In all the media still swirling around Amanda Bynes’ mental health hospitalization, her mother, Lynn, is speaking out, saying that she has never once provided information on Amanda’s treatment. “I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading,” she said.
“Unless it’s a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt,” she told People. “Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe in keeping our daughter’s situation private for now.”
Lynn’s words come after a statement was issued Tuesday through her lawyer, claiming that Bynes had been moved to a different facility. Though the statement didn’t clarify where the 27 year old was receiving her treatment, other outlets reported she moved from UCLA Medical Center to the Malibu, California, rehab center The Canyon.
“Amanda is making great strides towards recovery,” the statement read. “The entire Bynes family would like to ask that they be given some measure of privacy so they can focus on Amanda’s health and well-being.”
Lynn Bynes currently has conservatorship over her daughter after a series of bizarre incidents three months ago where Amanda lit a fire on her neighbor’s driveway and threw a bong from her apartment window.
“We appreciate everyone’s heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time,” Lynn added. “Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation.”
