In a series of tweets posted earlier this morning, Amanda Bynes accused her dad of child abuse, saying he was "verbally and physically" abusive when she was a kid and that living with him "was a total nightmare." Now she says the microchip in her brain made her say those things.

Bynes's mother, Lynn, provided this statement to Hollyscoop through her lawyer, Tamar Arminak:

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.

Now, Bynes is reportedly trying to escape New York City and avoid her parents. Per TMZ:

Amanda Bynes is fleeing New York City after learning her parents were planning to go to NYC to get her in a mental health facility ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Bynes first went to LaGuardia to get out of town but was ordered out of the Airport after screaming at a ticket agent. She was agitated that a flight wasn't immediately leaving. She then jumped in a car to make her way to JFK.

The accusations Bynes made against her father—with whom she was living under a conservatorship until recently—are disturbing. She has deleted some of her Tweets.

Bynes has been having a hard time lately. Radar Online reported Wednesday that her dad, Rick Bynes, has prevented her mom Lynn from flying to New York City to "rescue" her.
