Amanda Bynes' mother is speaking up on her daughter's behalf.
Lynn Bynes, 66, tells People magazine that she has faith Bynes will get through her present "situation."
"We appreciate everyone's heartfelt support, and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time," Lynn, 66, says in a statement.
Her words come the same week that Bynes, 27, was transferred from UCLA Medical Center to a private treatment facility outside of Los Angeles.
Lynn, along with Bynes' father, Rick, told CNN on September 30 that their daughter will receive "specialized treatment" at the new location, which was "recommended by the skilled health care professionals at UCLA."
Two months ago, Bynes was placed under involuntary psychiatric hold after she was involved in a disturbance at a Thousand Oaks, California, residence. Since then, there has been plenty of speculation about the former Nickelodeon star - and Bynes' mom tells People that she "would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading."
Lynn goes on to say that neither she nor other family members has "ever released any information regarding (Amanda's) treatment or diagnosis. We truly believe in keeping our daughter's situation private for now. ... Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know she will get through this situation."
