Amanda Bynes Getting Married — Engaged Star Says ‘I Want To Be Married’
Since Amanda was arrested on Sept. 28, her parents have admitted they aren’t sure of her whereabouts. So sad. Now, the actress has been spotted in New York City — and wearing an engagement ring. She spoke to In Touch about her secret marriage plans.
“I am very needy for friendship and I hate men. I want to f** them, but I can now say I’m engaged — get away from me. I want to be married and I want to be away from people,” she reportedly told the magazine on Oct. 5.
Amanda also told In Touch that her fiancé lives in Costa Mesa, Calif., where he works in a bait shop. She revealed that he is 19 years old. She also told the mag that she wants to move to New York City and have children with her fiancé.
“I want boys, for sure. However many I can pop out. I don’t want a gorgeous girl around. Then I [would] feel way jealous. Ew,” she said to In Touch about having children. She says she and her fiancé will move to New York City because she doesn’t like that “in California, you need to drive.” She also said, “I really do not enjoy driving. I don’t like the way I look in a car. The lighting is bad.”
Considering that many are worried about Amanda’s mental state right now, we’re not sure if getting married is the best idea. Do you think Amanda is in a place to get married at this point in her life?
