In Actual Depressing News, Ariel Winter From Modern Family Allegedly Got Abused By Her Mother

By  | 

Like everyone else from a dysfunctional family, I relate to  Modern Family episodes almost every single week. Even if my grandfather's not dating Sofia Vergara, I still identify with the chaos of the Dunphy Family. And as a middle child, I especially relate to their middle child  Alex Dunphy.

However we just learned from TMZ that Ariel Winter, the actress who plays Alex Dunphy on the show, is actually experiencing some real life family drama.

Ariel Winter, the 14-year-old actress who plays Alex Dunphy on “Modern Family,” has been removed from her home by a judge in the wake of serious allegations of physical and emotional abuse by her mother … court sources tell TMZ…Court sources tell us … on October 3rd, after a guardianship hearing, a judge determined the allegations that Ariel was being physically and emotionally abused by her mother Crystal Workman were serious enough that the judge placed Ariel in a temporary guardianship with her older sister Shanelle Workman. Our sources tell us … mama Crystal was ordered to stay 100 yards away from Ariel.

Right now this still sounds like a bunch of allegations from a source and we hope for Ariel's sake that it's not true. She might be a celebrity, but at the end of the day she's still just a 14-year-old girl.  So regardless if these rumors turn out to be true or not, we hope she's in a safe place with people who love her and care for her.
