UPDATE: Amanda’s mother Lynn has broken her silence about the allegations, telling E! News in a statement via her attorney:

“I am heartbroken today for my husband of 47 years. Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth!  These allegations stem from Amanda’s mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband’s character could be slandered in such a way.”

Following her statement of support for her husband, Amanda took to twitter yet again:

Could this be true? Is it just a continuation of the strange behavior Bynes has exhibited over the past few weeks or something deeper? You can read the entire rant here to judge for yourself:
