Considering all the crazy things Amanda Bynes has tweeted from her official Twitter account — just ask Drake what we're talking about — you couldn't blame the 27-year-old actress if she wanted to start anew with a Twitter pseudonym.

And In Touch Weekly claims she did just that, touting that the troubled starlet has a "secret" Twitter handle, @PersianLA27, on which she refers to herself as Ashley Barks.

But Amanda — who has been spending her post-rehab time studying at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising — denies having such an account, writing, "FYI, this is my only Twitter account; I have no secret Twitter accounts."

As the site notes, Ashley Barks raves about a dog named Sherbert, discusses her gym activities, and shades her "perceived enemies" — all of which Amanda used to do through @amandabynes, In Touch says. (The current @PersianLA27 feed shows no mention of the word "Sherbert," but commenters claim that the user has been deleting tweets.)

In Touch also cites "social media expert" Susan Jack-Wharton, who says, "If this isn’t Amanda Bynes' private Twitter account, then someone is doing a very good job of impersonating her."

"Ashley" has also tweeted that she isn't Amanda, which could of course be another of Amanda's denials. The user has also exchanged tweets about circumcision with Matt Prokop, boyfriend of Modern Family star Sarah Hyland and a guy with whom the real Amanda got into a Twitter feud in June.

Along with her denial tweet, though, the real Amanda did share a hand-drawn self-portrait, so there's that.

Do you think Ashley is actually Amanda? Or is she just a Twitter user who sounds just like the actress? Sound off below.
