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.

I hate when websites make stories and use "sources" that are FOS. I mean big deal she took off her tshirt and was wearing a sport bra underneath. She reapplied her makeup at a spin class and got kicked out by the instructor. Are these the things that make a person labeled "crazy"?

She's so going to end up doing porno. Not because she has to no because she'll want too.

Odds are these same "friends" happily walked her towards this cliff. They should be looking in the mirror and asking themselves what they did to contribute to the problems instead of blaming the parents for not cleaning up when the situation became too sticky for them.

The only person who can help her is herself. She has to be the one to decide to get better. The family can only do so much until she is ready.

I agree, alot of people on here make sport of making fun of people. In her case though I truly believe that she needs help. I am in no way excusing what she did and she should answer in a court of law, but she really does need help, and for her whole staff to just bail on her is b.s. I hope that their careers suffer as aa result.

I am a parent of an adult son who needed help- a parent can't do anything more than a stranger can do except watch and cry until that child decides to really really want to change. Even if they get a court order all that does is control specific things - not the will to change. It is only up to the individual to want to change and then the parents can help with much needed support - look at Britney Spears. Her divorced parents came together to help her when she hit bottom and finally, Britney did change to a better person - of course, she had a good reason to change - her sons. pretty sure, Amanda feels worthless and in her mind unloved.

She really needs help!!! I am actually very concerned about her, I will that her parents are not going the extra mile to get her the help she needs and are just backing off because she says she is doing fine. Her parents need to work harder on getting her help because this isn't going well at all even if it means booking a flight to NYC

Just wait once she starts getting rid of her possessions (if not now) suicide watch.
