Worried: Amanda Bynes with her parents Rick and Lynn Bynes. Her father is believed to be in New York in a bid to see the star.

Friend: Publicist Jonathan Jaxson claims that Amanda Bynes needs urgent help to conquer a drug problem.
And her friend Jonathan said: ‘The best thing for her is to get arrested, so she gets locked up, and then at least she’s safe and she can’t take drugs. The alternative is for there to be a medical intervention and she gets some treatment and diagnosis, as something is mentally wrong.
‘She’s not in a good place. She’s a Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan rolled into one. ‘Her drug problem is far worse than Lindsay’s – and she’s in a lower place than Britney. Britney at least had money and some friends and family, Amanda doesn’t have friends and her money is locked away [by her parents]. ‘Britney shaved her head through a combination of drugs and mental issues. Amanda has cut off her hair with scissors. She did it in a moment. I don’t know what mental issue she’s got, but she needs help, she needs it diagnosed. She’s a lost soul, she’s in a very dark place.‘She talks to herself, displays schizophrenic traits. She’s not well period. If she doesn’t get help, she’s going to be the next Amy Winehouse. It will get to a point where she would take her own life.’Jonathan, Kim Kardashian’s former PR, claimed earlier this month that police busted the Hollywood star’s apartment after he called them to say she was suicidal.The former gossip columnist claims that he met Amanda a couple of months ago through mutual friends, even though Amanda yesterday denied ever meeting him.He said: ‘I met Amanda through some LA contacts a couple of months ago and we’ve been very close ever since. People asked me to help her and it got to a point where I couldn’t take it anymore, I couldn’t see her like this. She hasn’t got anyone around her, that’s why I felt duty bound to help.
Is this Amanda Bynes? The troubled star was seen trampolining in a brown wig in Buffalo, New York, on Wednesday night. She denied it - despite the fact the fitness center owner confirmed she had shown her driving licence to check in.

Fury: Amanda Bynes today wrote a tweet to Perez Hilton - accusing him of making up a story about her being in Buffalo yesterday.
‘She says that she doesn’t know me? Well, I’ve got texts and photos to prove otherwise, and now I’m getting texts and calls from people who want to get hold of Amanda, how would that happen if I didn’t know her?
Buffalo bound: Amanda Bynes was at a Buffalo gym on Wednesday night, according to the managers.
‘I’ve got a designer asking me: “Where is she? Where is she?” as they’re meant to be working together. Then I’m getting texts from a rapper saying that Amanda has promised to record with him. But she’s not able to look after herself, so these people should stop calling.’
Today, Amanda posted a link to an article in which her lawyer also stated that his client was 'fine'. Amanda also took time to tweet a picture of herself and pop star Rihanna after recently launching a scathing attack at the singer earlier in the week. Amanda, who after days of intense media spotlight following her arrest in New York City, turned her anger toward Rhianna in a series of racist and offensive remarks about the Diamonds star and her relationship with Chris Brown.
The tirade, which was quickly deleted, began with Amanda writing, '@rihanna you look so ugly tryin (sic) to be white', followed within minutes by a message blaming the singer for being assaulted by her ex-boyfriend in 2009, claiming Chris did so because Rihanna was unattractive.'Chris Brown beat you because you're not pretty enough,' Amanda tweeted.Rihanna, who is known for her own feisty temper on Twitter, addressed the remarks within minutes of their posting.'Ya see what happens when they cancel Intervention?,' the Umbrella singer wrote.
Speaking out: Amanda posted the remark on her Twitter account where she has been posting many of her bizarre ramblings
Since the incident Amanda had insisted that the Tweets were fake and on Wednesday tweeted the vintage happy snap of herself and the singer from several years ago when she was a fresh-faced young star.

'This is a mocked up image I found on the Internet that I LOVE! I love @rihanna! She's such a beauty!' she wrote in an accompanying caption. There's no denying that she's had a troubled few weeks, but according to Amanda's attorney, he also claims that she is completely 'normal'.Richard A Hutton says Bynes has seemed 'fine' in every interaction he has ever had with her, even in recent phone conversations since her arrest in New York City for reckless endangerment.The respected Pasadena DUI attorney is representing the star for a string of motor vehicle incidents since April 2012 of last year.
She's 'fine': Amanda pictured in court last week; her California DUI attorney told People Magazine the actress sounded 'fine' and 'normal'Hutton told People Magazine on Wednesday that he believes the whole case has been 'blown out of proportion.'Hutton went on to explain: 'The New York case doesn't seem like much of a case, really. I mean, come on.'Even if you believe everything you hear, it's something that amounts to virtually nothing.
'And it's my understanding there's not much evidence to back that case up.
'There's no physical evidence to back it up. I understand there's no marijuana, no pipe.'
Getting worse: Since her first arrest for DUI in early April of 2012, Bynes' behavior has become increasingly erraticAnd of his client he said: 'I think Amanda's fine. I have no problems with her whatsoever.
'She's a fine client. Every time I've talked to her, I've had nice, attorney-client normal relations with her.'His assertion of a lack of evidence follows reports that police found no marijuana or any other drugs at the scene.Photos emerged on Tuesday showing the smashed remains of what is alleged to be a bong thrown from a window by Bynes during her arrest.
The glass debris sat on a rooftop outside her apartment for days in the rain before being documented by police.
Messing around: A steady stream of photos taken of Bynes suggest she is not in the right state of mindHutton is not Bynes's attorney in the state of New York and is only representing her for a number of different charges she has accumulated since last year.The next hearing for her DUI case is set for July 18, though Hutton believes outside of required legal reasons, Bynes probably won't return to Los Angeles.Still, the string of law-breaking incidents over the past calendar year and Bynes's bizarre series of tweets in the past few weeks alone give credence to the former All That star being far from fine or normal.Since her first arrest for DUI in 2012, the Easy A actress has steadily built a wrap sheet for herself, including two separate hit and run incidents and a penalty of three years probation for driving repeatedly on a suspended license.
What happened? Bynes was an All-American sweetheart in films like What A Girl wantsHer behavior has also become increasingly erratic since she left California to pursue a fashion career, posting strange pictures of herself to Twitter, attacking celebrities in a variety of posts, claiming she needs another nose job and wearing a number of different colored wigs.
After her most recent arrest, she claimed an NYPD police officer had sexually harassed her in a rambling tweet, that he had 'slapped her vagina.'Police have dismissed Amanda's claims that she was 'touched inappropriately' during her arrest on drug charges last week.
'Internal Affairs investigators have found no evidence to corroborate Ms. Bynes' allegations,' the NYPD said in a statement.'To the contrary, a credible civilian witness who was with the officers throughout told investigators that none touched Ms. Bynes inappropriately or otherwise engaged in misconduct at any time.'
