According to a report by TMZ on Friday, sources said that they were worried about Paul’s temper and feared that the pair’s relationship could potentially end violently.

The troubled 36-year-old actress had previously accused Paul of vandalizing his mother’s residence in a video on her Instagram Story.

The insiders also claimed that the Sydney White star had called the police over fears for her safety before Paul made his own 911 call.

Sources told TMZ that Amanda’s parents still stand by their agreement to end her conservatorship after almost nine years as she ‘continues to do well on her own, but the concern is now over Paul.’
This comes after Amanda appeared to have reunited with Paul, just hours after accusing him of using drugs, watching disturbing pornography and vandalizing his mom’s home which resulted in the incendiary argument that prompted the 911 call.
Amanda and Paul shared a kiss as they were seen stepping out together on Thursday mid-morning in LA for a loved up display.
Their very public display of love appears to confirm the engaged couple have reconciled after their argument just hours earlier.

But earlier things were different. The Love Wrecked performer had taken to her Instagram stories on Thursday to publicly claim he has stopped taking his medications and she declared she had ‘kicked him out’ of her house over his ‘alarming behavior’.
‘I’m afraid of what he’ll do,’ Amanda said, alleging that she found his ‘stash of crack cocaine’ and that he had put ‘salmon under’ his mom’s bed.
Right before her Instagram stories, Paul called police to their home at 2:30am during a verbal dispute with the star and accused her of taking his Adderall and calling her ‘out of control,’ according to TMZ.

During the 2:30 am call to the police, Paul had told the police she kicked him out of the house but he stayed there until they arrived, per the outlet’s source with the LAPD.
He spoke to the dispatcher and told them they were in a verbal dispute.
According to the outlet, he reportedly went to his Instagram and said he didn’t know ‘what the f**k she’s talking about.’

Amanda’s lawyer David Esquibias gave People a statement on Thursday morning after the accusations and cop visit.
David said: ‘Amanda and Paul had an argument Wednesday evening. Amanda left her home, where Paul has been residing, for her safety before the situation escalated. She was not there when police arrived.’
‘Amanda is now back home and denies Paul’s claims of taking his medication. She remains focused on her well-being,’ he said to the outlet.

Hours before, Amanda posted a snap of Paul to her stories as he lounged on the couch.
Amanda spoke directed to the camera next, listing out the accusations against her fiancé.
‘Paul told me he stopped taking his medications. I looked at his phone and he was looking at mom and son porn.’
Adding: ‘He vandalized his mom’s home, he broke all of her pictures and he put salmon under her bed. His behavior is alarming and I’m afraid of what he’ll do.’
On Tuesday, Amanda released her second song with Paul, titled ‘Fairfax.’
Two weeks earlier, Amanda released a clip of her single titled Diamonds, which she made with Paul.
Amanda and Paul met at a sober living home in late 2019 and got engaged the following year.
The What I Like About You star’s lawyer David A. Esquibias told ET that Amanda and Michael put the track together amid the initial stages of the coronavirus pandemic shutdown.
The shocking accusations come just one month after a conservatorship her parents presided over since 2013 was terminated in Ventura County Superior Court in Oxnard, California.

‘The court determines that the conservatorship is no longer required and that grounds for establishment of a conservatorship of the person no longer exist,’ Judge Roger Lund said in court docs from last month.
Amanda was placed under the conservatorship in 2013 amid a series of legal issues, and problems with mental health and substance abuse.
Last month, the judge said that the actress had proven she was adept to deal with her health issues without oversight from her parents, who did not object to the change in plans.
When the conservatorship was initially implemented in 2013, the star’s parents Rick and Lynn Bynes said in court docs they were worried Amanda could harm herself or other people unless they were able to oversee her medical affairs and finances.
Her parents said they were concerned she could undergo potentially perilous plastic surgery, and told the court the actress believed she was being monitored through her vehicle’s dashboard and smoke detectors in her home.
Amanda told ET following the ruling that she was focused on her education and work on a fragrance product she was planning on releasing in the future.

‘I am continuing with my Bachelor’s Degree at FIDM, majoring in Creative Industry Studies with a core in Beauty Marketing and Product Development,’ Amanda told the outlet, noting that she was ‘traveling to New York in June to work on developing a fragrance.’
Amanda found fame as a child star at the age of 13 on Nickelodeon’s The Amanda Show, and went on to have success on shows such as All That and What I Like About You. She was also featured in films including She’s the Man, What a Girl Wants and Hairspray, with her last appearance in a motion picture coming in 2010’s Easy A.
She said on Twitter that year that she was retiring from her acting career, writing, ‘Being an actress isn’t as fun as it may seem. If I don’t love something anymore I stop doing it. I don’t love acting anymore so I’ve stopped doing it.’
