Amanda Bynes’ 5150 Hold Gets Extended To 30 Days (UPDATE)

August 9, 2013 / Posted by:

Amanda Bynes was supposed to go to a hearing at the courthouse today to ask the judge to free and not give her parents a temporary conservatorship, but her doctors felt like she was not well enough and ready to leave the mental hospital. Her doctors also asked for an emergency hearing to keep her in the hospital for longer, so the judge came to them. TMZ says that Amanda’s doctors asked the judge to extend the 5150 hold to 30 days, because she needs more treatment and if she leaves the hospital now, her train will probably go off the rails again and it won’t end well.

The judge heard the doctors out and co-signed their professional opinions by extending the hold for a second time to 30 days. TMZ says that shit must be serious, because the law says that judges can only okay an order like that if the doctors believe that the patient is “gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder.”

Amanda’s parents are still trying to get that temporary conservatorship, because it will last until September 30th and they want her to stay in the hospital for at least another month. If a judge makes Amanda’s parents the Daddy Spears to her Brit Brit, then they’ll work on getting a more permanent conservatorship.

UPDATE: The judge okay’d the temporary conservatorship today and made Amanda’s mom Lynn the boss of her life. Lynn now has control over Amanda’s money and her medical care.
