Amanda Bynes wants to fight conservatorship

AMANDA Bynes is set to appear before a judge in Los Angeles today (31.10.14) in a bid to regain control of her life after her mother, Lynn, was given legal control to make decisions on her behalf via a conservatorship earlier this week.
Amanda Bynes wants to contest her conservatorship.

The 28-year-old actress, who was released from a psychiatric treatment facility in Pasadena, California on Thursday (30.10.14) after being involuntarily committed on October 10, is planning to appear before a judge in Los Angeles today (31.10.14) in a bid to regain control of her life after her mother, Lynn, was given legal control to make decisions on her behalf earlier this week.

The 'Easy A' star slammed her mother and father, Rick Bynes, in a rant on Twitter this morning, and added: "I am going to court with my lawyer today to fight my mother and father over control of my personal life and control of my finances

"People need to hear the truth about who I really am - I need to show the judge that not only do I not need ANY help making decisions about my future"

Amanda, who allegedly dropped out of her fashion design course at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in Orange County recently, also wants to move back to New York City.

She tweeted: "I was planning on transferring to NYU, and I was never homeless, I was living in the nicest hotels until I found the right apt (sic)."

A source previously said the 'What I Like About You' star feels betrayed by her parents after they secretly arranged for her to be hospitalised again after she was accused of shoplifting and arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) last month.

The star also spent five months in a treatment facility in July 2013 when she was placed under involuntary psychiatric hold for the first time.

She was released in December and appeared to be getting her life back on track until her previous conservatorship came to an end.
