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.

right - because that's how bffs act. I hope the DA still presses charges b/c they are both obviously crazy and a danger to others. Btw, it looks like she one the Courtney Love Look-Alike contest.

Just so you all know, I am a close personal friend of Holli's (for over 10 years) and I just got off the phone with her. She has NOT forgiven Taryn...she has NOT officially dropped the charges. Yes they were friends for a few years...but Holli understands that friends don't choke each other - drunk or not - and for the record Taryn was loaded...which is a very common occurance for her but still no excuse! Taryn's lawyer is trying to sweep this under the rug and make it seem like not a big deal. I have seen pictures of Holli after the fact and it is most definitely a big deal. Taryn should not be allowed to get away with this. She is lucky that she lives across the country, that's for damn sure!

From AP:
NEW YORK – Prosecutors say actress Taryn Manning attacked and choked her personal assistant in a New York City hotel room.
The New York Post and Daily News report that Manning was arraigned Friday after an early morning fight the day before with assistant Holliann Hartman inside the Dream Hotel in Chelsea.
Manning was charged with misdemeanor assault.
She spent more than 24 hours locked up before she was released.
The 33-year-old Manning is best known for playing Eminem's ex-girlfriend in the 2002 movie "8 Mile."
Her lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, said Manning and the assistant got into a confrontation but it was not an assault. He said it was "a little misunderstanding between the two."

Manning is due back in court Nov. 13

Taryn Manning is such a bitch. I used to be a fan of hers until she verbally attacked me on IG. Now I know why she doesn't have any fans lol.
