Amanda Bynes’ Parents Denied a Conservatorship as Her Lawyer Tries to Get Her Sprung

Amanda Bynes‘ parents went to court today, trying to prove to a judge that their daughter was a danger to herself and others and should therefore be placed under a conservatorship.

But alas, their request was denied. At least for the time being.

All this even though they submitted documents claiming Amanda is “extremely paranoid about being watched,” has “profound issues with her body image” and is “obsessed with the fact that she (and others) are ugly.”

They also brought paperwork showing Amanda is quickly burning through her bank account — $1.2 million of her $4 million fortune has apparently vanished with a quickness. She made two separate $100,000 withdrawals in the past couple months alone, which is even more alarming considering her parents think she’s homeless.

Another hearing for the conservatorship will be held on Aug. 8, which isn’t quite so bad since her 5150 psychiatric hold has been extended another two weeks.

Between now and then, the judge is requesting a few things: a one-on-one sit-down with Bynes, a recommendation from her court-appointed lawyer, and a discussion with her doctors. He also wants to review the police report detailing what happened when Amanda set fire to that stranger’s driveway.

Meanwhile, Amanda’s lawyer is trying to get the two-week extension on her psych hold voided. A judge will rule on that at a hearing later today — at the psych ward with the actress present.

UPDATE: TMZ reports Amanda’s doctors won their bid to keep her in lock-down for the next couple weeks.
