Raymond Hall/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Amanda Bynes' mother, Lynn Bynes, has made it a point to let everyone know that unless any information about her daughter comes from her directly, it shouldn't be taken seriously.
"Unless it's a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt," she said in a statement released to People magazine.
The mother of the troubled actress, added that she and her husband, Rick Bynes, "love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation."
The situation she was referring to was a fire her daughter, 27, allegedly set in front of a Thousand Oaks, Calif., home on July 22 that resulted in Amanda Bynes being hospitalized under a "psychiatric hold" to determine her mental well-being. The incident capped months of seemingly odd, headline-grabbing behavior from the one-time TV star.
It was reported on Monday that the Easy A actress was moved from the psychiatric wing of UCLA Medical Center to the Canyon rehab facility in Malibu, where the family attorney, Arminak, said she was making "great strides towards recovery."
In today's statement to People, Lynn Bynes said of information that has not come from Arminak, "almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading."
She added her appreciation for everyone's support for her daughter's recovery and privacy.
"Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis," she said. "We truly believe in keeping our daughter's situation private for now."
