Ariel Winter

Ariel Winter sent a very public message to her mother ... she's STANDING STRONG with her big sister and temporary guardian Shanelle Gray

In a major show of support, Ariel clutched her sister's hand as they walked into a hair salon in Los Angeles earlier today ... and, of course, it was all captured by the paparazzi.

Ariel's mother has accused Shanelle of using the "Modern Family" actress as a "stepping stone" to launch her own acting career.  She also claims Shanelle might blow Ariel's fortune on herself.

Shanelle claims she's rescuing Ariel from a physically and emotionally abusive mother.

No word on who paid for the trip to the salon.

How about everyone just leave her alone - sh'e 14, going through a major crisis, she doesn't need the whole world to know/comment about it. Come on!

Truth    

MOM IS A BIT NUTS. "STEPPING STONE FOR ACTING". UMM, DOES SHE READ IMDB?? SHANELLE HAS BEEN WORKING AS A PART-TIME ACTRESS AND VOICE OVER/CHARACTER ACTOR SINCE SHE WAS 6. BEST KNOWN FOR RECURRING ROLE ON BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL. K, SHE'S A BIT WACKY HERSELF AND NOT A VERY GOOD ACTRESS OR SINGER BUT SHE DOES GET RELATIVELY CONSISTENT WORK. #TRUTH!!

Rather than go through this mess with guardianship, couldn't she try to become an emancipated minor and "divorce" her parents like Macauley Culkin and other celebrity kids have done?

I think under California law the parents have to agree to the emancipation which explains the Guardianship route. Her father seems to have been absent throughout this - is he still in the picture ?

which one is she? The one on the left or right? The one on the left has to be older than 14 with a body like that. They damn sure didn't make girls like that when I was younger.

Can't believe all the pervs on here, she's 14!!! She's dressed like any other 14 year old you see at the mall! TMZ needs to leave this child alone, she's going through enough stress as it is! This is a private family matter of a minor child, surprised TMZ hasn't hunted down her brother who was also a child actor, he played Pugsley in the Addam's Family movies, for his side of the story! There are laws set in place to protect Ariel's money, so I doubt her sister is using her, she didn't even ask for money when she applied for custody. As for Ariel sleeping with an 18 year old, a judge will look into those allegations at he next court date, seems the mom only said that AFTER she lost custody. If it was my child, he would of been in jail the second I found out!
