Actress Amanda Bynes arrives for a court hearing at Manhattan Criminal Court in New York July 9, 2013. Bynes took to Twitter this week with bombshell allegations against her father. Reuters

Amanda Bynes returned to Twitter earlier this week after maintaining a low profile on the social media platform since early spring. Besides addressing tabloid rumors regarding her mental health and love life, the troubled actress began tweeting abuse allegations against her father, Rick Bynes.

Bynes, 28, recently made headlines again after getting arrested for driving under the influence in Los Angeles on Sept. 28. She was charged with a misdemeanor DUI and released on $15,000 bail with a court date set for Oct. 21. On Wednesday the actress was allegedly caught trying to shoplift in a New York City boutique, and TMZ later posted a video of her dancing wildly in the store.

According to Radar Online, Rick Bynes has allegedly “forbid” his wife, Lynn Bynes, from flying to New York to help their daughter. The former child star’s mother is said to be concerned about her daughter’s behavior.

“Rick was opposed to the visit and thought it would be a waste of Lynn’s time and their money because there is nothing she can do to help Amanda,” a source dished. "Amanda would likely refuse to see her anyway – and that would be if Lynn could even find her."

In August 2013 Lynn Bynes was given temporary conservatorship over her daughter after Amanda reportedly started a small fire in front of a Thousand Oaks, California, home. The conservatorship allowed Lynn to take control of her daughter’s financial and legal affairs, as well as her medical treatment. At the time the former “All That” and “The Amanda Show” actress was said to be under a 5150 mental-health hold, a California statute put in place when a patient is “gravely disabled” from a “mental disorder” or “has been found mentally incompetent.”
