Well, this just get weirder. A couple of days after Ariel Winter's mother was accused of abusing the Modern Family star, Chrystal Workman has released a statement firstly denying the allegations but also accusing her daughter of making up the stories!
Workman insists she did not abuse the young television star, and that Ariel has been making up stories because she was caught with an 18-year-old boy. "I love my daughter very much. I would never abuse her in anyway and I have always tried my best to always protect her and do what is right for her," read the statement. "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 young mentally and physically to understand and fully grasp I put a stop to it immediately." Workman doesn't identify the boyfriend, though says she filed a report with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department "because legally he is an adult and if he wants to engage in adult behavior with a minor than [sic] he should also be ready to suffer adult consequences for his actions." In the report, Chrystal claims she walked in on Ariel and her boyfriend in bed, in the guest room of their house, on September 24, 2012.
It's since been discovered that the report wasn't filed until 2 weeks after the alleged incident, 5 days after Chrystal lost custody of Ariel. Hmmm. Ariel plays Alex Dunphy on the award winning sitcom Modern Family.
