Ariel Winter's mother Chrisoula Workman reportedly tried to get a publicist to leak naked pictures of her older daughter Shanelle, after she was granted temporary custody of the 'Modern Family' actress
Ariel Winter's mother reportedly tried to get a Hollywood publicist to create a nude photo scandal.
The 'Modern Family' star's mother Chrisoula Workman - who lost guardianship of her 14-year-old actress daughter amid allegations of physical and emotional abuse last month - allegedly tried to get publicist Jonathan Hay to leak naked pictures of her other daughter Shanelle Workman, 34, who was given temporary custody of Ariel.
The PR guru told gossip website RadarOnline.com: ''Crystal Workman, the mother of Ariel Winter, wanted me to represent her and leak nude photos in the media of her other daughter Shanelle Workman.
''In all my years of being a publicist, I have never seen anyone stoop as low as wanting to sell out and destroy the reputation of her own daughter. Crystal said she wanted the public to see Shanelle for who she really was and smear her daughter in attempts to try and get custody back of Ariel.
''Crystal has called me nonstop in the last 48 hours, trying to get me to leak these pictures. Clearly, Ariel is in the right place with Shanelle and away from her mother.''
Crystal reportedly said she is only trying to do what is best for her daughter Ariel.
She said: ''I love my daughter Ariel and I am trying to make sure she doesn't fall under the wrong influences so she doesn't become the next Lindsay Lohan.''
