Nick Cannon Reaches Out To Amanda Bynes In An Open Letter
Nick Cannon showed his support and concern for his former All That co-star, Amanda Bynes, by reaching out in an open letter.
“As of lately I have been hit with an onslaught of questions about someone I consider family, someone I watched grow up, and someone I genuinely feel is one of the most pleasant human beings I have had the pleasure of meeting, Amanda Bynes,” Nick wrote.
“Sometimes I would answer in a playful humorous manner and sometimes I would brush it off as another Pop culture topic that a reporter was trying to retrieve a sound bite for. But after recent events of Amanda being admitted under psychiatric care and reported as 5150, I see this as no laughing matter,” Cannon explained.
Mariah Carey’s husband then explained that nobody deserves to be judged. “We are all equal and we all have our downfalls, fame or no fame. Money or no money. Life is hard for everyone in some since. And we need each other to in times of despair. No one can make it through anything alone,” Nick shared.
“I say to my sister Amanda Bynes you’re not alone. I’m here for you. I understand. I care and I appreciate you, because that’s what family does and that’s what family is for,” Cannon wrote.
“I’m here! Call me! Because I truly believe, the hand you’re helping up today may be the one you’re reaching for tomorrow. So not to be all cheesy and over sentimental but I got to end this with the ingenious Wither’s lyrics “Lean on me when you’re not strong and I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on. For it won’t be long until I’ll need somebody to lean on,” Nick added.
Last week, Bynes was taken into custody and placed on a 5150 after allegedly setting fire to a woman’s driveway. The 27-year-old’s psychiatric hold was extended to two weeks.
