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.

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.

Earlier today, Amanda Bynes accused her father of sexual abuse in a series of shocking tweets.

Moments ago, however, the actress retracted her allegations in a fashion that's raised further concerns about the state of her mental health.

Amanda Bynes: Mentally Ill?

"My dad never did those things," Bynes posted on Twitter. "The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he's the one that ordered them to microchip me."

Bynes has spoken about the "microchip" in her brain in the past, claiming that she believes it was implanted to enable the public to read her thoughts.

Amanda spent much of today graphically detailing the manner in which she was sexually abused as a child, and announcing her plans to file for a restraining order against her father.

On Twitter earlier today, Amanda Bynes accused her father of sexually abusing her in the latest display of bizarre and shocking headlines involving the actress.

Amanda went into graphic detail about the nature of the molestation that she allegedly suffered at the hands of her parents, stating that her father routinely "fondled himself" in front of her and her mother knew of the abuse but refused to intervene.

According to the latest tweets from Bynes, she is meeting with a lawyer today in order to secure a restraining order against her father so that she'll never be forced to "hear the sound of his incestually charged voice ever again."

She may have abandoned her plans to take legal action as early as today, however, as TMZ reports that Amanda is attempting to flee New York because she's received word that her parents headed to the city in hopes of confronting her.

Bynes was reportedly kicked out of LaGuardia airport just hours ago after shouting at a ticket agent.

Nick Cannon and Amanda Bynes have been friends since they both got their start on Nickelodeon in the late 90s.

Cannon defended Bynes during her first meltdown in the summer of 2013, and now he's speaking out for the troubled actress once again, urging news outlets and social media users to stop making light of her condition.

"Just because it's someone that is a public figure we feel like it's fun," Cannon said in a recent interview. "But no, this is someone who needs help...and she was getting help. And I'm pretty sure she'll continue to get help again."

Bynes was arrested for DUI on September 29, and her severe mental instability has become increasingly apparent in the nearly two weeks since. 

Just yesterday, Bynes was caught shoplifting twice in New York City. Prior to that, she gave a bizarre, rambling interview in which she stated that she believes she has a microchip in her head which allows others to read her thoughts.

Troubled actress Amanda Bynes was under the influence of Adderall when she was arrested for DUI earlier this week, according to sources close to the case.

Her problems reportedly run much deeper than that, too.

The 28-year-old took the Adderall, whch was prescribed by a doctor, before getting stopped in Van Nuys, Calif., Sunday and failing multiple field sobriety tests.

Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI and posted bail.

Adderall is a stimulant and Amanda was described as "out of it" when she was pulled over, so the fact that it was prescribed won't help her beat a DUI.

Operating a vehicle while impaired is what it is, and it appears this was the case, though it may help her avoid a probation violation on top of this.

Bynes wasn't abusing or obtaining a substance illegally, at least, so it's unlikely a judge will throw the book at her for violating probation as a result.

The bigger problem, however, is her mental state:

Amanda Bynes has been through her fair share of trouble in the past, but the former child star has seemed to be on the mend in recent months.

Or so it appeared until the surprising events of last night, which saw her arrested  on a DUI charge, having been out of the public eye for months.

Amanda Bynes' New Look

After a very public meltdown during which Bynes was admitted to a psychiatric ward, the actress seemed to recover almost miraculously last year.

Reportedly committed to getting her life and career back on track, she has stayed out of the spotlight, returned to school and pulled it together.

A big reason for that has been her sobriety, and remaining committed to that.

Bynes quit smoking pot (which was said to be a trigger for some of her most severe episodes of paranoia), and managed to stay out of the tabloid headlines.

Until last night, that is, after Bynes was pulled over while driving in the San Fernando Valley and promptly arrested by a highway patrol officer.

Amanda Bynes has been hospitalized and held pending a mental health evaluation after allegedly starting a small fire in the driveway of a home in California.

A stranger's home, according to reports.

Ventura County Sheriff's Capt. Don Aguilar says deputies responding to a call last night found her standing next to the flames in the city of Thousand Oaks.

Amanda was born and raised in the L.A.-area community.

The deputies determined that the actress meets criteria for a mental health hold and took her into custody. She can be held for up to 72 hours of observation.

No charges have been filed against her at this time.

Amanda Bynes was reportedly kicked out of a the Ritz-Carlton hotel in NYC for smoking weed in her room and making a girl cry, according to reports.

Bynes, meanwhile, claims she left the hotel "voluntarily." Right.

The 27-year-old terror was reportedly a nightmare from the start, smoking weed every day like she were Snoop Lion despite warnings from hotel staff.

She also used spray chemicals to mask the smell (to no avail).

The really crazy, albeit not surprising, part? She was repeatedly rude to the staff and even told the front desk girl she was "too ugly" to check her in.
