Ariel Winter's Brother

FLIP FLOPS

She Belongs with My Dad

Ariel Winter
's brother was singing a different tune outside court this morning -- claiming his little sister belongs in the custody and care of their father ... and NOT with their mother.

Ariel's bro Jimmy Workman had previously submitted a declaration in support of his mother Chrystal Workman in her custody battle over the 14-year-old actress --denying allegations his mother physically and emotionally abused Ariel.

But outside court today, Jimmy said, "Hopefully my father gets custody of my sister, which it should be."

Meanwhile, Ariel's dad Glenn Workman filed his own declaration in the case, writing, "I am physically, emotionally, and financially capable of caring for my daughter, without limitation."

The judge just recessed for lunch, so he can read the reports from the Dept. of Children and Family Services.

Nothing like being 14 and having all your family issues out there for the public to read about in real-time.

I'm asking as a question only! Do you think Hollywood should do back ground checks on parents and get the family evaluated first before a child can start acting? Also have the family see a family therapist once a year? The only reason I ask is because something needs to be done. Hollywood actors and actresses have a lot of followers that do what they do. They actually have a lot of responsibility but just don't realize or care.

Hey!
It's not that he flip flopped...
He has been talking to DCFS, laywers, & others??
That's what usually happens in these kinds of case when DCFS is involved. If the father is an appropriate parent and he is willing to fallow the court order & cooperative w DCFS and others or others involved -- to work in the best interest of the child -- protect the child -- then he has every right to have the child in his care. He is as a parent automatically served with complaint/order to show cause -- so he was or should have always been a part of the court order?? So -- why the flip/ flop -- he said -- what he said -- it's typical. Just saying!!??
Thanks,

Doesn't the dad live in Vermont and hasn't done any real parenting for, at least, 2 years? I don't see how giving custody to someone in Vermont helps Ariel's career in Hollywood. Or does he epoect her to pay to relocate him and pay the bills while she's in his custody in CA?

He knows he better be nice nice with the family cash cow. The way the guy looks now, his acting jobs are probably non-existent.

Just let her stay with her sister, appoint a trustee or conservator of her money and be done with it!

What's the difference if he thinks she go with the mom or dad? She'd still be in the same house as the mother.

How many different names does this family have. From what I have seen and read about this case, this little girl just wants to get out from under her mother because her mother objects to her screwing a 19 year-old fellow actor at the age of 14.

There is something so fishy with this chick.... I don't know why but I really do believe the mother's story, I mean have you seen the size of her b00bies? As a teenage girl, I KNOW that she was doing some type of sexual activities to get those. Lol. Her family is only on her side because they want to get their dirty hands on her money. Hollywood is pathetic. Lol
