Amanda Bynes can't get the help she needs until something really bad happens ... because her parents will not re-establish a conservatorship ... TMZ has learned.
Multiple sources connected with the family tell TMZ ... Amanda's parents do NOT think she has a mental illness. As one source put it, "They think she's a bratty kid who thumbs her nose at them and smokes a lot of pot."
We're told everyone around her parents are urging them to get the conservatorship, but so far no luck. That said, it's impossible to put Amanda on a 5150 psychiatric hold until she creates a substantial risk to herself or others.
We're also told various professionals are trigger ready to get the 5150 if Amanda goes off the rails, and they believe it's only a matter of time.
NAILED For $10 MIL
in 'NCIS' Death Lawsuit
9/30/2014 5:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The family of a security guard who was killed on the set of "NCIS" just won a $10.4 million judgment against CBS ... TMZ has learned.
A CBS production van that was transporting "NCIS" crew members crashed into 52-year old security guard Julio Villamariona after the driver had a medical emergency and lost control. The guard died in an ambulance en route to the hospital.
CBS admitted during the lawsuit the driver had a medical condition it should have known about, so the trial was really about the amount of damages the family would collect.
Tuesday afternoon a jury decided ... and gave Julio's widow and 3 adult children a total of $10.4 million.
The family's lawyer, Brian Panish, says, "I am so proud of the surviving family members and the jury for standing up to a powerful entity like CBS."
Tossed Out of Nightclub Party
For Jermaine Dupri [UPDATE]
9/30/2014 5:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Jagged Edge got bounced from Jermaine Dupri's birthday bash at a swanky Atlanta club ... because the guys refused to ditch their ball caps at the door.
Gold Room host Kenny Burns tells TMZ ... the R&B duo showed up under-dressed -- hoodies and caps -- for the exclusive event. Owner Alex Gidewon tried to compromise -- since it was Jermaine's party ... agreeing to let the guys in IF they lost the hats.
We're told when Jagged Edge refused, they got the boot -- which pissed off Jermaine BIG time ... and all 3 guys started cussing out security. Eventually they all got the heave ho.
JD tells us he and his crew, including Jagged Edge, were in the club for 35 minutes -- without any problems -- before management ever complained. He feels the club was very disrespectful.
The club seems willing to forgive and forget with Jermaine ... but we're told Jagged Edge has been banned from the Gold Room.
Dodging Miranda Kerr in Paris!
9/30/2014 3:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber just left a big fashion party in Paris that was filled with celebs ... and we're told the Biebs made sure he didn't cross paths with the modern version of Helen of Troy -- Miranda Kerr!
Justin hit up the CR Fashion Book Party and mingled with Kim Kardashian, Kendall, Kris, Paris Hilton and Selena Gomez. Our spies say Justin was gushing about Selena, telling people how beautiful she is and how they're really tight now. So the whole champagne dinner with Kendall was innocent.
But our spies say Justin very consciously stayed clear of Miranda Kerr, who triggered the war between Justin and ex-hubby Orlando Bloom.
Machine Gun Kelly
Thanks, Judge ...
For Hiding My Boozy Past
9/30/2014 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Machine Gun Kelly parties HARD ... but his legendary tales of getting wasted can't be used against him when he goes to court for allegedly slicing open a guy's finger during a nasty bar brawl.
Kelly's being sued by a bouncer who claims the rapper nearly took his digit off cleanly ... when he fired a liquor bottle at him during a massive fight at a St. Petersburg, FL tavern in 2012.
In new court docs, MGK says his drug-and-booze fueled past should be excluded from the trial because it would taint the jury by making him look like an out-of-control party animal.
A judge agreed ... ruling the jury can only hear about any drinking connected to the bottle that was allegedly thrown the night of the fight. So, jurors will never get to see a "Rager Shot" in progress. Sad.
Justin and Kendall
Romantic Dinner in Gay Paree!
9/30/2014 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner giggled over a champagne dinner in Paris Tuesday night ... which raises the question, huh?
Justin is in Paree with Selena Gomez. In fact, they were spotted eating breakfast earlier in the day.
Bieber picked Kendall up at her hotel in a Rolls and drove her alone to the popular Ferdi restaurant.
Here's why it's especially interesting ... Selena doesn't like the Jenner girls. You'll recall .. after Coachella Selena cut off all ties, calling the Jenner girls toxic.
As for Justin and Kendall ... her people say they're just long-time friends. So, do you believe them?

Assaulted by Kim K Attacker
But Paris Cops Don't Care
9/30/2014 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The guy who attacked Kim Kardashian in Paris last week has struck again -- this time Ciara was his victim -- and Paris cops still think it's a stupid, nothing offense and they aren't taking action.
Vitalii Sediuk was standing outside the Valentino fashion show wearing a trench coat, and as Ciara passed him he lost the coat and hugged her hard, wearing a thong.
Sediuk had something written on his leg referencing a USA ban ... he's been barred from red carpets in the States following his attack on Brad Pitt.
We reached out to Paris cops to see if they'd now take action against Sediuk, but they said they have no plans ... they say it's not important enough to warrant their attention.
My Days in the Cloud
9/30/2014 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Meagan Good isn't ashamed of the photos of her that got leaked as part of the celebrity nude photo hacking scandal, but she and her husband agree ... no more cloud for them!
Good and her husband DeVon Franklin were out Monday night at Couture in Hollywood where the couple said they are taking the scandal in stride ... at least we think that's what Franklin meant when he quoted the Bible.
Franklin said they are keeping any future private moments out of the cloud ... which is interesting because when we asked Megan about the scandal before her photos leaked, she said she didn't keep any photos there anyway.
Guess we know which of the two got hacked ...

I'm Being Forced Out ...
For Being SOBER!
9/30/2014 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mega-popular EDM group Krewella has no place for people who don't party ... because a former member claims he was kicked out for being too clean.
Kristopher Trindl says he formed Krewella back in 2010 with former girlfriend Jahan Yousaf and her sister, Yasmine ... but now says the women want to morph the group into a duo. In a new lawsuit, Trindl says the girls came up with a lame reason for kicking him out ... that he acts too depressed.
Trindl partied plenty before he went to rehab last year. After rehab, he says the women started treating him differently ... and he believes it's because he became a teetotaler.
He does admit relapsing twice and missing a major event -- the Electric Daisy Carnival. Hmmm.
Trindl says to add insult to injury, the girls put up a billboard of themselves on the Sunset Strip.
Trindl says when he came back from rehab, the sisters didn't like the new, sober Kris ... because he no longer drank and partied. He claims they even staged an intervention -- to try to force him into rehab again -- because they thought he was depressed and needed treatment.
He says it's clear ... they just want him gone so they can take his one-third share of Krewella's earnings. He is suing the sisters for more than $7M in damages.
