In Amanda Bynes news, photos of the trashed Ritz-Carlton hotel room where the actress resided before she was evicted open another sad window into her current state — and may back up recent reports that the former child star is suffering from signs of schizophrenia.
The photos of Amanda Bynes' hotel room show signs of a life in chaos. Surfaces are littered with spent ashes and rolling papers, bringing to mind Ritz-Cartlon staff's claims that the actress was constantly smoking weed in her room. The smoke alarm in the room has been destroyed, and garbage is strewn about in piles. A scattered assortment of cosmetics surrounds the sink.
Ritz-Carlton kicked Bynes out of for her constant weed-smoking and for being incredibly rude to hotel staff. In what has become an unfortunate trademark of hers, Bynes reportedly called one female desk clerk "ugly" and offered the services of her own plastic surgeon, bringing the young woman to tears. Homeless again, Bynes cabbed it from New York City to Los Angeles.
In L.A., Bynes wandered aimlessly in her ratted blonde wig and sunglasses through the local shops before getting into more trouble. She was booted from the property of an elderly care community where she said she was trying to visit a relative. Staff there thought she appeared drunk. Soon after that, Bynes was found setting fire to a stranger's driveway with a flaming rag placed atop a gas can, accidentally soaking her Pomeranian dog with gasoline in the process.
Police had Bynes committed to a psychiatric ward for mental evaluation, and there she remains on an extended 5150 hold. Amid reports that she is showing signs of schizophrenia, her parents are fighting to secure a conservatorship to prevent the former child star from doing any further damage.
Amanda Bynes' parents have added a few more details to the ever more disturbing story, casting sad light on the destroyed smoke alarm in the hotel room pictures. Bynes, they say, has a history of dismantling smoke alarms because she thinks they're watching her.
In the Ritz, Bynes ran up a $9,000 bill over the course of nine days, but that doesn't count the bills hinted at in the photos. Sources at the Ritz told TMZ they're still adding up the cost of the damage Bynes caused to the hotel room.
