Amanda Bynes 'loses management team'

Amanda Bynes

Amanda Bynes has reportedly been dropped by her management team.

The troubled star was charged with two misdemeanour counts of hit-and-run last week, resulting in her driving privileges being temporarily revoked.

Amanda is also suspected of DUI, with speculation rife that her mental state is not healthy.

Despite telling reporters this week she's doing "amazing", Amanda has reportedly been dropped by her agent, publicist and entertainment lawyer after her erratic behaviour became too much to handle.

"All three people are telling similar stories - Bynes was a dream client for years... but she became extremely difficult in the past 12 months, some say uncontrollable," a source told US website TMZ.

The insider added that Amanda has been unreachable for the past month, despite all members of her management team making "multiple efforts" to help her.

Their decision to cut themselves off from the 26-year-old star was reportedly made after they decided they "can't help someone that doesn't want to be helped".

Amanda's spiralling situation has been compared to that of fellow former-child actress Lindsay Lohan, who spent time in jail last year after violating her probation.

The two stars have reportedly been offered free driving lessons by Goodyear.

"We're sorry to hear about your latest driving mishap... We're concerned for your safety and the safety of those who hit the road each day, and we'd like to help out any way we can," a letter from a Goodyear representative read to both girls.

Lindsay was arrested in New York City this week after "clipping" a person with her car.
