Oh, brother. It’s becoming harder and harder to keep up with this story about Ariel Winter and her mother, Chrystal Workman. Celebuzz obtained a police report revealing that Workman found the 14-year-old Modern Family star in bed with her 18-year-old boyfriend.
“The informant (Workman) said the guest bedroom door was left wide open when she walked in,” the police report reads. “According to the informant, Ariel and [Name Redacted] have been boyfriend/girlfriend for approximately 5 months. She has attempted to break them up because of their age difference.”
Winter asked a judge to temporarily place her in her sister, Shanelle Gray‘s care. According to TMZ, Workman lost custody of her older daughter twenty years ago for the same reasons.
“I filed charges against him because legally he is an adult and if he wants to engage in adult behavior with a minor than he should also be ready to suffer adult consequences for his actions and poor judgment,” Workman told Celebuzz. “I will not apologize for protecting my daughter, as she means the world to me and I will always be there for her and I will always protect her to the best of my ability until the day I die.”
Court papers, filed October 3rd, reveal Winter’s allegations against Workman which include “ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name-calling, personal insults about minor and minor’s weight, attempts to ‘sexualize’ minor, deprivation of food, etc.) for an extended period of time.”
However, authorities have serious doubts about allegations made by the mother of 14-year-old Modern Family actress Ariel Winter TMZ has learned because they think the mother is making up stories of an illicit sexual relationship to save face after she was stripped of custody.
Court sources tell us the first time Chrystal mentioned ANYTHING about an illicit relationship was during the guardianship hearing last month, when she began ranting in court and called the guardianship lawyer a “moron.”
