Amanda Bynes’ Family ‘Hopeful’ She’ll ‘Get The Help She Desperately Needs’ Upon Return To Los Angeles
Amanda Bynes will be landing at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday afternoon, as her family hopes she will finally agree to get the mental health help they believe she needs.
Her parents "are hopeful with Amanda's return to Los Angeles that she will get the help she desperately needs," a family source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Rick and Lynn are devastated their daughter has made shocking and false allegations that Rick sexually abused the troubled starlet.
Earlier on Friday, Rick and Lynn Bynes released an official statement to RadarOnline.com exclusively through their family lawyer, Tamar Arminak.
“I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years. Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for,” the statement reads. “He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! These allegations stem from Amanda’s mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband’s character could be slandered in such a way.”
