Amanda Bynes has reportedly threatened to sue a tabloid magazine over a story that claims she wandered around a New York tanning salon completely naked in search of goggles to wear.

The recent InTouch Weekly story cited an unnamed eyewitness who said the former Nickelodeon star seemed “totally out of it” as she reportedly walked around the main lobby before returning to a private spray-tan room.

“I’m not ‘troubled,’” Bynes told Us Weekly on Thursday as she declared her intent to sue InTouch. “I don’t get naked in public. I’m 26, a multi-millionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy.”

She said the story was completely false.


Contradicting the InTouch account, a store employee told Us that Bynes, a frequent tanning customer, was “always polite” and usually just popped in and out.

Bynes’ life has been under a bit of a microscope lately as she faces a DUI allegation, two hit-and-run charges and a couple of counts of driving with a suspended license.

But it’s comforting to know that, despite all that, she’s a still a multimillionaire.
