This is just too sad!
14 year-old Ariel Winter, Modern Family's book-smart star whose sarcastic humor cracks like a whip, has apparently left her home, NOT because she wanted to live a fancy-free, adult lifestyle with her 18 year-old boyfriend…
But because she was ordered to after a judge determined that the emotional and physical abuse allegations concerning her mother were serious enough to take action!
At an October 3rd hearing, a judge ordered that Ariel be removed from the care of her mother Crystal Workman, and granted Ariel's sister Shanelle Workman temporary guardianship. Crystal was also told to stay 100 yards away from her daughter for the foreseeable future.
AND what's even more distressing, is that this is not the first occasion where abuse allegations were filed against Crystal! Almost 20 years prior, Shanelle was reportedly also removed from her mother's care and was placed into foster care for two years…
and she never returned to her mother!
We are SO glad that Ariel is out of what seems to be a horrible situation and that she's at least with a family member who can relate.
Ariel's got ridiculously grand things in her future — we just feel it in our bones — and now she can focus on her inevitably AWEsome career rather than dealing with devastating family issues.
