In an unexpected development, Holly Hartman, Taryn Manning’s makeup artist, was arrested in West Hollywood for driving Manning’s reported stolen vehicle, a 2004 Chrysler Crossfire. The car had initially been reported stolen over 100 miles away in Palm Springs, though the timeline of the report remains unclear. It is uncertain whether Manning intends to press charges, and the case will be referred to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office for potential criminal charges.
Manning and Hartman have had a tumultuous history, marked by previous incidents that involved law enforcement. In 2012, Manning was arrested in New York City, facing misdemeanor charges for allegedly assaulting Hartman at the Dream Downtown Hotel. The accusations included punching, kicking, choking, and slamming Hartman against the floor. In 2015, Hartman attempted to obtain a restraining order against Manning following multiple alleged attacks, but the request was denied by a judge.
Manning, known for her roles in “Orange Is the New Black” and “8 Mile,” has recently attracted attention for various incidents, including a viral video discussing her relationship with a married man and public statements in support of convicted rapist Danny Masterson.
