Ariel Winter's Mom Denies Non-Existent Sexual Abuse Allegations

September 13, 2013 09:28:45 GMT


In her latest bid to regain the lost custody over her actress daughter, Ariel Winter's mom Chrisoula "Crystal" Workman made shocking new claims in legal documents she filed on Thursday, September 12 to try to get her daughter back. Workman adamantly denied allegations of "sexual abuse or sexual molestation" which she claims her 15-year-old TV star daughter has accused her of.

However, the denial is baffling considering the "Modern Family" cast member never made any allegations of sexual abuse against her mother, but rather only physical and emotional abuse. Perhaps Workman was alluding to an accusation made by Winter's boyfriend, fellow actor Cameron Palatas, who said in his deposition that Workman had one time wanted him to sleep in Winter's bed.
