What's Going On With Amanda Bynes? The Curious Case Of The Child Star

It seems unhinged is the new black in celeb land. First Lindsay Lohan was in court over driving offences and lying to the police before being sentenced to 90 days in rehab, then Justin Bieber went off the rails during his whistle-stop tour of the UK (a trip which saw him hospitalised, shirtless, gasmasked and scrapping with the paps) and now Amanda Bynes seems to be going a bit quackers.

Did these former child stars learn nothing from Macaulay Culkin?

Nickelodeon veteran Amanda (best known at MyDaily HQ for her stellar performance in She's The Man) has been making headlines as of late for a whole host of bizarre reasons. Her weirdo behaviour kicked off when she officially retired from acting last year and moved to New York to pursue a career in fashion.

Rumour has it she cut contact with all her friends and family claiming they were lying to the media about her. The 27-year-old recently did a Britney Spears circa 2007 and shaved her head AND was spotted smoking a suspicious looking ciggy as she strolled through Times Square.

TMZ also reported she was evicted from her home for being a "building nuisance", as neighbours complained about smelling marijuana smoke from her apartment AND back in December Amanda settled two hit-and-run cases after reaching a civil compromise with her victims, saving herself from a potential 12 months in jail.

Not only that but the Hairspray star reportedly had her credit card declined last month at a swanky salon, where she was said to have run out on the bill. Yeeesh.

Despite the gossip Amanda is adamant she's NOT in any financial trouble. She told In Touch that she's "in the Mary-Kate and Ashley type of wealth [category]," referring to the Olsen twins, former child stars themselves who are now worth an estimated $300 million.

As well as going round acting like a basket case and telling rapper Drake she wanted him to "murder" her, ahem, lady parts, Amanda has discovered a new penchant for selfies. Showing off her bleach blonde hair, swollen face and cheek bling to her Twitter followers...

We're not sure about you, but we reckon Amanda, who seems to have become familiar with the plastic surgeon's knife, could do with a cuddle *wraps arms round computer screen*.

Trout pouts big enough to trip over, foreheads so shiny you can see your reflection in them, cheeks as puffy as a hamster and skin as tight as a drum. Check out more surgery celebs...
