Amanda Bynes’ lawyer reveals she is not pregnant
Nearly two months after Amanda Bynes shared a now-deleted ultrasound photo, her lawyer David Esquibias says the retired actress is not having a baby, per People. Back in March, Michael shared a now-deleted series of photos on Instagram which included a selfie of himself with Bynes, as well as an ultrasound with Bynes’ name on it.
“Baby in the making,” Michael captioned the post.
Shortly after the announcement, Esquibias released a statement addressing the star’s health. He also claimed that Bynes didn’t have problems with drugs or alcohol.
“Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false,” he said during his statement. “She is seeking treatment for ongoing mental health issues. We ask for privacy during this time, and for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better.”
Her lawyer revealed that Bynes was “sheltering at a safe environment” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
On March 1, Bynes celebrated a year and two months of sobriety. She shared a series of photos with two unidentified men on Instagram.
The actress sought help in January 2019 after months of public struggles that followed her decision to return to the public eye.
