A source told the outlet that the 36-year-old former Nickelodeon star and her beau have decided “sometime in 2021.”
However, despite the change in their relationship status, they are still committed to each other.

“They are still together as a couple, but they have put the engagement and wedding planning on hold,” the insider said.
The man continued, “They’ve been through ups and downs together and personally and realized they could have moved on quickly, but they love each other and are still committed to each other.”
The two have reportedly changed their relationship plans, but are still “taking their relationship seriously.”
“Now they wear rings to show their loyalty to each other and as a symbol of learning and growing together, but rings are not everything to them,” the acquaintance noted.

Amanda and Paul are “busy but working together a lot,” said a source of the pair, who recently released music together.
“Amanda looks amazing and has been through a lot of difficult and important experiences that have helped make her the incredible woman she is. She’s sober, killing it and doing better than ever,” the post added.
As for Paul, he’s “in law school after ten years in health care and doing well.”
Staying Strong: Despite the change in their relationship status, they are still committed to each other
Amanda originally announced her engagement to Michael on Valentine’s Day 2020.
At the time, they had only been dating for a couple of months after meeting in rehab.
They briefly called off their engagement before reconciling soon after.
And earlier this year, the two had a public spat in which Bynes accused Paul of relapse.
Afterward, she took to social media to apologize for the accusation. She also told E News: “I thought Paul had relapsed, but I was wrong. He drug tested me with a drug test kit I bought at CVS. A drug test for all substances gave a negative result. Paul and I stay together. I am very sorry for the confusion I have caused.’
