Amanda Bynes doesn't have schizophrenia.
The troubled actress, who completed psychiatric treatment in December following a series of public outbursts, has asked her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, to shoot down rumors claiming she suffers from the mental disorder.
"There has been much speculation about Amanda's medical condition. She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private. However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors. For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it," Arminak said, speaking to People.
The attorney also claims the 28-year-old star, who chucked a marijuana bong out the window of her apartment in New York City last May, has never abused drugs or alcohol and she quit cannabis nine months ago. "She's devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She's never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she's proud to say she's been marijuana-free for the past nine months," he explained.
Amanda Bynes has returned to Twitter.
The Easy A actress, who completed three months of psychiatric treatment for both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder in December, posted her first message on the social networking site in months on Friday to tell her fans that she loves them.
Clearly eager to start afresh after enrolling in the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in California, the 27-year-old actress deleted all her old tweets and wrote, "Hi everyone! I'm busy studying at @FIDM but I want to say I love you to my fans! Xoxo Amanda."
The What I Like About You star was said to be "horrified" by crude comments she made about Drake on Twitter last year when she said she wanted the rapper to "murder my vagina," and posted dozens of positive and negative messages about him on an almost daily basis.
Chris Brown has been ordered to stay in a Miami rehab for another two months.
Doctors at the facility blame the musician's behavior on his previously undiagnosed PTSD and bipolar disorder, but they do claim that he is making improvements and becoming less impulsive.
Despite a report in which Brown said he "is happy with the program," he reportedly didn't look too happy to hear that his stay would be extended. A probation officer wrote to the court that Brown has indeed showed progressing and "[responding] well to treatment," but he additionally pointed out that the positive changes in his behavior "[have] occurred only recently."
Brown had been placed in rehab back in November after his was charged with a misdemeanor assault in Washington, D.C. - a direct violation of his probation for his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

A law enforcement source told gossip website TMZ.com that one of the "Heartbreaker" hitmaker's guards got into an argument with the paparazzo and grabbed his camera before jumping into the star's Escalade and instructing their driver to flee the scene.

Chris' friends and family, including his mother Joyce Hawkins, threw him a small homecoming party on Saturday night. "We had a low-key celebration for him. It was real quiet. A lot of hugs. A lot of thank yous. No big speeches although he said, 'Thank y'all for being there for me. Really appreciate all that. Love.'

Parker Adams, who claims the 24-year-old star broke his nose and hurled a homophobic slur at him when he tried to insert himself in a photograph that Chris was taking with two females outside the city's W Hotel in October, has filed a civil lawsuit against the "Fine China" singer, who is currently in rehab seeking treatment for anger management and is also facing misdemeanor assault charges stemming from the incident.
The alleged victim claims in new court documents, obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, that Chris went nuts on him and is suing both the singer and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, for $1 million each, as well as another $500,000 from both of them for punitive damages, to teach them a lesson. The "Forever" singer has denied any wrongdoing, claiming Parker was the aggressor and tried to force his way on to Chris' tour bus.
James Franco hopes Shia LaBeouf doesn't ruin his career in his quest to show he is an "artist."
The Spring Breakers star believes the 27-year-old actor's recent antics - which have included a silent art installation called #IAMSORRY, donning a paper bag on his head for the German premiere of Nymphomaniac and repeatedly insisting on Twitter that he is no longer famous - are part of a bid for him to "reclaim his public persona." He writes in The New York Times, "This behavior could be a sign of many things, from a nervous breakdown to mere youthful recklessness. For Mr. LaBeouf's sake I hope it is nothing serious. Indeed I hope - and, yes, I know that this idea has pretentious or just plain ridiculous overtones - that his actions are intended as a piece of performance art, one in which a young man in a very public profession tries to reclaim his public persona... I think Mr. LaBeouf's project, if it is a project, is a worthy one. I just hope that he is careful not to use up all the good will he has gained as an actor in order to show us that he is an artist."
