Amanda Bynes parents are to give up conservatorship over the actress in the hope of building a better relationship with her.
Amanda Bynes' parents are to give up conservatorship of the actress.
The troubled actress' welfare and finances were put in the control of her mother Lynn Bynes last week, but now she and her husband Rick Bynes are to file legal documents to hand her care over to someone else ahead of their planned move to Texas.
According to TMZ, Amanda's welfare will be in the hands of a mental health professional who specialises in handling people with ''severe mental illnesses'', while financial matters will be handled by someone else.
Lynn and Rick - who are relocating from California to be close to their other daughter - are said to hope that transferring the conservatorship will stop the 'Easy A' star from lashing out at them and help repair their relationship with her.
Amanda's conservatorship attorney David Esquibias hasn't commented on the personal aspect changing, but did reveal her financial affairs are to be put in the charge of an unnamed private trust firm, in order to make them more accessible to the actress, noting the 28-year-old star currently has no stable home or the means to rent an apartment.
He told 'Access Hollywood': ''My goal is to get her permanent adequate housing.''
While the next scheduled conservatorship hearing isn't due to take place until February 2015, it is hoped the matter will be resolved by the end of this week.
The news comes after Amanda - who was recently released from a psychiatric treatment facility in Pasadena, California after being involuntarily committed for the second time on October 10 -hit out on Twitter and expressed her desire to have a new conservator.
She wrote: ''I'm so mad at my parents
''They are with holding my belongings and money from me so I don't have new clothes or enough money to rent an apartment
''We aren't speaking
''So until I get a different conservator ill look terrible because I don't have enough to get new clothes or anything I need (sic)''
