Amanda Bynes Enters Treatment Facility, Placed On Psychiatric Hold

Published

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.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
