It's a big day for Amanda Bynes as she has filed to officially end her conservatorship after almost 10 years. The former Amanda Show actress filed the documents in LA on Wednesday, as reported by TMZ.

This significant news comes just a few months after fellow child star Britney Spears was released from her conservatorship.

TMZ reports that "What A Girl Wants" star Amanda Bynes has filed to end her conservatorship after nine years.

Amanda was placed under the conservatorship back in 2013 following a series of concerning events and an ongoing battle with her mental health.

Amanda's decision to file comes as a surprise to many as a judge signed off in September to keep the conservatorship in place until at least March 2023.

However, as the public has seen with Britney Spears, conservatorships with no end in sight can be detrimental.

Amanda Bynes is best known for her work as a child star in the Nickelodeon comedy series "All That" followed by her own spin-off series, "The Amanda Show."

She also starred in cult-classic early 2000's films like She's the Man and What A Girl Wants.

Amanda's last film, "Easy A" was released in 2010.

A year after Amanda's conservatorship was put into place, the actress raised concerns when she tweeted about her father abusing her.

Her parents denied the allegations, as per the DailyMail, and Amanda quickly changed her story.

"My dad never did any of those things," she tweeted in 2014.

"The microchip in my brain made me say those things but he's the one that ordered them to microchip me."

Amanda was planning a Hollywood comeback for 2018, speaking with "Paper" magazine at the time.

She told the publication that she got depressed after filming She's The Man.

"I went into a deep depression for 4-6 months because I didn't like how I looked when I was a boy," she explained.

"I've never told anyone that."

Amanda recalled seeing herself with short hair and sideburns for the first time on-screen and called it "a super strange and out-of-body experience. It just really put me into a funk."

This highly anticipated Hollywood comeback contributed to Amanda's stress.

Unfortunately, the stress lead to a relapse in 2019. The actress checked into a mental health facility that same year to seek help for substance abuse.

Over the past three years, the 35-year-old has been keeping a low profile and has seemingly been working on her personal life.

A hearing on Amanda's conservatorship has been placed on the court docket at the end of March.
