Amanda Bynes
' management team is abandoning ship -- her agent, publicist and entertainment lawyer have all dropped the actress as a client in the past couple of weeks ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources connected to Bynes tell us ... all 3 people are telling similar stories -- Bynes was a dream client for years ... but she became extremely difficult in the past 12 months, some say uncontrollable. 

One source tells us the management team hasn't been able to get in touch with Bynes for the past month -- no phone calls, no visits, nada.

According to one source, all 3 members of the team made multiple efforts to help Amanda before she went radio silent -- but Bynes was not receptive.

Eventually, the team decided to cut bait ... acknowledging they can't help someone that doesn't want to be helped.

As for Amanda, sources close to the 26-year-old tell us ... Bynes feels she no longer needs their services because she’s retired from acting and moving into another line of work -- fashion.

We tried to reach out to a rep for Bynes -- but, well, she doesn't have one anymore.

What'd she have all those people on her payroll for, since she "retired" from acting?
But it's NOT a good sign that they're runnin', and sayin' she's "uncontrollable."
That jibes with what we've been seeing here.

Moving on to fashion. Hope she likes bright orange, with Property Of County Jail written on the back.

She and her family are not going to be able to deny that she has issues much longer. It is going to be interesting to see how all this ends. I just hope she gets the help she needs.

She's a hot mess. If they want to keep any Hollywood credibility they will run far away before she does more harm.

Ha ha ha, she no longer needs their services because she's moved on???? Yeah, right - like as if it was her choice. They dumped her. As for fashion, she can't be thinking she'll go on HSN. They don't want someone who won't show up.
.
Amanda, I hear they're hiring at McD's. Wishing you luck on your new career.

Someone needs to help this girl. Her agent, publicist and the like have all left her when she needs help yet they were all there with their hands out when she was making money! Sad!


It's awful to see such a sweet person fall apart like this. I hope she gets help and gets well fast.


Unlike Amanda there is Lohan who is a major slut druggie criminal who deserves everything she gets!

She is at the upper end of when schizophrenia tends to rear it's ugly head, and she is kind of acting like that - she's not disheveled, but her behavior is bizzare, there's reports of her talking to herself, and she shows NO judgement really. BUT......some people also need and HAVE to work to keep sane and healthy. She may be one. She worked since she was little and while she has, like we men always do, complain about and/or quit work, but we feel worse when we have nothing to do. With men, I tell people to go into any nursing home. They will see 10:1 females over males. Men are MEANT to work and keep busy. As soon as that purpose is gone for men, they tend to give up and die....thus they don't make it to the nursing home

WHY is TMZ bent on destroying this woman? TMZ runs the worst pictures of her, follows her every move...We get it, she's a train wreck. Now she has no representation and Harvey could not be happier...what gives?

Maybe her being 'uncontrollabe' is just her way of breaking away from her Monarch Programming. Google it, it is pretty scaryy!
