Amanda Bynes's fashion design career change isn't going so well. TMZ quotes multiple sources who say the troubled actress was expelled from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Irvine. Her classmates tell TMZ that Bynes paid fellow students to do her homework and showed up to class seeming high. One student says, "she almost always wore sunglasses and laughed out loud at inappropriate times." TMZ says she was also caught cheating off another student's test.

Bynes has stayed under the radar this past year while under the conservatorship of her parents. She had been placed under a 5150 psychiatric hold after starting a fire at a stranger's home. The conservatorship is now up, and she just got arrested for DUI.
