Bynes Hospitalized, Placed on Psych Hold

According to People, Amanda Bynes flew from New York to Los Angeles on Friday and was admitted to a Pasadena hospital and placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold for 72 hours. Her hospitalization comes after a disturbing Twitter tirade in which the actress accused her father of verbal and sexual abuse then recanted the whole thing later, writing, “My dad never did any of those things. The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me.” Bynes’ mother also denied the claims to E! News, writing through her attorney, “I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years. Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually…These allegations stem from Amanda’s mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband’s character could be slandered in such a way.”
