Amanda Bynes caught sleeping in mall

AMANDA Bynes was caught sleeping in a shopping mall.   

The troubled star was spotted snoozing on a sofa at the Beverly Centre in Los Angeles before taking to Twitter to claim she couldn't afford a hotel.   

She wrote after photographs of her emerged taking a very public nap in the busy shopping mall: "I was not given money for a hotel so I have been staying with friends and I didn't get enough sleep last night so I fell asleep on a couch @ the Beverly center and a paparazzi snuck in and took pictures of me (sic)."  

The 28-year-old actress blamed her parents Lynn and Rick Bynes - who have been granted a conservatorship over their daughter - for not giving her enough money to find proper accommodation.  

She said: "FYI! I hate my parents for still not giving me money for a hotel. What is wrong with them? My lawyer is working to have them fully removed from being my conservator, because they don't deserve control over my money - They are miserable in their life and I will fight to get control of my finances taken away from them!"  

The news follows reports that Amanda's mother is planning to step down as conservator of the 'Easy A' actress' finances.  

Amanda's conservatorship attorney David Esquibias recently revealed her financial affairs are to be put in the charge of an unnamed private trust firm, in order to make them more accessible to the actress.  

According to E! News, her parents - who are said to have decided to move away from California in order to be close to their other daughter - are hoping that transferring the role will help repair their relationship with Amanda.
