Amanda Bynes

Serious Mental Issues

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

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 whose fault is it, Hollywood or the drugs?
Another poster implied she was porking her former boss. Did he dump her and she flipped out? She's been acting weird for a while.
BTW--I TOTES get how her neighbors want no friggin' part of this! Bet they hope she moves OUT.
(I think every BIT of the press on this will force some sort of a resolution sooner rather than later. Keep it up, TMZ!!!)

Sad sad    

'"...several occasions having long conversations with inanimate objects" I see nothing wrong with that. Many guys do this on Sundays watching football screaming at the t.v. like anyone can hear them. Just saying.
I just LOL by myself. Lock me away. Honestly, I just think shes doing some serious drugs. People on here are going to start being her doctor and say she's bipolar and all sorts of things now. But she needs to stay off the dam road she's going to kill someone or herself. That pisses me off.

Well hopefully her family is going to take control of her life and put her in a facility (and at least OFF THE ROAD). Obviously she has a lot of issues and needs help. Hope she gets better.

Mental problems? I'm not buying this. Her family, friends, neighbors, people at gym are doing nothing? get real TMZ. This bs comes from your famous sources and we all know what crap they've fed you the past few months. This is TMZ prolonging Amanda Bynes storys for their own gain. This girl smokes weed and is a reckless driver, something should be done about that,

TMZ also said Amanda Bynes doesn't have a license, thats bs as well, if she didn't have a license she would have been arrested. TMZ think if they tell us that enough times we will believe it, once again their sources are bs.

To the contrary, I don't think anyone is portraying her as or sees her as a "garden variety pothead". I think that's just it, everyone knows there's gotta be bigger issues.

This is sad but these people would rather talk to TMZ than anonymously contact authorities? You know you dont have to identify yourself to report a crime. Even if they don't feel comfortable, does she have no contact with friends or family, they're closer to her than these sources, why wouldn't they do something?

Well I guess it's good attention being drawn to her but it doesn't seem like anyone's willing to do anything, so she may continue to circle the drain unfortunately.
