My dad never did any of those things The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he's the one that ordered them to microchip me— amanda bynes (@amandabynes) October 10, 2014
After Amanda Bynes spent Friday morning tweeting detailed sexual assault accusations of her father on Twitter, the troubled actress has now seemingly recanted those statements with a tweet.
"My dad never did any of those things," she tweeted this afternoon. "The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he's the one that ordered them to microchip me."
After Bynes sent a barrage of earlier tweets accusing her father of verbal, physical and sexual abuse during her childhood — and saying she would be seeking a restraining order against him — her mother Lynn Bynes' attorney, Tamar Arminak, provided a statement to E! News on her behalf, denying any of the claims.
"I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years," she says. "Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! These allegations stem from Amanda's mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband's character could be slandered in such a way."
The star had been embroiled with high-profile legal troubles last year, but appeared to be on a path to recovery as she attended rehab, moved in with her parents and was studying fashion design in college. But after a second DUI arrest in late September in Los Angeles, Bynes has seemed to have resumed her erratic behavior.
Reports have been swirling this week over Bynes' alleged behavior in New York, stumbling around and shoplifting, according to TMZ.
