An Update on the Amanda Bynes Situation


Getty ImagesAmanda Bynes has been getting psychiatric treatment at the UCLA Medical Center for a few weeks now and that could be her home until 2015, according to the latest reports.

Apparently the star's lawyer Gerald Shargel appeared in court this morning and told a judge that she would not be fit to stand trial for up to 18 months. However, Shargel is hoping to settle the matter — the weird bong-throwing incident — so that his client doesn't have to go to trial.

While he's dealing with Bynes' legal matters, the star's mom is covering her medical and financial decisions. Her mom has now dropped a bid to be the actress' permanent conservator (like Britney Spears' dad is for her) because the extended pyschiatric hold means doctors have primary control of her care. TMZ reported this news and also claims the star's condition hasn't shown any real improvement.
