Amanda Bynes’ Parents Denied Temporary Conservatorship Over Their Troubled Daughter... At Least For Now
The parents of Amanda Bynes believe she's a substance abuser who has become paranoid, delusional and is draining her bank account ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
Amanda's parents filed papers in an attempt to win a temporary conservatorship. In the docs, they say Amanda has become "extremely paranoid about being watched," and she covers smoke alarms with towels and tapes windows shut to prevent cameras from shooting her. The parents go on -- Amanda has "profound issues with her body image" and is "obsessed with the fact that she (and others) are ugly."
The parents say Amanda had $4 million in the bank, but is blowing a huge amount of cash -- she spent $1.2 mil in a very short amount of time. Amanda withdrew $100k on June 4 and another $100k on July 2 and the parents have no idea where the money went, but they mention they believe she spends "a substantial amount" for marijuana and other illegal substances.
The parents say Amanda doesn't connect with reality, telling them she "cabbed it" from New York to L.A. The parents believe she's homeless. The documents described what TMZ first reported ... that the parents are hanging their hats on the driveway fire incident to show Amanda is a danger to herself and others. The court denied the petition for a temporary conservatorship Friday morning, because the judge wanted more info. TMZ broke the story ... doctors suspect Amanda is schizophrenic.
Amanda Bynes will not go down without a fight ... because her lawyer just filed legal docs asking for an emergency hearing to let her loose from the psych ward ... TMZ has learned.
Amanda's lawyer just filed a motion asking the judge to release her from the 2-week forced hospitalization a judge approved Thursday.
There will be a hearing before a judge at the psych ward today at 2PM PT, challenging yesterday's 2-week extension, and Amanda will be present.
Meanwhile Amanda's parents showed up in court this morning in their attempt to win a temporary conservatorship, but they got shut down -- at least temporarily.
The judge said there was no need to rush things because Amanda is already being held for 2 weeks.
The judge wants certain things to happen before he rules on a conservatorship:
-- He wants a one-on-one with Amanda.
-- He wants the lawyer he appointed to rep Amanda to interview her and then come up with a recommendation.
-- He wants to hear from Amanda's doctors.
-- He wants to see the police file on "the incident" -- sources have told us the incident in question is the driveway fire.
A hearing for the conservatorship was set for August 9.
Amanda Bynes told one of her only friends, Ana Rivera, that she was “roofied” during a blind date with the drug GHB and RadarOnline.com has all the details and text messages about the incident from Amanda herself.
According to Ana — who claims she met Amanda last November on the street in New York City — the troubled actress sent her a text message in February detailing a date with a guy who she thought she was doing cocaine with, but now believes it was the date-rape drug, GHB.
“She sent me a text to tell me that she got ‘roofied’ one night, when she was on a date with a guy and ended up in hospital,” Ana said.
“She thought he was giving her coke, but when she sniffed it, it made her feel like she was dying, and ended up in hospital. I was like you can’t see that guy again.
See Amanda’s text message conversation with Ana below:
“That was one of the last times I talked to her,” Ana said.
“I suddenly couldn’t get hold of her and then read she’d changed her phone and email and wasn’t talking to anyone. It was like she was dropping everyone at once.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported , Ana is not surprised by Amanda’s bizarre behavior or her 5150 psych hold, and thinks the former Nickelodeon star will die if not placed in conservatorship of her parents.
“She’s good at being lucid when she’s crazy. If [professionals] let her out, she will pull the wool over her eyes. If she is not pinned down to the bed, she will run away,” Ana said.
“She is worse than Lindsay [Lohan] or Britney [Spears] , no one can reach her. She’s going to have to be there for months and she could even be institutionalized for the rest of her life.”
Ana also claimed Amanda killed her last dog (not the one involved in the driveway fire with her) by letting it jump off a cliff in the Hollywood Hills.
“I was really concerned when she got that dog for its safety, as the last Pomeranian she had in Los Angeles that she left just wander away and it fell off the cliffs in Hollywood Hills. She told me about it and started crying when talking about it,” Ana said.
“I’m glad the dog is safe and with her parents. She cant even take care of herself let alone a dog, although without that dog I dread to think what would have happened to her. Over the last year, they’ve been her only friends.”
