Amanda Bynes: 'I Have A Hard Time Staying Thin'

April 5th, 2013 8:15am EDT

Amanda Bynes Beleaguered actress Amanda Bynes has sparked fears for her health after claiming she has an eating disorder.

The Hairspray star revealed in an interview last month that she wanted to lose 20 pounds in a bid to slim down, explaining to Us Weekly, "I gain weight quickly so I need to work out constantly."

Bynes took to her page earlier this week to declare "Skinny's The F**k" - and she returned to the site late on Thursday to make a startling revelation. She told fans, "I have an eating disorder so I have a hard time staying thin."

The tweet came after she re-iterated her pledge to take legal action against media outlets, stating, "I'm suing certain blogs and magazines saying I have a mental illness! They take pictures anytime I've gained weight then write a fake story!"
Last month, Bynes threatened to sue two media outlets after editors questioned her bizarre behavior following the emergence of photos showing the star walking around New York with a shirt over her head.

Bynes' personal life has hit headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent months thanks to her driving and legal woes, and on Tuesday she failed to show up for a Los Angeles court hearing in her suspended license case. A judge granted a continuance and set a new pre-trial date for May.
