"Modern Family" Star

Authorities SCOFF

at Ariel Winter's Mom

11/9/2012 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1108_chrystal_workman_ariel_winter_articleAuthorities have serious doubts about allegations made by the mother of 14-year-old "Modern Family" actress Ariel Winter ... TMZ has learned -- because they think the mother is making up stories of an illicit sexual relationship to save face after she was stripped of custody. 

TMZ broke the story ... a judge determined allegations that Chrystal Workman was physically and emotionally abusing Ariel were so serious, he awarded temporary custody to Ariel's older sister -- and ordered Chrystal to stay 100 yards away from her young daughter.

Law enforcement sources tell us they're not buying Chrystal's claim Ariel was involved in a sexual relationship with an 18-year-old boy, largely because the mom never went to cops until AFTER she lost custody on October 3 -- even though she claims the affair's been going on since the beginning of summer.

Court sources tell us the first time Chrystal mentioned ANYTHING about an illicit relationship was during the guardianship hearing last month ... when she began ranting in court and called the guardianship lawyer a "moron."

We're told she testified about a specific incident on Sept. 24, saying ... "I caught my daughter with her boyfriend in bed -- she's 14. He's 18 and I threw him out and I broke them up."

Due, in no small part, to the timing of Chrystal's testimony ... one law enforcement source tells us they don't believe there was ever a sexual relationship between Ariel and the boy.

TMZ has had absolutely nothing to report these last few days. They cant keep up with interesting stories everyday so we are held hostage to their stories about Loser Lohan every time she picks her nose. The people that are in reality shows ("Bsketball Wives or whatever) are not "stars" but they are the filler until Loser Lohan feeds tmz some more "drama' on her pathetic life for a paycheque from Levine so she can buy more drugs. When she finally o.d.s TMZ will have nothing left.

You can bet there WAS a sexual relationship between them. And further, perhaps the guardianship attorney WAS A MORON. I see millions of that type swirling around me all the time and they aren't just attorneys. These are scary times and 14 year old girls do attract 18 year old boys and have sex with them. It's likely!!!!

What a piece of work and horrid excuse for a mother! Chrystal Workman gives money-grubbing stage mothers stealing the money from their performing children a bad name.

The authorities were onto Chrystal 20 years ago when they removed her older daughter from that abusive home. So it stands to reason no sane welfare professionals will believe a word from Chrystal's lying mouth.

Fortunately the older sister is sane, has kids of her own and a stable home environment for Ariel Winter, who will be safe there.

Crystal was 100% okay with the relationship until her daughter got in touch with her sister Shanelle. Shanelle has been trying to save Ariel for over a year. I can tell you if you knew this woman, you would know she makes Dina Lohan look like mother of the year.

No sexual relationship between the two? Lol. Just look at his instagram or twitter, they have pictures together. "His" being Cameron Palatas. He is going to be 19 in 3 months and is telling Ariel a 14 year old he loves her and so on. Talk about creep.

As for the Mother care less about her. But look into that relationship, between Ariel Cameron Palatas dont sweep it under the rug cause her mother is a nut case.
