Our feelings for Amanda Bynes have been swinging rapidly between worry, pity and bafflement. This morning we’re back at pity after learning from TMZ that the actress’ publicist, agent and lawyer have all dropped her as a client in recent weeks. Well, that actually explains why no one stopped her from driving without a license, locking herself in a dressing room for two hours, smoking pot in a garage, talking to herself at the gym, etc., etc.
Sources told the gossip site that Bynes management team had tried to reach out to her but haven’t been able to contact her for the past month, so they finally gave up. This kind of makes sense in relation to her statement to People earlier this week that she’s really and truly retiring from acting — but if she is also going into fashion, as she said, she probably still needs those people, right?
We’re really hoping the lawyer that quit isn’t the same one who’s supposed to represent her in court today, when she’s scheduled to face a judge for her April hit-and-run charge.
