Troubled actress Amanda Bynes has been given a helping hand after a record label boss offered to pay for damage caused by the star when she allegedly started a fire on a property in California last week (begs22Jul13). Cops were called to the Thousand Oaks neighbourhood on Monday (22Jul13) after the actress allegedly tried to light a blaze on a resident's driveway. She was also accused of trespassing. The Hairspray actress was placed on psychiatric hold following the incident and remains in hospital as a judge decides whether to place her under her parent's conservatorship so they can take control of her affairs. In the wake of her recent troubles, Daniel Herman, who owns Chinga Chang Records, has handed over some money to the owner of the property in an effort to help Bynes. Herman tells TMZ.com he has watched the actress' bid to become a rapper with interest and is keen to sign her to his label. He adds that he has contacted the elderly resident of the Thousand Oaks property and given her $1,000 (£666) to pay for the cleanup.
