TMZ has obtained an audio recording they claim is of Bynes threatening to kill her parents, Rick and Lynn, as well as making some other hurtful remarks. The clip was allegedly secretly recorded by one of the Easy A actress' West Hollywood, California, roommates while the pair were riding in a car.
"If your father was my father… then you would understand why you'd want to slit his wrists, and quite frankly, be like, be like, literally like, this is where I go stupid like, I just want to like, I don't want to shoot my father in the face, and that's why I said I want to like strip for him as a joke. I want to literally like lead him into a ditch and … I haven't decided how I'd want to murder him because now I have this like, war wound on my face, and I don't believe in murder," the voice believed to be Bynes rambled on.
"Um, 'cause I know that that is like unfortunate, but it's not because it's like 'my father' 'cause I look at him as like a murderer person, he like… is the worst person and he tries to match me and be like, and it's like nothing would give me greater pleasure than like slitting his throat. That's what I would love. So like, I'm not gonna ever do such a thing, but like I call my mom and I threaten to kill her and I threaten to slit her wrist, and I threaten to like burn down her house, and I said a bunch of shit that quite frankly I've never felt better in a long time."
"Like I didn't think one unnatural thought until like, I gotta just keep up, like, I'm gonna continue telling you guys I'm gonna murder my family, like 'cause that's the thing. They're in control of my money, and that's why I don't have much money right now. Like I don't mean to brag to you guys. I'm no bragger, I don't like braggers," the voice on the tape said.
Wow. The claims are really quite hard to read, but apparently the roommate turned over the tape not in an attempt to harm Bynes, but because the person realizes Bynes needs help and hopes medical professionals can now intervene.
Bynes has decided to respond to the audio tapes and took to Twitter on Saturday to inform her fans that her death threats were all just a joke — we don't think anyone is laughing!

Bynes even used Drake and her vagina as an example to defend herself.
