Amanda Bynes' family has remained extremely quiet during the last several months, but her mother Lynn Bynes has finally broken her silence.

The 66-year-old told People magazine, "Both my husband and I love Amanda very much and we know that she will get through this situation."

The former Nickelodeon child star is currently in a treatment facility in Malibu, after being hospitalized at multiple facilities including UCLA Medical Center.

"I would really like everyone out there to know that almost 99 percent of the things written about my daughter in various media outlets are false or misleading," Lynn added.

"Unless it's a statement issued by our family attorney, Tamar Arminak, please take everything you read about Amanda with a grain of salt."

Lynn refused to give any further details about the She's the Man star's health and explained that the family is focusing on keeping the matter at hand as far removed from the public eye as possible.

"Please know that neither myself or other family members have ever released any information regarding her treatment or diagnosis," she added. "We truly believe in keeping our daughter's situation private for now."

The actress' mother also shared that the entire family is overwhelmed with the positive messages and well wishes, saying, "We appreciate everyone's heartfelt support and we hope that she can get some privacy and the respect she deserves during this trying time."

The starlet's troubles began after setting a small fire in the driveway of a home near her parents' house earlier this summer. She was subsequently placed on a temporary psychiatric hold on July 22 and on Aug. 8 a court extended that hold for an additional 30 days at her doctor's request.

After a judge determined that Amanda was incapable of giving "informed consent" regarding her medical care, her parents were granted a temporary conservatorship over their daughter's affairs.
