Amanda Bynes denies nude Twitter bathtub pic is her after imposter goes viral
Former Hollywood star Amanda Bynes has denied that a nude bathtub pic which appeared on Twitter is anything to do with her.
The 36-year-old - best known for Noughties teen films Like She's The Man and What A Girl Wants - rebutted the claims after a shot of a pink haired woman with her backside in the air was posted on social media, along with the words: "Haters can kiss my ass!!!"
She also claimed to have no connection with the locked Twitter account which purports to be her and on which the images appeared.
Bynes' complaints about her so-called cyber imposter date back several years and she told showbiz website TMZ that "she never takes nude photographs like the one circulating the Internet."
Her attorney, Tamar Arminak, also stated that her client is not the woman on all fours in the photo, adding that her legal team has long tried without success to get the Twitter account deactivated.
Like fellow troubled star Britney Spears, Bynes also recently ended a lengthy conservatorship which had given her mother Lynn control of her personal and medical decisions - as well as her financial affairs.
It followed Bynes' arrest in 2013 for allegedly starting a fire in the driveway of a home in California, an incident which resulted in her being held for 72 hours in involuntary psychiatric care as mental health evaluations were carried out.
The ex-Nickelodeon actress, whose downward spiral includes a drink-driving arrest and a marijuana possession charge in 2013, previously claimed she'd been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
On Valentine's Day 2020 she announced her engagement to a man she'd met in her AA meetings called Paul Anthony and the couple have since had a turbulent relationship.
Last month Bynes accused him of using drugs, watching disturbing pornography and vandalising his mother's home, resulting in a 'verbal dispute' which saw the police called to their house at 2.30am, again according to TMZ.
However, after publicly claiming her fiancé had "stopped taking his medications" and that she was "afraid of what he'll do," Bynes retracted the claims and issued an apology.
"I thought Paul relapsed, but I was wrong, " she said. "He drug tested for me using a drug test kit I bought, which tested negative for all substances.
"Paul and I are staying together. I am so sorry for the confusion I caused."
