Amanda Bynes' request to be released from her involuntary psychiatric hold has been denied by a judge.

Amanda Bynes' bid to be released from her involuntary psychiatric hold has been denied.

The 27-year-old actress was placed under the hold last month after being arrested for starting a small fire outside a stranger's home, and a judge has denied her motion to be released and ruled she must remain at the facility in Los Angeles until 9 August, according to gossip website RadarOnline.

It was also said Amanda isn’t stable on her medication and needs to remain under medical supervision.

The Easy A star, who retired from acting to focus on carving out a career in music, has been displaying signs she’s suffering from mental illness since she was taken into police custody.

An insider previously revealed Amanda's parents, Lynn and Rick, believe she’s a danger to herself and are hoping to secure a conservatorship that would give them legal control over the actress until she gets her life back on track.

Amanda was arrested and admitted to hospital after using a canister of gasoline to light a fire in a woman's driveway in Thousand Oaks, California.

She accidentally also soaked her Pomeranian puppy in gasoline and a surveillance video showed her rushing into a nearby liquor store to wash the pet.

The dog is now in the care of her parents.
