Amanda Bynes - Amanda Bynes' mother granted conservatorship
Amanda Bynes has been placed under the temporary conservatorship of her mother, Lynn Bynes, until September 30.
Amanda Bynes has been placed under the temporary conservatorship of her mother.
Lynn and Rick Bynes launched a bid to gain control over their troubled daughter's personal and financial affairs after she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold last month for attempting to light a fire in a stranger's driveway and on Friday (09.08.13) a judge agreed.
According to Us Weekly, Judge Glen. M. Reiser said the conservatorship gives Lynn the ''right to control placement and right to determine medical care. Provisionally does not have ability to contract other than minor conservatory matters. Essentially you're the boss''.
Tamar Arminack, the lawyer for Amanda's parents, said: ''My clients are just interested in getting their daughter well.''
Amanda's lawyer told the court during the hearing, which the actress did not attend, that she did not believe the conservatorship was necessary.
Another court date has been set for September 30 to reassess Amanda's care.
Meanwhile, Kris Jenner -who manages her reality TV star daughters' careers - recently praised Amanda's parents for officially applying to gain legal control of the actress's personal welfare and financial affairs following her downward spiral.
She said: ''This is something that, for me as a mom, makes me very sad, but happy that she's getting perhaps the help that she needs for one reason or another. ''I've always said, 'I don't know what goes on behind the scenes, I'm not there, I don't want to be the one who's quick to judge, you know, and be real negative.' I like to look at the glass half full. And so I'm really glad that, whatever's going on, this would be the start of a new beginning for her.''
