Amanda Bynes announces she’s suing everyone on Twitter

Just hours after In Touch Weekly released a particularly damning interview with Amanda Bynes, in which the troubled child star alleged, among other things, that a microchip had been implanted in her brain and that she wanted “a dollar a day from every person who [is] reading my mind,” Bynes used Twitter to announce that she’ll be suing In Touch—despite having allowed them to spend the day with her for the interview.

Bynes has taken a troubled turn the past few weeks, after having lain low under conservatorship of her parents in Los Angeles for the last 15 months. Cracks had begun to show earlier this summer when TMZ reported that she was expelled from L.A.’s prestigious fashion college, FIDM. Late September, she was arrested and charged with a DUI for driving under the influence of Adderall, and a week later, she announced to In Touch that she was engaged to a 19-year-old Costa Mesa, Calif., bait shop employee named Caleb.

In the last week, Bynes has been spotted around various locations in New York City, where she has been accused of shoplifting and harassed by patrons at a night club, all while she was trying to have a generally good time with friends.
