Amanda Bynes made a name for herself as a child actress in various Nickelodeon shows. She recently made multiple headlines after she was found wandering the street of Los Angeles naked and alone and was hospitalized under a psychiatric hold. However, now it appears that her stay has been extended for at least another week.

According to reports by TMZ, Bynes’ psychiatric hold has been extended to allow her to receive more professional care and focus on her recovery. TMZ also noted that Amanda is not talking to anyone close to her. It also remains unknown whether she remembers her days wandering the streets of Los Angeles alone and unclothed.

As first reported by TMZ, Bynes was placed under psychiatric hold over the weekend when she was discovered walking around Downtown L.A. It seems that Amanda may have been living on the streets for days, as her car was impounded in Long Beach on March 15th, nearly 40 miles away from her residence. Those familiar with the situation speculate that Amanda was relying on public transportation and hitchhiking to get around Los Angeles.

According to TMZ’s sources, Amanda’s car was running low on fuel when it was towed, and she did not have a mobile phone while wandering. According to those close to Amanda, this is not the first time she has left her home and walked for miles. They believe that she may have been experiencing a manic episode.


Amanda’s former fiancé, Paul Michael, has told people that he hasn’t resided with her since January. She was last seen at the Los Angeles apartment where the two once lived together.

However, her hospitalization may actually be prolonged for up to 30 days if she doesn’t soon demonstrate signs of improvement. Keep an eye on Thirsty For News to get the latest updates regarding the developing story.
