Amanda Bynes' mother, Lynn, is considering dropping her bid to get a temporary conservatorship of her troubled daughter IF the actress agrees to continue psychiatric treatment in a hospital, is exclusively reporting.

On Friday, Judge Glen Reiser ordered a full investigation before ruling on the Lynn's petition to be come Amanda's conservator.

The judge determined that there was no need to grant a temporary conservatorship at this stage because Amanda will remain in a hospital for another two weeks. The judge also wants to speak to Amanda in person and set another hearing for August 9.

However, a source tells Radar, "Lynn is ready to drop the petition to become Amanda's temporary conservator, if her daughter agrees to continue to get medical treatment. Getting the conservatorship was a last-ditch effort for Lynn, in order to get Amanda medical treatment.

"It broke Lynn's heart to have to do it, and she is really leaning toward dropping it."

It's a strange twist to an already strange case and has left some wondering if Amanda will simply continue her bizarre antics if/when allowed her freedom.

Bynes was ordered to stay at the psychiatric facility for another fourteen days last week, after being placed there on a psychiatric hold after starting a fire in a driveway, and dousing her dog with gasoline.

At this point, Amanda "is agreeing to stay in treatment. She will say anything to get out and stop her mom from getting a conservatorship," the source revealed. "Lynn needs to carefully evaluate the situation before deciding anything.

"Is Amanda really in the proper state of mind to be making any decisions? Amanda has agreed to get treatment in the past, but then doesn't follow-up."
