[Gossip] UPDATED: Ariel Winter's Mother Denies Calling Her Fat
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.09.2012

UPDATE: TMZ caught up with Ariel Winter's mother Chrystal Workman in Los Angeles today and asked her about her court battle over custody of Ariel. Workman said, "I love Ariel. I want to work things out, and I want her to come home."

You can see the video at the above link.

ORIGINAL: The mother of Modern Family actress Ariel Winter has denied emotionally abusing Winter, including calling her fat. TMZ reports that Chrystal Workman has filed a declaration with the court and said that the claims made against her by Ariel's older sister Shanelle--that she emotionally and physically abused Ariel--are false.

The declaration states, "The allegations in [Shanelle's] petition are untrue. I have never put Ariel down or told her that she is overweight." It goes on to say that Workman constantly told Ariel that she is "smart, beautiful and talented....Since birth, I have loved and cared for Ariel in all her physiological and emotional needs. I have always been her caretaker and looked out for her best interests."

Chrystal further claims that Shanelle, who was awarded temporary guardianship due to the allegations, is using Ariel as a "stepping stone to further her own career as an actress." She notes that Ariel makes $75,000 a week from Modern Family and claims Shanelle is likely to use the money to buy herself a new home.

TMZ also reports that Workman is telling friends that her tirade against Ariel's guardianship attorney during a hearing, in which she called him a "moron," was an emotional reaction because she was upset over what she called lies being told in court about her parenting. A source close to her said, "If someone were trying to take your child that you loved more than anything else away from you, wouldn't you react in a similar way?"

Chrystal apologized shortly after she insulted the attorney. Chrystal is also reportedly telling friends that she didn't report her claims that she caught Ariel, 14, in bed with her eighteen year-old boyfriend because she wanted to handle it privately but felt she had no choice once the allegations game out.
