Amanda BynesAnd Paul MichaelThey have been through a lot since they first made their relationship public in February 2020.
Fans were shocked when the actress announced her engagement to Michael. She kept her love life private so that few people knew she was actually dating anyone.
Issues surrounding Bynes’ conservatorship threatened to derail her road to the altar, though. Her mother Lynn BynesSince 2014, she has been her conservator. “Lynn feels Amanda isn’t in any capacity to make any decisions about her care or treatment,” a source told Us Weekly exclusively in February 2020. “Lynn will request that Amanda remain in a controlled environment.”
Michael broke the news that they had separated three weeks after they announced their engagement news. Amanda was then ordered to go to a mental treatment center in March 2020. She reportedly refused her check-in at the time.
Use confirmed in March 2020 that the She’s the Man star was expecting her first child with Michael. “Amanda is just barely pregnant and she is very happy,” an insider noted.
Amanda was spotted at an OBGYN’s office earlier that day. “She seemed excited,” an eyewitness told Use of her demeanor while waiting with a friend. “She was dressed casual and keeping a low profile. The lobby was pretty empty so no one bugged her.” Michael, meanwhile, was not present for the appointment.
The Amanda Show alum’s lawyer confirmed to Use in March 2020 that she was “seeking treatment” for her “ongoing mental health issues” amid her pregnancy. “Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false,” attorney David Esquibias said. “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.”
Before Michael, Simple A star was previously linked to Frankie Muniz, Taran KillamAnd Drake Bell.
