Orange is The New Black star, Taryn Manning may be known for her portrayal of “Pennsatucky” Doggett on the hit show, but it seems Taryn may have some legal issues of her own, after accusing a former friend of stalking her online.
The 35-year-old actress has been forced to get a restraining order against her former friend, who has been allegedly harassing the OITNB star with e-mails and phone calls.
Manning’s friend, Heller was arrested on Wednesday and was taken New York criminal court for stalking of the fourth degree, although she was later released.
Manning’s lawyer talked about the arrest in statement: “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.”
Heller soon tweeted and then deleted her reaction to the statement: “Don’t believe the lies. #truth will come to light”
Taryn of course noticed this and soon tweeted her response to Heller’s actions.
“Someone finally noticed. Tweets deleted. #guilty”
Ouch! This sounds like it will get worse before it gets any better.
