Taryn Manning has allegedly been involved in yet another incident with makeup artist Holly Hartman.

The "Orange Is the New Black" actress is accused of head-butting Hartman, putting her in a headlock and spraying Windex in her eyes, according to a report by TMZ. Though Hartman only recently filed a restraining order in Los Angeles, the incident reportedly occurred in New York City in November. 

According to TMZ, Manning allegedly dared Hartman to stab her, saying, "Pick a knife. I'm wearing a white shirt there will be a lot of blood. You will be famous for killing Taryn Manning."

In a statement provided to The Huffington Post, Manning's counsel denied the allegations: 

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. 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.

Manning was arrested in 2012 after allegedly assaulting Hartman, her roommate at the time, in New York City. Reports surfaced that Manning had kicked and punched the makeup artist, though Hartman later dropped the charges. 

The actress was arrested again in 2014 for making criminal threats via text and social media against friend Jeanine Heller, violating a mutual restraining order, according to TMZ. Heller has since been arrested for stalking Manning, and sentenced to six months in jail.
