Amanda Bynes reverting back to bizarre behavior, removing arm tattoo


“Once her parents drop her off, the second they’re out of view, she goes running out of the gym and is looking over her shoulder,” the witness said. “I hope she’s not up to any hanky panky.”

Amanda Bynes is shedding another link to her troubled past. The “Hairspray” actress was seen out in her hometown of Thousand Oaks, Calif., Thursday with a dramatically faded version of her angel wings tattoo.

The previously dark ink on her right arm looked barely visible in the bright sunshine while the surrounding skin looked pink and irritated, presumably from a laser removal process, one neighborhood witness told the Daily News.

It’s yet another sign that the former Nickelodeon star is making changes after she started a fire in a stranger’s driveway last summer and was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold that led to a formal diagnosis of schizophrenia, sources previously told The News.








Bynes, 27, was released from a mental health rehab facility in December and is starting classes at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Orange County to get her life back on track, the sources said.

Her new recovery routine includes plenty of exercise, including back-to-back marathon workout sessions at the 24 Hour Fitness near her parents’ house in Thousand Oaks.

According to the neighborhood witness, Bynes spent about three hours at the gym last Thursday after her dad dropped her off following a recent trip to a fitness resort in Utah.

The star returned for another session Friday, only that time her mom helped with drop-off and pick-up duties, the witness said.

Lynn Bynes is now the conservator of her famous daughter’s mental health conservatorship, meaning she calls the shots when it comes to the star’s treatment.

The former stage mom has good reason to watch the “Easy A” actress like a hawk, the neighborhood witness said.

On both Thursday and Friday of last week, Amanda darted out of her gym just minutes after she was dropped off and made a solo beeline for the Valero gas station down the street, the witness said.


The former child star spent a few minutes in the convenience store on both occasions and then raced back to the gym unaccompanied, the witness said.

“Once her parents drop her off, the second they’re out of view, she goes running out of the gym and is looking over her shoulder,” the witness said. “I hope she’s not up to any hanky panky.”

Attempts to reach a rep for Amanda were not immediately successful Monday.

During the makeshift gasoline fire last July, Amanda stripped off her burning pants and appeared gravely disoriented, a different witness previously told The News.

It took doctors months to work out her therapeutic drug cocktail, and Amanda’s worried parents rushed to court for a probate conservatorship.

In their court filing, the parents said they were “deeply concerned” about her paranoid behavior, “profound” body issues, her bong-tossing bust in Manhattan last May and evidence she’d blown through $1.2 million of her $4 million life savings in a “short amount of time.”

Her mom later withdrew the probate petition because the separate mental health conservatorship first sought by doctors is more powerful when it comes to forcing Amanda to stay in treatment.
