Amanda Bynes

Parents to Judge:

She's Gonna Hurt Herself Bad, UNLESS ...

7/26/2013 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Amanda Bynes' parents will tell a judge today ... the actress is in serious danger and could cause physical harm to herself ... and that's why they want to take control over her life, TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the family tell us ... Amanda's parents will be in court this morning with their attorney, Tamar Arminak ....asking the judge to create a temporary conservatorship for their 27-year-old daughter.

Here's what her parents must prove: 

1) Amanda does not have the ability to provide for her own physical health --  along with food, clothing and shelter

We're told her parents will use the gasoline fire in Thousand Oaks, which singed her clothes and caused damage to a home, as the centerpiece of their argument that she's in imminent danger of physically harming herself.

2) Amanda cannot make sound financial judgements

Amanda's parents will argue her mental illness makes her unfit to protect her life savings.

3) They can provide a stable home for their daughter

We're told Amanda's parents will tell the judge ... they're prepared for Amanda to move into their Thousand Oaks home and they will provide all necessary care.

FYI -- Amanda owns two properties, but they're both leased out.  She's lived in several hotels and apartment buildings ... but she's been thrown out of almost every one due to her erratic behavior. 

4) There are no realistic alternatives to a conservatorship

We're told Amanda's parents will argue she's suffering from schizophrenia but will not seek treatment because she doesn't believe she has an illness -- even though she acknowledges there's a "good Amanda" and a "bad Amanda."  They believe the only way to keep her safe is to provide round-the-clock care.

If the judge grants the temporary conservatorship, we're told the parents will immediately petition the court to make the conservatorship PERMANENT ... ala Britney Spears.   The judge would then set a date for a full-blown hearing and appoint a lawyer to rep Amanda.

Today's hearing is set for 8:30 AM PT -- so stay tuned.

Well good luck to the parents - but I can tell you that the best thing you can do is let Amanda end up in the gutter first. When she's ready to wake the F up then SHE will come around and ring your doorbell.

Do they all have eye webbing? They seem like good folks stuck in the middle of a media feeding frenzy and their daughter..keep her away from lufti and those wanna be rappers..spend a few years away from tv..tgen let her rebuild regroup and come back in a different light..or find piece of mind and dont come back at all.

Since her psych hold has been extended to 2 weeks, the judge can use whatever additional info they gather during that time to grant the conservatorship.
Amanda needs it. Otherwise, she WILL wind up hurting herself and/or others very soon. She's lost control due to her mental illness.

I think it would be interesting to have that kind of thing happen in ones head. I don't want it, but it would have to be strange to have two people living inside.

I'd LOVE to know who's running their mouth about Amanda and her progress in the hospital, isn't there a little thing called HIPPA? That's no ones' business but Amanda's and her family.

schizophrenia is actually not a scientific explanation but a myth created by our society to control those people that are different to the norm. Therefore, when they have this label, their behaviour becomes exaggerated to fit the stereotypical views of schizophrenia. This then goes in a circle, as the people around start to treat the person differently because they have been labelled, causing the person to live up to their label even more.

On several of these Amanda discussion boards, if you dare to suggest her parents svck or were too lame, impotent for ages in getting love and meaningful help to her, you
immediately get flack + black checks.
Isn't it possible these 2 broadly smiling people are no good for her and she has good reason to hate them + be suspicious of them?
Funny TMZ only has 1 stock pix of them.
Where have they been hiding since 10, 15 years ago when their daughter covered household appliances for fear of them?
Obviously then they knew she was really sick in the head.
