Taryn Manning, best known for her role as Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett in the Netflix series Orange is the New Black,stands accused of allegedly attacking her makeup artist in her apartment in New York.

It's uncertain what Holly Hartman was doing at Taryn Manning's apartment, but legal documents obtained by People magazine claim Manning allegedly headbutted Hartman, sprayed windex in her eyes, and put her in a headlock.

Hartman filed for a restraining order against Taryn Manning, but a judge denied it.

"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," Hartman's legal counsel said in a statement. "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."

Taryn Manning allegedly attacked Holly Hartman back in 2012, too, but those charges were dropped. At that time the two women described themselves as "longtime friends."

In filing for her restraining order, Holly Hartman alleges Taryn Manning yelled, "I'm wearing a white shirt there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning."

Does something seem a little off here?

A rep for Netflix hasn't yet responded to People's request for comment.

It will definitely be interesting to learn the real scoop in this situation.

In addition to Orange is the New Black, Taryn Manning has also appeared in 8 Mile and Crazy/Beautiful.
