The 8 Mile actress was arrested in New York City last Thursday (October 11) for allegedly punching and kicking her 23-year-old make-up artist Holliann Hartman.
Manning has now been charged with misdemeanor assault and choking for the incident, according to the New York Daily News.
The star's manager Joe Tacopina has since described the altercation as a minor dispute that was blown of proportion.
Tacopina described Hartman as a "longtime friend" of Manning and someone who is "part of the Manning family", but admitted that the pair have had "some personal issues".
Manning is due back in court for her next hearing in November.
She is most well-known for her roles in Crazy/Beautiful, Crossroads and in Eminem's film 8 Mile.
