Amanda Bynes

Parents Say She's Paranoid...

Hemorrhaging Money

7/26/2013 10:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The parents of Amanda Bynes believe she's a substance abuser who has become paranoid, delusional and is draining her bank account ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Amanda's parents filed papers in an attempt to win a temporary conservatorship.  In the docs, they say Amanda has become "extremely paranoid about being watched," and she covers smoke alarms with towels and tapes windows shut to prevent cameras from shooting her.

The parents go on -- Amanda has "profound issues with her body image" and is "obsessed with the fact that she (and others) are ugly."

The parents say Amanda had $4 million in the bank, but is blowing a huge amount of cash -- she spent $1.2 mil in a very short amount of time.  Amanda withdrew $100k on June 4 and another $100k on July 2 and the parents have no idea where the money went, but they mention they believe she spends "a substantial amount" for marijuana and other illegal substances.

The parents say Amanda doesn't connect with reality, telling them she "cabbed it" from New York to L.A.  The parents believe she's homeless.

The documents described what TMZ first reported ... that the parents are hanging their hats on the driveway fire incident to show Amanda is a danger to herself and others.

The court denied the petition for a temporary conservatorship Friday morning, because the judge wanted more info.

TMZ broke the story ... doctors suspect Amanda is schizophrenic.

All that money blown on weed? Snoop couldn't even do THAT much. Methinks some hangers on are sucking cash out of Amanda. Time to put a padlock on that bank account!

She has no illness, the media and tmz targeted her for no random reason. They are trying to throw her in the looney bin. Don't listen to the media's and TMZ's lies. It's a major conspiracy.

if she is tearing through the money like they say, she is doing a heck of alot more than just pot. even if she is wasteful with it- no way can you blow that kind of dough.

First, check the bank accounts of the so-called record label she was going to "sign" with. Then check Sam Lufti's accounts, or look under his bed. If it's not there she was probably robbed by her dealer, not the other way around.

4 million at the age of 27 will not last long. My Sister-in-law had 5 million at age 27 and it was gone by the time she turned 35. She had her own table at La Bares and had male strippers staying at her 5 million dollar Tennessee Walking Horse ranch. In the 90's she won Reserve World Grand Champion in the Tennessee Walking Horse world. LOTS of money spent, lots of clothes & photos and stable boys and trips and paying for other people like she was MC Hammer. Guess what? She's now 50 yrs old, FLAT BROKE and living paycheck-to-paycheck in a 40 year old apartment by the airport. Good luck Amanda~ the money WILL run out.

There's no way she could spend even a fraction of that kind of money on pot.

She would have no lungs left.

My guess is rent
