After Amanda Bynes was forcibly hospitalized following a driveway burning incident in July, rumors ran wild about what was wrong with the former child star. On behalf of Bynes, her lawyer Tamar Arminak addressed several rumors by saying, “There has been much speculation about Amanda’s medical condition… She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private.” Arminak continued, “However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors. For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it.” On April 5, the 28-year-old actress tweeted pictures of herself looking happy while sunbathing in a bikini on vacation in Los Cabos, Mexico.
“Amanda currently is on zero medication,” Arminak said. “She’s devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She’s never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she’s proud to say she’s been marijuana-free for the past nine months.” However, that doesn’t explain her bizarre behavior leading up to her hospitalization. ~Alexandra Sharova
