Amanda Bynes' Severe Mental Illness Includes 'Schizophrenic Tendencies'!!! Get The Sad Deets HERE!

| Filed under: DrugsSad SadAmanda BynesHealthMental HealthScary!

amanda bynes severe mental illness schizophrenic tendencies doctors observation restrained drug tests

Doctors are apparently already learning a lot during Amanda Bynes' psychiatric hold, but sadly the news isn't all good!

The struggling starlet was under observation all day yesterday, and docs allegedly already determined that she's suffering from a SEVERE mental illness "with schizophrenic tendencies"!!!

Oh no!! Witnesses speculated about the degrading state of her mental health for months, but this is so sad!

Apparently Amanda was lucid for about 10 hours yesterday, during which she was calm and sweet, but after that her personality took a turn for the worse! According to reports, she got totes frustrated and even "shut down."

At one point, she allegedly was so out of control that she needed to be physically restrained!!! They even separated her from her roommate because she was insulting her so badly!

So far, drug tests have apparently come back negative for everything but marijuana!

Ugh! We sincerely hope she will be OK!

Stay tuned for more information

    Remember when Britney was going through something similar? And all Perez would say is that she needs to die and stop acting crazy. He's either being a fake hypocrite now or was just looking for the negative attention back then. But either way so not cool Perez.

    C'mon Mario we know you have no consious. So get on with the relentless bashing we all know is still coming. After all you are responsible for out her illness to the surface with your constant harassment just like you did to Britney.

    Perez, now u hope she'll be ok and u suddenly care about hear? U were bad mouthing her for months!

  4. Angie says – reply to this


    I don't understand with all the "patient/doctor privacy acts", how does all her and other celebrities' personal information, get out and all over the Internet ?

  5. 5

    Did you literally cut and paste this story from another site? Yes, I think you did.

  6. 6

    Its obvious something is wrong. But who is feeding you alleged detail info perez? only a nurse would know? what happend to medical records are private?

  7. 7

    I think this information is supposed to be private, and I'm fairly certain that Amanda and her family would probably want this information to STAY private unless they personally decided to speak about it themselves. IMO trying to share this kind of information with the public is WAAAY worse than someone mocking her selfies.

  8. Celo says – reply to this


    Nice try at damage control, Perez. You should be ashamed of what you said to and about Amanda Bynes. Anyone who acted out the way she did was obviously going through something. You made a joke out of her and her condition. Not cool.

  9. Mkay says – reply to this


    Whoever released this information is guilty of violating her rights in every way. Just because she is a celebrity does not mean she should not be granted the same rights as every other citizen of this country. It is disgusting that any mental health professional would release such information and it is even more disgusting that you are repeating it. Perez, you should be ashamed of yourself. Just because you aren't calling her names does not mean you are not doing damage. Reality check.

    Re: Celo – Couldn't agree more with this, Perez and his fellow hacks were trying to cash in on Amanda's illness when they should have been helping her

    Re: Mkay – AGREED! Doctor-patient confidentiality is sacred!

    Perez, we have all been telling you to stop bullying because she is clearly mentally ill. I have been saying from the get go that she is schizophrenic. leave her alone!

  13. ? says – reply to this


    You like all of the other blogs were exploiting her.She was and should have been treated as a human first and story second.Calling her "crazy" and all of the other derogatory remarks bloggers like you made only made matters worse for her.

  14. anonymous says – reply to this


    God you guys are so fucking annoying.

  15. anonymous says – reply to this


    soon nobody will take her insults seriously because word's going to globally get out that she's a psycho. why would anybody ever get their feelings hurt from amanda bynes anyway?

  16. Jeff says – reply to this


    I'm just curious, how does the media get a celebrities or anybodies medical records? That's one of those things you can't get from anyone, but the person or a guardian. No medical establishment is allowed to under privacy laws.

  18. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: Mr. Xpose – She came back "okay" because she got treatment and medication, dumb-ass. "Mental illness" does not mean "crazy forever." Mental illness can be successfully treated. Stupidity cannot, so you're fucked.

  19. Jess says – reply to this


    You are a hypocrite of the highest degree. You made fun of this poor girl and others like her to get people to your site. You should be ashamed coming back with this bullshit now like you are innocent and feeling bad for her.

  20. csi says – reply to this


    Funny, all the people bashing Perez are the same ones clicking on this site reading up all about her mental illness. Pot meet kettle. BTW, all the people calling her Queen and egging her on are no better. Everyone knew she was sick and should've been ignoring her, yet her little tween army were feeding into all this 'ugly' talk, praising her, practically worshipping her. Everyone played a part in this so blaming a gossip site or in this case every media outlet in America is ridiculous. Grow up, and if you hate Perez and gossip so bad stop coming to HIS site??????

  21. 21

    Mario is, and always will be, pathetic. And he will be because of his hatred for people stemming from childhood.

  22. 22

    Why suddenly ”hope she will be ok” after all of that hate on you blog? She is out of her mind..

  23. 23

    I have to agree, any of sort of diagnosis and personal details should be private. Which is why it leads me to believe any of this is just that, speculation from people just wanting to cash in on the media circus. Shame on any medical professionals peaking out, they know better. This girl needs help, and as far away from media as possible at that.

  24. ms trudy says – reply to this


    My guess is that she has more going on than just schizophrenia. In any case now she has been diagnosed, she can be treated. One problem with schizophrenics is many of them stop taking their meds when they start feeling better, and the cycle starts all over. unfortunately she won't be working again anytime soon.good luck to her, it's an awful disease.

    Schizophrenic tendencies are a symptom of abusing pot. A lot of people are ignorant to the fact that pot is addictive and can cause paranoid schizophrenic tendencies in a person

  27. me says – reply to this


    Re: Angie – I wonder the same thing

  28. kiwi says – reply to this


    Schizophrenic tendencies usually occur when someone is smoking too much pot. A lot of people are ignorant to the fact that it can be addictive and side effects produce paranoid schizophrenic like symptoms in people who abuse it

  29. CB says – reply to this


    Why are you updating the whole world with GOSSIP about somebody else's health problems? Judging by the amount of time you leave it between each story id say you were excited to get some attention by reporting what you 'HEARD' about this helpless lady! You say you wish her well but your words are contradicting your actions! Writing all these fake stories about somebody else's struggles is godless shame on you

  30. 30

    I've been saying this the whole time. A lot of the reports about her "weird" actions sounded almost spot on with someone I knew with schizophrenia. I thought it was so obvious, and it seemed wrong to make fun of her. And when I personally emailed Perez, he linked an article how it's likely due to drug use. Which it's likely that she did do drugs but he doesn't know when that started. A lot of people suffering from schizophrenia start doing drugs because they are trying to self medicate.

    I hope you read this story one day and realise how nasty you can be some of the things you write about are damn right wrong and if you can't do that just remember karma is real so you need to start making yours sweeter.

  33. 33

    Whatever happened to patient confidentiality? There's a nice little lawsuit waiting to happen.

  34. Cassidy says – reply to this


    "just marijuana" can cause psychotic symptoms in people who are prone to mental health issues. Marijuana use before age 14 causes a 200% increase in likelihood of developing a psychotic illness. She likely has cannabis-induced psychosis or schizoaffective disorder, which is similar to a combination of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

  35. Michelle says – reply to this


    Re: kiwi – Exactly!!! The DSM has a diagnosis of "cannabis-induced psychosis" which can occur either during intoxication or afterward during withdrawal!

  36. Lol says – reply to this


    Re: Jason – well have a negative opinion on your own life! Who actually has the audacity to try to defend these types of stories u loser the only person who needs to grow in any way shape or form here is you buddy

    Perez is a mean ugly person that needs to look in the mirror!

    Re: billyk – they always do and when it is a flase on they never retract anything here. It's why Gossipcop always has him as a worst offender of spreading bullshit.

    Re: kiwi – seriously? People sho smoke pot laugh, eat then go sleep. Not act erratic like Amanda doe.she clearly has a severe mental illness.

    Re: shellbell – look it up. like I said people are ignorant to this fact. I didn't know the exact term but Michelle and Cassidy (thx michelle and cassidy) found it in the DSM
    cannibus induced psychosis. A very close friend of mine had it. People do go to rehab for pot. its a mood altering substance. When you abuse it it is not good for you. Like pretty much anything, In moderation it is ok. It will make you hungry sleepy and happy and some cases it is good for medicinal purposes.

    Re: Angie – This is the first thing that popped into my mind too. Who is releasing her medical information? Her drug test results? This poor girl is being victimized over and over again. Even when she's in a 'safe environment' she's not safe. My heart breaks for her. I want her to get the help she needs but maybe that's too much to ask? So sad.

  43. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Just as an FYI, this is not a patient confidentiality issue the same as if she were in a hospital. She was on a 5150 hold. This is a form of arrest. The police are obliged to make statements about the detainee in quesiton, just as they had to make public statements about, say, the joker shooter, or Zimmerman. Certainly, Amanda Bynes is not in the class, but we were (by law) given information about the sanity of those individuals, among other reports. Law enforcement is REQUIRED to do so. If she is ordered to a mental facility against her wishes, still, the public has a right to know. It's just the rules. She's not in a hospital, she's essentially in jail, and this 5150 will go on her record. Not fair, maybe, but that's the story on that.

  44. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: kiwifink – I have a pretty serious mental illness, so I know what I am talking about regarding the mj issue (I don't have schizophrenia, but it's in that ballpark). Pot can very certainly cause a psychotic break, but there are no known cases of this happening if the person in question doesn't have an illness that the pot triggers reaction — specifically, bipolar, schizophrenia, schizo-affective disorder. It's the nature of the illness when you mix it with pot, and it is only the trigger, or makes existing episodes even worse. Otherwise, pot is completely safe, safer than alcohol, and we all know that, don't we? Amanda Bynes is ill, and it's not because of pot. People have to make it so ill people "brought it on themselves," Don't blame them, don't blame pot, the blame doesn't belong on either. It's an ILLNESS.

    Re: Mr. Xpose – Release an album of what? Her so called rap? Not buying.

  46. teeter totter says – reply to this


    Re: Purplegenie – I agree with you up to a point, but the police left her at the hospital and were not likely to be advised of her prelim diagnosis (or care). EMTs could also have released this with the same caveats about the diagnosis.

  47. 47

    Re: Purplegenie – I certainly don't blame her lol. addiction is a disease. and I know it first hand. I don't know what she has I am not psychic. but it is in the DSM and I know a person who was addicted to pot was diagnosed schizophrenic is now two years sober and is completely free of any schizophrenic tendencies since he quit. I know pot is "safer" than alcohol. but it is still addictive and still can cause harm to your body when you abuse it. like I said it is the same with anything that is mind altering. there are withdrawal symptoms just like alcohol. Is ten times worse for your lungs than smoking. Everything is kosher in moderation. I am not anti-pot. Just pro education. and I am not saying I know it all. Just from personal experience

  48. Casey says – reply to this


    This is really sad news. Omg, I feel really bad for laughing at her now, poor girl. I hope they can help her! #prayforamanda

  49. 49

    do we applaud u for helping her get help.. (applause to a good friend for helping the dear girl)

    should we chalk that one up to someone else gone mental from this website…whos next gaga??

    i hope the girl gets help …

  50. 50

    Re: kiwi – what the hell kind of pot are you smoking? I know many people who smoke pot and also smoke pot myself, and have never seen anyone have schizophrenic tendencies because of it. It's not that kind of drug.

  51. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: Cassidy – Uh, there's no study, even in theory, that could POSSIBLY quantify the 14 year old pot use thing. Wow, such misinformation. Pot is not a great mix with the big three illnesses (bipolar, schizophrenia, schizo-affective disorder). But the truth is, LIFE is often not a great mix with those illnesses (I have one of the big three). But just pot, per se, is harmless. Come on, we all know that. It's less harmful than alcohol. Or cigarettes. Or self-righteousness.

  52. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: teeter totter – From the moment the police charged her with the 5150 hold, here condition, developments, etc became a matter of public record, even as the case progressed. It's maybe not fair, but it's true for anyone with a 5150 situation. It's just that the world only cares when it's Amanda or Brittney, or the like. It's an exploitation of her, but maybe this will help promote awareness of this issue as something someone can't help, and I'm hoping to see a shiny and new Amanda in a year or so ready to tell us she got help, and she's back. But it sucks she has to be a poster child without her consent. As for the reporting by the widespread media, taste and ethics should have been in order rather than what is legal for them to know, but that's just me.

    Re: Clark – Totally agree with you Clark. She sued him so he's bitter, but in light of her mental illness, he needs to show his better side. For what it's worth, I ran into Amanda in Nolita. She was, without a doubt, schizophrenic (talking to herself, in her own little world) but so are a lot of artists (Cat Power, Jean Michel Basquiat….the list is long). I think it's time to step up and be 'big' Mr. Perez. This girl's in trouble.

  54. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: kiwifink – Wow. To quote silent bob, the amount you DON'T know about this I could just about squeeze into the fucking grand canyon. I've lived a disorder in the DSM. You know nothing about it. You're just a Anti-pot for Christ chump. The DVM certainly states that any psychotropic drugs at all are contraindicated for illnesses with a potential for psychosis. That doesn't speak to pot itself. People with ulcers shouldn't drink. That doesn't mean I can't have a gin and tonic.

    Also, I think you'll find that the newest DSM (v) has a revised stance towards marijuana in general, as opposed to the DSM (iv) which is more common as a source for idiots to draw their crackpot theories.

  55. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: ms trudy – If you can use the phrase "more than JUST schizophrenia," you have ZERO experience with that illness.

  56. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: kiwifink – HER DISEASE IS NOT ADDICTION! AND NOW IT IS OFFICIAL! She has schizophrenia. Not (I can't type this without laughint) "Weed Addiction" There is no withdrawal, no addiction, no psychosis from the pot unless there is psychosis from the illness. Take your "data" to an evangelical church. They can't get enough of it.

  57. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: Michelle – The DSM also, as late as a 1990's edition, listed homosexuality as a mental illness. Just sayin. It has also revised its stance on many things, including marijuana, in its newest edition (DSM V). It is an evolving guideline, not a rigid terminal source of treatment prescriptions.

    Re: Jason – Did I say anywhere that people weren't entitled to their opinion? Of course they are. My point was for the people saying they hate Perez, threatening his baby in some cases, using homophobic slurs etc. If they hate him sooooo much why click on his site when there are hundreds of other sites updating about her every move. All they are doing is giving him more hits and making his site more popular. Doesn't make much sense to me. If hurting him is the main objective as it seems to be for a lot of commenters, then stay off his website and stop making him famous.

    poor girl, although i don't agree on the hounding she's been getting from the press she would have undoubtedly suffered alone and for longer if this hadn't have been in the press so much. Get well Amanda.

  61. kiwi says – reply to this


    Re: PurplegenieRe: Purplegenie – I think you need to go to the zoolander school for children who can't read good lol. I did not say that I am psychic but I have a friend who is clean now and all symptoms of schizophrenia are gone. I am not anti-pot. Pot has many medicinal benefits.and I am sure is a lot of fun. I know lots and lots of people who have a severe addiction to pot who have sought treatment. Everything in moderation is kosher. Anything mood altering is addictive heck gambling is addictive shopping eating….anything in abuse can cause harm. And I think it is funny that you dismiss the same DSM your psychiatrist probably diagnosed your mental illness from so that doesn't make sense. Your personal experience is just as valid as mine. Did you even Google it? I just commented so people started educating themselves and question what they know about the side effects of mj

  62. Langey says – reply to this


    Nobody uses the term 'schizophrenic' who works in Mental Health. Maybe symptoms of psychotic type illness, or features of schizophrenia, but not schizophrenic. Way to go and try and label someone. She is obviously unwell and Perez you should not be placing such labels on people in this way. Im pretty sure you would not like to be labeled. Really unfortunate.

  63. 63

    See Perez capitalize on the mental illness of Amanda Bynes HERE! Real friends don't profit from the misfortunes of pals, Mario, but the truth is that you're a friend to no one. You steal stories from other sites, you bully people mercilessly, and you'll do anything to benefit from the pain and anguish of others. You are an asshole, and the ugly kid you bought should be taken from you so he doesn't learn that your way of life is right. You are a shitty person, and will be a shitty parent; YOU are the reason some homos shouldn't be allowed to have children. You're an ignorant, ugly fucker.

  64. BobbieFisher2 says – reply to this


    For those of you who wonder about how Amanda Bynes got to this state - google "The link between Marijuana and Schizophrenia". TIME magazine did an excellent article about the link - for instance - just trying pot once increases the likelihood of developing schizophrenia by 40%. And over half of schizophrenics were major pot users in their youth. Genetics plays about 50% of whether or not you get this horrible disease - but if you smoke pot - I suggest you read that TIME article. No one talks about it - but study after study has proven it. And we all know Amanda is a BIG pot user. Poor thing, her life is ruined now. There is no cure for schizophrenia - only meds that have horrible side effects and they only control some of the symptoms. God bless her soul. She's done.

    This is completely against HIPPA laws! Medical documents are supposed to be private and confidential; whoever is leaking this information should be fired and lose their licensing. Medical treatment facilities are there to achieve health for their patients, not release information about them. She doesn't need everyone knowing her business, she needs privacy so that she can get back on the road to a healthy life.

    Re: Mr. Xpose – Mental illness is not fake. Just like stupidity. Why on EARTH would either of them want THAT kind of publicity, especially Amanda.

  67. Purplegenie says – reply to this


    Re: kiwi – Here's the thing — now you're speculating on how my psychiatrist handled my individual diagnosis. Many factors went in to his assessment. You quoted the DSM, and I told you it wasn't the last word, and was a changing resource. I get my information from professionals with credentials. Generally, "googling it" is not in that category.

  68. christina says – reply to this


    to the dumbass that thinks pot causes schizophrenic tendencies, you're stupid. It can cause paranoia, but it is NOT going to make you talk to yourself and set things on fire.

    Re: Purplegenie – Mental cases have the same protection as Health cases. HIPAA applies to every aspect of healthcare. Mind AND Body. So yes, it is a violation of her privacy

  70. Chrisa Hickey says – reply to this


    Ok - "schizophrenic tendencies" is not a medical diagnosis. There's no such thing in the DSM-IV or DSM5.

    Schizoaffective Disorder is a diagnosis. Bipolar Disorder with Psychotic Features is a diagnosis. Schizophrenia is a diagnosis.

    Please - don't add to the stigma and hype by passing off half-baked commentary as a diagnosis.

    Scizophrenia is severely debiltating, and it progressively worsens over time. I really think this is a big joke because I don't see how she could remember her lines. I really hope she isn't showing early signs of it. As to the fire, I am not privy to the details of why someone would do that. Maybe she is just trying to make headlines.

    I believe that perez is a good person and truly cares! It's just that he doesn't always write the nicest things!

    One thing I don't get is if you don't like reading what PERES posts on here WHY DO YOU COME TO THE SITE??? He didn't make this up, shes a celebrity and apparently news worthy, or you wouldn't be reading. We already know he puts a twist on how he reports things, if you don't like then get the hell off the site, or DEAL WITH IT!! HE makes millions of dollars a year doing what he does. Wasting your time insulting his ways of reporting, wont exactly change that.

    Unfortunately, a lot of people I have read about that have mental illness , including my brother try to self medicate with drugs. I wish Amanda love.

  76. julie says – reply to this


    I've seen alot of mental disorders, especially when mentally ill people don't take meds and i'm thinking bi-polar because without medication the patient can start having schizophrenia and there's even a sub-type of bi-polar/schizophrenia

  77. marie says – reply to this


    Re: shellbell – Are you a psychiatric nurse? My brother was diagnosed with the same and the psychiatric nurse in the mental health ward told us that nearly every patient was there due to psychosis caused from marijuana use….I remember one patient there…my brother told us that he smoked it everyday since he was a teenager…and even medication couldn't help that guy…he was too far gone.

  78. Cheeky boo says – reply to this


    Cheers to Perez for having this site so we can also have our say on this matter. When you smoke pot all the time for a long period, you never deal with your emotions. Then when you come off it, you end up not been able to deal with life' difficulties because you become emotionally confused. I wish Amanda the best, she is beautiful and pot made her ugly…love you Perez and love all off you. ps. we are all beautiful and ugly some time in our life.
