That's not what's wrong with her...
People reports that Amanda Bynes' lawyer Tamar Arminak has denied rumors that she has schizophrenia on her behalf. After she was hospitalized last July for her behavior, there had been rumors she was schizophrenic and bipolar. She recently tweeted photos of herself on April 5 appearing to be happy while on vacation with her parents in Los Cabos, Mexico.
Arminak said: "There has been much speculation about Amanda's medical condition. She asked me to dispel certain rumors. For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it. Amanda currently is on zero medication. She's devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She's never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she's proud to say she's been marijuana-free for the past nine months. Amanda is very happy studying fashion and she hopes to one day design her own line. Her family is closely involved with her day-to-day life but they try to give her as much autonomy as possible. She's doing extremely well. Her primary focus is bonding with her family and being a student."
Bynes recently enrolled as a student of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Orange County, California. She will remain under legal control from her mother until September. She lives with her parents Lynn and Rick Bynes in Los Angeles. Her mother said that they were "so proud of how far Amanda has come".
A source added: "She continues to undergo outpatient therapy several times a week. She's still working through the causes of her past bizarre behavior."
