Amanda Bynes‘ mother Lynn has spoken out for the first time after being granted legal control over her daughter.
“I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading,” Lynn, 66, told People.
“Unless it’s a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt,” she added. “Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe in keeping our daughter’s situation private for now. We appreciate everyone’s heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time. Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation.”
Amanda, 27, was hospitalized back in July after a drive-way burning incident and she is now in a rehab facility in Malibu where she will remain for the foreseeable future.
