Amanda Bynes' Mom

Drops Bid for


9/26/2013 1:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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  There's no need for a conservatorship anymore, so she's withdrawn her petition.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.

When you say there is no improvement what do you mean? Do you mean she is still at the lighting driveways on fire level, or do you mean she is doing much better on the medications as you yourselves stated in earlier posts?

She will be in the hospital for a LONG TIME. It's not like she is going to get better over night.

This type of mental illness strikes you in the very prime of your young life. It takes away everything. I am so sorry that she is going through this, I have been through this too... Some people recover and live somewhat normal lives and some never do. I pray she stabilizes... This is a devastating disease for the patient and family... I applaud her family for doing what is right,this isn't easy for them... God bless them...

Looking at her before and now, you gotta wonder, where did that girl go? She was adorable and spunky. Now, stuck in an institution.

I wish her well and wonder what's her diagnosis and if electric shock and lobotomy is still used to treat some mentally ill and hope Amanda doesn't fit in this criteria.

Praying for Amanda and her family and her doctors.

The fact that her mom dropped her bid for conservatorship says that Amanda will be in long term psych care, thus, there's no need for a conservatorship, because Amanda will be hospitalized long term and unable to spend her on money.

just because    

anyone ever think this is one big conspiracy to get amanda bynes off the hook for everything like dui, smoking weed, stealing from weed dealer, bong out window, arsony? or a fake witness protection service...

“He didn’t realize at first because he’s a delivery weed service, but when he went in his bag he saw his stash was missing. She even replaced it with empty weed jars!”
The source tells Radar that not only has Amanda lost her marijuana delivery service because of it, but she better watch her back.
“He won’t go to her anymore,” the source said.
“And she could end up really getting screwed by these guys. They’re good dudes, but you don’t steal from drug dealers!”
