Amanda Bynes' Parents File For A Conservatorship
Amanda Bynes' parents have finally done something that they've wanted to do for a while as they watch their daughter spin out of control: filed court documents asking a California judge to impose a conservatorship on her.
It's difficult to get a conservatorship in California, TMZ reports, but her parents are filing for the conservatorship because of Bynes' apparent mental illness.
Medical professionals have said that Bynes is exhibiting symptoms of schizophrenia. They asked to put a 2-week extension on the 5150 hold she was put under after she started a fire at the home of an elderly woman in Thousand Oaks. It's not clear what aspects of Bynes' life her parents would want authority over, TMZ says.
It could be similar to the conservatorship that Britney Spears was put under a a few years ago. Spears reportedly told Bynes that she is glad that her dad took the reigns in the middle of her arrests and breakdowns.
There will be a court hearing on the conservatorship on Friday.
