In her latest of strange New York antics, she’s been seen sporting a raggedy, platinum blonde weave and has opened up about why she’s wearing the less-than-natural mop on her head.
The Hollywood actress has been getting slammed lately for bizarre appearance, and the former Nickelodeon star took to her Twitter account to defend herself. She’s upset with bloggers like Perez Hilton and celebrity news sites such as E News for picking out the most unflattering photos of her and posting them.
The 27-year-old wrote on Twitter: “please post my pics anytime! I had to shave my head because of hair damage from someone @ John Barrett so I'm not loving my paparazzi pics for a few years! I have extensions but you can see them!”
For the past week Bynes has been threatening to sue anyone who writes lies about her, namely Perez Hilton, and has continually said that if people are going to post stories about her, she wants them to pick ones from her Twitter account.
The stress has been getting to the actress, who claims that she no longer talks to her parents. On Wednesday she wrote on her mini-blog account: “I don't speak to my parents anymore, they don't talk to reporters on my behalf. Don't believe anything you read about me unless I tweet it.”
Bynes even lashed out at her pals:
"My friends don't speak on my behalf either. Please don't read anything about me needing help. That offends me. Follow me on twitter!” she posted.
The “Easy A” star has said numerous times she has an eating disorder, but has also made statements saying she doesn’t need help.
Kim Kardashian recently praised Bynes for her wacky image on “Chelsea Lately,” saying she thought Bynes looked fabulous. But according to a source who spoke to Perez Hilton, her parents were not happy with Kardashian’s comments toward their daughter.
“Amanda’s parents hope that people, including Kim, would show empathy towards their daughter at this time," the source said. "Even if Kim was joking about Amanda’s appearance, it really isn’t funny. Amanda is in trouble and she doesn’t need to be a punch line in a joke."
