Amanda Bynes' Parents Fear She May Hurt Herself - Sky News

Amanda Bynes's parents are deeply concerned the troubled actress may hurt herself or others unless they can take control of her medical care and finances, court documents say.

Lynn and Rick Bynes' petition to a Los Angeles judge cited her public incidents of disturbing behaviour, including several arrests.

And it also revealed the former child star has stated fears she is being watched by smoke detectors and devices in the dashboard of her car.

The pair have asked a court to grant them legal control over her personal and financial matters.

Bynes, 27, is currently under involuntary psychiatric care in hospital after she allegedly started a small blaze with petrol in the driveway of a Los Angeles home.

She was seen with her trousers on fire at the scene last Monday and police concluded she should be detained and evaluated for her own safety.

Bynes' parents said: "We are deeply concerned that Amanda poses a substantial risk to herself, to others, and to property based on recent events in her life."

But judge Glen Reiser has postponed a ruling on their application for temporary conservatorship until August 9.

This is because the 27-year-old star will be held for the next two weeks - extended from 72 hours last Thursday - and the judge said he first wanted a personal "dialogue" with the actress.

Conservatorship is where a court declares an individual unable to take care of legal matters and appoints another individual, known as a conservator, to do so.

The former Nickelodeon actress has had several recent run-ins with police.

In December, she resolved a hit-and-run case after settling out of court with other drivers and last year she was charged with driving whilst disqualified after she was banned following two further hit-and-run cases.

In May this year she was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, reckless endangerment and attempted tampering with physical evidence after she allegedly threw a bong out of her apartment window in front of police.

She also pleaded not guilty to drink driving in a separate case.

Bynes has repeatedly turned up for her court appearances in coloured wigs, adding to concern about her activity.

She was one of the biggest actors on children's TV in the 2000s and later won four consecutive Kid's Choice Awards for best television actress, the first for her role in children's comedy show All That and the others for The Amanda Show.

Bynes, who grew up in Thousand Oaks, also appeared in the films Hairspray, Big Fat Liar and What A Girl Wants.

Before her career began to decline she also starred in several television films.

Pop singer Britney Spears was placed under conservatorship in 2008 following a personal meltdown and divorce.

Her father and lawyer remain in control of her legal and financial affairs.
