Amanda Bynes is fighting back.
The actress, who has been rightly accused of many driving-related problems, says she has been wrongly accused of parading around naked in public.
Bynes tells Us Weekly that she's suing In Touch Weekly for a story that claimed the actress, 26, surprised customers as she was seen walking around a New York City tanning salon recently wearing nothing. She seemed to have forgotten to put on a robe as she searched for a pair of goggles.
"I'm suing In Touch for printing a fake story," Byrnes told Us on Thursday. "I'm not 'troubled.' I don't get naked in public."
She threw in some other pertinent details, saying, "I'm 26, a multi-millionaire, retired. Please respect my privacy."
In a statement to USA TODAY, In Touch spokesperson Lindsay Ferraro says, "We stand by our reporting."
Meanwhile, as Us points out, Bynes may not be troubled, but she is in trouble, legally. She is currently facing a DUI, two hit-and-run charges, as well as two separate charges for driving with a suspended license.
