Bynes Claims "I'm
Mary-Kate and Ashley
Olsen Type of Wealthy"
Amanda Bynes has plenty of troubles these days, but according to the star, money isn’t one of them.
Amanda exclusively tells In Touch that she’s “in the Mary-Kate and Ashley type of wealth [category],” referring to the Olsen twins, former child stars themselves who are now worth an estimated $300 million.

While Amanda is estimated to be worth at least $4 million (according to celebritynetworth.com), the 27-year-old star — who retired from acting at age 24 — has been racking up huge bills all over town totaling an approximate $30,000 in just one month.
“Her spending is out of control,” an insider tells In Touch of her recent shopping sprees, which include $11,000 on hair extensions at a Queens, N.Y., salon, month long stays at luxury hotels, crazy cab fares and more.

“Amanda stayed here for about a month,” a source at the luxe W Times Square hotel tells In Touch. “She ordered room service. Her bill must have been massive.” When she checked out, a source says, she left behind her laptop.
Spotted on April 18 hailing a cab, Amanda was sporting a $2,350 Louis Vuitton bag and $3,700 Cartier bracelet. One witness in NYC saw Amanda “get in and out of five cabs” in one day. At that rate, she can drop more than $1,000 a month on taxis.
