Amanda Bynes


By Agent, Publicist, Lawyer

9/21/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

The drunk and drug user won't need these people if she is in jail for many years which she deserve. I am outrage that she refused to get the help that she badly need for many years.

AB lost her brain trust. But now her benefactor is probably TMZ who I'll bet pays her to act the train wreck to fill up site space. Otherwise, she'd have a good case against them for paparazzi stalking.

I know this sounds crazy but may she has Schitzophrenia. Obviously I am no psychologist but the onset in women is typical mid twenties. If this started about a year ago it could make sense.

What empathy & suport we have here. She's a sensitive talented actress with difficult personal problems - nice to have so may judgemental people.
She's in an insane business where the next acting job is never guarenteed.The no-ethics, no privacy off-the-clock stalkerazzi harass her more than ever before. Afraid of her ? How about a brave friend or family member putting their foot down to help ?
Especially when her parents can't help her because 'she's an adult on her own'. What familial hypocracy.
Maybe down the road she can eventually have assistance in her fashion ideas - & think about doing indie movies, which are very popular now . . .
