Some strange goings on in the world of Amanda Bynes at the moment, with the star being snapped about the place in Manhattan with an apparently new do – or was she? E! Online reports that the trouble star was walking around the New York district sporting a new red haired look, which caused some attention among those passing her, convinced it was the star. However, apparently it could well have been an imposter. Strange.

"My hair is blonde I've never been a redhead! Somebody keeps posing as me! Check my photos on twitter for up to date pictures!" Amanda Bynes wrote on her Twitter account, confusing the matter somewhat. The person did look awfully like her after all. Bynes continued to insist that the person wasn’t her, singling out specific accessories the apparent fake was wearing. "Fake or real microdermals same glasses! I don't own those clothes and I'm blonde! Haha!" she commented.

Bynes, if you recall, has had a series of driving mix-ups, most of which occurred last year and related to her being drunk or otherwise intoxicated at the wheel. Indeed, she didn’t show up to her case regarding driving with a suspended license yesterday (April 2, 2013), though is believed to be getting ready to strike a plea deal.
