Bynes’ parents want to take control of her money, affairs

UNITED STATES - Former Disney actress Amanda Bynes, 27, was detained on Monday night for a mental health evaluation after she had accidentally set her pants on fire, according to the Los Angeles Times.

This comes after drug charges against Bynes in New York and a series of charges in Los Angeles. E! Online reported that her parents, Lynn and Rick Bynes, are requesting that a temporary conservatorship be established so that they can control their daughter's financial and personal affairs.

She won't be the first star to have her parents control her affairs. Britney Spears' parents obtained a conservatorship in 2008 after the pop star displayed erratic behaviour, including shaving her head in a salon.
