In Hollywood, there is a small group of celebrities who have spiraled so out of control that they were placed on involuntary psychiatric holds. While this has helped some of them get the help they need to get their lives back on track, it hasn’t always been entirely successful. We have some celebrities on our list who are still struggling in spite of all the help that they’ve received and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. We only know of five celebrities who have been taken into custody under California’s code 5150, so here they are with a brief history on their (alleged) hospitalizations.
5. Amanda Bynes
Amanda Bynes was recently placed under her second psychiatric hold – her first one was back in 2013 after months of erratic behavior. Prior to her current hospitalization, the former actress was behaving bizarrely again. Things came to a head when she accused her father via Twitter of sexually, physically and verbally abusing her and putting a microchip in her brain. It looks like her parents are in the process of putting another conservatorship in place.Featureflash / Shutterstock.com
