Chrystal Workman is the mother of 14-year old Modern Family star Ariel Winter.
In light of claims of physical and emotional abuse against her child, which have led to a judge ordering Winter into the custody of her sister, Workman has issued a statement that attempts to explain the situation.
"I love my daughter very much. I would never abuse her in anyway and I have always tried my best to always protect her and do what is right for her," writes Workman.
So, from where did these allegations stem?
