Amanda Bynes Speaks Out Before Upcoming Conservatorship Hearing
Amanda Bynes is getting ready for her upcoming court date and has a message for her fans. The 35-year-old actress shared a video posted to social media yesterday (March 8) saying, “What’s up, Instagram? Amanda Bynes here. My court date is coming up in two weeks. I want to thank you all so much for your love and support. Peace out,” then threw up the peace sign.
In the 12-second long video, Bynes has black hair that blends to gray ends, wearing black glasses and a gold septum piercing. In the post, she also tagged E! News, People, and US Weekly.
Bynes rarely posts to Instagram, and this video message comes after she filed a petition to terminate her conservatorship last month. Per Page Six, the former child star also filed a capacity declaration, which is a requirement in California for all conservatorship cases, meaning there must be updated records about Bynes’ mental state from either a physician, psychologist or religious healing practitioner.
The hearing for Bynes’ petition is scheduled for March 22. Her attorney, David A. Esquibias, told People, “Amanda wishes to terminate her conservatorship. She believes her condition is improved and protection of the court is no longer necessary.”
