TMZ first reported that Amanda Bynes’ current 5150 psychiatric hold may be extended to two weeks in order to properly diagnose the actress with a mental condition. Reportedly, there is enough evidence to suggest Amanda has significant problems, and doctors want to be sure they diagnose her correctly.
Allegedly, Amanda’s parents are looking to get a conservatorship over their daughter to ensure her well-being. The recent behavior she has exhibited could lead a judge to agree if her parents file the proper paperwork.
Yesterday, Amanda set a gas fire in the driveway of an elderly woman’s home she’s never met in Thousand Oaks, California. This lead to the police being called and a 5150 hold being put into place.
