Amanda Bynes Tweets About Needing Wig Help Following Arrest & Release

Following her arrest on Thursday and Friday court appearance in New York City, Amanda Bynes says she wants to get help – for her wig.

The troubled former Nickelodeon star took to Twitter to lament the state of her fake blond locks late Friday evening.

“I need Nicki Minaj’s wig person stat! :P” Amanda, 27, wrote, referencing the creatively coiffed rapper/“American Idol” judge.

A few hours prior to the wig Tweet, Amanda used Twitter to deny reports alleging she had been smoking marijuana and threw a bong out the window when police arrived at her NYC apartment.

“I only smoke tobacco I don’t drink or do drugs. I’ve never had a bong in my life! I need to get another nose job after seeing my mugshot!” she wrote.

As previously reported on, Amanda appeared in a criminal court Friday disheveled in a long blond wig and sweats where she was charged with reckless endangerment after police said she heaved a marijuana bong out of her Manhattan apartment building.

The former child star was arrested Thursday evening, after building officials at her midtown apartment called police to complain she was rolling a joint and smoking pot in the lobby.

The officers went to her apartment on the 36th floor where they said they saw heavy smoke and a bong sitting on the kitchen counter. They said she tossed the bong out the window in front of them, prosecutors said.

“My client completely denies illegally throwing anything out of her window,” said Andrew Friedman, Amanda’s attorney for the arraignment.

The judge released her on her own recognizance and gave her a July 9 court date.
