Amanda Bynes told Jenny McCarthy to “shut the f**k up” on Twitter after Jenny reposted a tweet claiming police were at Amanda’s home.
The troubled star was angry about claims police were called to her house on Wednesday night.
The story originally circulated following a concerned tweet by Hollywood publicist Jonathan Jaxson. He is said to have alerted authorities after a troubling conversation with the actress.
“Police are at @AmandaBynes house,” Jenny wrote. “I hope they get her help. Enough of this circus. She needs help.”
Mr. Jaxson, apparently a former publicist of the star, told Radar Online he sounded the alarm after Amanda had told him: “I don’t want to live anymore.”
But Amanda denied authorities visited her home and then launched an attack on Jenny, 40, via the social network.
“I need help? What are u talking about?” she wrote on her Twitter page. “Aren’t u 50 years old? I’m 27, u look 80 compared to me! Why are you talking about me?
“You’re ugly! Police weren’t at my house old lady! Shut the f**k up! (sic)”
Amanda has become synonymous with some increasingly bizarre Twitter rants.
She recently shaved half her head and posted topless pictures of herself on the social networking site.
However, she retracted her comments after Jenny offered an apology saying:
"Sorry girl. Looking out for ya."
“Thanks! I'm sorry I offended you!” said Amanda. “You're beautiful! I was lying! I'll delete our tweets!”
