Former kid star Nick Cannon had words of encouragement for his former Nickelodian Star Amanda Bynes as she deals with her many issues.

Check it out after the break.

As Amanda Bynes continues to be hospitalized on an involuntary psychiatric hold after setting a fire in a driveway in Thousand Oaks, CA, her former “All That”costar, Nick Cannon, tells “Extra’s” AJ Calloway  he is praying for her.
“We’re just hoping for the best, this business can take the best of us and kind of drain us and I think that’s kinda what it’s done.”

Nick said he has not spoken to Bynes in a week and a half , but plans on reaching out to her again, “I’m gonna always be there for her, in her corner, that’s family.”

Amanda Bynes is under medical attention after causing a fire in the driveway of her hometown. Thousand Oaks.  She refered to the fire as a “campfire” and was enough for the actress to be placed on a  5150 psychiatric hold.  5150 is a section of the California Welfare code, which regulates involuntary  hospitalization. It is used “when any person, as a result of mental disorder, is  a danger to others, or to himself or herself, or gravely disabled.”

Britney Spears was placed under the same 72-hour lock down code during her  very public meltdown in early 2008.

“Amanda seems to be doing well,” a source told us of her hospital stay,  adding that a treatment plan was being discussed. “The thing with Amanda is that  it isn’t as bizarre as it seems. She knows when to pull it together and act  normal.”

The night before being taken in, Bynes, 26, is said to have been drunk and  caused a disturbance outside a local Thousand Oaks retirement village. The  former child star reportedly tried to leave in a taxi, but was kicked out when  she declared she had no money, and police were later called when Bynes attempted  again to get inside the retirement facility.

This comes as the latest in a deluge of questionable activity, including  being kicked out of the Ritz-Carlton and trespassing at an old folks’ home.

Amanda Bynes’s parents Rick and Lynn, haven’t spoken with  their daughter since she was hospitalized on an involuntary psychiatric hold in  Los Angeles but are now considering getting a conservatorship over her.

The woman in whose driveway she started the campfire wants Amanda’s parents to pay for damages. Amanda’s parents have refused to take responsibility for the campfire. It’s all so crazy!!!!!!!!!

We agree with Nick Cannon let’s all pray for Amanda Bynes. We find her stories amusing but mental illness is not a laughing matter!
