Amanda Bynes’ Parents Headed to Court to Request a Conservatorship

24, 2013 8:33 PM PDT Loading… Amanda Bynes ‘ parents are taking a cue from the now dog-eared Spears family playbook . The 27-year-old starlet’s mom and dad, Lynn and Rick, will be in court Friday morning to ask that a temporary conservatorship be established to give them control over their daughter’s financial and personal affairs, E! News has confirmed. Their decision comes after Bynes was detained Monday night on a 72-hour psychiatric hold after allegedly setting a fire in the driveway of a home near her parents’ house in Thousand Oaks, Calif. No injuries were reported and Bynes was not arrested, according to authorities, but bystanders have attested to seeing the actress’ pants on fire. PHOTOS: Amanda Bynes: Then & Now One witness described Bynes’ state at the time to E! News as “frantic and discombobulated.” Ventura County Sheriff’s deputies eventually caught up with her and, per a sheriff’s spokesperson, soon “determined that she met the criteria of a 5150 [hold],” meaning she had been deemed a potential danger to herself or others. The Ventury County Fire Department confirmed that they received a call about a “miscellaneous fire” at around 8:30 p.m. and the blaze was put out by local residents. Mark Sullivan/WireImage If a judge grants her parents’ request, they will be legally in charge of Bynes’ estate for whatever amount of time the court sees fit. Per California law, Rick and Lynn would need to show evidence that their daughter is unable to care for herself or otherwise handle her own affairs. A source told E! that Bynes’ pet Pomeranian was handed over to her parents after she was detained and they arecurrently caring for the pup. Reporting by Claudia Rosenbaum

Amanda Bynes: Two Truths and (Probably) a Lie

2. She threw a vase out of her 36th floor window. 3. She did not get kicked out of a gymnastics class. Truth: Amanda hasnearly completed a transformation into stripper Blac Chyna, complete with blonde bangs and cheek piercings.”I wanted to look likeBlac Chyna,” she explained (you can find our scientificanalysis of her “Blac face” here .) Truth: Amanda was notkicked out of a gymnastics class, she says, and really who cares enough to fight her on this one. Lie: Amanda (probably) did not throw a vase out of the window of her NYC skyrise, as she claimed following her arrest. The police report seeing a bong in her apartment, a bong that subsequentlybecame a projectile when it was jettisonedfrom her window. It was probably a bong. But, to be fair, a bong could also be used as a vase. If you want. 1. She knows how to twerk. 2. She believes she created the phrases “ILY” and “lololol.” 3. She does not like Nikki Blonsky.
