Embattled actress Amanda Bynes has fallen victim to cyber criminals after her Twitter.com blog was hacked while she remains under doctors’ care in a psychiatric facility in California.

The Hairspray star was rumored to have been granted Internet access on Saturday after a random message reading “I love Drake” popped up on the micro-blogging site in an apparent reference to the rapper she has both praised and savagely criticized in bizarre online rants in recent months.

However, her attorney, Tamar Armanak, has been quick to set the record straight about the tweet, insisting Bynes has not been allowed to log on since she was hospitalized for mental health issues in July.

Armanak tells RadarOnline.com, “Amanda’s Twitter account has been hacked. She is at the UCLA Medical Center with no access to phones or computers.”

Bynes was recently transferred to UCLA from a facility in Ventura County, California at the request of her mother Lynne, who was named temporary conservator of her daughter’s estate last month when her hospital stay was extended for another 30 days.

Meanwhile, Armanak has also distanced Bynes and her family from any association with publicist Jonathan Jaxson, who has been offering up comments about the star’s health progress to various media outlets.

The lawyer tells Eonline.com, “Jonathan Jaxson does not represent the Bynes family or Amanda. We are not sure why he is commenting on Amanda’s health care or representing himself as a publicist hired by her family. Amanda’s family continues to be devoted to their daughter’s well being.”

Jaxson previously hit headlines in 2011 after former client Kim Kardashian filed suit against the spokesman for making false claims about her alleged attempts to gain media attention in the wake of the reality TV star’s split from husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries.
