Child star Amanda Bynes is out of treatment.

Bynes, 34, made an odd come back to social media back in February, but her stay was short-lived.

The actress appeared to have a heart tattooed on her face, but the most shocking reveal was her announcement of being engaged. In March, the actress said she and fiancé Paul Michael were expecting a baby, with sources recently confirming she was "no longer pregnant.".

She went radio silent after that.

Her attorney, David Esquibias, later said that Bynes had been "seeking treatment for ongoing mental health issues."

“Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false," Esquibias told PEOPLE at the time.

"We ask for privacy during this time, and for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better.”

The "All That" actress graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in 2019, where she received her Associate of Arts degree. She popped into Instagram Saturday afternoon to offer her followers an update her education, love life, and more.

She Was 'So Drugged Out'

However, one person named Karen reported that they "just looked up Amanda Bynes...she's still on that spiral 🤦🏻‍♂️"

Hopefully that's not the case - but Bynes did have a tough time adjusting to adulthood.

Along with some super public meltdowns she was also arrested multiple times across 2010-2014. She also got herself banned from Twitter at some point during all this, which she later revealed traces back to her struggle with sobriety.

In 2018, the "She's The Man" star shared some advice with those dealing with drug or alcohol abuse.

"Be really careful, because drugs can really take a hold of your life. Everybody is different, obviously, but for me, the mixture of marijuana and whatever other drugs and sometimes drinking really messed up my brain,” she told Paper magazine.

“It really made me a completely different person. I actually am a nice person. I would never feel, say or do any of the things that I did and said to the people I hurt on Twitter."

Earlier this year, Bynes apologized to the people she "called ugly on Twitter", admitting to being "so drugged out" at the time.
