After months of weird behavior–including building a fire in a neighbor's driveway–Amanda Bynes formally addressed rumors about her mental health on Wednesday. Contrary to what many sources have reported, Bynes's lawyer has told People that she doesn't have schizophrenia.
"There has been much speculation about Amanda's medical condition," her attorney Tamar Arminak tells PEOPLE exclusively. "She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental health diagnosis private."
"However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors," Arminak continues. "For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it."
The lawyer went on to note that she has never had problems with alcohol or drugs and that she hasn't touched marijuana for nine months. Says Arminak, "Amanda currently is on zero medication." Bynes is currently enrolled as a student at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Orange County with the hopes of starting her own fashion line.
Even so, she's under her mother's legal control until at least September and is living at home. An anonymous source also told People that she is seeing a therapist several times a week to work through her past problems.
