Amanda Bynes’ psychiatric hold extended: report

Amanda Bynes’ psychiatric hold has reportedly been extended for at least another week.

The actress, who was placed on hold last Sunday at 5150 after walking naked through the streets of Los Angeles, is “seriously focused on recovering” as she is still hospitalized. According to TMZ.

A source told the outlet that Bynes, 36, hasn’t spoken to anyone close to her, and it’s unclear if she remembers the days she spent wandering LA.

A lawyer for Bynes did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

‘She’s The Man’ star, previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder, likely lived ‘on the street for days’ before suffering mental break and calling police, says TMZ reported earlier this week.

A source close to Bynes told the outlet that her car was towed in Long Beach, Calif., on March 15, four days before it was found.

The vehicle was located 40 miles from her home and 15 miles from where it was found in downtown Los Angeles, and outlet sources believe she was either hitchhiking or taking public transportation.

After heading to Hollywood, Bynes was spotted in a fan’s TikTok video filmed on March 17.

“Amanda, say ‘What’s wrong?'” social media user @kaitlynhotfox said to the camera before Bynes replied, “What’s wrong?”
