Amanda Bynes‘ lawyer is speaking out amid news the former child star is apparently pregnant!
As we reported on Tuesday, she and fiancé Paul Michael took to Instagram about their “baby in the making” with a shot of a sonogram. Pretty shocking news considering they just announced their engagement on Valentine’s Day!
Of course, it seems like everyone is now second-guessing the pregnancy reveal after the couple deleted the posts from their social media accounts…
Byne’s attorney David Esquibias is now speaking on her behalf, asking for privacy. While not confirming, or even outrightly addressing the big news, he shared the 33-year-old “is seeking treatment for ongoing mental health issues.”
In a statement to People, Esquibias continued:
“Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false. We ask for privacy during this time, and for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better.”
Amanda’s man touched on some of her mental health struggles after claiming their IG accounts were hacked, saying at the time about her court-ordered treatment:
“She’s not ordered to go to a hospital. She’s ordered to go to a residential treatment, which is called inpatient, but she’s not in a hospital. She is affected by trauma from her childhood. The anxiety made her drop out of school and the judge ordered her to work on that in residential treatment.”
During his chat with one outlet, Paul also spilled she was spending her days at outpatient group therapy and trauma therapy, explaining:
“She’s allowed to come and go as long as she goes to therapy. She’s doing really well, besides anxiety and trauma.”
It’s hard not to speculate what might be going on with Amanda during this time. Think we’ll ever hear more definitive updates in the form of a confirmation??
