's struggles with mental illness seem more tragically real than ever before.

Several celebrities have offered thoughts, prayers, and words of encouragement to Amanda and her family. Thus far, the support has mostly come from former co-stars, such as Nick Cannon, who spoke about Bynes in glowing terms during a recent interview. 

Now, famous old-school Nickelodeon fans who have never even met Bynes are publicly singing the actress' praises and expressing their hopes that she's one day able to return to the career that made her a star.

Amanda Bynes is likely headed for another conservatorship, but her parents won't be at the helm. Her doctors want her confined and medicated for up to a YEAR.

Amanda Bynes
Amanda Bynes was a delightful child star with a bright career whose hard-partying ways and obvious mental issues have made for many sad headlines in recent years.

After her July 2013 hospitalization, her parents Lynn and Rick were given a conservatorship, granting them control over her legal, medical and fiscal decisions.

She was ultimately released, only to go off the rails once more when the conservatorship lapsed last month. Now here she is, under a 5150 psych hold again.

Given how pissed Bynes is at her parents, and how severe her mental illness appears to be, another conservatorship managed by doctors looks imminent.

One that can keep her confined and medicated for up to a year against her will. The plan, according to TMZ sources, is to place her under an LPS Hold.

At the behest of doctors, a judge can sign off on this if a patient is "gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder or impairment by chronic alcoholism."

Sam Lutfi played a key role in engineering the ruse that landed Amanda Bynes in treatment, but is his continued involvement in her saga cause for concern?

As previously reported, Amanda Bynes was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold at a Pasadena mental hospital last week after flying back to Los Angeles from N.Y.

Her friend Sam Lutfi, who was once Britney Spears' manager and bizarrely linked to that star at the time of her 5150 hold, was instrumental in getting her there.

Not surprisingly, Bynes is far from pleased about all of this.

Already deeply distrustful of her family and friends, she's incredibly pissed at her parents and the ruse that landed her in a mental institution against her will.

Yet Lutfi, who convinced her she was meeting with an attorney to sue her parents, is reportedly still close to Bynes' parents and is even giving them advice.

On Friday, Amanda Bynes was placed on 5150 psychiatric hold and committed to a hospital following two weeks of increasingly erratic behavior.

Amanda's parents were initially unable to prove that the child star presented a threat to herself or others, but that quickly after Bynes accused her father of sexual assault, then blamed the false allegation on a microchip that had been planted in her brain.

Bynes's parents worked with former Britney Spears manager Sam Lufti to convince their daughter to fly to Los Angeles under false pretenses. Once in LA, she was placed on a 3-day psychiatric hold.

A hearing was held yesterday to determine if the hold should be extended to 14 days, and remarkably, despite her obvious mental instability as of late, Bynes was nearly able to convince a judge that she should be released from psychiatric care.
