Amanda Bynes will remain under conservatorship for the next two years. I can only assume that’s needed. I’d love a good interview with her.
The 32-year-old actress and fashion student – who was sectioned in 2013 after a very public breakdown – has control of her own finances but her mother Lynn is conservator over her ‘person’ and will continue ‘to make decisions about health and medical issues’, according to The Blast.
Court documents were filed last week to extend the conservatorship until 2020 as Amanda has been doing so well since it was put into place.
The actress saw her life spiral out of control when she was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) in 2012.
A few months later she was charged with two hit and runs, although these were later dismissed following a financial settlement between her and the victims.
Amanda was also arrested at her home for possession of marijuana, attempting to tamper with evidence and reckless endangerment. She was sectioned for mental health issues after she attempted to start a fire outside a family home.
Meanwhile, Amanda’s All That co-star Nick Cannon says the star is doing ‘much better’ these days.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, he said: ‘As of recently, I haven’t [spoken to her], but I heard she’s doing so much better. People, when they’re dealing with personal issues, sometimes you gotta give them their space, and then when they reach out, that’s the time to do it.’
Britney Spears is still in a similar conservatorship; her assets have been supervised by her father Jamie Spears and her lawyer since her public breakdown in 2008.
