We all have those days when we just hate the way we look and wish we could blame someone for it. Lucky for us, we usually aren’t getting photographed by paparazzi on said bad face/body/hair days...
In the wee hours of Thursday morning, however, one celebrity snapped at her makeup artist while at NYC’s Dream Downtown Hotel. Who was it? Someone we wouldn’t want to get in a brawl with — Taryn Manning.
The singer and actress, who starred in 8 Mile and Hustle and Flow, was accused of punching and kicking her makeup artist, Holly Hartman. The brawl went down after the two had spent a lot of time together on the road. Taryn was charged with two misdemeanors — assault in the third degree and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation.
Taryn’s lawyer, famed defense attorney Joe Tacopina, says the whole incident got blown waaaay out of proportion. He tells People that he expects the incident “to be resolved based on a conversation” he had with the victim. Taryn and Holly definitely fought, but they are good friends — in fact, they live together in Los Angeles
Indeed, a source tells Wetpaint Entertainment that Taryn was spotted dining at chic NYC hotspot RSVP on Tuesday night with her publicist and a woman who looked a lot like Holly, and that they all seemed to be in great spirits.
It’s not clear yet whether the DA will drop the charges against Taryn, but yowza! We wouldn’t want to mess up her eyeliner.
