Amanda Bynes' parents granted conservatorship

The parents of troubled actress Amanda Bynes have been granted a temporary conversatorship over their daughter's affairs as she receives treatment in a psychiatric hospital.

The Hairspray star was placed on a 72-day involuntary psychiatric hold on 10 October (14) following days of bizarre behaviour. On Tuesday (28Oct14), her treatment at Las Encinas Hospital in Pasadena, California was extended by another 30 days because doctors deemed her unfit for release.


Bynes' parents Lynn and Rick filed legal documents to resume control over the star's affairs. According to papers obtained by TMZ.com, they say she is a "substantial risk" to herself and others and is spending "alarming amounts" of money. The judge granted their request.


In the documents, they state Bynes' only income is from a rental property, but her current net worth stands at $5.7 million.


Lynn and Rick were first granted a conversatorship in August last year (13) after Bynes was placed on a psychiatric hold for the first time. Their control over her affairs ended in June (14). It is not known when the new conversatorship will expire.
