Taryn Manning ‘stalker arrested’

Taryn Manning’s alleged stalker was arrested on Monday after sending her messages about her “pretty smile”.

The 36-year-old Orange Is the New Black actress has had ongoing legal dramas regarding her former friend Jeanine Heller. Now Jeanine has reportedly violated a restraining order against her by contacting Taryn.

Jeanine contacted the actress via phone and text, according to TMZ who obtained documents regarding the case. They say she often pretended to be someone else in order to successfully get in touch.

The text of the communication apparently included the following:

“I miss you. Don’t ruin your pretty smile with cigarettes. This is your fairy godmother," as well as, "Why have you tormented me and spread lies ... You said if I died you would celebrate. Well go celebrate. Karma will come," and "I was in the hospital last month. I tried to kill myself. I don’t know why you teamed up to hurt me."

Jeanine is also said to have uploaded hundreds of files to sharing website Reddit, one of which was a “manifesto claiming to outline the history of the relationship between” she and Taryn.

The website claims she was arrested Monday and has had 24 counts of “criminal contempt” plus two of “stalking” charged against her.

Taryn first got a restraining order in late 2014 after complaining in July, following incidents that apparently stemmed from a former friendship between the two women.

However it’s not all doom and gloom for the actress, as she graced the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday.
