Amanda Bynes Files to End Her Conservatorship After Nearly 9 Years
Amanda Bynes is trying to take back control over her life.
The former Nickelodeon star has filed to terminate her nearly nine-year conservatorship, her attorney David Esquibias confirmed to E! News.
Back in 2013, her mom Lynn was granted a temporary conservatorship after the actress was accused of trespassing on a neighbor’s property and starting a small fire in the driveway. She later underwent a psychiatric hospitalization and Lynn was given a full conservatorship in 2014, giving her legal control over Amanda’s medical, personal and financial matters.
Today, “Lynn is so incredibly proud of the progress Amanda has made over the last few years and is so excited about the next chapter in Amanda’s life,” Lynn’s attorney Tamar Arminak exclusively told E! News. “Based on the petition, and Amanda’s amazing progress, she completely supports Amanda’s request to terminate the conservatorship.”
Just last year, a source shared insight into Amanda’s growth, noting she had been “doing better than ever” and had gotten closer with her family amid the pandemic.
