Amanda's parents not after her money

31 July 2013, 11:23

Los Angeles - Amanda Bynes' parents don't want her money.

Lynn and Rick Bynes launched a bid to gain control over their troubled daughter's personal and financial affairs after she was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold last week for attempting to light a fire in a stranger's driveway but they have made it clear they just want her to get well and are not attempting to take her fortune.

A source told the New York Daily News: "The goal is to get her treatment, either through the courts or some other way. That's the only goal.

"Her mom has seen her (in the hospital). They're still talking."

Quick to judge

Meanwhile, Kris Jenner -who manages her reality TV star daughters' careers - praised Amanda's parents for hiring respected attorneys Tamar Arminak and Patrick Reider, and officially applying to gain legal control of the actress's personal welfare and financial affairs following her downward spiral.

She said: "This is something that, for me as a mom, makes me very sad, but happy that she's getting perhaps the help that she needs for one reason or another.

"I've always said, 'I don't know what goes on behind the scenes, I'm not there, I don't want to be the one who's quick to judge, you know, and be real negative.'

"I like to look at the glass half full. And so I'm really glad that, whatever's going on, this would be the start of a new beginning for her.'
