Jenny McCarthy decided to break news about Amanda Bynes late Wednesday night, claiming that cops were called out to the actress' New York home. Tweeting the news, McCarthy even attempted to provide proof.
"Police are at @AmandaBynes house. I hope they get her help. Enough of this circus. She needs help," McCarthy, 40, tweeted, later adding that the news came from a publicist.
She followed this up by posting a screen grab of Jonathan Jaxson's tweets. Jaxson is reportedly a former publicist to the What I Like About You star.
UPDATE: Bynes responded to McCarthy's tweets this morning, writing: "@JennyMcCarthy you're ugly! Police weren't at my house old lady! Shut the fuck up!"
The actress added: "@jennymccarthy I need help? What are u talking about? Aren't u 50 years old? I'm 27, u look 80 compared to me! Why are you talking about me?"
Jenny tweeted back: "@AmandaBynes sorry girl. Looking out for ya."
Bynes wrote back: "@JennyMcCarthy thanks! I'm sorry I offended you! You're beautiful! I was lying! I'll delete our tweets!"
@jennymccarthy thanks! I'm sorry I offended you! You're beautiful! I was lying! I'll delete our tweets!— Amanda Bynes (@AmandaBynes) May 2, 2013
Admitting to deleting some of his tweets, one of Jaxson's remaining messages reads: "I just spoke to @AmandaBynes and she is soooo messed up on drugs and please @NY_POLICE find her and help her! I don't know her address!"
He adds: "If trying to help someone you feel is in trouble is a crime, then there is a problem. A cry for help is just that! I did what I KNEW to do!"
This alleged intervention came moments after Bynes, 27, posted topless photos of herself on Twitter.
ET spoke with law enforcement, and could not confirm that cops were actually called out to her house.
What do you think? Was it time for someone to step in?
