After breaking off her engagement to Annie Cline a few months ago, certain rumors started circulating that Taryn Manning is already in a new relationship.
Let’s find out if this is true, or if it’s another false Hollywood alarm.
Taryn Manning is a famous American actress and singer. Her best-known projects include the role of Tiffany Doggett in the Netflix hit series “Orange is the New Black”, Cherry in “Sons of Anarchy”, Nola in “Hustle and Flow” and Janeane in “8 Mile”.
Taryn’s acting career started in the 1990s when she made small appearances in a few movies and TV shows such as “The Practice”, “Get Real”, “Speedway Junky”, “NYPD Blue” and “Popular”.
Interestingly, her role in the TV show “Boston Republic” was written especially for her.
Her film debut was in the romantic drama “Crazy and Beautiful”, followed by the film “Crossroads”.
Manning’s first major role in Hollywood was the role of Nola, a prostitute in the 2005 film Hustle & Flow.
The director of the film said he saw the picture of Taryn in a photo album and was immediately convinced that he wanted her to play the part of Nola, she was exactly as she imagined she would look.
Her singing career started in 2001 when Manning auditioned for a musical reality TV show called “Popstar”. In 2003, she and her brother formed a band – Boomkat.
The band achieved some success by signing a deal with a major label owned by American Idol producer Randy Jackson, but unfortunately the deal fell through.
After that, Manning signed to DreamWorks Records and worked with them from 2002 to 2004.
In October 2008, she played several gigs throughout LA. One of her famous performances was at the NOHO Scene Festival in venues such as Viper Room and Hotel Café.
Her most recent single was released in August 2020, a track called “Time Wasted”.
Is Taryn Manning in a relationship?
The answer to this question is a bit complicated.
This is because after the divorce from her fiancé Anne Cline, the actress reported that she had found a new partner.
However, many believe that this story is not true and that she only said it to give the impression that she has moved on.
The reason she broke off the engagement to Anne is that things didn’t go as well as everyone thought. Taryn explained that she said ‘yes’ to the engagement because Anne placed her on the spot and proposed to her in front of a packed bar of cameras.
This is probably also why the actress never formally announced their marriage or even posted on social media about their relationship.
After spending some time together after the engagement, Taryn realized she didn’t enjoy their relationship and decided to call it quits.
As a reminder, the two became engaged in June 2021. Anne proposed to Manning in Panama City during her concert at a bar.
Anne jumped off the stage and got on her knees to ask the question. Taryn later told TMZ it was “the easiest YES” she’d ever said.
