Amanda Bynes’ parents first attempt to secure a conservatorship over their troubled daughter didn’t pan out, but they’re not giving up just yet. Rick and Lynn Bynes have filed a petition requesting they be appointed Amanda’s temporary conservators until a more permanent decision can be made. “We are deeply concerned that Amanda poses a substantial risk to herself, to others and to property based on recent events in her life,” the petition reads, according to TMZ. The document points to “extremely paranoid” behavior: “She would cover smoke alarms with towels, tape windows shut and cover her car’s dashboard with cardboard and tape” because she claimed that “cameras were watching her from inside these places,” according to the document. Rick and Lynn are mostly worried about the amount of damage Amanda could do with her $3.3 million in assets. “We are informed and believe that a substantial amount of money is being used to pay for marijuana and other illegal substances, and possible plastic surgery,” the petition states.

Jennifer Aniston has learned the hard way that fiancé Justin Theroux’s fashion sense can be painful. “I have a broken toe,” she confesses to E! News. “Not to out my sweet, sweet fiancé, but he has big feet and wears these boots. He stepped on my toe. Broke it. I felt it.”

Miley Cyrus knows how to have a good time, and sometimes that involves going to strip clubs. “Have I ever been to a strip club? Yes,” Cyrus tells London’s Capital FM Breakfast radio show. “How many times? I don’t know. I haven’t kept a tally.” When asked if she’s previously “made it rain,” showering strippers with dollar bills, Cyrus offers a candid, “Yes. Am I supposed to lie? I thought I was confessing. This is therapy.”

Kristen Wiig is back on the market. The “Bridesmaids” star has reportedly split from the Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti after a year and a half of dating, according to Us Weekly. A source says the breakup was “completely amicable. They are friends.” Moretti was previously involved with Wiig’s pal Drew Barrymore for five years.

It’s getting to be that 11-year-old Maddox Jolie-Pitt can’t enjoy some simple paintball with friends without losing an iPad. Jolie-Pitt was playing with friends and a family bodyguard recently in Bellflower, Calif., when a man allegedly broke into his family’s SUV and stole two iPads and a cell phone, according to TMZ. Luckily security was notified in time and the man was arrested.
