“The parents are overjoyed, overjoyed to hear this fantastic news,” attorney Tamar Arminak said over the phone Friday. “The specialists believe she is ready to make her own life decisions and choices, and they are very proud of her.” They wholeheartedly support her choice to terminate the conservatorship.”
Since 2013, Bynes, 35, has been in the care of her parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes, due to drug addiction concerns, contentious Twitter outbursts, and legal issues.
According to court filings, Bynes has made tremendous progress in recent years and “desires to live free of any limitation.”
According to the paperwork, the former “All That” singer is presently enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles and has gotten “above average marks.” She received an associate degree with honours in Merchandise Product Development in 2018. Bynes is now earning her bachelor’s degree.
She has been living in a “organised community for women” since 2020, and last year she switched to an apartment community that gives independent living skills before the ladies live on their own.
Bynes was subjected to random toxicological screens, weekly apartment checks, and case manager check-ins while residing at the apartment complex.
According to the manager, Bynes constantly tested negative for prohibited drugs.
In a 2018 interview with Paper magazine, the actress discussed her personal challenges. She had been clean for four years at the time and praised her parents for “truly helping me get back on track.”
She admitted to being embarrassed of her prior actions and feeling lost after quitting from acting in 2010.
“I just didn’t have a purpose in life.” “I’d worked my entire life and now I was doing nothing,” she explained to the magazine. “I had a lot of free time, so I would ‘wake and bake,’ literally stoned all day.”
A lawyer for the actress said in March 2020 that she was receiving therapy for “ongoing mental health difficulties.” Two months later, Bynes posted on Instagram that she was in a much better place and that she was looking forward to receiving her FIDM degree.
Bynes’ plea to be released from custody comes three months after a judge decided in favour of terminating Britney Spears’ 13-year conservatorship after a heated legal battle with her father.
