Amanda Bynes has opened up about a personal struggle.

"I'm suing certain blogs and magazines saying I have a mental illness! They take pictures anytime I've gained weight then write a fake story!" she continued.

The former Nickelodeon star then instructed the media on how to select photographs when writing about her.

"They write a news article about every tweet I write and I hate the pictures they choose. They repeat what I tweet then add a bad photo," she continued. "Only use photos from my twitter when writing an article about me."

Adding, "I don't read articles written about me unless I give an interview for a magazine. They're fake! Don't trust what u read on sites!"

Amanda's Twitter rants come on the heels of a series of headline-making incidents in recent weeks.

On Wednesday, she was spotted in New York City's Times Square, where she was seen walking around the tourist-ridden landmark in 40-degree weather wearing just sandals.
