Amanda Bynes Was “Off Her Meds” When Roaming LA Naked, Says Ex-Fiancé

Her parents reportedly have no plans to reinstate her conservatorship.

Fans’ high hopes for Amanda Bynes‘s recovery have been shattered, as the All That star is now hospitalized under psychiatric care.

On March 19, the 36-year-old was allegedly “off her meds,” according to ex-fiancé Paul Michael, when she was spotted by passersby wandering around the streets of downtown LA, sans clothes. The actress reportedly flagged down a car and called 911, reports TMZ, stating that she was “coming down from a psychotic episode.”

She was reportedly taken to a police station where she was placed on psychiatric hold.

Michael, who spoke exclusively to Page Six, tells the newspaper that she’s “still off her meds,” and “she’s wild.” The Amanda Show star reportedly suffers from bi-polar disorder and substance abuse issues, about which she has been publicly candid. Even though she and Michael broke up last year, he says, the duo remain friends.

Former co-stars became concerned last weekend when Byrnes was a no-show for a planned appearance at 90s Con in Connecticut, citing illness. Nickelodeon stars like Kel Mitchell, publicly sent prayers to the star, reports US Weekly.

Bynes shot to fame in the late 90s when she starred in Nickelodeon’s The Amanda Show, quickly becoming one of the busiest actresses of the early 2000s. Her troubles with the law began in 2012, when she was arrested for DUI. Bynes has sought mental health and addiction treatment several times since then.

The Easy A star also made some dramatic changes to her appearance, going from her signature cascading blonde curls, to dying her hair black, piercing her septum, and tattooing the outline of a black heart beneath her left eye.

The She’s The Man star was recently released from a nearly nine-year conservatorship under her mother, and fans were hopeful that she’d return to public life. At the time, the actress told ET, “I have been working hard to improve my health so that I can live and work independently, and I will continue to prioritize my well-being in this next chapter.”

Another source tells TMZ the Bynes family likely won’t re-instate Amanda’s conservatorship, stating they found solace in the fact that she called 911 on herself.

The source also tells TMZ that Amanda’s parents, Rick and Lynn, hadn’t been “in touch with their daughter for some time.”

The star had been living by herself and pursuing a cosmetology degree, so the source says her parents believe the recent episode was “an anomaly.”
