Amanda Bynes recently announced on Valentine's Day that she was engaged to a ‘mystery man’. The next day, it was confirmed Paul Michael is the one Bynes has her heart set on. The two have reportedly been dating for at least three months and met during their AA meetings.

Bynes' family has been known to be well aware of the engagement, but sources state that her parents have not met Michael, nor do they approve of him which could lead to them not being able to get married legally. Here’s why:

An inside told E! News it is "unlikely" Amanda Bynes "will ever" get her parents' approval to marry her fiancé Paul Michael.

"Amanda's parents are fully aware of her engagement and at this point are not approving Amanda to legally get married under the conservatorship," the inside adds.

Bynes has been ordered by law to live under her parent’s conservatorship since 2014, due to a series of arrests and misdemeanors. She eventually was placed on involuntary psychiatic holds. The conservatorship was reviewed regularly in court, and due to lack of improvement, it was extended another two years in 2018.

On Thursday, Bynes took to Instagram to apologize for rude comments that she made on social media in the past. She claimed she and new fiancé, Paul, have both been sober for a year.

"I just wanted to post a video to say I'm sorry to everyone 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 said. "Now, I've remained sober for over a year—same with Paul—and I just want to let you all know I love you guys and I'm so happy now. I feel like I got what's mine and that's Paul."

She took to her Instagram Story on Tuesday to thank her Instagram followers for their support. She also mentioned that she is excited to be launching a new clothing line.

"I'm really looking forward to starting my clothing line, and I'm hoping that in the near future it will be out online," Bynes said.

Bynes earned an associate's degree from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in June 2019. She was on her way to earning a bachelor's degree, but she reportedly dropped out mid-way.

Bynes' previous rude comments on social media were her first public words since she spoke to PAPER Magazine in late 2018 which was aimed to initate a comeback. However, a few months later, she was forced to check back into rehab due to the stress of being back media’s scrutiny.

It’s been a long hard road to sobriety for the former Nickelodeon star. And it seems like she will have a few bumps in the road regarding her marriage plans, but fans are relieved to know that she has been sober.
