Amanda Bynes' Mother Lashes Out at Media People

Lynn Bynes, the mother of troubled actress Amanda Bynes, told People magazine that her daughter "will get through this situation" and took aim at the media.

"I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading," Lynn, 66, told the publication in a statement.

She added, "Unless it's a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt."

Bynes has been hospitalized at various locations since a July incident in which she set a driveway on fire. She's now in a Malibu facility where she will stay for what People says is the "foreseeable future."

"We appreciate everyone's heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time," Lynn Bynes said. "Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation."
