According to People magazine, Bynes, 27, is continuing her recovery at her parents’ Los Angeles home.

Xoxo.” Another follower, Sonja Leon, was also glad to hear Bynes was out of the hospital. “Glad you could be home for the holidays,” she said. “Stay strong.” W. C. Sowder added, “Glad to hear you’re out. Take time to get comfortable with the rest of the world. Don’t look back, only forward.
