Make up artist Holly Hartman has accused Orange is the New Black actress Taryn Manning of beating her up.
Hartman filed to get a restraining order against Taryn following a series of alleged brawls, the most recent reportedly occurring at the actress's New York apartment.
The documents, as seen by TMZ, allege that the 27-year-old make-up artist was head butted by the 37-year-old actress in the face, and that Manning whipped her with a wet towel, sprayed Windex in her eyes and mouth and put her in a headlock.
Hartman told TMZ that Manning said, "Pick a knife. I'm wearing a white shirt, there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning."
However the restraining order was denied by the judge as the incident happened in New York and she filed the documents in LA.
Taryn's legal team told TMZ that Hartman has not been in contact with Taryn in many months and that it is Hartman who is "under investigation for stalking Ms. Manning and for theft and other crimes".
They accuse Hartman of attempting to "obscure her own wrong doing."
In December 2012 the actress was also charged with assault in the third degree and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation, as reported by TMZ, following a brawl between the two in a hotel in New York.
Associated Press reported that Manning was locked up for 24 hours but her lawyer said that the incident had been a "misunderstanding".
