Amanda Bynes has been on a solo downward spiral since her move to New York — cutting off almost everyone in her life that was close to her — but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the former Nickelodeon actress has recently reconnected with her concerned parents.
"Amanda reconnected with her parents this week and it was a really positive talk on both ends," a source close to the embattled actress told Radar.
"Her parents are good people who are genuinely concerned for her. And Amanda misses them, so she finally called them up."
According to the insider, the call went so well that a reunion might soon be in store for the Bynes family.
"The last place Amanda wants to be is Los Angeles. She likes New York and doesn't want to leave," the insider revealed.
"But Amanda's parents really want to see her so they're thinking of flying out to New York as early as next week."
As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported two weeks ago, Amanda's heartbroken family believed her bizarre behavior was a "cry for help," but felt they were "powerless to do anything" because she refused their help.
But now, it seems there's hope for Amanda's parents Lynn and Rick to check in with their daughter and gauge how out of control she really is.
"Amanda is totally acting odd, but she's not crazy at all like people are making her out to be," the source told Radar.
"She's just going through a hard time in her life and maybe not coping with it like she should be."
