Rocker Courtney Love hopes Amanda Bynes enjoys “a bright, healthy, successful future”.

The Hole singer Courtney Love has been following reports surrounding Bynes.

The 28-year-old former actress was put on an involuntary psychiatric hold on Friday according to TMZ.

The website claims Amanda got medical attention with the help of Sam Lutfi, previously known for his controversial relationship with Britney Spears.

But Courtney felt the need to reach out to both Sam and Amanda via social media on Saturday, and to offer her well wishes.

Sam retweeted the comment, and thanked the star for reaching out.

He also retweeted another message from Amanda’s verified Twitter account.

“you feel like a brother to me @SamLutfi i mean it. Thank you luuuuv,” the message read.

Previously, Sam assured followers Amanda was being well taken care of.

“She's in good hands now,” he tweeted on Friday. “Many thanks to all those that helped along the way #getwellAB.”

The messages followed reports Amanda was tricked into flying to Los Angeles, where Sam had allegedly been working with her parents to have her seen by doctors.

A source told the outlet Amanda thought a car service would be making its final stop at The London Hotel; however, her parents had arranged for the car to take her to a hospital in Pasadena instead.

The family’s lawyer, Tamar Arminak, was reportedly there waiting with doctors who placed her on a 5150 psychiatric hold - enacted on those deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.

The hold, which initially lasts 72 hours, could be extended for 14 days, during which time Amanda’s parents could petition to obtain a conservatorship over her affairs, according to TMZ.

Rick and Lynn Bynes previously obtained a conservatorship over the former actress after a series of concerning incidents resulting in her being put on a 5150 hold in July 2013.

The temporary guardianship order ended September 10, according to E! News. Since then, Amanda has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Los Angeles and has displayed increasingly concerning behaviour.

Earlier Friday, the star claimed she was seeking to obtain a restraining order against her father amid allegations he physically and sexually abused her.

She later backtracked, writing on Twitter that her father “never did any of those things”, while accusing him of ordering her to be microchipped.

The family denied the claims.

Sam was previously known for his relationship with Britney Spears.

The singer’s parents accused him of “recklessly medicating her” before she was taken to a psychiatric ward in 2008, according to TMZ.
