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.

    Every tabloid can find her but they can’t? Weird. They should have taken care of this sooner.

    “These allegations stem from Amanda‘s mental state at the moment”

    THIS IS THE PROBLEM and this is what everything bad is happening again…Amanda’s mental state is not just “at the moment” sadly it’s FOR LIFE. Whenever they take the bandage off their eyes and realize their daughter is actually mentally ill and needs constant help, she will get a fair shot at staying with her treatment. It’s a family effort, and denying and saying it’s just pot won’t help.

    This whole situation is so sad. Her poor family. It really breaks my heart. I hope she gets the help she needs.

  • lilo

    Why doesn’t anyone ever talk about the alleged Dan Schneider rumors? Google it.

  • Storm

    Something about this whole situation does not seem right – as in, why are her parents so blase about this stuff? Remember when Joaquin Phoenix acted all crazy then it turned out it was for a documentary? People were diagnosing him with schizophrenia too, until he revealed all. I think Amanda is doing something similar. Her Tweets and behaviors are way too OTT and her family and friends would not be ignoring it all if they weren’t in on it. Just a thought.

    I wish I could be her friend just to help her. Seems like everyone around her doesn’t care about her at all.
