Troubled star Amanda Bynes has fans concerned about her health after tweets saying she has an eating disorder.

"I have an eating disorder so I have a hard time staying thin," she tweeted Friday, lashing out at "certain blogs and magazines saying I have a mental illness."

Bynes told Us Weekly in February her goal weight was a mere 100 pounds -- she is 5 foot 8 inches tall -- down from 121 pounds.

"I gain weight quickly so I need to work out constantly," she said.

Bynes's personal life appears troubled: she recently missed a court hearing for driving with a suspended licence and has a history of hit-and-run and DUI charges.
