Los Angeles, Aug 11 (IANS) Actress Amanda Bynes, who has extended her US conservatorship until 2020, is happy about her decision of giving control to her parents to manage her health and medical affairs.
Her mother, Lynn, who once had conservatorship in 2014 and relinquished it weeks later, is Amanda’s conservator.
The Bynes’ family lawyer Tamar Arminak told eonline.com: “The conservatorship can end at any time prior to 2020, but both Amanda and her parents are on such good terms and happy with Amanda’s life and future, the conservatorship is the last thing on their minds.
“Finally she is surrounded by friends and companions she can trust and really open up to. She feels free to be herself, which brings her so much happiness and excitement for the future.”
Under a conservatorship, a responsible adult can be appointed to care for another if it is deemed that they cannot care for themselves.
The “She’s The Man” actress’ career was derailed six years ago due to legal troubles and mental illness, with her last acting role being in the 2010 film “Easy A”, alongside Emma Stone.
