Amanda Bynes's Fall from Grace in 5 Clicks

Once a beloved teen star, her multiple run-ins with the law and erratic behavior have left fans asking, 'What went wrong?'


On July 22, the actress is hospitalized on a 72-hour involuntary psychiatric hold following a bizarre incident in which she is seen near a small fire started at the end of a driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif. After a hearing at the hospital, a judge extends her stay for two more weeks on July 25, while her parents, Rick and Lynne, apply for conservatorship on the grounds that she is paranoid and a danger to herself. "Prior to moving to New York, Amanda was extremely paranoid about being 'watched,' including at our residence," her parents wrote in court papers released Friday, adding, "[She] is obsessed with the idea that she and others are 'ugly.' She talks incessantly about cosmetic surgeries that she wants to have completed ... We are concerned that the surgeries she wants to have are dangerous and detrimental to her health."
