Following Britney Spears, another actress was able to get out of parental custody, which she was assigned because of her inappropriate behavior and drug addiction. Amanda Bynes, who is famous for playing comedies of the zero, went independent.
In 2013, at the age of 28, Amanda was placed under the care of her mother. This happened after several offenses, drug and alcohol abuse. The actress’ lawyer, David Esquibias, said her parents were worried about their daughter’s well-being at the time, and the custody decision seemed right.
In 2014, Amanda Bynes tweeted that she had bipolar and manic-depressive disorder. She has to take medication and visit a psychiatrist. But now the actress decided to start an independent life. She filed a petition to get out of her parents’ custody, and they didn’t mind. Also, the comedy star for the first time in a long time got in touch with fans.
The star’s lawyer said that for many years she worked on herself, reported to the court and achieved success. The mother agreed to the removal of guardianship and signed all the necessary documents.
Even though Amanda’s case has been compared to Britney Spears’ case, they are not the same. The actress’s lawyer says that custody of her was the result of the joint efforts of her parents. There were no quarrels between them and Amanda Bynes, they worked together. The star was not opposed to the fact that the mother makes decisions, because she understood that it was in her interests.
The actress is going to continue her studies at the Institute of Fashion Design and Merchandising.
