Amanda Bynes

Serious Mental Issues

9/15/2012 12:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0914_amanda_bynes_pollAmanda Bynes has much bigger problems than smoking pot and driving illegally ... there's evidence she has serious mental issues.

TMZ has spoken with a number of people who have had repeated contact with Bynes over the last few months, and the stories are consistent and disturbing.

Several people from her gym -- Equinox in West Hollywood - tell us, she has been showing increasingly alarming signs of delusional behavior.  One person says Amanda came to the gym Thursday looking dazed and began speaking with herself -- making comments and then answering back.

Another person says when Amanda was on the elliptical, she would stop suddenly and start "laughing hysterically for no reason."  She did this periodically throughout her workout.  This person says he's seen her dozens of times in the last few months, and says it's apparent her condition is "deteriorating."

Several of Amanda's neighbors echo the concern over Amanda's condition.  One tells us he observed her on several occasions having long conversations with inanimate objects.  Another person says people in her condo complex are aware of her condition and her conduct but haven't called her friends or relatives or authorities because they just don't want to get involved, given her profile.

Some of the people in the building have been upset over the last few weeks, because they believe the media is painting Amanda as a garden variety pothead and they say her problems are much deeper.

So her family has no idea she's got mental problems??? They sure do now. No one checks up on her? They sure better start. Maybe someone needs to wake them up to their daughter's behavior and get her some help before she kills some innocent on the roads.

This is obviously a huge exaggeration. Omg! She laughes by herself on the elliptical umm she could just be listening to a funny book? And she smokes weed OMG umm she lives in CA? You could follow any person around in the world and twist everything you see into some sort of downward spiral pattern. She a normal person so she gets drunk sometimes and smokes weed and gets into the occasional fender bender, most people do that. Us average people go to bars and have fun nights with friends too we just don't have a group of TMZ cameramen waiting outside like stalkers ready to try and get that upskirt photo and bad video.

instead of trying to insult her, try to help her.it's sad that the media try to tear a person's character into shreds until they end up dead.

I don't care how crazy she is; i'll take 15 minutes alone with her. She can talk to herself the entire time.

They got involved enough to talk to TMZ, but that doesn't take any real effort.

Maybe shes a crappy driver but I dont think shes delusional.. From the sounds of it, she also seems to be a stoner. Iv gone to the gym baked out of my mind and would randomly start laughing / talking to myself.
