The ongoing Modern Family saga between actress Ariel Winter and her allegedly abusive mother, Chrystal Workman, deepened today. Get a load of this: Ariel's mum wanted to leak nude and risqué photos of her other daughter, Shanelle Workman, to win the favour of the court.
This morning, Chrystal hit back, categorically denying the claims. "I have no naked photos of my daughter," she said. However, in the video above, her phrasing hardly leaves any room for doubt.
Shanelle has been awarded custody over her younger sister Ariel. In an attempt to sway the courts against Shanelle, it has been claimed Chrystal intended to leak some very revealing pictures of her own daughter.
As revealed to RadarOnline, the photos were sent to her publicist, Jonathan Hay, who Chrystal urged to forward them to her legal team. Jonathan, apparently disgusted by the move, contacted the press.
"What are you thinking about the caption?" Chrystal asked her publicist, adding, "Everything on that photo should show since she is trying to steal my child. Yuck".
Jonathan alleges Chrystal wanted to coordinate the photo release in such a way that it had no connection with her.
"In all my years of being a publicist, I have never seen anyone stoop as low as wanting to sell out and destroy the reputation of her own daughter," Jonathan explains.
"Chrystal said she wanted the public to see Shanelle for who she really was and smear her daughter in attempts to try and get custody back of Ariel", he continued.
Even Jonathan agrees, "Ariel is in the right place with Shanelle and away from her mother."
