No longer content with lacy bra shots, Amanda Bynes upped the ante and posted topless photos to her Twitter feed on May 1 before getting caught up in some major Twitter drama with Jenny McCarthy and a questionable publicist.

It began when Amanda posted two topless photos of herself in a bathroom wearing ripped tights. Self-proclaimed publicist Jonathan Jaxson claims he received a call from Bynes soon after those shots were posted, and that she appeared to be under the influence.

“Amanda had called me and we had a private conversation, but it was clear to me that she was high on drugs," he told Radar Online. “Then, she said that she didn’t want to live anymore. I took that as that she wanted to kill herself. I freaked out.”

After the call, Jaxson immediately tweeted out to the NYPD and, curiously enough, TMZ, asking for help, saying he had a mental image of "her in a bathtub, wanting to hurt herself," before seeing the twit pics and freaking out.


Soon after, Jaxon tweeted that police had visited Bynes. Then actress Jenny McCarthy picked up on the situation, writing, "Police are at @AmandaBynes house ... I hope they get her help. Enough of this circus. She needs help.”

This morning, after the dust settled, Amanda took off her gloves faster than she takes off the rest of her clothing, tweeting two missives calling McCarthy "ugly" and "old."


Jenny later apologized, saying she was simply "looking out" for the troubled starlet. This prompted a swift turnaround from Bynes, who also apologized.


The NYPD would not confirm whether they had visited Amanda, but Jaxson claims they told him she was "fine."

Personally, we find it a bit strange that a concerned friend would tag TMZ in a message trying to alert authorities to a potential suicide. Blabbing to Radar about the whole thing doesn't sit well, either. It's also unclear as to why Amanda would be on the phone with a publicist when she has no problem drumming up her own publicity.

Still, she seems to be okay for now (or at least her version of it).
