LOS ANGELES, Nov. 1 (UPI) -- A Los Angeles judge has denied Amanda Bynes' request to regain control of her finances and medical decisions, which are being guarded by her mother through a temporary conservatorship.

"She said she was going to fight her parents in court because she didn't want them to control her life," an unnamed source to Bynes told People.

Lawyer Art Santiago represented Bynes during Friday's hearing, but was told he could not officially act on Bynes' behalf because he is not the troubled actress' court-appointed attorney.

Bynes, 28, didn't attend the hearing, but her mother Lynne and father Rick were there.

The temporary conservatorship was ordered last month and is expected to last until February. It does not give Lynne the power to make decisions regarding her daughter's psychiatric treatment, however.

The former Hairspray, What a Girl Wants and What I Like About You star was released from a psychiatric facility Thursday where she had been placed on an involuntary hold while she underwent treatment for an unspecified mental illness. Her once-bright career has been marred in recent years by her erratic behavior, hospital stays, brushes with the law and bizarre social-media rants. Her last major film credit was in 2010's Easy A.
