Ariel Winter Case

Publicist Claims Mom Tried

to Leak Nude Pics of Sister

Ariel Winter
's mother recently attempted to leak nude photos of Ariel's sister Shanelle Gray through a Hollywood publicist -- this according to the publicist himself, who could end up playing a critical role in the battle for custody of Ariel.

Jonathan Hay tells TMZ ... Chrystal Workman -- the "Modern Family" star's mother -- contacted him this week, and said she had nude photos of Shanelle she wanted to secretly release to the public.

TMZ broke the story ... a judge awarded Shanelle guardianship of 14-year-old Ariel in October after allegations Chrystal was emotionally and physically abusing Ariel.

Hay claims Chrystal hounded him all week about leaking the pics -- which he says are 8 or 9 years old -- but he refused because he felt like Chrystal was trying to "sell out her daughter" ... and he wanted to help Ariel.

Hay says he's already been contacted by a member of Ariel's legal team -- but adds at this point it's unclear how much of a role, if any, he will play in the case.

Hay says he would have no problem filing a declaration in support of Ariel -- but says he has not been asked to do so yet.

Ariel's case will be back in court on December 10.

That mom has problems...and wether or not she abused her daughter she created a situation that is different from most mother/child dynamics. Her daughter has obviously grown up faster than most children are asked to and put in charge of supporting the family. People say she's just a rebellious teen, but by being the primary "bread-winner" in her family she, rightly so, I think, expects to have more control in her own life. Right or wrong this is how it is. You can't thrust a child( and don't tell me a 6 year old is calling all the shots) into the work world and not expect them to grow up sooner than other kids, especially if they're the sole money makers in the family.

She is no different than Kris Krapadashian who "whoored" her "Tartlet" for fake fame and fortune, too.

The daughter is 34 so the photos were taken when she was in her 20's.

To make the sister look bad, so mom could fight and win custody of Ariel, I'm sure. This woman should never have contact with her child.

The publicist is acting as if he/she made some moral choice.

This is simple calculation, dump the mother get some good pr image, win trust of prospective clients.
