If the Ariel Winter drama hasn’t left you deeply confused and wanting to bash your own head against a Modern Family box-set, then you deserve a medal. Essentially, the comedy actress is at war with her own mother after she filed a police report on October 6, 2012, saying that she found her daughter and boyfriend Cameron Palatas in bed together despite a 4-year age difference.
Now it has emerged, via the New York Daily News, that Ariel and Cameron ended their courtship “way before” the young actress made the headlines last week. “They have been broken up for several months…It is really unfortunate Ariel's mom has drug Cameron through the mud here. Everything her mom has said has been untrue”. So why would Ariel’s mother lie about something like that? Well, we’re not the wiser, but she’s sticking by her original story, saying, “Yes, I stand by (the police report)…I can’t say anything more. This is a very sad situation. Just pray for my family.” A Los Angeles judge handed temporary guardianship of Ariel to her older sister Shanelle Gray last month, so this is likely to have something to do with the drama ensuing in the household.
In a statement released last week, Workman said she was forced to intervene in her daughter’s love life, “My fourteen year old daughter has been dating an eighteen and a half year old man and when I caught them engaging in behavior that I feel my daughter is too you mentally and physically to understand and fully grasp I put a stop to it immediately,” she said. No doubt we’ll have more soon.
