Amanda Bynes also attacked TMZ for stating that she can be held in a mental institution. They reported that Amanda has not been diagnosed with any mental illness. Hher parents are worried there are signs she might be bipolar or schizophrenic, but Amanda has been unwilling to undergo psychiatric testing.
Her parents would like to create an involuntary conservatorship, similar to Britney Spears, but Amanda’s conduct is not so over the line that a judge would take away her freedom. If Amanda is so out of it she can’t understand the nature of the criminal cases that have been filed against her, a judge can halt the proceedings and order a psychiatric evaluation.
