The photo shows Bynes and Michael taking a selfie together. The former actress captioned the photo, “My love.” Bynes is currently under a conservatorship of her parents, meaning that any large life decision, like entering into a engagement, must legally be approved by them. There is speculation that Bynes and Michael separated due to her parents’ disapproval. However, with the recent selfie still up on Instagram as of this writing, perhaps Byne’s parents are allowing her to pursue a relationship with Michael because of her pregnancy.
