This weekend was supposed to be Amanda Bynes’s 90s Con appearance. The young starlet’s conservatorship ended in the spring, thus this was supposed to be her first public appearance since then.
Kel Mitchell, her former co-star on “All That,” revealed why she wouldn’t be attending the fan convention honoring the decade’s pop culture by stating he’s been “praying for her.”
“It’s great to hear that she’s improving. That’s fantastic. She’s doing a lot better thanks to the prayers of a lot of people,” Mitchell said to Entertainment Tonight.
Bynes, now 36 years old, first gained fame on Nickelodeon before starring in a string of box office hits in the early 2000s. Nevertheless, she left the business in 2010.
She tweeted at the time, “I don’t enjoy acting anymore therefore I’ve quit doing it.”
Bynes was hospitalized after a public meltdown in 2013. The conservatorship of the actress was subsequently awarded to her mother and extended until 2022.
Bynes’ decade in the limelight is examined, along with her run-ins with the law and other notable events.
What Happened To Amanda Bynes?
The latest update on the former actress comes as she was found naked in Los Angeles early in the morning of March 19, 2023.
The 36-year-old had flagged down a car on Vermont Avenue and 4th Street and told the driver she was experiencing the comedown of a psychotic episode.
She also called 911 herself and was taken to a nearby police station.
Law enforcement has confirmed Bynes is being placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
This allows an adult who has been experiencing a mental health crisis to be involuntarily detained for 72 hours to carry out a psychiatric hospitalization evaluation.
She had been scheduled to attend a reunion with All That cast members but did not attend.
This comes after her conservatorship, which had been in place for nearly nine years, was ended by a judge in March 2022.
Her parents Lynn and Rick had been supportive of the decision.
David Esquibias, the lawyer handling Bynes’ case, released a statement written by his client, it read: “In the last several years, I have been working hard to improve my health so that I can live and work independently, and I will continue to prioritize my well-being in this next chapter.”
In February 2020, Bynes announced her engagement to Paul Michael.
But after some public ups and downs, on July 26, 2022, E! News reported that Bynes and Michael had broken up for good.
He reportedly wiped his social media account of all traces of her and their relationship.

According to a 2018 interview with Paper magazine, Bynes said that she had an agent before the age of seven, at which point she began her professional acting career.
The actress, who was born in 1986, established herself in the industry and became a household name via her work in movies and television.
At a time when most of her contemporaries were in middle school or high school, Bynes was filming some of her most memorable TV roles, including stints on Nickelodeon’s “All That” (1996-2002) and The WB’s “What I Like About You” (2002-2006). Bynes also hosted her own sketch comedy show on Nickelodeon called “The Amanda Show” from 1999 to 2002, when she was just 13 years old.
She also co-starred with Channing Tatum in the 2006 soccer romantic comedy “She’s the Man,” the father-daughter drama “What a Girl Wants,” and the movie musical “Hairspray” (2007) starring Zac Efron and Nikki Blonsky.
In 2010, Bynes withdrew from the spotlight. In 2010, after appearing in the film “Easy A,” she declared her retirement from acting.

What Led To The Conservatorship Of Amanda Bynes?
After a string of legal issues, a string of odd tweets, and a string of outrageous public appearances in 2013, Bynes was put under conservatorship.
Bynes’ mother, Lynn, was given interim guardianship in order to save her daughter and her fortune. In the same year, Bynes also set fire to a neighbor’s driveway, which led authorities to put her on a 5150 mental hold.
According to a 2013 article in Entertainment Weekly, Bynes was detained for reckless endangerment and unlawful possession of marijuana, and in 2012 she was jailed for driving under the influence after being suspected of several hit-and-runs. Bynes reportedly threw a bong out of her New York City apartment window in 2013.
The petition to terminate the conservatorship was submitted by the actress in February of 2022. “She feels her health has better and protection of the court is no longer required,” her lawyer David A. Esquibias told People at the time.
On March 22, 2022, a court officially ended the conservatorship.
