According to Amanda's mother Lynn Bynes, 'almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading.'
Amanda Bynes' mother Lynn has opened up about her daughter's situation. In a statement to PEOPLE, Lynn cautions fans not to believe any report which is not released by the family's attorney Tamar Arminak.
"I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading," Lynn says. "Unless it's a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt."
"Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe in keeping our daughter's situation private for now," Amanda's mother adds. She also thanks fans' support in the statement, saying that Amanda and her family need more privacy to focus on the "Easy A" actress' health.
"We appreciate everyone's heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time. Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation," she concludes.
Amanda has been receiving treatment in several facilities after she allegedly set a fire in a stranger's driveway in July. She is currently being treated at a Malibu facility.
Amanda's parents Lynn and Rick gave update on their daughter's condition in a statement which was released in September. "Currently, upon recommendation by the skilled healthcare professionals at UCLA Medical Center, Amanda is receiving specialized treatment in a private facility outside of Los Angeles. Amanda is making great strides towards recovery," the statement read.
