After months of questions about Amanda Bynes’ wellness, mother Lynne Bynes is finally speaking out — in an attempt to get her daughter more privacy.
“I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading,” Lynne said of Amanda, who was recently reported to have received official diagnoses of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Although Lynne did not address Amanda’s current whereabouts or condition, People reported the 27-year-old actress will remain in a Malibu treatment center for the foreseeable future.
“Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe in keeping our daughter’s situation private for now,” Lynne said of Amanda, whom she and husband Rick Bynes helped get into acting as a child. “We appreciate everyone’s heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time. Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation.”
We hope for the same.
