Amanda Bynes’s Conservatorship Is Over￼
A judge ruled on Tuesday that the conservatorship was “no longer required.”
“I would like to thank my fans for their love”
Amanda Bynes’ nine-year conservatorship has officially ended.
The 35 year-old requested to terminate both the conservatorship of her person and estate in court documents filed last month, and her request was granted at the Ventura County Superior Court on Tuesday morning.
In a statement shared exclusively with PEOPLE via her lawyer David A. Esquibias, the actress said: “Following today’s decision by the judge to terminate my conservatorship, I would like to thank my fans for their love and well wishes during this time.”
“I would also like to thank my lawyer and my parents for their support over the last nine years,” the former child star added.
“In the last several years, I have been working hard to improve my health so that I can live and work independently, and I will continue to prioritize my well-being in this next chapter.
“I am excited about my upcoming endeavors — including my fragrance line — and look forward to sharing more when I can.”
Bynes was placed under a conservatorship in August 2013, granting her mother Lynn Bynes legal control of her medical, personal and financial matters.
She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2014, and has been in and out of mental health facilities over the past decade.
