A close friend of Amanda Bynes has given details about the actress' drug problems before she was ordered to a psychiatric hospital.

Speaking exclusively to Heat magazine, Ana Rivera claims that the star would smoke weed all the time.

"I would go see her pretty much every day and she was chain smoking joints. She would smoke five in an hour. One time she had me roll ten joints and them smoked all of them one after the other."

Ana - who met Amanda on the street in November last year - claims that the two of them would hang out at the actress' house on Wall Street after she was evicted from her hotel.

She also says that the actress would even take a joint to the gym, "She walked into the elevator smoking. She wasn't even wearing workout clothes - she wore a black leotard and huge sneakers - and then got on the running machine with a joint."

Amanda was hospitalised on 23 July after setting fire to her own leg at her Californian home. Last week, her mum asked a judge for a conservatorship over her daughter's financial and business affairs.

Ana revealed that she is relieved that the actress is getting treatment. "If she hadn't set fire to herself on that night, then she would have never received any help."

"Bizarrely, that incident could have saved her life. It's really sad but it's a relief that she's finally getting the help she needs."
