"I Need To Tell The Truth About My Dad" - Amanda Bynes Accuses Father Of Sexual Abuse On Twitter

Amanda Bynes has taken to Twitter to accuse her father of sexual abuse.

The 28-year-old, who has been the subject of intense media speculation of late, claims that her father Rick Bynes, behaved inappropriately to her, fondling himself and asking her if she “wanted to have sex with him”.

Bynes issued a series of tweets that revealed she was seeking legal advice for a restraining order against her Dad.

The tweets read in full:

“My dad was verbally and physically abuse to me as a child. He called me ugly as a child and then asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and I did not know how to respond and I said no and then I was forced to live with my dad, which was a total nightmare.

“My dad fondled himself in front of me so many times that i started recording him on my phone in hopes of catching him saying or doing something inappropriate around me so I could get him arrested & put in jail for the rest of his perverted life.

“My mom knows that my father's literally and physically incestual towards his own daughter and the fact that she never called the police on him embarrasses me to no end.

“So, today I am meeting with a lawyer to get a restraining order against my dad. I cannot hear the sound of His incestually charged voice ever again and I'm just being honest

“I will not be manipulated or brainwashed by anyone anymore. So let me live my own life free of unhappiness and misery”[sic].

"So call me what you want but please do not call me crazy or insane because that's a joke", she concluded.

Recently Bynes received another DUI charge, was allegedly caught shoplifting at Barney’s of New York and confirmed that she is set to wed her 19-year-old partner.

Today, CCTV footage obtained by celebrity site TMZ, shows the She's The Man actress behaving erratically on the premises that she was apparently caught stealing from.

The male in the video is said to be her bodyguard. Onlookers said that Bynes was dancing and "muttering about plastic surgery".

Before the revelation about her father, Bynes took to Twitter to ask magazines to stop using "ugly" images of her and assured the public she did not need mental help.
