Amanda Bynes’s Mother: Marijuana Use to Blame, Amanda “Has No Mental Illness Whatsoever” (VIDEO)
This morning, Amanda Bynes's attorney set the record straight on speculation that she suffers from schizophrenia — she doesn't. Now, Amanda's mom is taking the rumor dispelling one step further, telling Us Weeklyvia the family lawyer that there hasn't been any diagnosis at all.
"Amanda has no mental illness whatsoever. She has never been diagnosed as schizophrenic or bipolar," Lynn Bynes tells Us by way of attorney Tamar Arminak. "She is very sorry for all the hurtful tweets, statements, and actions that occurred while she was under the influence of marijuana."
"Amanda currently is on zero medication. She's devoted to living her life as healthy as possible," Tamar added to the statement. "Her family is closely involved with her day-to-day life, but they try to give her as much autonomy as possible."
We're not sure what Amanda got up to while in treatment at UCLA and at a facility in Malibu over the past few months, but it appears to be working! Amanda is now majoring in fashion at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Orange County, and her Twitter has gone from "ugly" taunts and duckfaces to fashion shows and smiling selfies.
Whatever her erratic behavior was caused by, we're glad she's feeling better — and that the family appears to be doing well.
Do you think Amanda's behavior was caused by marijuana alone? Let us know your thoughts below!
