Amanda Bynes

Bails On UCLA

For Malibu Rehab Joint

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes
left the UCLA Medical Center, where she was getting treatment for a serious mental illness, and is now ensconced at a fancy Malibu rehab center that caters to celebs ... TMZ has learned.

It's shocking ... the facility does not have the psychiatric facilities available at UCLA, and we're told she's still in a desperate state.  It's all the more shocking because she's under a special hold -- called an LPS -- which doctors got because they were so concerned about her well-being.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Amanda checked in to The Canyon approximately 3 weeks ago.  She interacts with people very little and rarely leaves the area where she's living. 

Amanda is not wearing her wig and is "paranoid" the paparazzi will find her.

The Canyon got in big trouble in 2011 ... after an employee allegedly sold confidential information about Brooke Mueller during her stay.  We're told Brooke settled her lawsuit against the facility for somewhere around $250k.

Another reason her mother should have kept control, but apparently her mother has better things to do than be her daughter's conservator. Amazing what money does to people. TAKE CARE OF YOUR DAUGHTER! I'm starting to wonder if mommy and daddy have a big life insurance policy on Amanda, and really aren't too concerned with keeping her alive...

TMZ is all over the map w/Amanda's condition....First she's improving, then she's showing no improvement, & now she's being transferred to a rehab center . Stop speculating, Her medical condition should stay private.

TMZ having the INDECENCY to even keep reporting on this mentally disturbed woman is what should have everyone up in arms.

I mean, who - of all the trash tabloids in all the world - WHO thinks it's OK to make money out of someone's mental illness, TMZ>? There's the dff between TMZ and Radar - Radar sail WAY close to the wind but they do NOT sail past it (and that's why many ex-TMZ fans now read only them). TMZ still exist in a world where anything goes, and if they cross the line, they can always blame someone else. Wake up TMZ, your days of making money that cheaply and that easily are over. Either grow up and embark on a real business, or piss off.

She probably didn't trust the doctors at UCLA and didn't feel respected there. She probably wants to go where they care that she is famous and won't treat her like just another bum they drag in from the gutter. UCLA is a research hospital, so they were probably messing with her all kinds of ways to see what would happen.


Paris Jackson got transferred out of there also to some psychiatric boarding school I guess. It seems UCLA was leaking a lot of information about her and not doing anything to help her.
