Amanda Bynes' Mom Responds to Sexual Abuse Allegations

Amanda Bynes‘ mom Lynn is speaking out after her daughter made some shocking accusations claiming that her father Rick sexually abused her as a child.

“I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years,” Lynn said in a statement to E! News through her attorney Tamar Arminak. “Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! These allegations stem from Amanda‘s mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband’s character could be slandered in such a way.”

“My clients are heartbroken by these false accusations. Their older children are also horrified at the situation,” the lawyer added in a statement to TMZ.

Earlier today, it was reported that Lynn and Rick were on their way to New York to try and get Amanda to admit herself into a mental health facility, but they were unable to locate their daughter.
