Amanda Bynes is Back on Instagram, Fighting to End Her Conservatorship

Amanda Bynes is back on Instagram with a new account and a single video thanking her fans for their support of her filing to end her conservatorship.

In the video posted on March 7, she said, “What’s up, Instagram? Amanda Bynes here. My court date is coming up in two weeks. I want to thank you all so much for your love and support. Peace out.”

The “Easy A” star, 35, also tagged several social media outlets in the post.

The conservatorship of Bynes’ medical and financial affairs began as an emergency solution to her psychiatric hospitalization after setting a driveway on fire in 2013 and has been managed by her mother, Lynn Bynes.

Since then, the “Amanda Show” breakout star has kept to herself. She began earning a bachelors from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and got engaged to Paul Michael in early 2020.

Bynes filed to terminate the conservatorship of her person and estate in February 2022, almost nine years after it began. She and her lawyers state that her condition has improved enough to no longer need the constraints.

Court updates from 2020 note that Bynes had “no apparent impairment in alertness and attention, information and processing or ability to modulate mood and affect and suffers no thought disorders.” Her September 2021 status report showed the judge continued to be satisfied with her progress.

Bynes parents and lawyer fully support ending her conservatorship.

Amanda’s attorney, David Esquibias, exclusively told US Weekly, “Everyone would love to see Amanda not under a conservatorship. I think that is the goal between myself, her mother, her father, and her care providers. Amanda would love to be unconserved. She’s expressed it over and over. The timing is not right at the moment, so she’s working toward that direction.”
