Amanda Bynes is in such bad shape that a judge has granted her mother temporary conservatorship over all aspects of her life, reports Entertainment Tonight. The 27-year-old actress could not even attend the hearing, because doctors at the psychiatric hospital where she is being held said she wasn't up to it, reports TMZ. They extended her psychiatric hold for 30 days.

Mom Lynn Bynes will be in charge of her daughter's medical, financial, and legal decisions at least through September. Rapper Drake, meanwhile, who has been the subject of some bizarre Bynes tweets, tells XXL magazine that they were "a little weird and disturbing," reports the LA Times. (She'd call him "hot" one day and "ugly" and sometimes ventured into the vulgar.) "It's obviously a behavioral pattern that is way bigger than me." (More Amanda Bynes stories.)
