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.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
