Taryn Manning is getting ahead of an upcoming report that will claim that she's struggling with sobriety by admitting that the allegation is indeed true.
The "Orange is the New Black" star says she's hit "rock bottom," but is getting help. She's also not ashamed of it.
The outlet -- it's not known which one -- is currently working on an item that discusses Taryn's struggle with sobriety. On Monday, the actress wanted to let her fans know that the report will actually have some truth to it.
"I am truly grateful for what some may call hitting rock bottom," she said in a statement to TMZ. "Some days it sucks and some days it sucks worse. I am not ashamed of this obstacle because I have accepted that it is okay to not be okay."
The actress isn't in rehab and has no plans to go, especially based off her busy schedule, but she says she surrounds herself with sober friends and "other safe outlets." Some of those safe outlets include her "OITNB" co-stars.
"I've never felt more accepted, forgiven, and supported than during this period of my life," she said. "This is not easy."
Taryn's life hasn't always been a picnic. In 2012, she was charged with attacking and choking her personal assistant.
Earlier this year, she sued New York City for $10 million for "false imprisonment." In the lawsuit, she claimed she was falsely arrested in November 2014, and she accused of threatening the person who she says had been stalking her.
The arrest came in the wake of a meeting Taryn had with her attorney and cops over allegations that the actress was sending her former roommate Janine Heller threatening text messages that violated an order of protection. The "Orange is the New Black" star claims that Janine was actually the one stalking her, demonstrated later by Janine's summer 2015 sentence of six months in jail for violating a conditional discharge by continuously texting Taryn.
Taryn claimed that she was placed in a holding cell and was kept in custody for hours until the DA's office issued a formal declination of prosecution, and that the NYPD then leaked information about this arrest to the media.
