Why Was Amanda Bynes Put Under a Conservatorship?

But beginning in 2009, Amanda started dropping out of a number of film projects, and her net worth began to significantly fall. Fans speculated that the actress was struggling on a personal level. In June 2010, Amanda announced her retirement from acting to focus on building a fashion and fragrance line.

In 2012, the What I Like About You star was arrested for a DUI. Her California license was eventually revoked after being involved in four hit-and-run accidents. In July 2013, Amanda was detained after allegedly starting a small fire in the driveway of a stranger’s house in Thousand Oaks, California.

During a court case that same month, Amanda’s parents were granted a conservatorship to take full control of her finances. They claimed in court filings submitted in July 2013 that the Sydney White star had gone through $1.2 million of her savings in less than a year and was homeless without her income.

After years of ups and downs, Amanda filed a petition to terminate her nine-year conservatorship in February 2022. It was granted the following month.

What Does Amanda Bynes Do Now?

Amanda would go on to graduate from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, California, in June 2019. The following year, the actress announced her engagement to then-boyfriend Paul Michael on Valentine’s Day of 2020.

The actress will be making her first public appearance one year after her conservatorship was lifted. She is set to join her former All That castmates, including Kel Mitchell, Lori Beth Denberg and Danny Tamberelli at 90s CON in Connecticut in March, according to Variety.
