After months of speculation about Amanda Bynes’ whereabouts and treatment, her mother Lynn Bynes has spoken publicly for the first time. “I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading,” Lynn told People in a statement.

Reports have placed Amanda at various treatment facilities since she was placed in her parents’ custody this summer, but Lynn went on to explain that the Bynes family had decided not to release any details on Amanda’s condition. “Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe in keeping our daughter’s situation private for now.”

Totally understandable. Let us know if you change our mind and would like to satisfy our nosy, inappropriate curiosity. We’ll be here.

Lynn ended her statement on a note of hope, saying, ”Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation.”

The former actress was hospitalized back in July for setting a fire in the driveway of a stranger’s home in Thousand Oaks, Calif. The cops investigated the former child-star-turned-Gremlin and determined she needed to be hospitalized on a 5150 hold which is an involuntary hospitalization for mental evaluation which lasts 72 hours. Her parents were granted a conservatorship over the troubled young star shortly after that.
