Makeup Artist Slashed By Former Partner Days After Filing Restraining Order

A 35-year-old Hollywood makeup artist is recovering in the hospital after being stabbed several times in her home. Allie Shehorn was attacked early in the morning on May 23 at her Shadow Hills home by a man just days after she filed for a restraining order against him, friends said on a GoFundMe page set up to help pay for her medical expenses.

Her friends said she was a victim of domestic violence, and the suspect, whose name has not been shared by police, was arrested and released days before the stabbing. Shehorn has worked as a makeup artist on films like “Rebel Moon,” “Family Switch,” and “Babylon,” according to her IMDB profile.

She had multiple surgeries for her injuries and was in intensive care for several days but has since been moved to another part of the hospital as of Tuesday, according to updates on the GoFundMe page. She was intubated after surgery but was shown without any breathing tubes in photos shared by friends from her hospital room.

“Allie is a remarkable person, full of warmth, kindness, and love,” the GoFundMe page states. “No one deserves to endure such a traumatic experience, especially someone as compassionate and caring as Allie.”

The Los Angeles police and fire departments confirmed that detectives and paramedics responded to reports of a stabbing victim in the Shadow Hills neighborhood just after 4:30 a.m. on May 23. The attacker fled the scene before police arrived, according to law enforcement.

The man who allegedly attacked Shehorn is an actor she met on the set of “Rebel Moon,” according to the GoFundMe post. Her friends described him as a background actor. “I knew him firsthand for two years and am still in shock that this happened. This person was a part of many people’s lives and seemed stable,” her friend Jed Dornoff wrote on the GoFundMe page. “This came as a surprise to me and others who were close to Allie and him.”

On her social media accounts, Shehorn has shared photos of herself working with actors on both small and large film productions, applying makeup and prosthetic features. She also shared images of her intricate sidewalk chalk art.

Dornoff wrote that Shehorn’s alleged attacker was detained by law enforcement in Texas at the Mexican border. The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
