Amanda Bynes is ready to take the next steps in her life.
The actress has voluntarily checked out of the sober living facility she was saying in and is now living with her parents until she finds a place of her own.
According to the source, Bynes — as well as her parents and their conservatorship attorney — were in a Ventura County courtroom on Thursday afternoon where they met with a judge to make sure it was acceptable that Bynes live on her own now that she is out of the sober living facility.
ET has learned that a discussion of Bynes’ alternative living arrangements and how they will work out were discussed during the court hearing.
The source says Bynes is OK with the current plan in place, and that Bynes and her parents walked out of the Ventura County courthouse together after today’s hearing.
“She has a great relationship with them,” the source adds. “She’s always in touch with them.”
The source claims that Bynes recently dropped out of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in L.A.
While Bynes graduated in June with her associate degree, according to ET’s source, the actress had recently started taking classes at FIDM again recently because she wanted to get her bachelor’s degree in fashion.
Bynes’ conservatorship attorney, Tamar Arminak, had no comment when reached by phone Thursday evening.
A friend close to Bynes told ET back in June that she’d gotten “a day pass” to leave her inpatient mental health facility so she could walk at her graduation from FIDM — which took place at the Staples Center — because she’d “been doing well enough in treatment.”
“She’s in a good place and was very happy to graduate,” the friend said, adding that Bynes went directly back to the facility after her graduation.
This warms our hearts. We’re still rooting for you, Amanda!
