Orange is the New Black actress has been accused of violent ASSAULT

Reports are circulating today that Taryn Manning was involved in a serious altercation with her make-up artist, Holly Hartman. 

According to TMZ, the 37-year-old actress has been accused of attacking Holly, headbutting her as well as putting her in a headlock. 

In scenes that sound like a particularly dark scene from Orange is the New Black, the incident allegedly occurred in Taryn's New York home in November. 

Holly has since filed a restraining order against the actress but her request was subsequently rejected.

"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," Taryn's legal team has since told People magazine. 

In a bizarre twist to this tale, this is not the first altercation between the duo who were one described as lifelong friends. 

Taryn was actually arrested back in 2012 for alleged assault against her supposed pal, though these charges were later dropped.

However, since then there seems to have been an increasing amount of issues developing between the two. 

"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."
