Amanda Bynes' seven-year conservatorship has reportedly been 'extended until January 2023'.

According to new documents obtained by The Blast, her parents, Lynn and Rick, will continue to have control over her finances and affairs.

No further information has been provided regarding the 35-year-old actress' long conservatorship.

Mirror have contacted Amanda's lawyer for comment.

Amanda went through a rollercoaster of a year in 2020 – getting engaged, reportedly being pregnant, and going to a psychiatric facility.

In May of last year, the She's The Man star revealed she was feeling a lot better after a social anxiety battle landed her "in treatment".

She told her Instagram followers that she had been putting in the hours to qualify from fashion school, after spending two months developing "coping skills."

Sharing a selfie, Amanda captioned the snap: "Update: Getting my Bachelor's Degree from FIDM [Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising].

"Taking online classes, trying to get a 4.0 GPA. Looking forward to starting my online store in the future #goals.

"Spent the last two months in treatment. Worked on coping skills to help with my social anxiety that caused me to drop out of school months ago. Back on track and doing well!"

Just a month before, the Easy A star told her fans that she became engaged to 29-year-old Paul, who she met at an AA meeting months prior.

Reports then emerged that Amanda’s mother planned to block the marriage – using her rights as conservator over Amanda do so.

"Hey, y’all. I want to thank you guys so much for your support. The fact that you’ve been rooting for me for years means more than you know,” Amanda said in an honest post.

“Today I want to talk about a controversial topic. My conservatorship case. I have been going to a treatment centre that charges $5,200 a month. There’s no reason why I shouldn’t go to a therapist who takes my insurance for $5,000 dollars less a month,” she continued.

“This is why I’ve asked to see the judge next week regarding this conservatorship issue. Thank you guys so much for hearing me out. I’m sorry that this is what I’m dealing with and I’m sorry to put my problems on the internet but this is what life has come to."

Amanda was first placed under a temporary conservatorship in 2013 following a number of legal issues, mental health issues and substance abuse issues.

She was arrested after allegedly starting a fire in the driveway of a California resident's home. She then landed in a 72-hour mental health evaluation hold.

The conservatorship was meant to end in August 2020.
