A judge has granted a two-week extension of Amanda Bynes' psychiatric hold, while her parents will try to seek a legal conservatorship over her today.
If the judge, who held a hearing at the hospital where she's staying, declined to extend the 72-hour hold, Amanda could've walked out last night.
He did not, however, after doctors successfully argued that they need an additional two weeks to properly diagnose Amanda Bynes' severe mental illness.
Amanda was represented by her own lawyer, arguing for the extension to be denied. She will most likely fight any bid for a conservatorship, as well.
In seeking legal control over their 27-year-old daughter, Bynes' parents will argue that she suffers from schizophrenia but will not seek treatment.
This is because in her mind, she doesn't believe she has an illness, therefore the only way to keep her safe is to provide round-the-clock care.
