Amanda Bynes Splits From Fiancé 3 Weeks After Getting Engaged

March 8, 2020

It wasn’t meant to be.

Three weeks after announcing their engagement, Amanda Bynes and fiancé Paul Michael have called it quits. The former groom-to-be confirmed the demise of the couple’s relationship.

“We did,” he told In Touch. “I love her though, she’s my best friend.”

The feelings may not be mutual as Michael’s statement comes after Bynes deleted all photos of him from her Instagram account.

Despite the digital erasure, the “Hairspray” actress is reportedly heartbroken over the break-up.

“Amanda is really upset about it and not taking it well at all,” a source told Us Weekly.

Furthemore, it appears Bynes’ conservatorship played a part in the couple’s split.

“Paul realized the relationship just couldn’t go forward because of the obstacles of the conservatorship and Amanda must live at a sober living facility,” the magazine’s source added.

Bynes' mother, Lynn, has been her conservator since 2014 following several tumultuous years that found the former child star struggling with addiction and depression and going in and out of mental health facilities.

It had been reported that if Lynn didn’t consent to the marriage, Bynes and Michael would not be able to walk down the aisle.

Bynes attempted to take charge of the situation last month by addressing the conservatorship in a since deleted Instagram post.

“Today I want to talk about a controversial topic, my conservatorship case,” she wrote. “I have been going to a treatment center that charges $5,200 a month. There’s no reason why I shouldn’t go to a therapist who takes my insurance for $5,000 less a month. This is why I’ve asked to see the judge next week regarding this conservatorship issue.”

Last week, Bynes celebrated being sober for 14 months.

The “What a Girl Wants” star first announced her engagement on Valentine’s Day by flashing a huge emerald-cut diamond engagement ring with the caption, “Engaged to tha love of my life.”

TMZ later reported that the ring was purchased for $49 on Amazon.
