Taryn Manning was reportedly forced to invoke an order of protection against a former friend earlier this year, and now that woman has been arrested for violating that order, according to E! News.
The Orange Is The New Black star reportedly told a judge in July that her former friend, Janine Heller, was cyber-stalking her and that she had tried to make the actress paranoid with stories of how her friends were selling stories about her to the media. Heller was arrested on a charge of fourth degree stalking but was later released on the condition that she not have any contact with Manning.
“The arrest followed an investigation by members of the New York County District Attorney’s Office after it was reported that Ms. Heller had engaged in a course of conduct intended to cause reasonable fear of material harm to the physical health, safety and welfare of Taryn Manning,” Manning’s lawyer told E! News.
According to new reports, Heller violated the order by emailing and calling the actress and was arrested again on Tuesday morning.
Heller allegedly told the New York Post in August that she and Manning had a physical relationship and that Manning is the one doing the harassing online and via text.
“We had a physical relationship. There’s a mix of sexual e-mails and harassing e-mails and images. I have no reason to embellish anything or lie,” she said.
