Amanda Bynes accused of pinching paparazzo

A paparazzo has accused Amanda Bynes of pinching him.

The actress - who recently had her car impounded, her driving licence suspended and is facing a DUI (driving under the influence) charge - had a run in with a photographer on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles which quickly escalated into a war of words as she begged him to delete a picture of her because she wasn't happy with her appearance.

In a video obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Amanda says: ''You have to delete the one of my face, I have to look beautiful.''

She tries to get the snapper to do as she asks by complimenting him saying ''Let's get along, I like your shirt,'' but loses her temper when he fails to delete the picture.

The photographer can be heard saying: ''Can you stop pinching me? All right, stop? Amanda stop pinching me it is not necessary.

''Let me go, what the hell is wrong with you? Stop that!''

Amanda's parents are reportedly so worried about her, they have leased out their home in Cedar Park, Texas, and intend to sell it so they move to Los Angeles to be by her side.

Sources close to the family say they have no plans to pursue a conservatorship - which would give them legal control over Amanda - but they want to be on-hand to support their daughter.
