Hollywood’s new bad girl Amanda Bynes is refusing advice from her friends and managers to go to rehab — and continued partying on Thursday night.
The former Nickelodeon actress was arrested last week and spent a night in jail after she reportedly careered into a cop car in West Hollywood. She was booked on DUI charges.
Despite being advised to remain low-key, Bynes, 26, went out clubbing for yet another night Thursday, following her run-in with the law. Our spies spotted her at the Chateau Marmont with pals before heading to West Hollywood club Greystone Manor.
A witness at the club said, “Amanda came in around midnight with one male friend. Paparazzi were all over her. She left exactly 15 minutes later and drove away in her black convertible.” She was also reportedly seen texting while driving and backing her car over a curb and onto a sidewalk after leaving Chateau Marmont.
Another source said, “Amanda’s friends are growing increasingly concerned about her and want her to go to rehab. She has been advised to stay home, but she refused.”
Another source added, “She is not the same girl as she was a year ago. She is just doing whatever she wants to. do. Friends are concerned because she is not the Amanda they know.”
We reported that Bynes went straight from the pokey to the Polo Lounge following her arrest. After she made bail, she was seen at the Beverly Hills Hotel power spot meeting with top criminal defense attorney Richard Hutton.
And we’re told Bynes had been asking for tickets to head to Palm Springs to party at Coachella this weekend, which is featuring performances by the Black Keys, Swedish House Mafia, David Guetta, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.
Her dad, Rick Bynes, last week said that his daughter doesn’t drink, and she was just at the police station for help because “she was upset and very emotional.” The actress’ rep declined to comment.Follow @PageSix
