Amanda Bynes Upgrades To Swish Rehab Clinic After Feeling "Scared" At UCLA

Amanda Bynes has now left UCLA Medical Center where she was receiving treatment for a mental illness in favour of a more upmarket, relaxed rehab facility in sunny Malibu.

The star is no doubt troubled, but there are many in the spotlight who have been, so an elite rehabilitation clinic like The Canyon, where the likes of Brooke Mueller have previously been treated, seems the perfect option for her to get her head together. Since the move, her lawyer Tamar Arminak has told TMZ that she is making 'great strides towards recovery, while previously been locked up at UCLA left her "scared" and "afraid" because she "was stuck with people in much worse condition than her" according to sources.

Other sources have revealed, however, that Amanda hasn't exactly tried her best to improve, claiming, "She interacts with people very little and rarely leaves the area where she's living" since she moved in 3 weeks ago. She is also apparently becoming increasingly anxious about paparazzi attention, something that has been made clear over the past months by her array of messy wigs that she has used to hide her face as much as possible.

"The entire Bynes family would like to ask that they be given some measure of privacy so they can focus on Amanda's health and well-being" was a statement made by a representative, as reported by E! Online.
