Amanda Bynes to Sue Over Naked Tanning Salon Story
Amanda Bynes is threatening legal action over a celebrity news report that claims the troubled actress was wandering around a New York tanning salon naked.
In Touch claimed Thursday that the 26-year-old was seen at Beach Bump tanning salon in NYC. Nude. “She walked out of the room completely naked,” a source said.
Except for goggles, that is. There’s your awesome visual for the day.
“She didn’t seem to care in the last that everyone saw her naked. She seemed totally out of it … There was definitely something wrong with her.”
Bynes denies the report and is threatening legal action, Celebuzz reports.
“I’m suing In Touch for printing a fake story,” the furious star said. “I’m not ‘troubled.’ I don’t get naked in public. I’m 26, a multi-millionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy.”
Troubled or not, Bynes’ behavior has raised concerns. A string of hit-and-runs and DUIs and being photographed smoking from a drug pipe in of her car will do that.
All those things actually happened, of course. This tanning story?
Let’s just say that In Touch isn’t the most reliable gossip source.
Just last month, Tom Cruise’s lawyer Bert Fields filed a $50 million lawsuit against the publisher for two stories that falsely claimed Tom abandoned daughter Suri, 6.
You can’t sue someone for printing the truth, but Cruise clearly didn’t “abandon” anyone. As for Amanda Bynes, we’ll see if she makes good on her threat.
