"Modern Family" star Ariel Winter is in a "much better situation" now that she's away from her mother and living with her older sister ... this according to one of Ariel's closest friends.

TMZ spoke with Sterling Beaumon -- a fellow child star who met Ariel on the set of a Nintendo commercial a few years ago. He also starred as a young Ben Linus on "Lost."

Beaumon tells us he's still very tight with Ariel -- and has had extensive conversations with the 14-year-old actress since a judge removed her from her mother's home and named her older sister Shanelle as her temporary guardian.

"Everything is good with her," Sterling said ... "She's in a much better situation now."

He adds, "I actually know her sister as well ... her sister is a wonderful girl, woman actually ... great person. "

When asked about allegations that Ariel's mother Chrystal has abused the actress both mentally and physically ... Sterling said, "I can say that [Ariel is] not lying ... there's no reason for her to lie about something like this."

While he wouldn't say if he saw any of the alleged abuse firsthand, Sterling added, "She's in a great situation now."

Kinda funny that the bitch mom said she blocked statutory rape, but here her boyfriend is and he's only 17. Did anyone else catch that?

I don't know what's true or a lie in this case, but I do know that teenagers lie to get their way and a 14-year old girl with an 18-year old boyfriend her mother doesn't approve have has TONS of reasons to lie.

I dated a girl for about six months that I totally feel for. We got along great never fought but one night, i had much drink on me and then got a little jealous and then embrassesed her in front of her friends. because of that she broke up with me right there and then. for the first week i tried to do everything in my power to get her back and then i didn’t call her for a couple of weeks. we did email but she stated that i had embrassed her and that she would never put herself through this again and that was the only thing that broke us up. (during this time, i actually contacted a spell caster prophetharry@ymail.com to help me put things together with his love spell and it helped me alot After this spell was done i waited about 3 days and the next day she sent me a light hearted text in which i responded back to. we came back to together and for about a week now we are still together.
