After some encouraging signs of improvement, Amanda Bynes has returned to the sort of troubling behavior that got her placed on 5150 psychiatric hold last month.
Sources say Bynes has been roaming around LA without a place to stay and refusing to accept help from her parents and others who have offered assistance.
Earlier today, Amanda was spotted sleeping on a sofa in the Beverly Center shopping mall, the latest bizarre twist in a saga that gets sadder by the hour.
The actress took to Twitter in an attempt to assure fans that there's no cause for concern:
"I was not given money for a hotel so i have been staying with friends," she tweeted. "i didn't get enough sleep last night so I fell asleep on a couch."
She went on to rail against her parents and blame them for her current situation:
"What is wrong with them?" Bynes asked, incredulously.
"They don't deserve control over my money. They are miserable in their life and I will fight to have control of my finances taken away from them!"
Bynes will likely get her wish, for what it's worth, as her parents have reportedly decided it's best if they give up the conservatorship they have in place.
In fact, Rick and Lynn Bynes, who legally control Amanda's affairs but clearly can't control her, abruptly and unexpectedly decided to move to Texas.
There, they will be closer to Amanda's sister and hope that someone else can get through to Amanda, who clearly views her parents as a major threat.
This development led to rumors that they feared for their safety after Amanda threatened to kill them. Bynes' lawyer issued a statement today dismissing that rumor.
There's certainly no love lost, however, and her future is very much clouded after she was shockingly released from a psychiatric facility last month.
We hope she gets the help she needs, and soon.
