Nick Cannon is speaking out in support of his former “All That” co-star Amanda Bynes after learning of her recent hospitalization on a psychiatric hold.
In an open letter on his website, Cannon opens up about Bynes’s recent issues, calling her “one of the most pleasant human beings I have had the pleasure of meeting.”
“Sometimes I would answer in a playful humorous manner and sometimes I would brush it off as another Pop culture topic that a reporter was trying to retrieve a sound bite for,” Cannon wrote. “But after recent events of Amanda being admitted under psychiatric care and reported as 5150, I see this as no laughing matter.”
The "America's Got Talent" host goes on to say that the industry chews people up and spits them out and refers to fame as an addiction. He adds that being a child star and handling fame can be extremely difficult.
“We all end up alone in that dark hole at some point in our lives and if you don’t have a foundation of friends and family to help bring you up and out it makes that journey long and detrimental,” he said. “So I say to my sister Amanda Bynes you’re not alone. I’m here for you. I understand.”
