‘Modern Family’ Star Removed From Home

Modern Family actress Ariel Winter’s mother on Wednesday denied abusing her daughter after the 14-year-old filed for a restraining order and moved out of the house. A judge last month issued temporary guardianship of Winter to her sister, Shanelle Gray, and ordered Chris Workman not contact her daughter until further notice. Winter, who plays Alex Dunphy on the hit show, accused her mother of “ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name-calling, personal insults about minor and minor’s weight, attempts to ‘sexualize’ minor, deprivation of food, etc).”
