Amanda Bynes Placed On Psych Hold After Accusing Her Dad Of Physical & Mental Abuse, Mother Responds

Amanda Bynes used Twitter, yet again, to rant and let us know just how she really feels. The former Nickelodeon star called out her father, Rick Bynes, on Friday. In a series of very bold tweets Bynes accused him of mentally and physically abusing her as a child. She later attempted to take everything back by not only deleting the tweets but blaming the accusations on the “microchip” in her brain—which she claims were placed on his behalf. Check out the tweets below.



He called me ugly as a child and then asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and i did not know how to respond and I said no and then — amanda bynes (@amandabynes) October 10, 2014  I was forced to live with my dad which was a total nightmare — amanda bynes (@amandabynes) October 10, 2014     My dad fondled himself in front of me so many times that i started recording him on my phone in hopes of catching him — amanda bynes (@amandabynes) October 10, 2014







Bynes’ mother issued a statement to E! News through her attorney, Tamar Arminak, denying the claims made by her daughter. 

“I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years,” she says. “Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! These allegations stem from Amanda’s mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband’s character could be slandered in such a way.”

Bynes’ brother and sister, Tommy Bynes and Jillian O’Keefe, also issued a statement through Arminak, telling TMZ, “We are disturbed beyond words that Amanda would come up with such a fabrication as a way to avoid getting much needed help or treatment. … We are pained by (Amanda’s) behavior but we absolutely give our full unconditional love and support to our wonderful parents.

According to People, who Bynes co-signed on Twitter after bashing two other publications, she has been hospitalized and placed on a psychiatric hold after flying to Los Angeles from New York on Friday.

 TMZ reports doctors have places her on 5150 psychiatric hold where she will be held for at least 72 hours.
