A rep for the star was not immediately available for further comment. The former Nickelodeon star was involuntarily hospitalized for a mental health evaluation last July after she started a fire in the driveway of a California home. The incident came after a reckless endangerment arrest, car accidents, DUI arrests and increasingly erratic behavior. She was placed on three years’ probation in February stemming from a 2012 DUI charge. Bynes completed a rehab stint and then enrolled part-time at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Orange County.[contentblock id=2 img=adsense.png]
