Amanda Bynes Remains On Psychiatric Hold After Arriving At LAX Friday:

Actress Amanda Bynes was hospitalized and placed on a psychiatric hold Friday after arriving at Los Angeles International Airport.

TMZ reported that Bynes was picked up by a driver at LAX thinking she was being taken to a hotel to meet her parents and their attorney, but instead she was driven to a hospital in Pasadena, where she was placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold.

Us Weekly, citing an unnamed source, also reported the psychiatric hold.

The developments capped a strange day in which Bynes posted messages on Twitter accusing her father of abusing her as a child. But she later appeared to retract the statements, posting on Twitter that “My dad never did any of those things. The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he’s the one that ordered them to microchip me.”

Bynes, 28, was arrested Sept. 20 in Van Nuys on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs. The actress is already on probation for an earlier DUI.

Last December, Bynes completed nearly six months of rehab. She had been involuntarily hospitalized after her pants caught fire while she was setting a fire in a Thousand Oaks driveway.

Her mother — who cited her daughter’s paranoia, erratic behavior and wild spending habits as evidence that she needed professional help — was granted conservatorship following the incident. That conservatorship recently expired.

TMZ reported that Bynes’ parents may seek to have the conservatorship reinstated.

Bynes is best known for her roles on Nickelodeon’s “All That” and “The Amanda Show” and films such as “Hairspray,” “What a Girl Wants,” “Easy A,” “She’s the Man” and “Sydney White.”
