Amanda Bynes surprised her Twitter followers on Sunday by once again proclaiming her love for singer, Drake, on the microblogging site.
“I love drake,” read the tweet, which followed her July 20 message that read, “drake is gorgeous.”
The recent tweet from the troubled actress comes as a shock because Bynes is currently at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center where she is undergoing treatment for mental health issues. The actress, reportedly, has no access to the Internet at the hospital, and the message was retweeted more than 20,000 times before Bynes’ attorney issued a statement declaring that her Twitter account has been hacked.
“Amanda’s Twitter account has been hacked. She is at the UCLA Medical Center with no access to phones or computers,” her attorney Tamar Arminak told Radar Online.
The former child star was placed under psychiatric hold for starting a fire in a stranger’s driveway in Thousand Oaks, Calif., back in July. Last week, a judge granted a “long-term hold” to her doctors, which means she could be hospitalized for up to 12 months.
But it is unlikely that Bynes would be held for a year, according to a TMZ source, who added that the plan is to keep Bynes in the UCLA facility for 60 days to stabilize her, before transferring her to her mother’s home.
Bynes’ mother, Lynn, is currently her temporary conservator.
Bynes is said to have made considerable progress since receiving treatment for mental health issues, and according to music producer, Daniel Herman, of Chinga Chang Records, who recently met her, Bynes is “lucid.”
“I’ve talked with Amanda a few times and she wants out. She sounded normal, lucid, chill and focused,” Herman, who is negotiating a music deal with the actress and has already offered her a $250,000 advance, told Radar Online.
“I believe Amanda can work out her issues outside of a treatment center and I’m willing do anything in my power to make that a reality…even fund it,” he added.
