Amanda Bynes has been ordered to enter a psychiatric facility for a mental health treatment.

According to The Blast, a judge in Amanda's conservatorship case met with the 33-year-old actress, her parents, and then-fiance Paul Michael last week and made the decision.

Sources told the outlet, the secret court hearing was held last Thursday (March 5) where all parties in the conservatorship case, including Paul, met to discuss the details of Amanda's engagement and her current mental state.

The judge in the case ordered Amanda to be placed into a psychiatric facility after hearing from her family. While she was not taken to a facility straight from the courthouse, Amanda agreed to enter treatment over the weekend. However, when the time came for her to check herself into the live-in facility, she never showed up, The Blast reports.

Amanda is now reportedly refusing to cooperate. It's unclear what next steps will be taken to get Amanda into the facility.

As fans know, Amanda and Paul announced that they were engaged three weeks ago. However, on Sunday (March 8), Paul told In Touch they had called off the engagement, saying, "I love her though, she’s my best friend."

Insiders told The Blast Paul "freaked out" after attending Thursday's court hearing. The couple's break up was reportedly prompted by Paul not wanting to do anything that would get him in trouble with the judge or others in Amanda's case. He has also reportedly told friends, he doesn't want to be blamed for her current state, or for it getting worse over time.
