Amanda Bynes Is Missing

Amanda Bynes’ location is reportedly unknown since her release from police custody on Sunday (September 28th.) TMZ caught up with her parents, Rick and Lynn, who claimed to not know of their daughter’s whereabouts since they were not the ones who bailed her out.

Rick suggested that she went back to New York but sources tell the website that she remains in the Hollywood area. They have supposedly had very little contact with Amanda since their conservatorship ended back in June and she supposedly moved into an apartment in Orange County. Rick also told X17, “She’s 28, she does what she wants. We don’t know a thing.”

  • Some witnesses have come forward saying they saw her behaving erratically at a gym in Thousand Oaks over the summer and more recently at JFK airport in New York trying to get back to L.A.
  • Radar Online also cites a source who claims, “Amanda just stopped going to classes. Everything had been going very well for her up until the conservatorship ended. Her instructors tried to reach out to Amanda, given her history of very public breakdowns, but got no response. As a result, Amanda flunked out. It’s really sad, because Amanda had been doing so well.” The insider added, “Amanda is smoking pot again, and drinking. She stopped taking her psychiatric medications also. She is absolutely out of control, and having the conservatorship end is probably the worst thing in the world for her.”

 

Tracy Morgan Can’t Believe Walmart

Tracy Morgan has released a statement on Walmart’s response to his lawsuit over the car accident between his tour bus and one of their truck drivers back in June. As previously reported, the company argued that if Tracy was wearing his seat belt, he would not have sustained his injuries.
  • Tracy said in a statement, “After I heard what Walmart said in court, I felt I had to speak out. I can’t believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong. I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I’m fighting hard every day to get back.”
