Amanda Bynes

I DO NOT NEED

A CONSERVATORSHIP

9/18/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes
insists ... she's not having a Britney Spears-type meltdown -- telling friends she does NOT need a conservatorship because she's perfectly capable of making her own life choices.

Amanda is adamant ... she has no substance abuse problems and she dismisses the pending criminal hit-and-run charges and the DUI cases -- claiming the charges are all bogus.

Amanda says her family has NEVER brought up even the possibility of a conservatorship. This is consistent with a contact TMZ had with a rep for Amanda's family several months back ... the rep insisted the family felt Amanda had NO mental problems. 

We do know several friends and relatives of Amanda's family have tried convincing them Amanda needs professional help, but as of early summer the pleas fell on deaf ears.

As we first reported -- Amanda's neighbors and fellow gymgoers have become increasingly alarmed  ... claiming Amanda has shown worrisome signs of mental distress, including speaking to inanimate objects.

As for reports Amanda's entering rehab in the next couple days – the actress says no way ... there's no reason to check into a treatment facility.

This whole situation has become very disturbing. She was the cutest kid. Now she has several driving charges against her. I fear that she is going to be going to court like Lindsay. What a shame.

Amanda dismissed the DUI and 2 hit and run charges saying they are bogus? or is this you TMZ and your bogus sources?


Amanda should have been arrested for driving multiple times on a suspended license. I doubt the LAPD would bring charges if they didn't have enough evidence but I hope she's ok mentally.

She's wild and jobless at the moment...what-else can she do? When she was working everything in her life seemed OK or at least she was not behaving like this...now everything seem to have changed after 2 or a year without work.

Amanda, so taking a little trip down denial, are we? It's easier trying to deny substance abuse or mental illness rather than getting help, isn't it?
.

Amanda's family apparently shouldn't wait for her to seek help voluntarily. Time for a family member to step up & file for conservatorship so she may be evaluated to determine what, if any, is her problem and get help.
