Amanda Bynes Blasts Schizophrenia Rumors

HOLLYWOOD - MARCH 11: Actress Amanda Bynes arrives at the premiere Of Walt Disney Pictures' 'Race To Witch Mountain' on March 11, 2009 at the El Capitan Theatre, Hollywood, California.
Not long after getting back on her feet and enrolling in fashion design school, Amanda Bynes is clearing up rumors about her mental health.

The recovering star’s attorney spoke to “People” and denied reports that have continued to suggest that the “Easy A” actress is suffering from schizophrenia.

“[Amanda] has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private,” she told “People.” “However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors. For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it.”

Amanda’s attorney added that she is not taking any medications and has been marijuana-free for nine months.

As was announced when the actress left rehab, she is attending the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising with the plan to design her own clothing line in the future.

Last week, Amanda released photos of herself on spring break from FIDM and thanking fans for their birthday wishes.
