Amanda Bynes is still insisting that she doesn’t do drugs or smoke marijuana.
In a tweet she sent out shortly after her arrest and court appearance, the troubled star wrote: ‘I only smoke tobacco I don’t drink or do drugs. I’ve never had a bong in my life! I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot! :D.’
However, this denial isn’t going to do anything to sway the authorities about her mental situation, except that they believe she can’t be 5150’d like Britney Spears and Brooke Mueller because she has not yet been diagnosed with mental illness and has not rehabbed before, reports TMZ.
And as for the drug use, a source told RadarOnline, ‘In the last couple days leading up to Amanda’s arrest she was pretty out of control. At this point everyone knows she smokes marijuana, but it’s the combination of that weed with Ecstasy, Percocet and Roxicontin that is really making her crazy.
‘And Amanda doesn’t just do a little bit of these drugs, she does a lot and it makes her delusional and erratic, which is exactly what happened before she was arrested.’
That’s not all.
‘Amanda is completely pill’d out and mixes too many different pills with Molly [slang term for Ecstasy], which brings the high to a whole different level,’ the source continued. ‘Amanda is literally never sober. Being on all these pills has become the usual to her so she finds her behavior normal, but her reality is completely altered. When she’s high, or even coming down from high she becomes extremely paranoid.’
The good thing, at least, is that the media is not ridiculing her. Everyone is praying for the former household name to get the help she desperately needs.
