After Amanda Bynes Was Officially Freed From Her Conservatorship, She Thanked Everyone For Their Support (And Is Also Turning Down Interviews)

March 23, 2022 / Posted by:

Yesterday, a judge declared that 35-year-old Amanda Bynes is now free from the conservatorship that her parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes, put her under in 2003. About a month ago, Amanda filed to end her conservatorship, and unlike Britney Spears‘ freedom from a conservatorship, Amanda’s went smoothly since nobody objected to her wish. Amanda is now taking time to herself and while she did give People a statement where she thanked everyone for their support, she reportedly isn’t going to be doing any press for a while. You can still keep a lookout for her fragrance, though! Just because she isn’t doing interviews doesn’t mean she doesn’t know how to do promo.

Amanda’s lawyer, David A. Esquibias, shared her thank you statement with People:

“Following today’s decision by the judge to terminate my conservatorship, I would like to thank my fans for their love and well wishes during this time. I would also like to thank my lawyer and my parents for their support over the last nine years. In the last several years, I have been working hard to improve my health so that I can live and work independently, and I will continue to prioritize my well-being in this next chapter. I am excited about my upcoming endeavors–including my fragrance line–and look forward to sharing more when I can.”

TMZ adds that even before Amanda’s shackles were officially unlocked, she’s been getting requests for interviews from the likes of Gayle King and even dehydrated loogie Logan Paul wants to talk to her:

The former child star’s attorney, David A. Esquibias, tells TMZ … while Amanda’s being flooded with offers, most of which came pouring in over the last 5 days, she’s not ready to talk and is laying low for a while.

Amanda’s interview suitors are a who’s who of media. There’s big interview names like Gayle and Logan, newspapers like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and Wall Street Journal, magazines like Vanity Fair and Elle, not to mention every entertainment and morning show.

We’re told producers from every above outlet are begging to sit down with Amanda in the wake of her conservatorship ending … heck, even a big Australian news program, The Project, wants a piece of her.

And it’s not just on-camera interviews, cover stories and features … Amanda’s attorney says several production companies reached out to her team about filming documentaries or a potential reality show on her life moving forward.

Amanda’s not welcoming the media circus just yet … but we’re told she’s not completely ruling out any of these opportunities in the future. For now, we’re told she’s super excited about buying furniture for her new place in L.A., where she will live with her fiancé.

Turning down an interview when your dramatic backstory is a hot topic must seem so foreign to somebody like a Kardashian. Kris Jenner must be reading about this like: “Huh?! Not exploiting trauma for financial gain?!” And hopefully, Amanda knows she’s been through enough and will ignore Logan Paul, or at the very least, only meet up with him to sell him some “very rarePokémon card.
