OXNARD, Calif. - Amanda Bynes' parents are deeply concerned that their daughter may hurt herself or others unless they are allowed to assume control over her medical care and finances, court filings show.
The petition Richard and Lynn Bynes filed Friday not only detail her public incidents of disturbing behavior, including several arrests, but also reveal that the former child star has stated fears that she is being watched by smoke detectors and devices in the dashboard of her car. Ventura County Superior Court Judge Glen M. Reiser delayed ruling on the conservatorship, stating that there was no rush to act because the actress is under a two-week psychiatric hold at a hospital.
"We are deeply concerned that Amanda poses a substantial risk to herself, to others, and to property based on recent events in her life," the filing from Bynes' parents states. It cites numerous instances of increasingly bizarre behavior by their 27-year-old daughter in the past year.
