Amanda Bynes' Siblings Speak Out Against Her Allegations

Amanda Bynes‘ siblings have released a statement in support of their parents after their sister made claims that her father abused her as a child.

“We are disturbed beyond words that Amanda would come up with such a fabrication as a way to avoid getting much needed help or treatment,” Jillian O’Keefe and Tommy Bynes told TMZ in a statement through their lawyer. “We are pained by her [Amanda's] behavior but we absolutely give our full unconditional love and support to our wonderful parents.”

Jillian and Tommy also said that they have “the most wonderful parents who have ever lived.”

Amanda‘s mom Lynn has also spoken out against the claims, which the former actress ended up retracting.

    I feel bad for this family. Hard enough to go through something like this in your family without the world knowing, but thanks to social media this has spread like wildfire. I hope Amanda gets the help she needs timely.

    Can they not go back to court and force her back into treatment? It’s quite obvious that she’s off her meds and needs to be back in psychiatric care.

  • Gilmore

    I really think news outlets should just stop reporting on her. This situation is so f-cking sad since she’s clearly mentally ill and needs help. Technically she’s not even actress anymore, she’s no longer involved in the entertainment business, so why put her on an entertainment site anymore? It’s all so unsettling, the girl isn’t well.

    WAIT is LATE to the party. Its well known that her siblings like her parents have been trying to help her. BUT when a person is doing everything they can to reject that help and says they don’t need it they will do and say anything to put the blame on others for their actions, like an addict or some one with alcoholism.

    The law says that you cannot force someone into treatment unless they prove they are a physical danger to themselves or others. Amanda may be acting crazy, but it will take a bigger thing to force her into involuntary treatment.

  • Jack


    Since Amanda is a legal adult (18+) only she decides. (unless something violent, etc happens)

    @WAIT: What in the world could they do that hasn’t already been done? You can’t help a person who has no desire to be helped.

    “We are disturbed beyond words that Amanda would come up with such a fabrication as a way to avoid getting much needed help or treatment,”

    And this is what it boils down to. Amanda is mentally ill, not unintelligent. She knows that it was her parents who took her in hand and worked with the doctors to get her stabilized that last time she melted down.
    In her mind, nothing is wrong with her, but knows that it will be her parents again who will be called upon to advocate for her and help get her back on her meds. I’m sure in the state she’s in now, that is the last thing she wants.

    Her siblings have no idea if she was abused or not. A friend of mine’s sister was abused and he didn’t find out until he was 40 and she 38. She was molested. Of course he believed his sister. Duh! Sorry but if you are this screwed up you were abused. Everything points to it and just because they weren’t abused doesn’t’ mean she wasn’t. Besides, parents are humans and anytime someone says that their parents were the best ever it usually means that they are covering up something. No parent is perfectly wonderful because no human is perfectly wonderful it just doesn’t exist.

    Abuse slowly takes it’s toll, it slowly rots the brain from the inside out. I knew she was abused last year and now it’s finally starting to come out.
    In…Every single case study, every single book, and every single person that I have ever met who was mentally off was abused. She. Was. Abused.
