Modern Family Star Ariel Winter Centre Of Abuse Allegations
It has been reported that teenage Modern Family actress Ariel Winter, has moved out of her mother, Crystal Workman’s home, after allegations of abuse have emerged.
According to People magazine, a Los Angeles judge has removed 14 year-old Ariel from her mother’s care, after she was accused of both physically and emotionally abusing her. The court is also thought to have declared that Workman should have no contact with Ariel until further notice.
Court documents are said to reveal how Workman hit her daughter on numerous occasions, whilst also shockingly depriving her of food for long periods of time, as well as verbally abusing her with disgusting comments about her weight.
Meanwhile, Ariel is now said to be living in temporary custody with her older sister, 34 year-old Shanelle Gray, who is also an actress, once starring in ABC TV show One Life To Live, whilst a follow-up court hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday, November 20th.
Amidst the abuse allegations Workman has claimed her innocence, insisting she has proof that the described abuse never occurred, however it seems unlikely that the courts will take these claims seriously.
