Amanda Bynes Accused of Trashing Hotel Room Before She Was Hospitalized
NEW YORK (KTLA) — A posh hotel in New York has accused Amanda Bynes of trashing one of its rooms, according to TMZ.
The alleged incident happened at the Ritz-Carlton days before Bynes was detained on a psychiatric hold in Ventura County.
TMZ obtained photos of the room where Bynes reportedly stayed. The pictures showed piles of garbage, ashes, and a destroyed smoke alarm.
The hotel asked the actress to leave last Thursday for smoking marijuana in the room and being rude to hotel staff, TMZ reported. However, Bynes denied the allegations.
Meantime, the actress is now being held at a psychiatric hospital in California after she was detained this week for lighting a fire outside a Thousand Oaks home, authorities said.
Immediately after the incident, Bynes parents filed a petition for legal control over her affairs, and were in court on Friday.
But a Ventura County judge delayed making a decision on the petition, saying he first wanted to speak with the actress.
Superior Court Judge Glen M. Reiser went on to say an emergency decision was not needed on the conservatorship filing because Bynes remains under a 14-day mental-health hold.
She was initially placed on a 72-hour psychiatric hold, which was extended Thursday to two weeks.
“We are deeply concerned that Amanda poses a substantial risk to herself, to others and to property based on recent events in her life,” the conservatorship petition reads.
Her parents claim Amanda was “extremely paranoid” about being “watched” when she lived in their residence, covering smoke alarms with towels, taping windows shut and covering her car’s dashboard with cardboard and tape out of fear that “cameras were watching her.”
They also believe she is spending “a substantial amount” for marijuana and other illegal substances, according to TMZ. And they say they think their daughter is “homeless” at the moment.
A new hearing was scheduled for Aug. 9, after Bynes was expected to be released from the hospital.
