Amanda Bynes ‘tested negative for illicit substances’ amid remarkable recovery – Reuters


Amanda Bynes no longer suffers from “thought disorders” and has tested negative for illicit substances.

The 35-year-old actress has made a bid to end the conservatorship she’s been under for almost nine years, and legal documents have detailed her remarkable recovery.

In a filing obtained by The Blast, the ‘She’s the Man’ actress included a ‘statement of capacity’ which was signed by her psychiatrist, who noted her transformation since being hospitalized at Psychiatry 5150 in 2014. .

The documents read: “Ms Bynes has no apparent impairment in alertness and attention, information and processing, or the ability to modulate mood and affect, and does not suffer no thought disorder.

“Ms Bynes’ psychiatrist is further of the opinion that Ms Bynes has the capacity to give informed consent to any form of medical treatment.”

Also included in the documents are her transcripts for the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), which prove that she is an exceptional student, while there are other details of her daily life.

The filing reads: “Ms. Bynes is a student at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles, California. Ms. Bynes’ FIDM transcript indicates that she consistently receives above average grades. “

Meanwhile, the former Nickelodeon star is said to have been “living in a structured women’s community since 2020” after first living in a “halfway house” where she learned “life skills”, as well as focused on her “therapeutic needs” and “worked to develop a sustainable routine”.

Last year she moved into an apartment and has since been held responsible for “ongoing random toxicology screenings, weekly apartment checks and a weekly case management session with her case manager”.

She also underwent consistent testing for illicit substances, with the results coming back negative.

The filing concludes: “Ms Bynes submits that her condition has improved and court protection is no longer required.”

It is also noted that Amanda’s mother, Lynn “does not object to the termination of this conservatorship”, and a hearing has already been set for March 23.
