Amanda Bynes found herself in a mental hospital after she was accused of burning her pants, dousing her dog with gasoline, and starting a small fire in a driveway in New York last month. On Aug. 30, 2013, a judge ruled that her stay in the facility may last up to a year, according to TMZ.
Sources told the website that physicians have placed control of child stars’ treatment in the hands of her mother, who is currently her temporary conservator.
Nevertheless, TMZ notes that sources have stated it is not likely Bynes’ stay will last a year, but that she may be released in two months to her mother’s care.
The tabloid site also learned that she is currently headed to California’s UCLA Medical Center.
Prior to being placed in a mental facility, Bynes’ had several run ins with authorities, had been writing bizarre Twitter posts, and had changed her appearance dramatically.
