Anyone looking for a roommate?

Amanda Bynes has reportedly been evicted from her New York apartment following her arrest on May 23 for smoking pot in the lobby of her building.

A source told In Touch magazine that the actress “was notified that she is no longer welcome as a tenant in the building in light of recent events.”

“At 9 p.m. on Tuesday, movers showed up and removed Amanda’s belongings from her apartment. She is officially gone from the building,” the source explained.

The In Touch report adds that requests for the former Nickelodeon star’s eviction had been filed even before her latest brush with the law. “Even before her arrest, residents had constant complaints about the smell of marijuana coming from her apartment,” an NYPD source said. “She had also cursed out residents and the doormen, and the smell of pot from her apartment was really annoying people.”

On May 23, one of the doormen at 271 West 47th Street called the police to report that Bynes was rolling a joint and smoking pot in the lobby.

According to TMZ, when the police arrived at the actress’ home, she casually threw the bong she was holding out the window, before being placed under arrest. Wearing her signature platinum blonde wig, Bynes reportedly pulled a Reese Witherspoon, yelling “Don’t you know who I am?”

She was charge with criminal possession of pot and reckless endangerment, and taken for a psychological evaluation. The infamous bong has yet to be found.

Despite her seemingly erratic behavior, Bynes’ attorney insists that she is fine. “Amanda is a normal client,” Richard Hutton told E! News. “I’ve seen no indication of anything other than that. She is fully cooperating with me.”

Bynes is due back in court on July 9.
