According to TMZ via Dailymail, her parents have hindered her from using her money because they don’t believe she has recovered. As a matter of fact, it’s only a few weeks that have passed after her return from a rehab center.
Though the twenty eight year old star has been seen dining like everyone else, she does not use cash money to pay her bills. She actually carries an American Express credit card that has been loaded by her parents with gift cards ranging between $50 and $100 just to ensure she does not end up wasting any money.
Her parents, Rick and Lynn Bynes, do not interact with their daughter directly. They prefer to hand over the loaded cards to an advocate that was assigned to their daughter by the court.
It is the said lawyer that bridges the gap between the star and her parents because at the end of the day, he has to pick the cards from Rick and Lynn and present them to the actress.
Regardless of everything that Amanda has done, TMZ has reported that her parents still have a soft spot for her in their hearts. However, they do not want to live with her under the same roof because they have had enough of her nasty behavior. Her mom and dad have decided to give her some space so that she can realize that she needs them.
The star is a regular patron at Mel’s Drive-In where she likes to pop in and take a few bites. A reliable source stated that she tends to engage the restaurant’s staff in extended discussions.
At one time the actress was overheard saying that she needed to cover her face with a bandage to hide a procedure that had been carried out on her.
Once she was done with her meal, the star decided to check into a top of the range hotel in London but the management could not accept her into their facility.
It seems they knew what they would be getting themselves into by having her as their guest. On her part, she knew the credit cards did not have sufficient bucks to get a room.
Most rooms in that hotel go for $299 and above for just one night and so she removed lots of money just to prove that she was a genuine customer but the management would not let her in.
