According to TMZ Amanda’s parents and Sam Lutfi convinced her to take a car service to what she believed was a Pasadena law office, where she would meet with a lawyer about suing her parents for abuse.

The building was actually a mental facility. When she walked in the front door, she was restrained and involuntarily committed.

Sources have said, “Amanda feels utterly betrayed and says her relationship with her parents is "destroyed forever." Although she's had a poor relationship with her dad, she had warm feelings for her mom... until Friday.”

TMZ have reported that the ‘She’s The Man’ actress is showing fits of anger.

Doctors are currently medicating her, but it takes time for the meds to kick in.

The 28-year-old star became the subject of a 5150 last Friday, a California legislation used when people are deemed to be a danger to themselves or others.

And according to E! Online Amanda’s initial 72-hour hold has been extended for the next 14 days.

It’s believed she will remain there until officials decide it is safe for her to be released.

Amanda was placed on a 5150 involuntary hold last year as well and following her detainment, the star spent time in rehab and was made the subject of a conservatorship order.

Amanda’s parents Rick and Lynn Bynes were legally ordained as their daughter’s conservators following her July 2013 mental breakdown. And it’s believed they are likely to petition the courts to reinstate them as executors over a new conservatorship now that her newest 5150 has been extended for an additional two weeks.

The initial 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.

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

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

Her parents and siblings wasted no time speaking out to deny the claims and support Rick.
