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.

What is REALLY frightening about this claim of the money going missing, is that Sam Lufti was just reported as having been around her, and now she has gone through $200,000 in two months? Check HIS bank account! He preys on these mentally messed up celebs.

The Girl needs help now, and I hope her parents are able to secure a conservator ship in order to get her that help. Hopefully once on meds things will calm down and she may get back to reality. Of course after she can stop meds, but maybe she will understand the need for the meds.

Another victim of mind control. MK Ultra is alive and well. Sad, really sad. And in the Land of the Free. Mind control is NOT freedom. Ask Britney.
On a side note, it's HER MONEY it's NO ONES business what she does or does not spend her money on.

Sam Lufti? Omg....I wouldn't doubt it. Britney went off the same nut job deep end when she shaved her head. She was also paranoid dead bolting herself in a room to get high. Wouldn't doubt if he had a hand in this, considering he's got a restraining order preventing him from getting near Britney. I have a feeling Britney is gonna hit bottom again....

if she took out 100 k then maybe she did cab it from new york to LA?, though if she had that much money she didnt 'need' to leave new york! also parents think she's taking other illegal substances but her tests were clear were they not!? i wonder what they think she is taking?

She should have stayed in Bubblewood. She was like a zoo animal returned to the wild and promptly eaten by lesser creatures.

I can't believe the court denied the petition. Are these judges living under rocks? This is the only thing that saved Britney and it's the only thing that will save Amanda. Unless of course they want another Lindsay , a nearly 30 something full time drinker and smoker who can't hold down a job and despite constantly breaking the law has yet to be punished by these same courts who don't think Amanda has an issue!

I have to say, I'm surprised at all the conspiracy theories here that the media planned this all out and targeted her. SHE is RESPONSIBLE for her own problems. If she's mentally ill, fair enough. She needs to get help before she kills someone. If this is a publicity stunt on her behalf, then she needs to take what's coming to her. But stop blaming everyone else.

Amanda thinks shes more rich than she is that is probably why shes spending like crazy. She done an interview with In Touch magazine a few months ago and she was saying how shes rich as the Olsen twins when shes nowhere near has the kind of money they do. She needs to be stopped otherwise she will blow every penny that shes worked for and she has no income as far as we know so she wont be making any back for now. I doubt shes spent most of the money on weed unless she was buying for a big pack of people. Remember she has been spending loads of money in luxury hotels and apartments, designer clothes and bags and apparently she spent over 10k on het hair extensions. I doubt she has been spending It on other people as shes always on her own and it seems to me she trusts no one or lets anyone around her. Also I don't believe she doing other drugs besides weed, if she was most likely it would of shown up when she did that drugs test. I really do hope the parents or anyone that truly cares about her gets control of her life and money. This poor woman is so out of touch with reality and shes very dangerous to herself and other people because of that. SHe needs to be watched 24/7 TBH. Hope she gets out of this situation and gets her life back on track
