BYNES CLAIMS BONG WAS A VASE
Amanda Bynes’ bizarre behavior seems to have escalated since her Thursday arrest for marijuana possession, destroying evidence and reckless endangerment, for throwing a bong out the window. Amanda was released Friday without bail, but was given a warning that if she missed her July court date an arrest warrant would be issued. She reportedly told the judge that the bong the cops witnessed her throw out of the apartment was actually “just a vase.”
BYNES INSISTS SHE DOESN’T DO DRUGS/HATES NOSE IN MUGSHOT
A few hours after she was released Friday, Amanda Bynes took to Twitter to insist she was not on drugs at the time of her arrest. "I only smoke tobacco. I don't drink or do drugs,” she tweeted, adding. "I've never had a bong in my life!" In the same tweet, she seemed to be a bit critical of her look at the time of her arrest writing, "I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot!" The mugshot finally explained why Bynes has been wearing odd wigs all over New York. The photo revealed that she has a super short buzz cut and judging from the look on her face, she wasn’t happy about having to show her real hairdo (or the fact that she was arrested).
BYNES SAYS SHE WAS SEXUALLY HARASSED BY COP
On Saturday, Amanda Bynes posted a rambling note on Twitter in which she accused her arresting officer of sexual harassment, saying he “slapped my vagina.” She claims that when the cop acted inappropriately, she called the police on him.

BYNES CLAIMS SHE’S SUING COPS
On Sunday, Amanda Bynes went off on another twitter rant about how she was treated by the cops last week, saying they “illegally entered” her apartment and “sexually assaulted” her. She added that locking her up “all night for no wrong doing is criminal on THEIR part.” She says she plans to sue, explaining, “I’ll be happy when I get money compensation from the cop who assaulted me and NYPD for wrongfully arresting me and having me put into a mental hospital and jail overnight!” On Monday, she once again stated her intention to sue for, “illegally entering my apartment, lying about drugs on me and lying about me tampering with non existent drug paraphernalia." She added, “Then I'm suing for being put into a mental hospital against my will, then locked up overnight for coming home after a facial and working out with my trainer like the good girl that I am."
BYNES SUING PARENTS FOR EMBEZZLEMENT
Amanda Bynes also went off on her parents via Twitter, claiming she’s suing them for embezzling her money. “Also never trust or listen to a word any person from my family says to the press,” she wrote. “I am suing them for money laundering/unethical manager work.” She claims her parents “had been stealing my money without me knowing” saying they had “no right to act as if they did anything to help or enhance my career and I want $ back that I earned on my own.” She added, “My parents are almost 70 years old. We are no longer on speaking terms. I would rather them be homeless than live off of my money."
BYNES STARTS TWITTER WAR WITH RIHANNA
Amidst all her rambling about her arrest, Amanda Bynes also got into a Twitter war with Rihanna. For some unknown reason, Amanda tweeted, "@rihanna Chris Brown beat you because you're not pretty enough,” adding that she wanted to name her dog after the R&B star. (She later deleted the tweets.) Rihanna then had a great response writing, “Ya see what happens when they cancel Intervention?” Amanda was quick to respond, tweeting, "@rihanna unlike ur fugly faced self I don't do drugs! U need the intervention dog! I met ur ugly face in person! U aren't pretty u know it!" (She later deleted that tweet as well.) Then, on Monday, in another rambling tweet (is there any other kind from Amanda?) she claimed all the Rihanna posts were fake, but wondered why she is being prosecuted for smoking tobacco, while Rihanna gets away with smoking pot.

Sources say Brown did give the driver the correct information, and when his lawyer tried to contact her she hung up the phone on him.

When I'm upset, let's see what happens, alright?" Han then went to the cops to try and get the address of Jen’s mom’s house, which is when he was arrested.

It was intriguing because I felt Brad had that in him and wanted to unleash it."

Kendall Jenner is fighting back against criticism aimed at her from Frances Bean Cobain. Last week, Cobain called the reality show star a “f***king idiot,” and “self-involved” for her tweet in which she wrote that sometimes she wished “things could be easier.” “An individuals feelings are relative to their environment,” Kendall wrote on Twitter. “You don't know me, you don't even know what I was referring to.” In response to Cobain’s comments about there being real hardships in the world, Kendall wrote, “I am aware that i am very privileged and blessed, and im thankful for that everyday, i know there are greater problems in the world.” She added, “ I pray for those people every night and give back as much as i can. So who are u to judge me?” Cobain later tweeted a semi-apology writing, “I don't know you nor do I think ur a bad person,” but, she added, "publicly complaining about how hard your life is is completely self serving ... I believe that venting about ones problems via the Internet is a blatant cry for attention.” Finally, Cobain wrote, "I try to deal w/ pain in a manner that pertains to my real life not in a way where strangers throw me a pity party."

GEORGE MICHAEL CAR INCIDENT JUST AN ACCIDENT
A friend of singer George Michael is insisting there’s nothing fishy about the bizarre car accident he was in earlier this month. The 49-year-old singer suffered cuts and bruises after he fell out of his car while it was speeding along the highway. Some have speculated the singer was trying to commit suicide, but a friend told The Mirror it was simply an accident. “There is no mystery - he was trying to shut the door,” the pal said. “George has been perfectly happy and is in a great place. To insinuate that he threw himself out of the car is absurd.” The friend insists George carelessly opened the passenger door of his car as he was trying to make sure it was completely shut. “It was an accident and he is the first person to put his hand up and say ‘I’m sorry,’” said the friend. “He deserves sympathy.”
