I know that these past several years have been rough on us all. People have lost their jobs, money’s so tight … but if you’re an agent, a publicist, or a lawyer who thinks she could have some fun in that tough town of Hollywood, then you might just be in luck!
Amanda Bynes’ management team is abandoning ship — her agent, publicist and entertainment lawyer have all dropped the actress as a client in the past couple of weeks … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to Bynes tell us … all 3 people are telling similar stories — Bynes was a dream client for years … but she became extremely difficult in the past 12 months, some say uncontrollable.
One source tells us the management team hasn’t been able to get in touch with Bynes for the past month — no phone calls, no visits, nada.
According to one source, all 3 members of the team made multiple efforts to help Amanda before she went radio silent — but Bynes was not receptive.
Eventually, the team decided to cut bait … acknowledging they can’t help someone that doesn’t want to be helped.
As for Amanda, sources close to the 26-year-old tell us … Bynes feels she no longer needs their services because she’s retired from acting and moving into another line of work — fashion.
We tried to reach out to a rep for Bynes — but, well, she doesn’t have one anymore.
I’ve heard some people theorize that since Amanda Bynes is right around the age when schizophrenia starts to appear in women, all of her erratic behavior can be attributed to that, or some other severe mental illness. But then again, she does smoke weed in the Home Depot parking lot, so it could be substance abuse. Whatever it is, I think we can all agree that Amanda isn’t in the best place right now, and someone with a heart needs to step up and work for her. Goodness knows she can’t work for herself.
