Amanda ‘loopier than a rollercoaster’ Bynes is seemingly hitting new levels of extreme behaviour – and terrifying her loved ones in the process. viewers were left stunned and shocked by new TMZ reports of the latest exploits from the controversial actress.

Ginger Clam has been reporting on crazy Bynes behaviour for a looooong time. A whole new league of loopy now seems to have kicked off.

In a feature titled ‘I’d like to slit dad’s wrists’, TMZ claimed:

‘Amanda Bynes dreams of murdering her dad, slitting her mom’s wrists and burning her house down, and she attacks a friend, telling him, “You’re so gay it hurts my feelings” … and it’s all on tape.

The audio was recorded a week ago by one of Amanda’s West Hollywood roommates as they drove. It’s the first time we’ve been able to hear Amanda’s ramblings when she goes off the rails.’

It is a sad chapter in the life of a star who once had the world at her feet. Friends and family are devastated at the latest development.

Bynes appeared to reach out an olive branch to her family when she took to Twitter yesterday and claimed the whole incident was just a joke. She wrote:

‘I said what I said in jest & if you don’t understand that then know I’m in therapy to talk about my dad issues and that will solve my concerns with ppl invading my private life.’

To clarify matter she then claimed:

‘When I said I want @drake to murder my vagina did anyone think I was asking him to actually murder my vagina.’

Using this as a defence argument does not sound like the most convincing line. Although if a girl has to choose between slitting her dad’s wrists or have Drake do a drive-by on her beef curtains, she picked the most selfless route.

Perhaps Amanada’s father and Drake could release a special Christmas duet together and reveal the exact plans in the lyrics. Any money raised can go towards seeking the poor girl some serious help.
