Nick Cannon Writes Letter to “Sister” Amanda Bynes: “I’m Here For You”
Cannon calls Bynes, who was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold last week, “someone I consider family, someone I watched grow up, and someone I genuinely feel is one of the most pleasant human beings I have had the pleasure of meeting.”
He says that he initially did not answer questions about his former “All That” co-star’s status, explaining, “Sometimes I would answer in a playful humorous manner and sometimes I would brush it off as another Pop culture topic that a reporter was trying to retrieve a sound bite for.” But Cannon continues, “After recent events of Amanda being admitted under psychiatric care and reported as 5150, I see this as no laughing matter.”
He then reaches out to Bynes directly. “So I say to my sister Amanda Bynes you’re not alone. I’m here for you. I understand. I care and I appreciate you, because that’s what family does and that’s what family is for… I’m here! Call me! Because I truly believe, the hand you’re helping up today may be the one you’re reaching for tomorrow.” Cannon also posted a picture of himself and Bynes from their “All That” days (see below).
