Amanda Bynes needs some serious help and her family is reportedly worried sick over her recent behavior.
The 28-year-old told is now claiming that she is engaged to a 19-year-old guy named Caleb that works at a bait shot in Costa Mesa, CA. Is she really engaged?
Bynes’ strange remarks come on the heels of her DUI arrest in California, before she took off for New York after her parents’ conservatorship over their troubled daughter ended.
Amanda spoke to In Touch, telling a reporter, “I am very needy for friendship and I hate men. I want to f**k them, but I can now say I’m engaged — get away from me”.
She explained she wants to tie the knot because she “wants to be married and I want to be away from people.”
The former Nickelodeon star claims her fiance’s name is Caleb and that he is a 19-year-old that works in a bait shop in California. There are reports that Amanda met Caleb when they were both in rehab.
She told the publication she hopes they will settle down in New York because she “really [likes] walking and riding [her] bike, and in California, you need to drive.”
She adds, “I really do not enjoy driving. I don’t like the way I look in a car. The lighting is very bad.”
Here’s Amanda in a video captured by TMZ, where she is shakily riding her bike around New York.
She told In Touch, “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.”
A source close to the former actress shut down the engagement rumors, saying, “She isn’t getting engaged. She’s delusional. This is just more proof of her shaky mental state”.
Amanda’s brother, Tommy, and sister, Jillian are extremely concerned for her because she isn’t returning their phone calls or texts. They fear for her safety and well-being, especially since Amanda is now in New York City. They’re afraid she’s going to die there.”
Bynes has been tweeting from a couple of secret Twitter accounts.
She also posted this photo:
We understand that Amanda is a 28-year-old woman now, but her parents need to step in and help her.
We are hoping Rick and Lynn Bynes will hop on a plane and try and make certain their daughter is mentally stable. It’s not looking good.
Amanda’s mother is planning a trip to New York City in the next couple of weeks.
A source stated, “She is deeply disturbed by the pictures of Amanda appearing to be very wobbly on a bike in traffic. Reports of Amanda talking to herself in restaurants are also very troubling signs.”
Lynn is in a tough position because Amanda’s father doesn’t believe she is mentally ill. He thinks she is just behaving like a spoiled brat.
The insider said, “The only reason Lynn hasn’t hopped on a plane sooner is that even if she does find Amanda, there is very little she can do to bring her back to Southern California. The conservatorship ended in August and Amanda has been on her own ever since then. Lynn now recognizes that ending the conservatorship was a terrible mistake.”
