While Amanda Bynes' 72-hour psychiatric hold was scheduled to end Thursday night, the troubled starlet's parents, Rick and Lynn Bynes, have been granted their request for their daughter to stay in the hospital for two more weeks while they seek a temporary conservatorship.
After weeks of bizarre and erratic behavior from the 27-year-old actress, her antics finally came to a halt after she was arrested and put on a 5150 hold when she set a small fire ablaze on a stranger's driveway, which also doused her pooch in gasoline.
The woman, Bonnie Braaten, who owned the property, previously spoke with In Touch, sharing, “The man from the fire department said she was 'whacked!' Acting all strange. I think she must have been high on something.”
While Amanda's parents will be in court Friday morning to try and secure a conservatorship, which will allow them to make legal choices for their unstable daughter, the What I Like About You star's lawyer had protested the initial two week extension.
During the court meeting on July 25, the judge ultimately sided with Amanda's parents, as her doctors stated they needed more time in order to properly diagnose her condition.
TMZ is reporting that an insider claimed Amanda is “suffering from a severe mental illness ‘with schizophrenic tendencies.’”
The actress is scheduled for court on Aug. 26, where she will be charged with reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and marijuana possession.
