Amanda Bynes has had a crazy week.


The troubled starlet began her latest round of mysterious behavior with a Twitter tirade against her father.

Amanda Bynes posted a series of tweets claiming that her father had sexually, mentally, and physically abused her.

She claimed,

"My dad was verbally and physically abuse to me as a child. He called me ugly as a child and then asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and i did not know how to respond and I said no and then I was forced to live with my dad which was a total nightmare."

Amanda Bynes went on to say,

"My dad fondled himself in front of me so many times that i started recording him on my phone in hopes of catching him saying or doing something inappropriate around me so I could get him arrested & put in jail for the rest of his perverted life."

She continued, "My mom knows that my father's literally and physically incestual towards his own daughter and the fact that she never called the police on Him embarrasses me to no end. So, today I am meeting with a lawyer to get a restraining order against my dad."

She then deleted the tweets and posted this one.

Amanda Bynes' mother issued a statement to E! online, saying in response,

"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 accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! 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."

It was this series of tweets that lead Amanda Bynes' parents to involuntarily commit her to a mental institute under the guise of meeting with a lawyer to sue her parents.

Bynes was originally under a 72-hour hold, but that has now been extended by two weeks. According to TMZ, Amanda Bynes' parents will request, and most likely get, a new conservatorship in the meantime.

Amanda Bynes isn't too happy about her situation, but will she finally get the help she needs? Let's hope so.
