Despite a judge extending her 5150 hold for two weeks so she doesn’t fill another Super Soaker with gasoline and set more elderly women’s driveways on fire, Amanda Bynes‘ parents were not able to get a temporary conservatorship over her (money) on Friday. Probably because they seemed to be very concerned on the amount of money she was spending on weed which was $200,000 in the past two months. TMZ reports:

The parents say Amanda had $4 million in the bank, but is blowing a huge amount of cash — she spent $1.2 mil in a very short amount of time. Amanda withdrew $100k on June 4 and another $100k on July 2 and the parents have no idea where the money went, but they mention they believe she spends “a substantial amount” for marijuana and other illegal substances.
The parents say Amanda doesn’t connect with reality, telling them she “cabbed it” from New York to L.A. The parents believe she’s homeless.

I’m not denying that Amanda Bynes is batshit insane considering every single story about her seems to have the recurring theme of her constant battle with smoke detector spies, but before everyone goes off citing Britney Spears‘ conservatorship as the gold standard of how these things are done, let’s remember some facts: A. Her dad continued to shove her out onstage and lip sync for millions of dollars drugged off her face. B. He got to pay himself with her money for it. And C. All that arranged marriage business. Granted, I don’t know much about Amanda Bynes’ mom and dad, but they are showbiz parents and already got shitty when someone suggested they pay for the old woman’s driveway Amanda tried to nuke despite the majority of their assets coming from her work. And, great, now I’m starting to sound like her. *walks over to smoke detector* “Kaloo kallay klick nacktu baracka? — BARSOMATOOMA! UNGETTI!” *smashes on floor, schedules perm for 3:30*

    Compared to the Lohans, they are probably stellar parents. Then again, compared to the Lohans, so is a rancid fish.

    Good lord…don’t hand this poor disturbed young woman over to the very people who probably helped drive her around the bend in the first place.

    These kind of parents do not push their children into the ent-biz for fame. They do it for the money. So how else should we expect them to act when their gravy is threatened?

  4. They aren’t helping the situation at all.

    What they really mean to say is.. “that bitch is squandering our retirement fund.”

    It’s funny, her Dad was so worried about the lollipops her character was sucking (NOT a euphemism) in Hairspray because he’s a dentist. But she goes completely bat-shit bonkers and Mommy and Daddy didn’t give a damn. Sad.

    • You’re under the impression that if they actually did “give a damn” they’d have ridden to the rescue and gotten her help before this, but it’s not that simple. State commitment laws – that are meant to prevent abuse – also make it almost impossible to involuntarily commit an adult, even though they’re your child. There’s also no way for parents to force their adult child to take medication, go to therapy or otherwise stay with a program that keeps them on an even keel mentally. So even if the family feels threatened by their behavior, or sense they’re a threat to themselves or others, the state still doesn’t see them as sick enough, or violent enough, to warrant committal – not until they finally do something violent or criminal enough to prove it. And if your hands being tied isn’t bad enough, everyone assumes you’re dropping the ball or just don’t care enough when your kid is sleeping under bridges and warning people that the milk at the 7-11 is radioactive, and blames you.

      If you ask me, that’s what’s really sad. I don’t know if her parents were her managers or not, but the fact that her father has his own profession, independent of her career, means they may not have gotten rich off her any more than Katie Holmes’ attorney father was profiting from her acting.

  7. “The parents say Amanda doesn’t connect with reality, telling them she “cabbed it” from New York to L.A”

    Sounds legit, give these stellar parents her money.

  8. “and the parents have no idea where the money went”
    S.A.M. L.U.F.T.I.

    No way she spent that much on weed. That’s like ten 5-pound bricks. That’s closer to street price.

    That much money she’d be getting wholesale/distributor prices.

    She can’t smoke that much by herself and she doesn’t seem to have any friends.



    “Mister Hitler? Time for your Thorazine.”
    “Thank you…thank you.”

    Poor Amanda. Serious mental illness, substance abuse and epic douchebag parents. This isn’t going to end well, is it?

  12. And before we slam Papa Spears conservatorship altogether, let’s check back on some other places Britney appeared “drugged off her face”:

    1) Bald-headed smashing KFed’s car with a golf club
    2) Barefoot in random gas stations
    3) With Sam Lufti

    Papa Spears can have ALL her money as far as I’m concerned.

  13. Cuthbert

    Oh, you’re so full of shit this time. Using her parents refusal to pay for the drive-way as some negative against her? She’s 27 years old, things like that are not her parents responsibility, no matter how they did or didn’t get any money (which is speculation to begin with).

    And don’t forget that Britney Spears conservatorship was so successful in getting her back on track, that Britney herself requests to keep it in place.

  14. Jenn

    After the way she’s talked about them, I wouldn’t pay for her personal Burning Man party on that driveway either, she’s 27 years old. Or maybe they were attempting to get more charges filed on her. Hell for all we know, she thought she was at her parents’ house and wanted to set it on fire.

    If I were a judge, I’d give them a medical conservatorship but severely limit their access to her money. Someone from the state could be appointed to oversee that.

    • Jeez, what a GREAT idea! Have someone from a government entity “oversee” her finances. That’s what I call “a ringing endorsement.” If not the State, how about hiring someone with no axe to grind, like the former treasurer of The City of Detroit?

    Talking into an invisible cell phone is not the way to bring this conservatorship to a speedy closure.
