Amanda Bynes' Mom

Drops Bid for

Exclusive Details

Amanda Bynes
' mom is dropping her bid to get a permanent conservatorship, but not because she's turning her back on her very ill daughter ... it's because she already has the ammo she needs to protect her.

Amanda's mom was slated to go to court Monday to make the temporary conservatorship permanent.  But here's the deal.  Amanda is currently on an LPS hold -- translation, doctors have a tighter rein on Amanda than her mother would have with a conservatorship.

And there's a twist.  Doctors have given Amanda's mom the power to make medical and financial decisions for her daughter under the LPS hold.

The mom has already exercised her power by getting Amanda admitted long term to UCLA Medical Center.

Bottom line.  There's no need for a conservatorship anymore, so she's withdrawn her petition.

And finally, and sadly, we're told there has been no real improvement in Amanda's condition.

Her mom should have no say in anything that involves Amanda's finances are Medical decisions. All she wants is the money, she could care less about her daughter.The Judge should appoint a neutral party to make these important decisions.

Theres no cure for mental illness, schizophrenia is like Alzheimer's in that it only gets worse.

She is not improving because she is normal, just weird. They want her not to be her any more. She ended up being a freaky weird person that her goody goody associates can't stand. They probably don't want to hear what her concerns are, they just want her to change.

She is very intelligent and sometimes people like that are just eccentric and hard for others to understand. How is she supposed to say that she is glad to be in a hospital or to have her mother control her money? She is upset about something, and they are not getting to the bottom of it.

I think she will end up holding on to the bitter end and they will destroy her mind before they let her out. Most people see the game for what it is and play along at some point, but I don't think she will.

Poor girl. This is such a sad thing what has happened to her and shows that mental illness can happen to anyone, anytime. She probably was suffering from symptoms long before she got this bad and something happened to her and she just snapped. I think its after Kid Cudi dumped her (not blaming him btw) and her dog died when she started changing. Sadly from the sound of the situation and the fact shes been in the hospital for over two months it seems that shes far too gone now, but hopefully her doctors can get her the right treatment so she can live a near eenough normal life. Wish her the best.

This is just a sad situation. Clearly, any criminal charges should be dropped and she should focus on getting better. This is not like the Lindsay Lohan mess, where substances and a sense of entitlement led to driving and theft issues.

I feel so bad that she's not getting better but hope she will soon. I just hope the doctors aren't keeping her on drugs that won't let her get better because the money in keeping her is good there. She's paying a lot of money to get better... some doctors are like lawyors, only out for the money. Some drugs take time though and hopefully meds will get worked out as she is one sweet talented girl who needs help so she can get on with her life. I hope she will put of of this and people will let her live this down, as she has always been so put together till now. I am so glad her family is watching over her... I hope her real friends are too. She is too sweet to have this crap going on.

This article is misleading. LPS means she is on a conservatorship. Lantermen Petris Short act circa 1970...look it up.Having said that I have been a Psychiatric RN for over 20 years in California. Amanda is extremely ill if she is still receiving inpatient treatment after all of this time and an LPS was obtained. She will be on that for awhile once it is permanent...most patients who are LPS'd NEVER get off the conservatorship because only the sickest most non compliant treatment resistant or those with treatment resistant disorders are placed on LPS status......many live out their lives in state hospital facilities:(
