Amanda Bynes leaves psychiatric facility, slams parents on Twitter

Within hours of Amanda Bynes being released from a psychiatric facility in Pasadena, the actress on Friday took to Twitter to rant about her parents and mental state and vowed legal action to regain control of her life.

Bynes was reportedly seen by paparazzi on the Sunset Strip on Thursday evening after her release from the psychiatric facility, where she'd been on an involuntary mental health hold.


"I am going to court today with my lawyer to prove that I am more than capable of handling my personal life and finances and I am enraged," the former child star wrote on Twitter.

The social media rant is just the latest example of Bynes' odd behavior. She spent several months in mental health facilities last year after igniting a fire in a stranger's driveway in Thousand Oaks. After the incident, authorities temporarily granted her mother conservatorship of her affairs.

During her most recent Twitter rant, she again accused her father of being a sexual predator -- an accusation she also made before her latest mental health hold in Pasadena. Her parents have adamantly denied the accusations.

"I got released from the hospital that Sam Lufti [sic] and my parents arranged to send me to because my dad is humiliated by what he's done," Bynes said on Twitter on Friday.

After her involuntary commitment on Oct. 10, Bynes had recanted the accusations, saying they were caused by a microchip her father had ordered implanted in her brain.

She was initially placed on a 72-hour emergency hold and that was later extended for several weeks, and her mother has again been restored as her conservator.

Bynes insisted she was not mentally ill and that she had good grades at an Orange County design college with plans to transfer to New York University.

She also alleged her parents and Sam Lutfi -- Britney Spears' former manager who said he helped Lynn and Rick Bynes get their daughter back to the West Coast from New York City -- "are lying about stealing money from me and i cannot continue to allow them To abuse me any more!"

Within 1 1/2 hours, her tweets devolved into a few words, including, "I hate you," "I am crying" and "I am ug butt."

"I'm sorry someone just hacked my phone," she then wrote. "My dad is UGLY FOOLS."
