The family drama continues!
A judge ruled Tuesday that Modern Family star Ariel Winter will remain in the care of her older sister Shanelle, after the actress claimed her mother Chrisoula Workman physically and emotionally abused her.
The Department of Children and Family Services reportedly found evidence of emotional abuse, but could not confirm any sort of alleged physical abuse. Due to their findings, they recommended that Winter's older sister be granted permanent guardianship.
Workman's attorney argued that her eldest daughter was "too young" and "has her own family to deal with" as reasons she is an unfit guardian, as well as insinuating that their only interest in caring for the 14-year-old was because of perceived financial gain.
A trial date has yet to be set to settle permanent custody arrangements.
Such a sad situation!
Do you think Ariel or her mom is right?
