Amanda Bynes accuses dad Rick Bynes of incest, her parents respond

Rick Bynes - Amanda Bynes' Dad

After learning that her parents were preparing an intervention, Amanda Bynes reportedly flipped out and made a desperate attempt to flee New York City — but not before accusing dad Rick Bynes of incest.

Starting a long Twitter rant with a message about needing to “tell the truth,” Amanda said Rick called her ugly as a child and asked if she wanted to have sex with him. She said no, but claimed the incestuous behavior continued.

“My dad fondled himself in front of me so many times that i started recording him on my phone in hopes of catching him saying or doing something inappropriate around me so I could get him arrested & put in jail for the rest of his perverted life,” she said. She explained mom Lynn Bynes was aware of Rick’s “literally and physically incestual towards his own daughter [sic],” but never called the cops.

Vowing not to be “manipulated or brainwashed by anyone anymore,” Amanda said she is meeting with a lawyer today to get a restraining order against Rick. She added, “I cannot hear the sound of His incestually charged voice ever again.”

Midway through her rant, which lasted for nearly an hour, Bynes family attorney Tamar Arminak told TMZ Rick and Lynn “are heartbroken by these false accusations.” She added the older Bynes children are also “horrified at the situation.” According to TMZ, Amanda’s current whereabouts are unknown.

As we know by now, Amanda is hardly a credible source. (She infamously accused a cop of “slapping” her vagina when she was arrested for allegedly throwing a bong out of her apartment window.) However, this case seems to be a lose-lose situation: Either Amanda is telling the truth or she has just slandered her parents in one of the worst ways imaginable.

UPDATE Amanda retracted her claims, blaming the microchip she recently said was implanted in her brain.

    Hmm…and now her parents are ready to admit she’s mentally ill? Interesting timing. Everyone will be quick to assume she’s lying, but how do we know for sure?

      I agree! Sometimes when there is smoke, there is fire. It’s so hard to know because of the other outrageous things she has said. I just hope this girl gets help.

    • micro OP

      I definitely think she has severe mental illness causing delusions. That said it doesn’t mean everything she says is untrue. Who knows? I disagree with starcasms use of slander Bc if what she is saying is false, she probably still believes it to be true, which is different from slander to me.

      • Lyra

        Slander is saying something that ruins someone reputation. Whether you’re delusional/mentally disturbed and truly believed it happened, does not matter. If it did not happen and you drag a person’s name through the mud it is called slander.

        On the other hand I doubt they will sue their mentally ill child for slander. Also she admitted later on it wasn’t true.

    • Mia

      Yeah, as quick as people are to dismiss it I think it’s become obvious she is exhibiting schizophrenic behaviors. Schizophrenia is not a purely genetic mental illness. It is considered multifactoral because people develop the hallucinations, depression, voices, false reality, etc. to cope with life altering events brought about by their environment. Often these are events from their childhood.

  • Jessica

    Well she is messed up from something that went on in her life, so she could possibly be telling the truth but who knows?
    Why isn’t she in some kind of mental hospital for help!!?

    • Jessie

      Or she might just be “messed up” because she is severely mentally ill.

      She isn’t in a hospital because saying crazy things is not enough to get an adult detained against their will. She would have to either agree, or start doing things that would prove she is a danger to herself and others (not just mentally) – like when she was starting fires last year.

  • This would explain so much though

    Poor girl is falling apart..

    • Nanna

      With good reason apparently.

        If all of you that are appearing to believe THIS latest claim have followed this from the beginning, you will see that she has made all kinds of accusations about many people. When she was in the hospital , she was diagnosed with bipolar among other mental afflictions. Just last week she claimed there was a chip in her brain that allowed people to follow her. My heart goes out to Amanda and her family. She obviously needs to be on medications to stabilize her behavior. I think it’s OUTRAGEOUS that people automatically come to the conclusion that because she is being having bizarrely , it must mean these latest claims are true. With her mental health issues and the recent news about Stephen Collins, maybe THAT gave her her newest ideas to slam her parents. Yes, when someone acts out the way she has, there is certainly a problem, but in this case I think the problem is mental health problems.

    Poor girl.

  • kiki

    Amanda and I are both 28. When we were growing up, cell phones were not a thing let alone cell phones with cameras or camcorders. With all her mental issues, I believe that she believes this happened but not that it necessarily did. I know the h3ll of having your mind turn against you and it is terrible. I hope she gets help soon before she totally ruins herself.

    • Regina

      I was wondering about this too – does she mean recently? Because if this was years ago, cell phones with cameras were only around beginning in 2006? ish.

      • kiki

        Well cell phones were around my JR year so that would be 02-03. I don’t think cameras started being a thing till 04 or 05. So yeah 06 is about right.

    • laura taylor

      very good point I have read a little about her and sexual abuse probably did happen but at her place of employment [lots of pedophiles have very high positions] I’m sure her parents had a idea it is well known in hollywood

    • frontdoormom

      Exactly what I thought when I saw her tweets. I am 27 going on 28, we sure as heck werent too far advanced.

  • Adrian

    I left a post farther down but I just looked at Amanda Bynes Twiiter. For all of those that want to put ANY credit to what she is saying- go google her name and click on amandabynes twiiter and see a sample of the things she posts. Then say you think she is telling the truth. Pray that she gets the help she needs and that her parents don’t suffer any more.

  • AK

    The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.. I watch a lot of Dr Phil lol… that being said, Amanda has lied many, many times about ludicrous things. I believe she is very sick and needs help. I think her parents were in denial about how sick she was when they were granted conservatorship and dropped the ball bc who knows if its too late now.

    Also, she recanted already on twitter. Claims the microchip in her brain made her say it..

    What her father was accused of may be the worst crime to be accused of.. she needs help asap
