Amanda Bynes

Barricades Self For 2 Hours

In Dressing Room

9/18/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0917_amanda_bynes_kent_store_sunset_plaza_west_hollywood_driving_Article_3Amanda Bynes went shopping today in West Hollywood ... and locked herself in a dressing room for nearly 2 hours.

Amanda was shopping at Kin (above) -- a hip boutique.  Amanda took some clothes inside the fitting room and stayed for 1 hr. 45 min.

The clerks heard a banging sound coming from inside the dressing room every 10 minutes or so.  One clerk made a distress call to another employee, saying he was concerned about Bynes being hold up for so long.  The employee drove to the store to help, to no avail.  Amanda wouldn't come out, telling them, "I need more time."

0917_amanda_bynes_kent_store_sunset_plaza_west_hollywood_driving_Article_storeAmanda finally came out at around 5:30 PM, went to the register and bought a pair of stilettos, a pair of sunglasses and a few other things. 

Now get this ... as Amanda walked out she noticed she had tried on a bathing suit top that was underneath her dress and told the clerk she forgot it was on.  Amanda then paid for the suit.

Amanda saw a few photogs before leaving and then asked the clerk to call her a cab.  It's unclear how she arrived at the store.

Major news outlets are starting to report that TMZ is basically stalking this girl at this point. Yes she has issues but so does everyone else. People are starting to side with her and turn on TMZ. Rather sickening at this point.

maybe she was praying in the dressing room for rosh hashana because she skipped synagogue services and decided to pray in a dressing room instead. cant a jewish girl do some clothing store praying on the high holidays.

She needs her mama n papa, and sista n brotha to bring her back to reality. She is heading to where Brit was when she hooked up with Sam. As I said from the beginning, this is a clear cut cry for help. She needs to be able to talk to someone openly and honestly about what is going on without feeling she will be betrayed and judged... just my guess. GBH! And TG she is off the road. We all have issues just glad she isn't our car wreck issue. Bynes, sit still. You can figure it out. And when you do you will be stronger bcuz U figured it out. Go girl...straight to a counselor. lol Seriously though, you are in control... nix the drama. Get it together at all cost. IT DOES GET BETTER

Looking like Harvey and TMZ is useing Bynes as the new LA version of Lohan.

Don't you just love how Harvey and TMZ still use "breaking news" "Exclusive" when everyone else had the story before they did.

C'mon a distress call to another employee? Jeez Harve, that's even lame for you.

This is like watching a slow motion car wreck. It's not going to be long before this nut case is sitting in a jail cell. But like Brittany, she'll get off with little to no punishment.

I sincerely wish that this young woman get the help that she needs before it's too late. I do find it interesting how some entertainers are judged. For those that we like we support, the ones we dislike we make negative comments about them, calling them names, when we should be sympathetic to them all. They all may not have made the best choices in life; but they are all human and have family and friends who love them. Before you make your comments, how would you feel if a family member or someone you loved were in trouble.

I'm still trying to figure how you can 'barricade' yourself in a dressing room. I go into a dressing room I lock the door just like anyone else it's not a 'barricade'. Always with the over exaggeration.

Where is her family? This girl needs help before she goes off the deep end...sounds like she is wading that way. Sadly, this wont end as well as Lilo.

TMZ, time to stop stalking and get this girl some help. You don't jump on the banana cart overnight. Something's very wrong in this poor girls life.

This train-wreck has been brewing slowly for a long long time.....I'm appalled at how many fender benders and other shena****ns she's gotten into the past few months. Hopefully she can get help before she looks 10+ years her true age.
