Amanda Bynes’ parents are reportedly not planning to reinstate another conservatorship in spite of the former child star’s recent alleged episode.

A mental health team placed Bynes under a 5150 psychiatric hold Monday, after she was reportedly spotted walking naked down the street near downtown Los Angeles. Now, a source close to the family said parents Lynn and Rick are not putting their daughter under a conservatorship, but they have admitted to feeling concerned about her wellbeing, according to TMZ.

Lynn and Rick are reportedly focusing on how Bynes allegedly recognized she needed assistance and acted on her own accord to flag down a vehicle for assistance. Apparently knowing she required care, the former child star called 911 on herself, according to TMZ.

The troubled actress had also been living independently in her own home and taking cosmetology classes prior to her alleged episode, the outlet reported.

A mental health team assessed Bynes after she was brought from the streets of Los Angeles to a local police station, the outlet reported. The team deemed her in need of a 5150 psych hold, which typically lasts for 72 hours but may be amended on a case-by-case basis, according to TMZ.

The former star was placed under a conservatorship in 2013 and lived within that structure for almost a decade. She was released from the arrangement in March 2022. (RELATED: Woman Placed On Psych Hold After Breaking Into Famous Singer’s Home And Crawling Into His Bed)
