Amanda Bynes

Parents Say She's Paranoid...

Hemorrhaging Money

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.

First of all the money is Amanda's, she worked to earn and she can do what she wants to with it. Second her parents do not have access to Amanda's finances, they would not know how much she had are how much she has with drawn. All hey are concerned about is getting access to her money. They have made this obvious.

Stop supporting her behavior. She and Justin Beiber need to connect. Their parents are terrible. I would be camped out in their front yard. I would do anything to protect my kids. So, when do we hear about an overdose or alcohol abuse....OH we didn't know

What does it take for a judge to see that this girl is out of touch with reality? To deny a conservatorship when this young woman is in such deep trouble shows that our court system doesn't use anything close to common sense. She is going to be dead soon if someone doesn't get control of her and her assets, get her the help she desperately needs and get rid of the hangers on that are using her for her money and drugs. Wake Up Judge and HELP THIS GIRL.

Its amazing how cynical everyone is. I think she really is sick and probably self medicating with drugs. With her bizarre behavior it is ridiculous that the judge did not grant her parents request. We do not handle mental illness well in this country.

I hope her parents do not get it. Anyone who puts their child in show business at such a young age then is NOT there for her most of her life is not a loving parent. They only want to be there when its rock bottom and they know they get money.

I don't understand why a judge would need more info to grant temp conservatorship, just a regular person with no training knows something is desperately wrong with her.

Hey, it's her money.
If she's suffering from schizophrenia, she needs a confirmed medical diagnosis.
Then she can be prescribed medication to help control it. The pot is only making her condition worse.

It depends on much you have to spend. If you're walking around with $100,000 in your pocket like Amanda Bynes is, it could easily cost her $100,000.
