Remember that vicious Twitter fight that Amanda Bynes and Rihanna got into yesterday that involved the former referencing the latter being attacked by Chris Brown and the latter referencing the former having mental problems? Well, if Bynes is to be believed, she never sent any of those tweets. Instead, it was one of her followers who mocked up the fake comments and convinced the media to run with them.
The actress made the allegations on, of all places, Twitter. You can take a look at her rant below…
I saw a bunch of mocked up tweets about me bashing Rihanna in my mentions. I'm followed by so many people that someone is always mocking up fake tweets so I feel the need to address them! Rihanna and I met and I'm sure we'll be in a music video together one day! 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.
I haven’t the slightest idea why Bynes would denying sending any of the mean tweets to Rihanna and then accuse her of getting a free pass from the media for smoking marijuana, but in the grand scheme of issues to have with what’s been going on, I would put that wonder behind all of the following questions I have. Why did Bynes capitalize MENTAL HOSPITAL? Why did she bring up the fact that she’s a multi-millionaire? Why does she think Rihanna will want to be in a music video with her? What does Amanda actually want to be treated like? Why would she (allegedly) throw a bong out the window on the 36th floor? What happened during her psych hold?
It’s been more than a year since Bynes’ strange behavior began with an unexpected DUI arrest. At the time, her parents came out and defended her, but now, they’re apparently looking into placing her under a conservatorship. If Amanda has it her way, however, she won’t have any part of that deal.
We’ll keep you updated as Bynes’ legal case works its way through the court system. Here’s to hoping a good, long-term solution can be reached before this mess spirals further out of control.
