Amanda Bynes shows off cheek piercing - See photo
Amanda Bynes might have dropped out of the spotlight but she's still sharing updates to fans on her various social media sites including a new photo of her cheek piercing.
The 26-year-old former actress shared two photos of her new piercing on her Tumblr blog on January 14, according to ABC News. One photo of a blonde Bynes smiling with the sparking stud can be seen above. The other photo was Tweeted with a link to the Tumblr blog from an unverified Twitter account. It is unclear if the blog and Twitter account really do belong to Bynes.
Bynes, who has become known as of late for her traffic run-ins with the law, resolved two misdemeanor hit-and-run cases in December that occurred in early 2012 after she and the drivers she was accused of hitting reached civil settlements.
On April 10, a person told police that Bynes rear-ended their car on a Los Angeles highway and fled the scene. She was not arrested. Prosecutors reopened the case after a second one surfaced in early August, when a Los Angeles woman told police that Bynes rear-ended her on a busy street in the San Fernando Valley area and fled the scene.
Following the two incidents and a separate arrest in West Hollywood over a suspected DUI, Bynes lost her driving privileges.
Bynes has stayed away from the press in the past few months but she did tell People magazine in a phone interview in late September she is "doing amazing," adding: "I am retired as an actor. I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line. I am not talking about being arrested for DUI because I don't drink, and I don't drink and drive. It is all false."
Bynes rose to fame as a child star with a role in the Nickelodeon series "All That" and later appeared in movies such as "What a Girl Wants," "Hairspray" and "Easy A."
