Amanda Bynes is continuing to put in the work to become her best self!
As you’re likely aware, the All That alum has faced multiple issues related to substance abuse and mental health over the years, and continues to battle her “stress and anxiety” demons to this day, and is currently seeking “treatment.”
The 34-year-old is currently back in a “treatment center,” her lawyer David Esquibias confirmed to Us Weekly:
“Amanda’s at a treatment center for stress and anxiety. She’s not there for drug or alcohol issues.”
According to an insider, the struggles Bynes has been facing are “ongoing,” though her fiancé, Paul Michael, is able to visit her in treatment. They shared with the outlet:
“It’s going to be an ongoing struggle for the rest of her life.”
After not posting updates for fans online for nearly three months, Bynes shared in late May on Instagram how she was “back on track and doing well” in school at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, in her relationship, and with treatment:
“Update: Getting my Bachelor’s degree from FIDM
Taking online classes, trying to get a 4.0 GPA :] 🎓
Looking forward to starting my online store in the future #goals
Spent the last 2 months in treatment. Worked on coping skills to help with my social anxiety that caused me to drop out of school months ago. Back on track and doing well!
I’m now living in transitional living and doing therapy during the week.
Still engaged to tha love of my life Paul 🌹
Hope you’re all staying safe!”
We had thought for some time there was a mini Amanda en route after the former Nickelodeon star shared a sonogram image to her Insta account in March, though her lawyer denied the pregnancy news two months later:
“Amanda is not pregnant. And she is sheltering in a safe location.”
Not long after her big announcement, Esquibias confirmed (below) that his client was “seeking treatment for ongoing mental health issues.” He shared at the time:
“Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false. We ask for privacy during this time, and for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better.”
We’re sending Amanda all the best on her continued road to recovery!!
