Los Angeles - The troubled former child star Amanda Bynes is forking out a lot of dough for mental treatment.

TMZ reported on Friday that a judge ruled that Amanda's doctors' hold can be extended up to a year, but according to sources it is unlikely that she will be held for the full period. The plan it seems to keep her for 60 days until she is stable and then release her to her mother Lynn Bynes, who is currently the Nickelodeon star's appointed conservator.

The price tag for her stay at UCLA Medical Center however is not cheap, as TMZ claims that starlet is racking up costs of $3 500 (R36 000) a day. This not only includes hospital treatment, but also daily living expenses. If Amanda was to stay there for the full duration of her one year hold, the bill would ring up to about $1.28m (R13m).

Recent Twitter activity

A tweet was posted on Amanda's account on Saturday, the first one since her hold, which left the internet buzzing:
But, according to her lawyer Tamar Arminak, this tweet was not posted by Amanda herself, stating that the Easy A actress' account was hacked and that she had no access to computers or phones at the center.

Leading up to her enforced check-in, Amanda had caused lots of stirs in the Twitter-sphere by posting negative comments about fellow celebrities, specifically targeting rapper Drake, and stating that they are "ugly".

False representation by publicist

Amanda's family and lawyer have also spoken out against publicist Jonathan Jaxson, who released statements concerning the troubled star's mental state and claims to be representing Amanda.

Arminak states that Jaxson was never hired by Amanda or her family, clearing up the confusion with Daily Mail. "We are not sure why he is commenting on Amanda's health care or representing himself as a publicist hired by her family."

Jaxson has made previous false claims about representing other celebrities, including Kim Kardashian whom he falsely represented during her divorce with Kris Humphries.
