"Hey everyone, this is Paul, my fiancé," Bynes said in the video. "I'm so lucky. As you can see, he’s drop-dead gorgeous. And, he’s also the best person on the face of the earth."

She also addressed some mistakes she made during her career while she was on drugs. She apologized for the vicious attacks she made on Twitter before deleting her account.

"I just wanted to post a video to say sorry to everybody who I called ugly on Twitter," she said.


"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," she continued.

She also took the time to thank her loyal fans.

"And, now I've remained sober for over a year – same with Paul – and I just want to let you know that I love you guys and I’m so happy now," Bynes continued. "I feel like I got what's mine and that is Paul."


Bynes had only starting addressing the suffering she endured from her drug addiction in 2018. She revealed to Paper magazine that she started smoking pot and then that evolved to harder drugs.

"Later on it progressed to doing molly and ecstasy," she said. "[I tried] cocaine three times but I never got high from cocaine. I never liked it. It was never my drug of choice."

She explained once she started using Adderall, she "got really into my drug usage and it became a really dark, sad world for me."


Even in 2018, she knew that she wanted to be done using for good.

"Those days of experimenting [with substances] are long over. I'm not sad about it and I don't miss it because I really feel ashamed of how those substances made me act," Bynes said at the time. "When I was off of them, I was completely back to normal and immediately realized what I had done — it was like an alien had literally invaded my body. That is such a strange feeling."
