Ariel Winter's Mom

She Attacked Me and Said

"I'll Make You Pay!"

Ariel Winter's mom told the guardianship judge when she confronted her daughter about her relationship with an 18-year-old boy, Ariel attacked her and threatened to make her pay ... this according to court transcripts obtained by TMZ.

Before the court heard Chrystal Workman's side, the judge heard exactly what we reported this morning ... that Ariel's mom, Chrystal was "a terror on the set of 'Modern Family' and that the producer and others there have expressed grave concern ..." this according to the lawyer for Ariel's sister.

The transcript chronicles the court hearing last month, at which the judge removed Ariel from the care of her mother and created a temporary guardianship.

According to the lawyer for Shanelle Gray, "The child [Ariel] is, apparently, struck repeatedly, slapped, hit, pushed, not so as to leave marks. Mother is smart enough not to do that."

But Chrystal fired back, "She is an actress so I'm sure she can cry at the drop of a hat." In other words, Chrystal was warning the judge that her daughter was making up her story.

The lawyer for Shanelle also claimed Chrystal "sexualizes the child," and showed the judge a pic of Ariel "dressed up to show off her breasts and otherwise."   

The lawyer also mentions what we said this morning ... that people on the set of "Modern Family" were "having to sneak this child food because the mother deprives the child of food."

Shanelle, who was in court, told the judge her mom physically abused her 20 years ago. But Chrystal said the allegation was false, and what really went down was that Shanelle ran off with a gang member wannabe and they found her at a crack house -- i.e., she has no credibility.

She doesn't look like she's been denied much food to me.

I'm sure the judge has heard this kind of stuff 1000 times before and can easily tell what is real and what isn't.

TMZ keeps reporting that Crystal was a terror on the set of Modern Family. Did the judge make his decision to place her with her sister because they have signed declarations from the Staff of the t.v. show? If so, how about just posting that proof TMZ and stop wasting everyone's time with the b.s. sensationalism of she said/she said. Oh that's right, if you did that you wouldn't have five threads about this child to post in an hour.

Sounds like the little dear is trying to grow wings in a nasty kind of way. On the other hand, it also sounds like self, parental alienation.

Dina Lohan still has custody of her minor children and this woman has lost 2 of her 3. That's all the evidence I need to prove that she's a total nutbag.

I'm still trying to figure out that if Workman knew there was a 18 year old legal adult having a relationship with her 14 year old minor daughter why she didn't take the proper steps and send authorities to his house to warn him what he was doing was illegal.

This whole thing stinks to high heaven. I'm sure, as I said earlier, TMZ has a lot more info than they are sharing and we'll be getting the cut and dry proof eventually when these posts only get 30 comments (I should be ashamed, I'm just adding to the clicks).

Feminism has taught grown women to blame their kids instead of accepting responsibility for their own abusive ways.
