Amanda Bynes' Parents Seek Conservatorship
Troubled star's mum and dad want to take control of her personal affairs...
The parents of troubled former child star Amanda Bynes are reported to be seeking a temporary legal conservatorship over their daughter.
A source told RadarOnline that Rick and Lynn Bynes want to take control of the former Nickelodeon actress' personal and financial affairs for her own protection.
"Rick and Lynn will appear before the judge on Friday to ask for a temporary conservatorship of their daughter, Amanda.
"Her parents will both be petitioning to be the temporary proposed conservators, and want control of her personal and financial affairs."
The source said they "are hopeful that the judge will take into consideration that she tried to start a fire in a stranger’s driveway, and burned her pants in the process.
"Her behavior is completely unpredictable, and she needs long term mental health help."
Meanwhile gossip site TMZ is reporting that the 27-year-old celeb will not be charged over the incident in which she allegedly started a fire in a driveway.
Apparently police and prosecutors view her actions as those of a mentally ill person rather than a criminal.
