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.

Then she should have told them instead of just ignoring the professionals who have obviously been loyal to her for a long time. The reason she didn't is because she is addicted to chemical drugs, and that has obviously triggered latent mental health issues in Amanda, in the same way chemical drug use triggered Britney Spears' latent mental health issues.

Don't those bloodsuckers owe this girl anything???? They take her money for YEARS when it's easy going and when she obviously needs help, they frigging resign? Because she didn't pick up the phone.


You losers. Knock on her door. Catch her at the gym. Reach out. At least make an effort. Do any of these Hollywood phonies have a record of REAL efforts?


I agree, you can't make someone do what they don't want to do but come on, she is exhibiting some serious deep end off the wall way out personality changes which can indicate a health or psychological problem. BE THERE you leeches.


First thing I'd do if representing these kids is make sure they take some serious driving lessons when they turn 16.


I guess it's easier to just dump her and start feeding off the next 12 year old.

Sad thing is. I used to love her when she was a wee one when I was a teen. She was this adorable spastic hillarious kid. I used to watch shows on Nick that had her in em just cuz she amused me so much. Then this.

Really! Fashion! She needs to clean up her act first, getting dropped by the people who back you IS NOT a good sign.

God save America as the truth is it has become a nation that is dripping with corruption and wickedness from the top to the bottom. From politicians to the famous, America is no longer the greatest but the wackiest country in the world. Karma???

If you can't get in touch with someone who doesn't want to talk to you anymore, it means they're..."difficult" and "uncontrollable"..:D
Sounds like some people are mad that they're no longer wanted and boo-hooing about it by scapegoating Amanda.
