This is like the family from hell!
Ariel Winter, who's been spotted with nothing but a smile on her face since her sister Shanelle Gray was granted custody of her, is hearing from her mother in the news again.
The Modern Family actress's mother Chrystal Workman has filed some unusual legal documents in which we guess she hopes to win custody of her daughter back.
She claims her daughter has made accusations against her of "sexual abuse or sexual molestation."
Here's the mother's response against these claims:
"I adamantly deny these accusations."
The bizarre part of this is that this is the first time we've ever heard of any allegations of sexual abuse - since these issues were definitely not raised in court. From our knowledge the allegations that Ariel made against her mother were strictly physical and emotional abuse.
Ariel's former boyfriend Cameron Palatas said previously in his deposition that Ariel's mother "had wanted [him] to sleep in Ariel's bed", but we're not sure if that is what the mother is referencing.
The mother Chrystal Workman also claims that her oldest daughter who has custody of Ariel now is the reason that she, the mother, was diagnosed with cancer!
Here's what Chrystal said:
“I believe I got cancer was from the stress of the situation Shanelle put me through of missing my child when she was not there, of going–Shanelle has no idea what hell I went through when she wasn’t there.”
We guess all charges have to be tried in a court of law, but it seems to us that Ariel Winter's mother will do or say anything possible to gain custody of her daughter back.
