REPORT Amanda Bynes’ parents plan to surrender conservatorship, move to Texas

Rick Bynes - Lynn Bynes

Amanda Bynes’ parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes, reportedly plan to surrender their conservatorship — but it may be for the best.

According to TMZ, Lynn, who is technically the conservator, plans to file documents within the next few days to request her recently granted control of Amanda’s finances and health decisions are transferred to other people. Specifically, “a mental health professional who specializes in handling people with severe mental illnesses” will hopefully control Amanda’s health decisions while a money manager will be in charge of the former child star’s finances.

Amanda seems to approve of her parents plan to get her a new conservator because she believes they “are with holding my belongings and money from me so I don’t have new clothes or enough money to rent an apartment.” She added…

If the transfer is granted, Rick and Lynn plan to move to Texas to be closer to their older daughter, Jillian. They reportedly hope the distance will actually improve their relationship with Amanda.

As painful as this whole situation seems to be for Rick and Lynn, relinquishing Amanda’s conservatorship to professionals may be for the best. Not only will professionals have more experience navigating the ins and outs of the mental health system, but Amanda’s relationship with her parents is reportedly so strained that it’s nearly impossible for Lynn to be an effective conservator.

    This actually sounds like an amazing solution.

    I support their plan. They are getting up there in age and deserve some peace. They did all they could do. Amanda shows no appreciation for all they did for her and she shows NO interest in getting better. Her parents deserve a life without hostility and constant worry.

      totally agree..let the ungrateful brat go

    • Renee L

      Completely agree. You said it well.

    • kiki

      They are going to worry regardless. It’s their child. But I understand when parents get to the point where they can’t handle it anymore. Since Amanda fights them every step of the way, maybe a third party would actually be able to help her.

      I would never give up on my child. PLEASE DONT HAVE KIDS

  • Pat Brown

    very good decision.

  • afasfdasf

    Can’t blame them. Would you want to deal with the stupid bitch?

    • kiki

      She’s not a stupid b!tch. She’s mentally ill. People like you are what stops people from getting help when they so desperately need it.

  • cookiebynes

    That’s probably for the best.

  • Lauren

    This sounds like the best possible solution to a difficult situation. It seems like Amanda’s situation is way more extreme than they can handle. It’s best left to the professionals who have experience dealing with severe mental illnesses.

  • Gigi

    She’s so skinny and pretty. Anyway, I hope she’ll be able to control herself and prove she can be in charge of her own life.

    • Ya

      No hate but I notice on every article you say something about how skinny and beautiful she is lol

      • Gigi

        Because she is. At least I’m not spreading negativity by calling her a mentally unstable brat. It is actually possible to be bipolar AND skinny and pretty at the same time, you know?

        • Ya

          Oh absolutely. I feel really sad about the entire situation because she’s so young and talented.

  • jlo27916

    UMMMM wtf is she wearing?! What am I saying? She’s a mess… Those shoes are HIDEOUS!

  • Miranda

    Gosh I don’t see a good ending in this. I think her parents are making a wise decision, but I don’t see her ever willing to receive help. Such a sad situation for both her and her family. God bless them.

    On another note, I feel like she’s going to end up getting in legal trouble down the road and as sad as it is sounds that would probably be in her best interest in the scheme of things.

  • blablabla

    Do any of you know Amanda Bynes personally? If you believe everything the media writes then you must be really f***ing ignorant. She has admitted to being bipolar, but that doesn’t mean she’s unstable. Did it ever occur to you that she might be right in some of the things she’s saying. Jesus. You guys piss me off.
