Amanda Bynes might be turning into the new Lindsay Lohan. She seems as if she’s headed in that direction—and is refusing efforts from others to help her.
Just days after having her drivers’ license suspended due to multiple vehicular incidents, Bynes was spotted cruising aimlessly around Los Angeles while taking hits from a pipe. Photos taken by TMZ revealed the interior of the car to be littered with evidence of marijuana use, as well as bottles, dog hair and other trash. This behavior has gotten the attention of local police that will be on the lookout for Bynes next time she takes an illegal drive around town.
Even before this latest incident, friends and relatives of the 26-year-old actress had become disturbed over her recent actions, saying Bynes is “not in touch with reality.”
One pal revealed, “Amanda is refusing to go to rehab or seek any form of psychiatric treatment or diagnosis, because it’s clear something is up with her. She has been told by her agent and her dad Rick that she has substance abuse issues and needs to get help. She’s a lost little girl right now.
“Amanda’s completely gone off the grid. She won’t speak with her manager, her agent, her publicist; she’s not returning anybody’s phone calls.”
If Bynes won’t listen to those closest to her, she could be headed for a serious crash very soon—and it may or may not be when she’s behind the wheel. If this troubled celeb refuses to seek help on her own, she’s just liable to wind up behind bars—or worse.
