Amanda Bynes has made plenty of claims lately that seem to be untrue. In one of her last interviews before entering an involuntary psychiatric hold, Bynes told In Touch she was engaged. Her supposed fiancé, Caleb Pusey, denied even dating the former actress.
Pusey and Bynes met while they were in Canyon Treatment Center, Hollywood Life reported. However, “they never dated much less set a date,” TMZ said. While the 19-year-old man and 28-year-old Bynes were friends, Pusey never popped the question and hasn’t even spoken to Bynes in more than a year.
This is a very different story from what Bynes said. “I am very needy for friendship and I hate men,” Bynes told In Touch. “I want to f--- them, but I can now say I’m engaged -- get away from me.”
She also tweeted that she would be on the cover of People magazine with her future husband.
I am getting married and my boyfriend and I are going to be on the cover People magazine .

Just two days later, the troubled starlet accused her father of child abuse. Shortly after, she recanted her accusations and claimed that there was a “microchip” in her head that caused her to write those tweets.
My dad never did any of those things The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he's the one that ordered them to microchip me

Human microchips are real, but could they have actually controlled the troubled starlet’s actions? It seems highly unlikely. RFID (radio frequency identification) chips seem to be the only microchips commonly used in humans. However, they aren’t implanted in the brain; they go in a person’s hand, according to Business Insider. The chips also don’t control humans; they control computers. RFID chips are used in credit cards and key cards.
“Yes, basically you've taken an RFID access card normally stored in a pants pocket and moved it to a skin pocket,” Amal Graafstra, founder of biohacking company Dangerous Things, told the BBC.
Since posting these accusations, Bynes has been admitted to a Pasadena hospital on a 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold. As previously reported, the hold initially lasts 72 hours, but can be extended for two weeks after that, which would give her parents time to go to court and gain conservatorship. Her mother Lynn Bynes previously had a conservatorship that ended in early September, but Bynes’ parents have not stated if they intend to seek conservatorship once again.
