Ariel Winter's Bro

I'm Not Taking Sides ....


11/19/2012 4:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ariel Winter's brother filed court docs in the guardianship case in which he says he's not taking sides ... and then goes on to squarely take sides.

Jimmy Workman, an actor who famously appeared as Pugsley in "The Addams Family," says in his declaration -- obtained by TMZ -- he "NEVER" saw any physical or emotional abuse by his mother against Ariel. He concedes he saw "normal mother and daughter arguments and banter back and forth but nothing more."

Jimmy says the conflicts worsened when Ariel allegedly refused to break up with her boyfriend.

And then Jimmy says, "My position is not to take sides with anyone, but to get this family back to where it belongs." But the next sentence -- "I as well believe that Shanelle Gray is not the right person to have custody of my younger sister Ariel."

As you know, Shanelle has a temporary guardianship. The parties are back in court tomorrow and the judge could decide to make the guardianship permanent.

""Social workers from the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services conducted extensive interviews with Ariel, her mother and her sister. At the conclusion of those exhaustive interviews and based on other evidence that social workers had, they have written a formal report for the judge handling the guardianship petition, and DCFS officials agree that her sister should remain as Ariel's guardian."

^^ Seen on a different website. Apparently the social workers who investigated think differently. And they are the professionals after all...exactly how much abuse could he have witnessed? I assume someone of his age certainly wouldn't be living, let alone hanging around his mom all the time...

And this is why parents are afraid to spank their kids. Man, I wish when I was 14 I could do whatever I wanted. Nope, instead I had to learn to get over myself, and that the world didn't revolve around me. Smh

Obviously a mama's boy.. look I think they should put her under the care of someone who can be trusted and protect her and NOT have ANY access to her account. I mean at f*cking all! Put that **** on lock by the courts til she is 18. They all seem crazy, so hateful.
