Amanda Bynes hates when anyone posts an old photo of her, so when we saw the new cover of In Touch Weekly, we knew she’d be mad. And yep, she’s mad — about the cover photo and more.
The story is about some wild party at her house, and one of the people quoted — and featured in photos — is Giovanni Arnold, a paparazzo guy who follows her around a lot (see video below) and is apparently thrilled to be part of the In Touch piece. On his GTV! Paparazzi Facebook page he wrote, "I'm on the cover of the latest In Touch magazine this week, partying with Amanda Bynes!"
However, Amanda tweeted a lengthy response to the story, blasting the cover, the photos inside, and the editors she used to like:
"That's not my bed! Those aren't my toes! My toes are pedicured! I just did an exclusive interview with intouch last week, now they bought fake altered photos by that ugly black man in the photo or someone who knows him! They used an old shot of me on the cover with a bad angle of my old nose before I had surgery to reshape my profile and to remove the webbing from my eyes. I have to sue because that's not my apartment, those aren't my clothes! They morphed photos of my face onto someone's body to ruin my life! I have to make a big deal of this and sue because that's not me! I care about my appearance so I have to defend myself! I look like a different person now that I had surgery! Why did they put an old shot of me on the cover? I don't look like that anymore! I only want photos of my gorgeous new nose on the cover of tabloids and real magazines! The photos in this issue are fake and mocked up! I don't care enough to keep talking about it. Just assume that I fucked the boyfriend of the editor of intouch because they fucking hate me!"
Yikes. Giovanni responded in a series of his own tweets:
• “Why did you call me cutie every day if you're saying I'm ugly now? Don't lie! Let me see those dimples, girl! @AmandaBynes”
• "And you know that's your real bed cuz that's the same bed we were laying up in together when I had my hands on your ass baby! @AmandaBynes"
• “I'm nice enough to go chill with @AmandaBynes and now she goes spreading lies about me! #wild”
• “@AmandaBynes Don't tell lies about me baby girl!!!”
• “@AmandaBynes Are you mad at me, too? I know you got that jungle fever baby!”
You can’t talk to a magazine behind a girl’s back and still expect to be her “friend” afterward, although it doesn't sound like they were besties before this.
For the record, In Touch also released its own statement (via RadarOnline): “The photos of Amanda Bynes inside this week’s issue of In Touch speak for themselves. We at In Touch have done our due diligence and research on the photos and the article that accompanies them. In Touch has not altered or photoshopped these photos in any way. Additionally, the photographer has assured In Touch that these photos of Amanda were not altered or photoshopped in any way prior to the magazine obtaining them and they are, in fact, of Amanda Bynes taken at Amanda’s apartment in New York City. All of Amanda’s claims pertaining to the photos in this week’s In Touch are false.”
