It’s been a long time coming and it’s finally done.
After three years of being estranged from her reportedly abusive mother Chrystal Workman, Ariel Winter is officially emancipated.
The overjoyed 17-year-old revealed the great news to the world on her Twitter early Friday afternoon and thanked a couple of people in the process.
“I am now officially emancipated!!! I’m really lucky I have an amazing support system and lovely people in my life who have given me the support and guidance to have been given this wonderful opportunity. Most importantly I want to thank @shanelle_gray and my father for their special support regarding this matter, I really couldn’t have done it without them. Thank you to all of my family, friends, and fans who have supported me through all of my endeavors in life, and have encouraged me. Thank you for making my life so special! I can’t wait to embark on my new adventures. ├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬Å xo”
Emancipating yourself from your family or even just a parental figure is emotionally exhausting.
We’re so glad Ariel was able to surround herself with supportive people and loved ones during this time.
