Her daughter Amanda Bynes continues to battle gossip about her "mental instability," and now Lynn Bynes reveals what she think caused the 28-year-old actress' odd behavior.

During an interview with E! News on Wednesday (April 10), Amanda's mom stated that the actress does not have mental health issues and marijuana might be responsible for the sudden changes in her personality.

"Amanda has no mental illnesses whatsoever," Lynn declared. "She has never been diagnosed as schizophrenic or bipolar. She is very sorry for all the hurtful tweets, statements and actions that occurred while she was under the influences of marijuana."

Miss Bynes' statement comes just hours after lawyer Tamar Arminak shot down the recent reports Amanda has been suffering from schizophrenia. "There has been much speculation about Amanda's medical condition. She has remained silent because she believed it was best to keep her mental diagnosed private. However, she asked me to dispel certain rumors. For the record, Amanda does not have schizophrenia, nor has she ever been diagnosed with it."

Arminak added, "Amanda currently is on zero medication. She's devoted to living her life as healthy as possible. She's never had a history of abusing alcohol or hard drugs, and she's proud to say she's been marijuana-free for the past nine months."
