Amanda Bynes needs help badly, as evidenced by two recent audio recordings in which she unloads on her parents, especially her estranged father Rick.
The two audio clips were recorded a week ago by one of the trouble actress' West Hollywood roommates as they drove somewhere in a car together.
We've posted reports about Amanda talking to inanimate objects or herself over the past few months, but this is our first direct insight into her mind.
It's not a pretty place, which goes without saying.
Bynes' ramblings show just how far she has gone off the rails, and family and friends actually wanted TMZ to post these to prove she needs help.
Amanda casually but seriously talks of murdering her dad, slitting her mom's wrists, burning her house down and leaving her father's body in a ditch.
Then she attacks a friend in the second rant, telling him, "You're so gay it hurts my feelings" at the end of more than a minute of nonsensical ramblings.
Will this be a wake-up call for professionals to intervene?
Even if it is, do they have legal standing to do so, given that Amanda was let go once before, not only after being placed in a mental facility due to similar concerns?
It's all far from certain, and extremely sad at this point.
Amanda Bynes was just released from psychiatric care last month in a stunning decision 17 days after she was placed under a 5150 hold in Pasadena, Calif.
We can all agree it's clear that was a huge mistake.
It should never have happened, and her actions in recent weeks prove it. We've gone beyond Twitter rants about Caleb Pusey and veered into dangerous territory.
The only question is how badly it will end.
