Before she became a tabloid staple over the last six months, Amanda Bynes was known as a cute former child star.
She also found time to take on leading roles in comedy films like 2003's "What a Girl Wants" with Colin Firth, 2006's "She's the Man," and 2007's "Sydney White," as well as supporting roles in 2007's "Hairspray" with John Travolta and 2010's "Easy A" with Emma Stone.
In 2007, Bynes had her own clothing line, Dear, at the now defunct store Steve and Barry's. These days, that name has become synonymous with trouble.
Her driver’s license was suspended after she was charged with two hit-and-runs and a DUI just since April.
She even rear-ended a car when she wasn't supposed to be behind the wheel.
And in the latest chapter of the Amanda Bynes saga, TMZ reports that she barricaded herself in the dressing room of West Hollywood boutique Kin for an hour and 45 minutes on Monday.
A clerk reportedly became so worried about Bynes that another employee was called to the store, and when they checked on the actress, she repeatedly told them that she needed more time.
When Bynes emerged from the dressing room at about p.m., she purchased several items.
Soon after she exited the store, she returned to pay for a swimsuit that she said she forgot she was still wearing underneath her clothes.
Then, she finally left the shop in a cab that she had asked the clerk to call for her. The driving woes appear to just be a small part of Bynes' problems.
