According to a photog, Bynes’s new friend was waiting for her in front of her apartment. After they met up, they walked around laughing, talking, and doing whatever it is fake friends do. Eventually, Bynes hit up an ATM machine where she withdrew some money, handed it to the girl and sent her on her way.
Amanda sort of says this is partially true. That’s actually her assistant Nadia.
We look awful, I look fat in that photo you chose, which doesn’t help my eating disorder. I’m with my assistant Nadia @collegecandy

So, yea, she’s paying for a friend, but not in the way you think she is.
