After nine complicated years, actress Amanda Bynes’ conservatorship, which has overseen her personal and professional affairs has been terminated by a judge on Tuesday.
In a brief five-minute hearing, Ventura County Judge Roger Lund announced that “the conservatorship is no longer needed or required and, therefore, the petition for termination is granted.”
Bynes petitioned in February to end her guardianship
The celebrity who appeared in such films as She’s the Man, Hairspray and Easy A had confidentially filed the petition to end her conservatorship last February.
Lynne Bynes, mother of the actress, served as her guardian all these years and accepted her daughter’s request.
“Lynn is so proud of Amanda and she has made progress and looks forward to having a mother-daughter relationship with Amanda outside of the guardianship,” Tamar Arminak, on behalf of mother Bynes, told Fox News Digital.
Why does Amanda Bynes had a conservator?
Bynes was placed in her mother’s conservatorship in 2013 after the actress experienced personal problems that included her hospitalization after she allegedly started a small fire in a driveway.
As a result of those events, Bynes has received treatment at rehab centers and in 2019 graduated with an associate’s degree from California’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
A year later, on Valentine’s Day, the actress from series such as What I Like About You announced her engagement to Paul Michael.
Bynes herself had recently spoken out on social media about her guardianship, saying on Instagram “I want to thank you all so much for your love and support.”
