The record boss hoping to release Amanda Bynes' new rap album has offered to help her parents pay for the actress' legal and medical bills in a bid to get her out of hospital.
The Hairspray star was arrested last month (Jul13) after allegedly starting a small fire on a driveway in her parents' neighborhood of Thousand Oaks, California. She was initially hospitalized for 72 hours, but a court extended her stay following concerns about her ongoing mental health, and she has since transferred to UCLA Medical Center at the request of her parents, who have won a temporary conservatorship over the actress.
And as the family awaits a court decision about the conservatorship, Chinga Chang Records boss Daniel Herman reveals Bynes has been calling to him to discuss her record deal.
He tells blogger Perez Hilton, "I've talked with Amanda a few times and she wants out. She sounded normal, lucid, chill and focused."
And he still has big plans for the troubled actress, adding, "My record offer to Amanda has not changed one bit in terms of the vision... I believe Amanda can work out her issues outside of a treatment center and I'm willing do anything in my power to make that a reality... even fund it. (Her mother) Lynn knows I care about Amanda getting better before we hit the studio."
