Amanda Bynes has been grabbing many headlines in recent months but, she insists, everything they’re writing about her in the tabs is false. She’s taking legal action against InTouch Weekly for a very recent story claiming she’s “troubled.”
The other day, the mag came out with a story saying she’d had another “episode” at a tanning salon, embarrassing herself and causing a scene by walking around clothe-less in the same room where customers were waiting their turn.
Instead of simply denying the story, Amanda is taking the case to court.
“I'm suing In Touch for printing a fake story. I'm not 'troubled. I don't get naked in public. I'm 26, a multi-millionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy,” the star says in a statement issued to Us Weekly.
She doesn’t say what she expects to get with this lawsuit, whether she’s seeking financial damages or just an apology and / or reprint.
The initial report, the mag notes, claimed that Amanda’s condition was getting worse, with insiders saying she was looking “painfully thin” and “seemed totally out of it.”
Apparently, she went in for a tan but somehow got confused in the middle of it, walked out of the booth as she was, shocking the others in the salon.
“[She] didn't seem to care that everyone saw her,” an insider was quoted as saying.
Bynes, as noted above, has grabbed many headlines in recent months, after a series of allegations of alcohol and drug use emerged, generated by several encounters with the law.
There are several videos of her apparently intoxicated getting behind the wheel of her car, but she denies she ever did that.
Amanda is now living in NYC and is “retired” from acting, focusing on her own fashion line, as per her own words.
