Amanda Bynes is “doing great” ahead of her 35th birthday.

The ‘Amanda Show’ alum will celebrate her birthday on Saturday (03.04.21) and sources close to the star have said she’s in great spirits ahead of her big day after a turbulent few years.

Her lawyer, David A. Esquibias, told People magazine: “Amanda is doing great. She lives by the beach, attends school and is enjoying meditation and Soul Cycle classes.

“She looks forward to celebrating her birthday with family and friends.”

The news comes after Amanda was recently reported to be working on her degree at California’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising after graduating with her associate’s degree in 2019.

David said in October: “Amanda is very entrepreneurial. She is investigating fragrances. She is now considering perfume in addition to a clothing line. But, don’t get too excited. She is still a student at FIDM earning her degree.”

Meanwhile, the ‘She’s The Man’ star was ordered to stay in a psychiatric facility for mental health treatment last year after meeting with her family in court to discuss the terms of her conservatorship, which her mother Lynn currently oversees.

Amanda is currently engaged to Paul Michael, whom she met at a sober living home in 2019, and sources recently said she’s in “a much healthier place” now.

The insider said: “She’s still with Paul, and he’s actually a great influence on her. He’s an advocate for her sobriety, and he’s just a really wonderful, nice person. She’s definitely been in a much healthier place.

“She’s on great terms with her parents right now, too.

“Amanda and Paul don’t live together. They spend a lot of time together, but Amanda still does live in a sober living community. Overall Amanda is doing great right now.”
