One minor subplot in the saga of former teen movie star Amanda Bynes' brief return to public life was the bizarre case of a little-known Twitter account, @PersianLA27, that some theorized was being secretly used by Bynes to defend herself. Last night the account was hacked, and the perpetrators leaked direct messages say prove it was Bynes after all.
Fresh off her latest DUI charge and apparent relapse into... something, Amanda Bynes spent an ill-advised day with an InTouch Weekly reporter this week. The resulting interview ranges from sad to alarming: Bynes told InTouch there's a microchip in her brain, and said "I want a dollar a day from every person who [is] reading my mind."
Today in an interview with In Touch, Amanda Bynes revealed that she is engaged to a 19-year-old bait shop employee named Caleb. Given what appears to be her mental state, it was easy to to assume her story was some sort of made-up fairy tale. But, believe it or not, it looks like it actually checks out.
Amanda Bynes' notorious Twitter account has been silent for months, but she appears to be back on Twitter under the guise of a "fashion designer" named Ashley Barks, a.k.a. @PersianLa27. Bynes denied having a secret account in March, after InTouch outed her as PersianLa, but "Ashley" has continued tweeting in the voice of Amanda Bynes since then.
Former teen star Amanda Bynes, known for bong-throwing and asking Drake to commit capital offenses against her vagina, briefly seemed like she had it together—she was taking her medication, attending fashion school, and staying out of the headlines. But Bynes unfortunately reentered the public eye this week when she was arrested for driving under the influence of weed and Adderall.
This is dark: "...Amanda [Bynes] is suffering from a severe mental illness 'with schizophrenic tendencies.' We're told she's aware 'there's a good Amanda and a bad Amanda.' When she talks about the bad Amanda she almost mimics an exorcism, pulling at her body as if to remove the demon, and even biting herself."
