  • TARYN MANNING'S LAWYER INSISTS SHE'S THE VICTIM

  • Fri, 21 Nov 2014 01:00:00 EST

    Taryn Manning's lawyer insists that her recent arrest was the result of false allegations made by former friend. The attorney released a statement to address the Orange is the New Black star's arrest for allegedly violating a restraining order by sending threatening texts.

    The statement reads, "In response to a reported arrest of Ms. Manning, please note that the District Attorney's Office investigated an allegation of a violation of an order of protection. The District Attorney declined to prosecute Ms. Manning and the arrest was voided. The allegation was false. It is unfortunate that additional false allegations by an individual convicted of violating orders of protection intended to protect Ms. Manning are facilitated by purported news organizations to perpetuate the harassment of Ms. Manning exponentially. Ms. Manning is a law abiding person who has respect for the law and the privilege of her profession. The fact that there are no criminal charges against Ms. Manning with regard to the purported allegations against her is a clear demonstration of her innocence. Ms. Manning will as always maintain the high road. She wishes no contact from Ms. Heller and has had to spend great sums to hire security for her protection."

    • TMZ is claiming that the NYPD has not yet voided the arrest as of Thursday morning (November 20th.)
    • Taryn's former friend, Jeanine Heller, has been arrested several times for stalking. The initial charges were brought against her last July for allegedly sending hundreds of texts, emails, and phone calls over a few months.

  • Bill ended the conversation by saying that they didn't think AP would bring up those questions and that they should call their higher-ups immediately to tell them not to include the footage in the final interview.

Ashton continued, "So as long as journalist are interested and willing to print half-truths as facts...Yes we should question the source. To be clear I speak for myself not @Uber. This should be fun...Here comes the part where journalists explain why they should be exempt from ridicule and judgment and probing...U r all right and I'm on the wrong side of this ultimately. I just wish journalists were held to the same standards as public figures. GoodForRatings #TrafficSpike #WelcomeToShockJournalism."
    CNET is reporting that Ashton is actually an investor in Uber.
