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.

I blame the Judge if anything happens to her outside that hospital. If she hurts herself or anyone else, The Parents tried..... Your Honer... Your Not into Reality.

There seems to emerging evidence of a link between pot use at a young age and schizophrenia. Since she seems to be using at the Cheech and Chong level I wonder if there is a connection here.

BS... the only person that could probably blow through that kind of money on drugs is Charlie Sheen and/or that other dude that looks like a lady... whatchamacallits face... Steve Tyler. She either paid her peeps ahead of time for this shena****n or invested that money under a long distant relatives name so it wouldn't look suspicious.

stfu please     

Find it hard to believe she blew that ALL of that money on drugs. The b!tch is definitely crazy but I don't see her as a full blown addict

Does she really have that 4 mil in the back like regular people have a few hundred? Nah. This story is cursory at best.

The pieces of the puzzle are finally starting to fall into place. How very, very sad. Good job, TMZ!! Inside Edition, which I watch every day, is doing nothing to keep the public informed about Amanda. Thanx!

Some of the money likely went towards Amanda's cosmetic surgeries and Attorney.
