Amanda Bynes looks happy and healthy in rare photo as she returns to social media after rehab

AMANDA Bynes looks happy and healthy in a rare photo as she returns to social media after rehab.

Things had been a little tumultuous for the former child star this past year and she had to be checked into rehab.

Amanda, 34, looks almost unrecognizable after making her comeback to social media following a year where she debuted a face tattoo, got engaged, was allegedly pregnant, and was checked into rehab.

Looking fresh and happy, the What a Girl Wants star rocked clear glasses, long black hair, a plaid shirt, and jeans.

She also wiped her entire Instagram account and changed her username to Matte Online Black Store, hinting at a possible new business endeavor.

She also closed the comment section to avoid any unwanted attention.

The last time fans had seen Amanda on her social media was back in June when she posted a bizarre selfie from her transitional home after two months in rehab.

The star also shared a "collection of her favorite photographs," which initially included a shirtless photo of her fiancé Paul Michael.

However, Amanda later deleted the photo of Paul and re-uploaded the series without him, which hinted at a possible break-up.

Amanda last gave fans an update in May, telling them: "Getting my Bachelor's degree from FIDM, taking online classes, trying to get a 4.0 GPA."

She went on: "Looking forward to starting my online store in the future #goals. Spent the last 2 months in treatment.

"Worked on coping skills to help with my social anxiety that caused me to drop out of school months ago. Back on track and doing well!

"I'm now living in transitional living and doing therapy during the week.

"Still engaged to [the] love of my life Paul. Hope you're all staying safe! Love y'all!"

Before that, Amanda's lawyer revealed she was not expecting her first child with fiance, Paul Michael, despite her posting – and then deleting – a picture of a sonogram.

David Esquibias told The Sun: "Amanda is not pregnant and is not in treatment for any addiction."

In March, Amanda's former fiancé, Paul Michael, posted an identical announcement claiming his bride-to-be was pregnant with her first child alongside a picture of the baby’s sonogram and a selfie of the happy couple cuddling.

The sonogram featured the date March 17 and had Amanda’s full name on it.

The She's The Man star was also seen at an OBGYN office with Paul and a female friend.

The Nickelodeon alum immediately liked the photo, but the couple deleted the posts shortly after.

Her lawyer also confirmed that the pair is still together and "remain close friends."

Amanda had mostly stayed out of the public eye amid struggles with drugs and mental health until her surprising announcement on Instagram.

Paul gave an exclusive update to The Sun on Amanda’s condition and said she was in a residential treatment center for trauma.

He said: “She requested it due to trauma from her childhood that still affects her. She has been in treatment, but wanted to go to a center that took her insurance. That was the issue.

“Now she’s at a place that’s expensive but is better for trauma.”

Earlier in March, rumors began to swirl that the duo had broken up after Amanda deleted all of their photos together from her social media pages.

However, in the exclusive interview with The Sun, he claimed they never actually ended their engagement.
