Amanda Bynes

Friends Are FURIOUS

Her Family Isn't Helping Her

9/22/2012 11:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0922-amanda-bynes-tmzSources close to Amanda Bynes tell TMZ her friends are fuming mad with her family ... wondering why they aren't doing more to help the troubled actress before something REALLY bad happens to her.

According to our sources, Amanda's friends do not understand why her family is not being more aggressive when it comes to her wellbeing. We're told her friends are perplexed why they are just standing by and watching Amanda self-destruct.

Our sources say her friends (who feel they have done all they can) want her family to literally break down her door and drag her to get to help.

But that's a problem ... because we're told Amanda has slowly cut off communication from her entire family -- dad, mom, sister and brother -- to the point where she has ceased all communication entirely. 

As TMZ first reported, Amanda's family recently moved from Texas to California to be closer to her. According to our sources, they are having the same level of success helping her now as they did before.

Her parents could still get a conservatorship even though she cut off communication!

She appears to have mental issues just like Britney. She is not a bad person, she just needs help.

Amanda doesn't want help.. she won't want help till she's sitting a jail cell after she killed someone.. she doesn't care .. she is refusing help because she thinks she is doing nothing wrong.. well she needs to grow up and start acting like a 26 year old woman .. she's not dear ashley anymore.. she is grown and she will make her own choices that she will pay greatly for.. she is selfish to drive when impaired... please amanda grow up .. if not mark my words you will be sorry if you kill or hurt someone.. think of others...

Hey, maybe her family thinks they've done all they can too, at least for awhile. We don't know what they've done for her, or put up with from her. Her friends can b*tch all they want, if she really has any friends. She's not a kid and it's her life. She's going to have to take the lead in her future. If she doesn't, she'll have to deal with the fallout, like the rest of us. If her family wants a life of their own, they'll know when to quit. let her know they're around, and that's it. Otherwise, they'll be like Sheen's family, still playing his games when he's pushing 50.

Remember when Lisa Marie commented that with MJ that if people didn't agree with what he wanted they were dismissed from his life, when will people stop fearing about the dollar to gain, but rather the life that needs to be saved. Its not about stop caring for the celebrities in trouble, it's about acknowledging they are but real people in this world in trouble and by having people show them the way out of trouble and into a more healthy lifestyle, you can also help all the millions who aren't celebrities but follow in their path and lifestyles, by saving one life, you can save thousands... All by example. Remember it is the charity of heart that prevails...
