Yikes, looks like there’s some trouble for Taryn Manning! The actress has been accused of assaulting her makeup artist — and a restraining order has been filed. But there’s two sides to every story, and Taryn is contesting the allegations. Read on to get the scoop.
OMG, did Taryn Manning, 37, brutally attack and scarily threaten her makeup artist?! That’s what Holly Hartman is alleging, and her accusations against the Orange Is The New Black star are frightening. Holly is so terrified, in fact, that she’s even filed for a restraining order. But Taryn has a story to tell, too…
Holly filed the papers to keep Taryn away from her after claims of “several” attacks, the most recent of which happened in November, according to TMZ. This particular assault took place at the actress’ apartment in New York City, and involved headbutting, whipping with a towel and the spraying of Windex into Holly’s eyes and mouth, the makeup artist alleges.
The restraining order has been denied for now, partly because this alleged altercation went down in New York City and the documents were filed in Los Angeles. The 37-year-old reportedly told Holly to, “Pick a knife. I’m wearing a white shirt there will be a lot blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning.” Yikes!
But Taryn isn’t rolling over and letting Holly have this one — she’s gotten her own legal team on board, and they’re saying the restraining order request is “suspect,” the site reports. Actually, “[Holly] is under investigation for stalking Ms. Manning and for theft and other crimes,” Taryn’s lawyers explain. Those close to Taryn tell the site that she’s actually planning to file a claim against Holly, who then decided to preemptively ask for the restraining order.
