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*
