More bad news for the parents of Amanda Bynes — they reportedly ‘don’t know’ where their daughter is following her arrest on Sept. 28. And, they don’t even know who posted her $15,000 bail!
Amanda Bynes has hit another rough patch. The 28-year-old actress turned fashion student was arrested for driving under the influence in Van Nuys, California and now her parents, Rick Bynes and Lynn Organ are not only in denial of their daughter’s issues, but also reportedly have not spoken to her — and have no clue where she is.
Amanda Bynes’ DUI: Missing After Arrest
Amanda’s parents told TMZ they found out about their daughter’s arrest like we did — from the media. They also just kept answering “don’t know” to questions about where she was or who posted her bail following the arrest — but it wasn’t them.
Following Amanda’s many issues over the years, she was living with her parents until July. Her conservatorship ended earlier this month and she moved to Orange County and was attending the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Irvine, California.
Amanda’s Family In ‘Denial’ Over Issues
She was staying out of the limelight until her most recent arrest, and HollywoodLife.com learned exclusively that her parents are actually in denial of how serious her issues are again.
“Not only is Amanda in denial over the severity of her ongoing problems, but so is her family,” a source close to the actress told us. “It’s not a shock that she was picked up by the cops … again. It was only a matter of time. There’s this shame attached to mental illness, so unfortunately it’s not treated and it only gets worse. If Amanda was a diabetic, wouldn’t she be given the proper treatment? Of course she would.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you shocked that Amanda was arrested again? Do you think her parents to step in again? Let us know.
