AMANDA BYNES’ ATTORNEY WANTS TO GET PAID
Attorney Artemio Santiago has gone from defending Amanda Bynes to bringing her to court himself.
According to TMZ, he has filed new legal documents looking to get paid for his services.
Santiago claims he acted more like caregiver than a lawyer when he was hired by Amanda last October. He alleges that he convinced her to take her meds again and even brought her personal items like ballet shoes, tights, and more.
The attorney is asking for $16,000.
Amanda’s parents and their lawyer are apparently refusing to cough up the dough because they are arguing that the troubled star did not have the mental capacity to hire her own legal representation at the time.
