Former Nickelodeon star and A-list actress, Amanda Bynes is detained at a California psychiatric facility for treatment. She was admitted since Friday under a 72-hour involuntary psychiatric hold. She would have gotten out by now, but her stay has been extended for another two weeks.

Last Monday, E! News reported that Amanda's stay at the Las Encinas Hospital located in Pasadena, California would be extended for roughly 14 more days. Since her arrival, her only contact to the world outside has been her parents, Lynn and Rick.

Amanda's admission to the treatment facility is linked to her disturbing Twitter posts before entering the hospital. First she accused her father of sexually abusing her. "He called me ugly as a child and then asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and I did not know how to respond and I said no and then I was forced to live with my dad which was a total nightmare," she detailed. She also shared that as she lives with her dad, she's forced to watch him fondle himself. It got so bad that she wanted to have him jailed by handing a video evidence of the inappropriate gestures. Amanda Bynes said her mother knows what is happening, but chose to side with him. She also said that this is why she would be getting a restraining order against her dad.

Her mother chose to deny all these allegations through E! News and her lawyer, Tamar Arminak. She shared that the accusations have her heartbroken, especially since all of these are untrue. His husband had been the best dad for Amanda. In the process, she said that Amanda is not thinking right and needs some help.

Afterwards, Bynes recanted her statements through Twitter. "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," her Twitter post read.

Probably because of this incident, she was admitted to the treatment facility. Just last year, she was also hospitalized on a 5150 psychiatric hold after she set an elderly woman's driveway on fire.
