It seems like just yesterday we were watching Amanda Bynes on The Amanda Show, or feeling jealous of her as she ran around London in the movie What A Girl Wants (who doesn't still watch that on a girls night in?)

However, over the last decade, the former child actress has completely gone off the rails, dealing with addiction and depression.

While it appeared for a short time that she had gotten her act together and was doing better, now it looks like she has faced some major setbacks recently.

In 2018 It Appeared Bynes Was Doing Better

In November 2018, it seemed as if Bynes had started to get her life together. She spoke with Paper magazine about her struggles with depression and substance abuse.

She told the publication, "I started smoking marijuana when I was 16. Even though everyone thought I was the 'good girl,' I did smoke marijuana from that point on. I didn't get addicted and I wasn't abusing it. And I wasn't going out and partying or making a fool of myself... yet."

She continued, "Later on it progressed to doing molly and ecstasy. (I tried) cocaine three times but I never got high from cocaine. I never liked it. It was never my drug of choice. I definitely abused Adderall."

Bynes even looked like a whole new woman, having lost the look she had in an infamous mugshot years prior.

Now, it appears as if she may be in a bad place again. The She's The Man star revealed recently that she was engaged, however it was reported recently that her family will not allow the marriage to go through.

Sources recently told TMZ that Bynes' family will never let her marry fiance Paul Michael and have yet to even meet him. Her mother is her conservator, therefore Bynes cannot get married without her consent.

And, as all this has been going on, she recently took to her Instagram to apologize for past behavior on Twitter.

In a clip that also revealed she was engaged, the actress said, “Hey, everyone, this is Paul, my fiancé. I’m so lucky. As you can see, he’s drop-dead gorgeous. He’s also the best person on the face of the Earth.”

She continued, "I just wanted to post a video to say I’m sorry to everybody whom I called ugly on Twitter. I was feeling so ugly at the time, and it was really hard for me to express myself at the time because I was so drugged out.”

Bynes Spoke About Regretting Past Tweets


Bynes had also spoken of her regret about past tweets in her Paper magazine interview, saying, “I’m really ashamed and embarrassed with the things I said. I can’t turn back time but if I could, I would. And I’m so sorry to whoever I hurt and whoever I lied about because it truly eats away at me.”

She continued, "It makes me feel so horrible and sick to my stomach and sad. Everything I worked my whole life to achieve, I kind of ruined it all through Twitter. It’s definitely not Twitter’s fault — it’s my own fault.”

Will Bynes mother actually allow her to marry in the future? And, has she fallen off the wagon again? We'll have to wait and see.
