It’s nice to know that a percentage of the media’s paycheck is forwarded to covering the deeds of fallen star Amanda Bynes, but only few witness them in the flesh. Take New York Times reporter David Carr whose rainy day accident landed him in the emergency room opposite Bynes.
While the former Nickelodeon starlet was reportedly in a mental institute, the 27-year-old has generated enough headlines on her own, the most recent being an alleged pot bust and digital squabble with Rihanna, both of which she claims are fake. “I saw a bunch of mocked up tweets about me bashing Rihanna in my mentions,” she wrote in her long-winded defense against the Rih tweets. “I’m followed by so many people that someone is always mocking up fake tweets so I feel the need to address them! That’s one of the mocked up images, they took photos of me from outside and morphed them onto someone else’s body. I am allergic to marijuana and alcohol but I smoke tobacco. Why does Rihanna smoke weed and not get in trouble for it but I smoke tobacco and people think I’m on drugs? I refuse to be treated like someone I’m not, which is why I fought for myself and am suing everyone involved. I don’t need to go to rehab. There is never a drug or alcohol in my system! I’m sick of all the lies! What would you do if someone accused you of things you didn’t do and yet you still had to be in jail at all over it! I’m so offended but I am so educated that I know cops cannot illegally enter my apartment, sexually harass me, arrest me, take me to a MENTAL HOSPITAL, then lock me up for a crime I didn’t commit. I’m suing them all for this upsetting nightmare. My lawyer knows I’m a model citizen who doesn’t partake in drugs. He’s going to court this week to set the record straight again on my behalf. Thankfully I’m an educated multi-millionaire who knows better than to speak to perverted unjust cops without my lawyer.” Oh. In case Bynes-binging is your preferred poison, the Nicki Minaj knock-off wig wearer is also filing a lawsuit against (wait for it) everyone. Another Twitter tirade emerged that, condensed in Sparks notes form, reads as: I’m suing: -The NYPD for illegally entering my apartment, lying about me on drugs and lying about me messing with non-existent drugs -For being checked into a mental institute against my will and being detained overnight after getting a facial and workout “like the good girl that I am” -My apartment building for lying about me smoking in it And because we can’t make this up, the actress caps off her rant with: “I’m getting in shape and getting a nose job! I’m looking forward to a long and wonderful career as a singer/rapper!” Photo Credit: TMZ
