Amanda Bynes Sued By Mental Health Facility For Thousands In Unpaid Bill
Amanda Bynes has been sued by a mental health facility claiming she owes thousands for a two-day stay earlier this year, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to court documents obtained by Radar, Bynes, 33, has been sued by Creative Care Inc., located in Woodland Hills, Calif. for not paying nearly $2,500 for inpatient treatment. The Blast was the first to report the lawsuit.
In the initial filing, the facility claimed the troubled childhood star was a patient of theirs on February 21 and 22.
"The defendant, Amanda Bynes, was a client at our dual diagnosis residential treatment center. She was at our facility for 2 days receiving inpatient," the company stated.
The facility stated in the court documents that its monthly residential treatment rate is $37,000, resulting in a $1,233.33 daily rate. The mental health facility claimed Bynes owes a total of $2,467.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Bynes confessed to Paper Magazine last year that she abused ecstasy and cocaine as a teen. She even recalled "tripping out" while on-set as a young actress.
In March, Bynes checked into a rehab facility specializing in addiction, a source confirmed to Radar. Friends close to the star claimed that as recent as April that Bynes was still stuck in a rehab facility after her latest breakdown.
According to the shocking court documents, Creative Care Inc. has yet to physically serve Bynes with papers because it is unaware of her address. The company was originally scheduled a trial date for May 31, but requested to push back the trial date to July 2.
The mental health facility claimed it made an attempt to serve Bynes with papers but that the "defendant has moved."
The facility previously asked Bynes to pay up before filing the lawsuit, it claimed in the legal documents.
Despite her alleged addiction issues, Bynes revealed in an interview last summer that she's been sober for three years and was stable and in school.
