A judge reportedly granted Amanda Bynes’ doctors a long-term psychiatric hold on Friday.

Control over the hold has since been transferred to the actress’ mother Lynn, who — as Gossip Cop previously reported — won a temporary conservatorship earlier this month.

Bynes is currently being relocated to the UCLA Medical Center for the extended hold, which could last for up to a year.

Bynes’ mom, however, is hoping to keep the former child star in treatment for an additional 60 days, before taking her home for out-patient care, says TMZ.
