AMANDA Bynes has shared an update on her life and revealed a big business venture after her long-time conservatorship ended.
The 36-year-old’s nine-year conservatorship ended last month.
Now that Amanda has free will over her life decisions, the former actress has a lot of plans for the future.
She recently gave a rare life update while speaking to E! Newsshares: “I am pursuing my undergraduate studies at FIDM, majoring in creative industries studies with a core in beauty marketing and product development.
“I’m traveling to New York in June to work on the development of a fragrance that will be ready to launch as the holidays approach.”
A source close to the She’s the Man actress – who turned 36 on April 3 – also told the outlet that she was “very happy and enjoying her freedom this week”.
In February, Amanda filed paperwork asking to end the conservatorship.
She filed the petition just months after fellow artist Britney Spears secured an end to her own conservatorship.
At the time, page 6 reported that Amanda had requested an end to outside control over her person and estate.
The Amanda Show alum also filed documents updating her mental state with her doctor.
A hearing to discuss Amanda’s motion to end the conservatorship took place on March 22, during which the legal agreement officially ended.
Last September, Amanda’s attorney, David Esquibias, told Page Six that when the conservatorship is “no longer practical,” it could be removed.
He also gave an update on his client, saying she was “doing very well, in addition to anxiety and trauma”.
Amanda’s parents – Lynn and Rick – acted as curators for almost a decade.
After Amanda requested an end to the conservatorship, it was reported that her parents supported the decision.
In June 2019, the Easy A actress graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles.
Then in March 2020, Amanda was ordered into a mental institution by the judge in her guardianship case.
In December of the same year, the former child star was spotted for the first time in six months walking with her fiancé Paul Michael.
She wore her short, jet-black hair with bangs, as the pair smiled enjoying their day.
A QUIET LIFE
Amanda kept a low profile until she announced her unexpected engagement announcement in February 2020.
She shared a photo of her engagement ring at the time, writing, “Engaged to the love of my life.”
Amanda and Paul reportedly met while attending Alcoholics Anonymous and got engaged after just two months of dating.
She introduced her new man in a video to fans, while apologizing to those she infamously criticized on Twitter in 2013 and promising she was a year sober by then in 2020.
While Amanda fans fell in love with her during her appearances on shows such as All That and The Amanda Show, the star hasn’t acted since her role on Easy A in 2010.
