The former Nickelodeon star slipped a gold chain handbag over her shoulder and slipped a pair of frames into her hoodie.
She tied her jet black hair into a tight ponytail and let wispy bangs frame her face as she showed off bright red lips and smoky eye makeup.
On Friday, TMZ reported that supporters of Britney Spears and the #FreeBritney movement have now set their sights on Amanda after Britney’s father was suspended from running her guardianship.
Protesters who spoke to the publication from outside the courthouse when Jamie Spears’ fate was decided shared that they believed Amanda was in a position comparable to the pop superstar.

Megan Radford, who has been described as an organizer of #FreeBritney, said the movement would seek to lend support to the Nickelodeon star once Britney’s legal wrangling is over.
She added that the group will also try to raise awareness of abuse of the Guardianship through future public gatherings.
However, she reiterated that #FreeBritney supporters will not give up on the singer until her tutelage is definitely over.
The She’s The Man star has faced significant mental health challenges in recent years, and she was previously diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.
Love is in the air: Amanda revealed she was engaged to fiance Paul Michael last year
A year after starting her guardianship in 2013 – with her parents taking control of her affairs – Amanda raised concerns when she tweeted that her father had been “verbally and physically” abusive towards her as a child.
She also accused him of being “incestuous” towards her.
Her parents denied the allegations, and Amanda quickly changed her mind with an equally concerning tweet.
“My dad never did any of these things,” she tweeted. “The microchip in my brain made me say these things, but he was the one who ordered them to chip it at me.”
