Makeup artist Holly Hartman filed a restraining order against Orange Is the New Black’s Taryn Manning Thursday, after an alleged violent incident between the pair in November 2015. Though Manning’s lawyers deny the incident even happened, according to TMZ, Hartman claims the actress “headbutted her in the face, whipped her with a wet towel, sprayed Windex in her eyes and mouth and put her in a headlock” at Manning’s New York City home. During the fight, Manning allegedly declared, “Pick a knife. I’m wearing a white shirt there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning.” Manning’s lawyers told 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.” Manning was previously arrested in November 2014 for making criminal threats against former friend Jeanine Heller. Those charges were subsequently dropped.
