Amanda Bynes says she does NOT want to kill her family — claiming the audio TMZ posted of her saying she wanted to murder her dad and slit her mom’s wrists … was just a joke.
Bynes says, “i was obviously joking about hurting my family – i straight up don’t believe in harming a soul.”
In a tweet Saturday, she added … “I said what I said in jest & if you don’t understand that then know I’m in therapy to talk about my dad issues and that will solve my concerns with ppl invading my private life. I am one of the most thoughtful girls you’ll ever meet so don’t read into what I joke about.”
As we previously reported … members of Amanda’s family said they wanted us to post the audio — which could be a wake-up call for medical professionals to intervene and get her help.
Bynes also said she didn’t really want Drake to murder her vagina … adding, “So take what I say lightly because I am the nicest girl.”
Amanda Bynes ?and her parents are on the verge of getting sued for allegedly trashing the apartment where she’s been staying.
TMZ broke the story … Amanda was staying with 3 girls in West Hollywood … one of whom was her hair stylist. The girls say Amanda went wild at times … burning cigarette holes in the carpets, splashing blue hair dye on the carpets and porcelain sinks, and on and on.
The mother of one of the girls signed the lease, and she contacted Amanda’s parents and demanded $1,500 to repair the damage.
We know Amanda’s parents told the mother to pound sand, saying the girls knew Amanda was unstable when they allowed her to stay against the parents’ wishes, so as far as they’re concerned the girls assumed the risk.
One of the girls told us … Amanda was like 2 different people — sometimes she was sweet and quiet and then on a dime she would turn angry and rude.
Amanda Bynes is not telling the truth when she says her parents aren’t allowing her to have a roof over her head, because we’ve learned she’s had a place all along … she just doesn’t like the location.
Sources connected with the Bynes family tell us … Amanda’s parents got her a room in a Glendale hotel immediately after she was released from the psychiatric facility.
Amanda does NOT want to stay in Glendale, but her parents were firm … they will not get her a place anywhere near Hollywood or West Hollywood, because they think it spells nothing but trouble and where leeches glom onto her.
Our sources say Amanda’s parents have told her if she wants a different area they’ll find her a place, as long as it’s not Hollywood or WeHo. But that’s where Amanda wants to be and that’s why she’s been mooching off friends and crashing at their places.
We’re told her parents’ hotel package includes car services, food … the works. Amanda’s tirades that she doesn’t have money for food or lodging are simply false.
Amanda Bynes’ cry for employment has been answered — an L.A. bar is offering her a high profile bartending gig … right in the heart of the Sunset Strip.
Chad Weiner, the managing partner of State Social House in West Hollywood, tells TMZ … he’s got an apron and a bottle opener with Amanda’s name on it … all she needs to do is say yes.
TMZ broke the story … Amanda wants to live a “normal life,” and make some money — and she thinks bartending is the way to go.
Chad says his spot on the Strip is perfect for Amanda, since his staff knows her and would love to teach her the ropes. As for her schizophrenia … Chad has a pay it forward attitude — telling us he’d like to give Amanda a second chance, because he once got one when he was battling substance abuse.
Nice sentiment, but something still tells us a bar isn’t the best fit for someone in Amanda’s condition.
Amanda Bynes has a plan … she wants to sling drinks.
Sources connected to Amanda tell TMZ … she wants “a normal life,” and she believes working in a bar would achieve that goal.
Amanda says she’s well aware of the obvious impediment — she attracts so much attention it would be hard to function as a bartender.
As for why Amanda is even thinking of getting a job … she desperately needs money. She doesn’t have access to her $5.7 million fortune because of her conservatorship, and only gets between $50 and $100 a day. As for what she wants to do with the money, aside from getting an apartment, she wants plastic surgery because she thinks she’s ugly.
We know 2 people from The Canyon Treatment Center — where Amanda went for rehab — have reached out to her and offered her a place to stay.
The parents of Amanda Bynes are throwing in the towel … they’ll file legal docs in the next few days handing over the conservatorship of their daughter to someone else, and then they’re moving to Texas … TMZ has learned.
Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ … Amanda will now be under the thumb of a mental health professional who specializes in handling people with severe mental illnesses. Her parents will ask the judge to transfer conservatorship powers to that person.
We’re also told the parents have made arrangements to transfer power over financial matters to another person … presumably a money manager.
The parents are leaving California and will move to Texas to be closer to their older daughter.
Both parents are saying they know they’ve struck out with Amanda and don’t have what it takes to effectively control her. They’re hoping once someone else controls Amanda’s finances, she’ll stop lashing out at them and they can have a relationship … even though it will be long distance.
