Taryn Manning's Victim

We Made Up

We Love Each Other

Exclusive Details

The woman Taryn Manning allegedly beat to a pulp wants to drop all charges against her ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us ... Taryn and Holly Hartman have been very close for 5 years. In addition to working as Taryn's makeup artist, Holly and her 2 dogs live with Taryn and the two women even vacation together.

We're told last night they were partying late, and came back to the Dream hotel -- where Lindsay allegedly hit the guy while driving -- and they were "very drunk."

The two started arguing and we're told at around 2 AM it started getting physical, when Taryn allegedly struck Holly in the face with a closed fist, kicked her in the face and torso (Taryn is into karate, so that's gotta hurt) and slammed her head against the floor and wall.

Taryn was in court today on criminal charges of assault and obstruction of breathing or blood circulation.

But Taryn's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, tells TMZ that he spoke with Holly, who indicated she did not want to press charges ... and he told the judge this as well. Tacopina says Holly told him she and Taryn love each other very much and she wants this whole thing to just go away.

It's unclear what the D.A. will do.

By the way ... Taryn had a big role on "Sons of Anarchy," playing Cherry, the girlfriend of the character played by Johnny Lewis. You'll recall, Lewis died last month, after brutally killing his landlady and her cat.

Is the accused's attorney allowed to talk to the victim? Isn't that interfering with a material witness or something like that? When my friend got beat up by her hubby, his lawyer had to talk to her lawyer. She was told it was illegal for his lawyer to contact her directly.

She has a really bad case of meth face.

Look at the bruising on her throat. See how it encompasses her neck, without evident finger marks? She wasn't "just" struck in the neck, she was put in a full choke-hold. Tacopina represented confessed strangler Joran Van Der Sloot. No wonder Manning sought him out. Let's hope the NYPD had enough time alone with Hartman to discuss how she can escape an abusive partner, but I'm afraid Manning isn't finished yet.

Another got high, did something stupid, realized the next day and phoned Harvey for damage control.

TMZ these stories are sooooo boring and repetitive. What's up with all these type stories and arrests, fights. This used to be a good site about entertainment. blahhhhhh

It is just me or is this a new low for TMZ writing.
'Lindsay allegedly hit the guy while driving -- and they were "very drunk."'
Who is 'the guy'?? Who was drunk? the guy and them? It sounds like Taryn opened a can of video game beat down on the chick. She's the man in the relationship so she is no better than Chris Brown.
