The 27-year-old former Nickelodeon starlet began to make negative headlines in recent months, since 2012 spring when she was caught for driving under the influence. She once walked around the tanning salon uncovered and refused to get dressed.
Most recently, Amanda had her apartment raided by police, and was later evicted from her Manhattan apartment. Bynes was arrested for reckless endangerment, tampering with evidence and criminal possession of marijuana.
Bynes' meltdown does not come as a big surprise, as many Hollywood child stars live their teens and twenties surrounded by troubles and relationship woes.
She has been on TV screens since seven years old, and is reportedly using drugs and alcohol heavily and also has an eating disorder.
"It's a lot of pressure to be constantly under the limelight and being pulled into a bunch of different directions. Then again when some of them don't get the lime light, for example, Amanda Bynes, they can turn nuts to try and get it again," a Youth Coordinator for YMCA in Staten Island, N.Y. told The Christian Post.
"I believe that many who pursue careers in any performance arts are inspired by the attention and the applause they receive. For some this starts at a very young age. Unfortunately there is never enough attention, because this becomes their god," Pastor Tim McIntyre of Oasis Christian Center told The Christian Post.
"They act out to continue to draw attention to their lives. I've always been amazed at how some celebrities even give their kids the weirdest names. I believe this is also for the sake of drawing more attention to themselves. They think its 'artistic' but I think its a cry for more attention."
Dr. Keith Ablow took his opinions to Fox News, and said that the reality is too much for Bynes to handle, since she grew up all her life "acting" for career.
"Stage parents often defend selling their kids out to the entertainment industry. They claim it comes from an early recognition of their children's true dreams and their respect for their ambitions," Dr. Ablow said.
"The decision to force kids to attend auditions, act in commercials, movies and televisions shows is always rooted in the parents' own narcissistic needs and their focus on themselves, to the exclusion of their sons and daughters ... Bynes' parents treated her like a possession, not a person, like a commodity, not a child, and that is psychological poison."
The troubled actress is planning to file a lawsuit against her apartment complex and the NYPD, claiming that she was mistakenly arrested.
"For once and for all, this is the last thing I'll say about the mistaken arrest. I'm suing NYPD for illegally entering my apartment, lying about drugs on me and lying about me tampering with non existent drug paraphernalia, then I'm suing for being put into a mental hospital against my will, then locked up overnight for coming home after a facial and working out with my trainer like the good girl that I am," Bynes tweeted.
