Amanda Bynes is 'doing well' under the psychiatric hold

  • The troubled actress, Amanda Bynes had been put in a hospital under the 5150 psychiatric hold after she was accused of starting a fire in someone's driveway in Thousand Oaks. 

    A source said "Amanda seems to be doing well" and that her treatment plan was under discussion.

    This hold is used when a person is a danger to others as a result of mental disorder and Britney Spears had once been placed under the same hold in the year of 2008. 

    "The thing with Amanda is that it isn't as bizarre as it seems," the source said. "She knows when to pull it together and act normal."

    The former child star's parents haven't spoken to Bynes since she was hospitalized in Los Angeles but are now considering a conservatorship. Her parents have also refused to pay the woman whose driveway was damaged as a result of Byne's actions.
