Troubled former teenage star Amanda Bynes has left a California facility after court-ordered psychiatric treatment and is recovering at her parents' home in Los Angeles, People magazine said on Thursday. The 27-year-old actress was receiving psychiatric care at a Malibu facility after she was alleged to have started a small fire in the front of a home in Thousand Oaks, a Los Angeles suburb, in July. "Amanda has completed her inpatient rehabilitation and she's feeling better every day," lawyer Tamar Arminak said in a statement released to the magazine. "Despite the fact Amanda is no longer in a facility, her outpatient treatment is continuing," he added.

- Detroit-area millionaire offers $5 million to help protect city art: report
A Detroit-area entrepreneur has offered to donate $5 million to help protect the collection of the Detroit Institute of Arts from being sold or otherwise monetized as part of Detroit's bankruptcy, the Detroit Free Press reported on Friday. A. Paul Schaap, founder of diagnostics research firm Lumigen Inc, told the paper he planned to meet on Friday with U.S. Judge Gerald Rosen, the lead mediator in the bankruptcy, to discuss the potential donation. The Detroit Insitute of Arts' collection is owned by the city of Detroit, and Rosen has asked a number of charitable foundations to create a fund to purchase the art from the city and create an independent nonprofit to run the museum. The Christie's report also suggested five strategies for monetizing the art collection without selling it outright.

- A drop in the bucket? Christie's appraises Detroit's art
By Joseph Lichterman DETROIT (Reuters) - The auction house Christie's put a price tag on one of Detroit's highest-profile city assets, its share of the Detroit Institute of Arts collection, stating that nearly 3,000 works controlled by the city are worth between $452 million and $866 million. The finding by Christie's, hired to place a value on art treasures that could become a contested element of the Detroit bankruptcy, puts a range of value on 2,781 works owned or partially owned by the city. The holdings represent only about 5 percent of the DIA's full collection, but with the finding Tuesday that Detroit is bankrupt under Chapter 9 of the federal bankruptcy code, it is possible the city may seek to monetize some of the artwork. Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr retained Christie's in August to appraise city-owned works as part of Detroit's bankruptcy case.
