Ariel Winter - Ariel Winter's Mother To Sue Over Blog Post Comment

While 14-year-old Modern Family Ariel Winter remains entangled in a custody battle, her Mother is suing Mathew Borlenghi - a soap opera actor and acting teacher - who commented on an L.A Times piece. 

Borlenghi's comment on the L.A. Times website implied Workman calling the cops to protect her daughter was "a total falsehood. It said, "The mother is grasping and clawing to find a way not to lose her money-maker, and hide the fact that she is an abusive monster," and continues, "Having spent time with her, and seeing the way she acted adoringly towards the boy, these accusations are disgusting, just as she is." Workman says in the suit, as a result of the posting, she suffered a loss of reputation as well as "shame, mortification and hurt feeling," for which she now wants damages to be determined by the court. The L.A. Times, however, is not a defendant. Given the propensity for Workman to sue based on things written on the internet, we're going to be very careful. 

Winter, 14, was temporarily removed from the custody of her mother Chrisoula "Chrystal" Workman by a court in October, and her sister Shanelle Gray, a 34-year-old mother of two, was given temporary guardianship. Ariel, who has been acting since the age of seven, plays the character of Alex Dunphy, an intelligent teenager, in the critically acclaimed TV show.
