When the She’s the Man actor reportedly dialed 911 on her own, it was decided that she needed to be put on an involuntary psychiatric hold after she was escorted to a police station.
According to a source, Bynes was getting treatment, which would probably continue over the next few days. The actor was unhurt during the psychotic episode, the insider further informed TMZ.
A person placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold should either “be freed, sign in willingly, or be put on a 5250 hold after a 72-hour period,” according to the Los Angeles Times. The 72-hour delay will probably lead to the disclosure of Bynes’ position.
The actor had been scheduled to speak in front of the audience at 90s Con on Saturday but canceled on March 18 claiming sickness.
2013 saw the appointment of a conservator for Bynes. Until a court ended the formal guardianship in March 2022, the guardianship lasted nine years.
Bynes’ petition for termination “said that she has continuously tested negative for illegal drugs, has taken care of her mental health, and that her psychiatrist has declared she has the competence to give informed permission to any sort of medical treatment,” according to a report from Sky News.
According to Sky News, the actor’s parents Lynn and Rick Bynes supported the decision to end the conservatorship.
Once the conservatorship was lifted, Bynes released a statement in which she said: “In the previous several years, I’ve worked hard to improve my health so that I can live and work freely, and I’ll continue to put my welfare first in this new phase.
“I am excited about my upcoming endeavours—including my fragrance line—and look forward to sharing more when I can.”
