She Was Also On Hold In March

A few months ago (in March), Amanda Bynes was discovered in the nude roaming the streets of LA when she flagged down a vehicle and requested help. The actress reportedly told the driver she was “coming down from a psychiatric episode.” It was also reported that the actress may have been roaming the streets in the nude for days before getting any help.

The actress ended up being hospitalized for three weeks following the previous incident. Her ex-fiance reportedly told outlets he suspected Amanda was “off her meds” and that was what caused her episode back in March.


As fans of the actress know, she struggles with bipolar disorder and substance abuse. Likewise, she hasn’t had freedom for very long as her conservatorship (which lasted eight years) didn’t come to an end until March of last year.

Fans of Amanda Bynes are heartbroken as they learn her struggles have continued. They, however, remain hopeful that this young actress can get the help she needs to turn her life around.
