Amanda Bynes, Paul Michael split weeks after engagement

March 9 (UPI) -- Amanda Bynes and her fiancé, Paul Michael, have called it quits.

E! News reported Sunday that Bynes, 33, and Michael split just three weeks after announcing their engagement.


Michael confirmed the split to InTouch magazine .

"We did [split up]," he said. "I love her though, she's my best friend."

"This is Paul, my fiancé. I'm so lucky. As you can see, he's drop-dead gorgeous. He's also the best person on the face of the Earth," she said.

Bynes and Michael reportedly met in rehab. Bynes has been living in a sober house since graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in June.

Bynes is an actress who came to fame on the Nickelodeon series All That. She most recently starred in the 2010 film Easy A.
