Amanda Bynes: I’m Suing Tabloids For Calling Me “Insane”
Amanda Bynes is lashing out at the tabloid media for allegedly spreading “lies” about her and calling her “insane.” The actress took to Twitter late Wednesday to announce she’s suing In Touch, which has a purported interview with Bynes in its current issue.
But Bynes says she never spoke to the magazine. She also blasts In Touch for allegedly calling her “insane” — though it’s actually the tab’s sister publication, Life & Style, that proclaims her “Insane & On The Run” on its new cover (see below).
Nevertheless, Bynes writes, “Well I am suing In Touch for lying about me entirely. I am not insane and they lied about me in every way.” “They continue to write lies about me and it really hurts my feelings because they are calling me insane and I’m actually really smart,” she continues. Bynes goes on, “I finally hired the best lawyer in new york city to sue in Touch magazine because they are utterly insane and & lying to the public about me.”
The former child star also calls out another outlet. “I’m also suing Star magazine for doing the exact same thing and the true definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and Expecting different results,” writes Bynes. She adds, “So I’m laughing all the way to the bank because I will sue them all.” Bynes then declares, “I will sue any one in the media who lies about me and says I ever gave them an interview when I never gave literally any magazine a quote.”
That said, Bynes claims there is one publication she will be working with. “I am getting married and my boyfriend and I are going to be on the cover People magazine,” she tweets, adding, “because although they have made up things about me before, they will omit any error they’ve made.” Last year, Bynes accused In Touch — with whom she did speak to then — of publishing “fake” drug photos, which the magazine denied.
She also threatened to sue Us Weekly and Perez Hilton, though it’s unclear if she ever did.
In response to Bynes’ current claims against In Touch, a rep for publisher Bauer Media says, “After identifying themselves, two of our reporters spent the afternoon with Amanda Bynes on Sunday, Oct. 5. She was aware that they were from Bauer. At one point, she even discussed writing a column for the magazine.” “Every word of our account is accurate and we hope that Amanda gets the help that she needs,” says the spokesperson.
