Amanda Bynes lives a pretty quiet and private life these days, but every once in a while the former Nickelodeon star gives her fans a treat by reappearing on social media to let everyone know she’s doing great after years of struggling with private mental health issues. The ex-star of “All That” has been MIA on her own social media since back in October, but emerged over the weekend in a candid shot that was shared on her boyfriend’s Instagram Stories.
Amanda Bynes appeared with a slight smile as she snuggled up to her boyfriend, Paul, in the latest shot to make its way on social media. The former Nickelodeon star also appears to have changed her look up once again, this time going with bangs while keeping the dark hair that she’s been sporting for the past few months.
After she was released from treatment in May 2020, Bynes briefly appeared on social media to update fans about her goals for the immediate future:
“Update: Getting my Bachelor’s degree from FIDM — Taking online classes, trying to get a 4.0 GPA :] ?” Amanda wrote to her followers.
She added, “Looking forward to starting my online store in the future #goals.”
Bynes also explained she, “Spent the last 2 months in treatment. Worked on coping skills to help with my social anxiety that caused me to drop out of school months ago.”
Upon leaving the treatment center, Amanda Bynes spent time in a transitional living home and attended weekly sessions of therapy. She has not discussed any updates with fans since, but sometimes no news is good news as the actress turned student of fashion design continues to live her life as a normal member of society.
Although Bynes remains under legal conservatorship by her mother, much like the situation with Britney Spears, it seems Bynes is also allowed to continue her relationship with Paul.
