Lindsay Lohan Slams Amanda Bynes as Questions About Her Mental State Arise
More driving trouble (and mental health struggles) for Amanda Bynes. And now fellow former child star Lindsay Lohan — no stranger to legal troubles herself — is adding her two cents.
Amanda’s BMW was impounded Sunday after the What I Like About You actress, 26, was caught driving on a suspended license while allegedly smoking from a marijuana pipe. Bynes lost her license last month after being slapped with a drunk driving charge and two charges of hit-and-run.
Victor Gill of the Burbank Airport Police tells People magazine:
“I can confirm that Amanda Bynes was cited at approximately 8:20 a.m. Sunday for driving with a suspended license. Her car was impounded and she received a misdemeanor citation. She was not arrested. I believe she was by herself. This occurred on Hollywood Way, just south of the main entrance to the Bob Hope Airport.”
But that’s little consolation for La Lohan, who spent time in a Los Angeles jail over her 2007 DUI bust and a high-profile jewelry theft in 2011. Living up to her Mean Girl moniker, the troubled starlet sent out this catty tweet about Amanda’s recent dramah:
“Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?”
Ouch. That probably won’t go over so well, especially since Bynes is reportedly dealing with mental health issues. The She’s the Man star is “showing increasingly alarming signs of delusional behavior,” members of her West Hollywood gym revealed to TMZ.
One gym-goer said Amanda came to the facility last Thursday “looking dazed and began speaking with herself.”
Another, who claimed to have seen the actress dozens of times in the past few months, said she was clearly “deteriorating,” randomly stopping mid-workout and “laughing hysterically for no reason.”
TMZ even spoke to a neighbor, who recalled seeing Amanda on various occasions “having long conversations with inanimate objects.”
“Amanda is refusing to go to rehab or seek any form of psychiatric treatment or diagnosis. Amanda’s completely gone off the grid. She won’t speak with her manager, her agent, her publicist; she’s not returning anybody’s phone calls,” a close friend told Radar Online.
