Amanda Bynes comes back to Twitter to tell followers she's changing university

Amanda Bynes has reached out to fans on Twitter to share an update and set the record straight after several stories surfaced on the web which have worried her followers.

"Don't believe anything the tabloids are saying about me," tweeted the 28-year-old. "They dislike me for some odd reason & they continue to insult me every day."

Amanda Bynes has been spotted in New York City, after flying out of LA last week

Amanda followed this up with: "treat others how you want to be treated. The truth will set you free."

Seemingly responding to the reports that she has been expelled from Californian fashion school FIDM, the blonde star wrote: "I'm transferring to NYU or Columbia from FIDM to study psychology, so you'll see me in New York if you live here."

The former Nickelodeon star, who has been spotted in New York  was the subject of a number of reports after she was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in late September in Los Angeles. She is scheduled to appear in court in Van Nuys at the end of October.

Amanda's new Twitter posts mark the first time she has used social media since May, when she followed up a series of sunny shots from her spring break with a happy picture of herself with her "beautiful sister".

Fans were pleased to see Amanda in a good place following a difficult 2013. From July last year the She's the Man star spent five months in a Malibu treatment facility after being involuntarily hospitalised for a mental evaluation.

After leaving the treatment facility, the Hairspray actress was put under the conservatorship of her parents Lynn and Rick, meaning they took control of her finances and wellbeing. This arrangement is understood to have come to an end in June.
