Amanda Bynes put on a loved up display with fiancé Paul Michael as the couple stepped out in Los Angeles this week.
Paul wrapped his arm around the She’s The Man star and pulled her in for a big smooch as the couple headed to a phone store on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old looked casual in a yellow t-shirt and pale knee-length shorts with black slides.

She didn’t wear her big engagement ring but had her hands full with a can of Diet Pepsi, her phone and a cigarette.
Curiously her new tattoo above her eyebrow wasn’t visible, hinting it may not be permanent after all.
The heart-shaped inking under her right eye was still present.
Amanda met Paul, who is from the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles, in rehab late last year. His father is a prominent doctor in LA.
Meanwhile Amanda’ family are reportedly poised to block her marriage.

The actress won’t be able to tie the knot anytime soon, as Amanda’s mother Lynn is her conservator, and she doesn’t approve of her daughter’s engagement.
The Easy A star’s family have yet to meet her fiance and they don’t feel it’s in her best interest to tie the knot, according to TMZ.
The couple – who first met around two months ago – got engaged on Valentine’s Day, and they shared their happy news on Instagram later that day.
Amanda posted an image of her sparkling diamond ring on the photo-sharing platform and captioned the eye-catching snap: ‘Engaged to tha love of my life. (sic)’

They get the final say: Amanda’s family are said to be ready to block her marriage as she still is under conservatorship
However, Amanda – who has struggled with substance abuse and mental health issues over recent years – cannot legally get married without the permission of the judge in her conservatorship case, as well as her mother Lynn.
Her mother is Amanda’s conservator, and has the final say in many aspects of her daughter’s life, including whether or not to allow the Hollywood star to get married.
Explaining how the process works, Neama Rahmani, the president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, recently said: ‘As Amanda’s conservator, her mother has responsibility over her daughter’s decision-making, including whether or not to allow her to marry.
‘If Amanda’s parents did not consent to the marriage, they can petition the court to annul the marriage on the basis of Amanda’s ‘unsound mind.”

Lynn has been in control of Amanda’s well-being for more than five years now under a strict conservatorship.
The Hairspray star revealed a few the details of what she refers to as her ‘controversial’ conservatorship case, which began in 2013 following a public meltdown and 5150 involuntary psychiatric hold.
‘Hey, y’all. I wanted to thank you guys so much for your support. The fact that you’ve been rooting for me for years means more than you know,’ she began in a selfie video posted to her Instagram last week. ‘Today I wanna talk about a controversial topic: my conservatorship case. I have been going to a treatment center that charges $5,200 a month.’

Amanda added: ‘There is no reason why I shouldn’t go to a therapist who takes my insurance for $5,000 less a month. This is why I’ve asked to see the judge next week regarding this conservatorship issue.’
She told her fans: ‘Thank you guys so much for hearing me out. I’m sorry that this is what I’m dealing with and I’m sorry to put my problems onto the internet, but this is what life has come to. So thank you guys so much for always supporting me. Love you all. Peace out. Appreciate your love and support.
The actress – who graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in June 2019 – is believed to be currently residing in a sober living house.
