Amanda Bynes’ parents apparently will not renew their conservatorship over their daughter — though friends think they should.
As Amanda Bynes continuing problems are very evident to the whole world, it seems the actress’ own parents are not as worried.
Though Bynes’ parents Rick and Lynn held a conservatorship over their daughter’s finances and overall life since summer, 2013, they apparently are not going to renew it. That conservatorship expired on Sept. 10. The Byneses were not aware of Amanda being expelled from school (until reading about in the media), and according to various sources, thought she was still doing as well as when she got top grades last year.
“Rick and Lynn knew Amanda was smoking a lot of weed, but don’t think that means she’s an addict,” said a close family friend Thursday. “They also are adamant in refusing to believe she suffers from depression or any kind of mental illness. … It’s really kind of strange. They don’t see what everyone else sees. … Amanda continues to need professional help, or she will go off the deep end. I’m convinced of it, said the source.”
Another longtime Bynes insider added, “Lynn, in particular, thinks Amanda only acts strangely when she smokes marijuana. … There’s a lot more going on there than that!”
