Amanda Bynes Sued by Mental Facility for Allegedly Not Paying Almost $2,500 for 2-Day Stay
Uh oh. The rehab facility where Amanda Bynes spent a two-day stay in February is claiming that the actress owes them money.
According to documents obtained by In Touch, the 33-year-old is being sued by Creative Care, Inc. — located in Woodland Hills, California — for allegedly not paying $2,467 for inpatient treatment.
In the court papers, the facility claimed the What I Like About You alum was a patient from February 21, 2019 to February 22, 2019. “The defendant, Amanda Bynes, was a client at our dual diagnosis residential treatment center. She was at our facility for two days receiving inpatient,” the company stated.
In the documents, the company wrote that their monthly residential treatment rate is $37,000 or $1,233.33 per day. Creative Care Inc. hasn’t physically served the California native with papers because they don’t know her address. The original trial date was scheduled for May 31, but they requested to push it back to July 2.
The treatment center claimed they attempted to serve Amanda with the papers, “but defendant has moved.” Before the facility filed the lawsuit, they asked the former Nickelodeon star to pay her bill.
In March, the brunette beauty checked into rehab after she was sober for three years, a source told Radar Online at the time. One month afterward, her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, said it was completely her idea. “It was her decision and her choice to address the situation [and] seek treatment, which I think is an incredibly mature way of handling this type of thing,” she told Access.
In November, the comedian got candid about her past drug abuse in an interview with Paper magazine. “I started smoking marijuana when I was 16. Even though everyone thought I was the ‘good girl,’ I did smoke marijuana from that point on,” she revealed. “I didn’t get addicted [then], and I wasn’t abusing it. And I wasn’t going out and partying or making a fool of myself … yet.”
She continued, “Later on it progressed to doing molly and ecstasy. [I tried] cocaine three times, but I never got high from cocaine. I never liked it. It was never my drug of choice.” However, Amanda admitted she started taking Adderall on a daily basis. “I definitely abused Adderall,” she said.
