Taryn Manning accused of violent mistreatment by another close acquaintance
Taryn Manning may be in trouble with the law — again — for violent behavior.
According to Us Weekly, the Orange Is the New Black star is denying all allegations that she attacked her close friend and makeup artist, Holly Hartman.
According to Hartman, she and Manning had a violent altercation in November in which Manning "head-butted her in the face and supposedly sprayed Windex in her eyes before putting her in a headlock."
Manning's legal team denies the entire incident ever happened, saying the two haven't had any contact for months.
Hartman filed a restraining order against Manning, which the court denied, say Manning's lawyers in a statement to Us Weekly.
"The court has already denied the request by Ms. Hartman for a temporary restraining order. The application for the order is suspect because Ms. Manning has had no contact with Ms. Hartman in many months due to Ms. Hartman's actions against Ms. Manning which are currently under criminal investigation in multiple jurisdictions.
"These investigations have long predated these entirely fabricated allegations. Ms. Hartman is under investigation for stalking Ms. Manning and for theft and other crimes. It is clear that Ms. Hartman's camp has leaked these allegations which were not available publically [sic] to elevate her own position and obscure her own wrong doing [sic]," Manning's lawyers claim.
In 2012, Manning was arrested for assaulting Hartman in an NYC hotel. Hartman dropped the charges. Manning has also made headlines for a legal battle with her alleged stalker, Jeanine Heller, who was, at one point, her roommate. Heller claimed she wasn't stalking Manning and was worried by the actress' "dark path."
