Amanda Bynes Returns To Instagram!
The accounts Amanda is following are @mrbrodybrown and @cathycee19. It’s interesting she is not following her rumored fiancé, Paul Michael.
Regardless, she’s on social media and sending a very important message to fans.
In the video she says, “What’s up Instagram. Amanda Bynes here. My court date is coming up in two weeks. I want to thank you all so much for your love and support. Peace out.”
Amanda then threw up a peace sign before ending the video.
Amand Thanks Fans For Their Support Amid Conservatorship Battle
She tagged @enews, @people and @usweekly.
It’s unclear if these news outlets have exclusive interviews coming out soon, or if she just wanted to grab their attention to bring attention to her post.
Amanda is currently wrapped up in a conservatorship battle with her parents.
Last month, the “Hairspray” actress moved to end her conservatorship after nearly a decade.
The Blast previously reported on Amanda’s wish to get out of her conservatorship which started in 2013.
After Amanda got involved in some danger-filled ordeals, including getting into a series of vehicle accidents and setting fire to a driveway in California, her parents took legal action and were given control of their daughter’s healthcare and money.
She Wants Control Of Her Life & Money
The American actress filed a lawsuit to end her conservatorship, which would serve as a huge step on the path to personal freedom.
According to the court document filed in Ventura County Court in California, the actress requested that the outside control of her person and estate be dissolved permanently. Through the filing, she expressed her displeasure at being kept under the shackles of the conservatorship for more than what was necessary.
To back up her claim, Bynes submitted paperwork with her doctor, requesting an update on her mental health, which she believes would help the swing the court’s decision in her favor during the upcoming hearing.
Amanda’s lawyer, David Esquibias, had earlier given an interview in September, citing that his client’s conservatorship would cease when it was “no longer convenient,” then it could be over.
He also provided an update on his client, stating that she is “doing pretty well, except from worry and trauma.”
While many are drawing comparisons between Britney Spears’ conservatorship experience and Amanda’s experience, the actress-turned-fashion student denies Britney had anything to do with her decision.
Amanda’s lawyer, David A. Esquibias has made it very clear – in no way was her decision inspired by the songstress.
Unlike Spears’ case where her father, Jamie Spears, actively fought against ending the conservatorship, Amanda’s family is standing right by her.
Britney’s Experience Has No Influence On Amanda’s Decision
In a statement made to TMZ, the actresses lawyer said that within the last two years, both “Amanda and her parents realized the significant progress she’d made in coping with bipolar disorder.”
Unlike the strife in Spears’ family, including the beef she shares with her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, Bynes seems to be getting along with her parents famously.
Her conservatorship hearing is scheduled for March 22.
