Just one day after going on a Twitter rant about her “abusive father,” Amanda Bynes was checked into a treatment facility to receive some help.
The troubled star arrived to LAX on Friday and was taken to a facility in Pasadena. There was one catch, it was against the star’s will. According to TMZ, Sam Lutfi the man accused of helping lead Brittney Spears to a mental ward back in 2008, was in cahoots with Bynes’ parents to get her to the facility. Per the news outlet, Sam convinced Bynes to sue her parents.
When she arrived to LA, she was told she would be making two stops, one to a lawyers office and then to the London Hotel in Hollywood to confront her parents about the lawsuit. But instead of taking Amanda to the hotel, the driver took her to the Las Encinas hospital in Pasadena. TMZ is also reporting that she was placed on a psychiatric hold.
“Thanks Richard @famousrichard @perezhilton,” Sam tweeted. “She’s in good hands now. Many thanks to all those that helped along the way
Bynes, who claimed this week that her father “fondled himself in front of me” and “verbally and physically abuse to me as a child,” revealed on Friday that none of the allegations were true.
“My dad never did any of those things The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me,” she tweeted.
