Ariel Winter Mom Abuse

The ‘Modern Family’ star has been under the custody of her sister Shanelle after a judge found their mom an unfit guardian. Now, Ariel’s mom is trying to leak naked pics of Shanelle in a bid to get custody back — but experts say her plan will backfire.

Poor Ariel Winter — her real-life family drama gets uglier by the day. She has been under custody of her sister Shanelle Workman since October after a guardianship hearing found their mom Crystal Workman an unfit parent, but their mom is doing everything she can to regain custody — even by releasing naked pics of her own daughter.

According to, Crystal contacted Hollywood publicist Jonathan Hay in order to “leak” risque pics of her oldest daughter in a bid to prove she’s an unfit legal guardian.

But this spiteful move will only prove Ariel and Shanelle’s point that Crystal is emotionally abusive.

“Crystal’s plan to release risque pictures of Shanelle, who currently has temporary guardianship of Ariel, is going to backfire on her, in a major way,” a source close to the case told

“A child custody investigator has been assigned to the case and this is something that will be looked into extensively,” the source added.
