During the weekend, TMZ posted audio supposedly of Amanda Bynes plotting how to murder her father, Rick Bynes. She said, among many other troubling things, “Nothing would give me greater pleasure than like slitting his throat. That’s what I would love.”

In a second clip, Amanda threatened to shoot someone in the face “with an ugly insult” and told a man he’s “so gay” it hurts her feelings.

According to TMZ the audio was recorded by one of the women Amanda was crashing with in West Hollywood, but Rick and Lynn Bynes wanted the site to post the story because it “could be a wake-up call for medical professionals to intervene and get her help.”

Amanda, however, responded to the story by saying she’s already getting help.

She added in a statement to Access Hollywood that she’s sorry for “any pain” she caused her family and that she regrets trusting the women.

I’m sorry I trusted people who clearly were not my friends and capitalized on my illness. I am doing my best to get better. I am truly sorry for the statements I made. I am sorry for any pain I caused my family and others. I am thankful for everyone’s patience and understanding. I never expected others to take advantage and profit from my condition. I’m disappointed with those who lulled me into a false sense of security only to find out they really are only interested in selling my privacy to the media.

Lawyer David Esquibias said Amanda meets with doctors four time a week and that he’s in contact with her “all day, every day.”
