Amanda Bynes isn't too pleased with how her photos turned out in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine. Upon the publication hitting newsstands, the What I Like About You star took to Twitter on Wednesday to reveal her plans to sue the magazine, claiming that the photos used of her were altered.
"That's not my bed! Those aren't my toes! My toes are pedicured! I just did an exclusive interview with In Touch last week, now they bought fake altered photos by that ugly black man in the photo or someone who knows him! They used an old shot of me on the cover with a bad angle of my old nose before I had surgery to reshape my profile and to remove the webbing from my eyes," Bynes, 27, writes in a tweet well over the allotted characters. "I have to sue because that's not my apartment, those aren't my clothes! They morphed photos of my face onto someone's body to ruin my life! I have to make a big deal of this and sue because that's not me! I care about my appearance so I have to defend myself! I look like a different person now that I had surgery! Why did they put an old shot of me on the cover? I don't look like that anymore!"

Spouting out profanities, Bynes continues: "I only want photos of my gorgeous new nose on the cover of tabloids and real magazines! The photos in this issue are fake and mocked up! I don't care enough to keep talking about it. Just assume that I f***ed the boyfriend of the editor of In Touch because they f***ing hate me!"

In Touch did use an older photo of Bynes for their cover, with the headline reading: "Amanda Bynes: Destroyed By Fame."
UPDATE: In Touch has responded to Bynes' accusations, saying in a statement: "The photos of Amanda Bynes inside this week's issue of In Touch speak for themselves. We at In Touch have done our due diligence and research on the photos and the article that accompanies them. In Touch has not altered or photoshopped these photos in any way. Additionally, the photographer has assured In Touch that these photos of Amanda were not altered or photoshopped in any way prior to the magazine obtaining them and they are, in fact, of Amanda Bynes taken at Amanda's apartment in New York City. All of Amanda's claims pertaining to the photos in this week's In Touch are false."
Whose side are you on? Do you think In Touch magazine altered Bynes' photos?
