Actress Taryn Manning, best known for playing Pennsatucky in Orange is the New Black, has been accused of becoming embroiled in a vicious fight with her makeup artist, Holly Hartman.
The 37-year-old star allegedly headbutted Hartman before spraying windex in her eyes and putting her in a headlock. TMZ have also reported that Hartman filed a restraining order after the attack, which allegedly happened way back in November in Manning's apartment.
Manning and Hartman are described as longtime friends, but it seems like their relationship is anything but plain sailing and Taryn was previously arrested in 2012 for allegedy assaulting Holly, although the charges were eventually dropped.
The pair have allegedly not seen each other at all since the assault which meant a request for a restraining order has been deemed null and void by the courts. Although Taryn seems to have attacked her friend, the records seem to infer that she is not entirely the guilty party. A statement from the courts reads"
"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 publicly to elevate her own position and obscure her own wrong doing."
In her restraining order, Hartman reportedly claims Manning yelled:
"I'm wearing a white shirt there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning."
A rep for Netflix has declined to comment on the OITNB star's involvement.
