Amanda Bynes' mother appointed conservator over actress's affairs
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - A California judge gave Amanda Bynes' mother legal control of the troubled actress's affairs on Friday, according to court documents.
Ventura County Superior Court Judge Glen Reiser granted a temporary conservatorship motion brought by Bynes' parents, the documents said. They filed the request after the 27-year-old actress allegedly started a small fire in front of a home in the Los Angeles suburb of Thousand Oaks last month.
Ventura County Sheriff deputies put the former teenage star of Nickelodeon series All That in involuntary psychiatric care at a local hospital after the July 22 incident, and Bynes has been there ever since.
Bynes' mother, Lynn Bynes, will now have control over her financial and legal affairs. She would also gain control over Bynes' medical treatment if the actress is released from court-ordered treatment.
