Ariel Winter Babysitter Comes to Defense of Estranged Mother

by at . Comments

We have an update in the ongoing Ariel Winter saga.

With the 14-year old Modern Family actress currently living with her sister - as authorities investigate her mother, Chrystal Workman, regarding charges of abuse - two people close to Winter have spoken out in defense of Workman.

In a new court declaration, an ex-babysitter of Ariel's writes:

"As a former licensed in-home daycare provider trained to recognize abuse, I saw no signs nor did I witness abuse of any kind (sexual, physical, or emotional) against Ariel."

Meanwhile, Chrystal's cousin refers to Workman as "a morally sound, extremely loving and protective parent."

Workman has said this incident stems from her insistence that her daughter NOT date an 18-year old, though other relatives reject Workman's claim that she once walked in on Ariel and her then-boyfriend in bed.

They say Winter is so innocent that her first kiss came on the set of her hit ABC sitcom.

It's a giant mess, especially in light of court transcripts being made public yesterday that detail physical abuse against Workman.

Both parties are due in court for another hearing on November 20.

I honestly think this just Ariel being a "rebel" as her mother claimed. She's dating a 18 yr old and was found in bed with him by her mother. Her mother even tried to forbid her from seeing him. I've seen cases like this on Dr. Phil. Ariel obviously has a strong hatred against her mother right now and this is her way of getting over her anger. I mean I would be so embarrassed if my mom found me in bed with a 18 yr old. This is her way of getting back at her mom. Her mom is obviously trying to keep her grounded before she becomes the next Lindsay Lohan, but as usual teens don't like the interference of their parents.

My 1st question would be : when did she babysit Ariel? The kid's 14 years old now, so it must have been a long time ago as she talks about running a daycare in her home. So any information this babysitter had to give is seriously dated. Just because Ariel wasn't abused as a 4 year old or even a 10 year old doesn't mean she was being abused when she was removed from her mother's care.

NO PARENT STARTS ABUSING ITS CHILD SUDDENLY. ABUSED CHILDREN HAVE BEEN THIS WAY ALL THEIR LIVES. SHE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF!!!! THE FALSE ACCUSATION MAKE TEENS LOOK COLD BLOODED AND HEARTLESS. THIS TANTRUM WILL ONLY GIVE HER NEGATIVE FEEDBACK, AND WILL MAKE REAL ABUSED CHILDREN TO LOOK LIARS!!!!!!!
