Ariel Winter's Mom

Loses Bid to Reunite

With Daughter

Ariel Winter
's mother Chrystal Workman won't get the chance to reunite with her daughter ... at least for the foreseeable future, TMZ has learned.

Chrystal filed docs recently asking to get her daughter back -- after the court stripped her of custody last year -- but the judge in the case refused ... extending the temporary guardianship of Ariel's older sister Shanelle instead.

You'll recall, Shanelle has been Ariel's guardian since last year, when Chrystal lost custody over allegations that she was emotionally abusive to the 15-year-old "Modern Family" actress.

According to the new court order, Chrystal "presented no evidence that there were any changes or repair of damage to their relationship" -- which has completely fallen apart -- so the judge shot her down.

As we reported, Ariel wants nothing to do with Chrystal whatsoever, and says she loves being with her sister.

Per the order, Ariel will stay under Shanelle's guardianship ... at least pending the outcome of Chrystal's custody trial in September.

All the mother wants is access to her daughters hard earned money. I say that Ariel should get a restraining order against her greedy mother and emancipate herself ASAP.

Finally a judge in that town that uses her/his HEAD. This woman does not deserve at ALL to have any contact with this girl. She just needs to get a job!

"allegations that she was emotionally abusive to the 15-year-old"

Don't most teenagers think their mom is emotionally abusive to them?

This relationship is toxic for Ariel. Luckily she has a sister she can count on and trust to look out for her best interests.

Chrystal will lose in September. They wouldn't have removed Ariel from her home unless there was some truth to the allegations.

Shouldn't the headline say 'Loses Bid to Mooch off Daughter'? Obviously she doesn't give a rats ass about her beyond spending her money. Horrible excuse for a mother.

I hate to say it, but this mom is probably going to be cut off for life. Once these kids get it in their head that they hate their mother and think they are above her, they will never go back to her again. Their self esteem is fueled by their hatred and disdain.


Has this Ariel ever shown how her mother caused her injury? I think the mother just cramped her style. I think the mother was strict and the girl felt too important to live by the rules.


Parents have rights too, but nobody seems to care about that. These kids think they are some sort of prize that you have to qualify to be worthy of. I don't see this as a girl with self esteem issues.


They really aren't supposed to deny custody unless the parents are out of control dangerous.

Emotional abuse for spoiled rich kids can sometimes be nothing more than telling them no.

If she loved her daughter she would not put her through a trial....but that's how arrogant mom is and how much she cannot accede to the fact she lost the money. She could work at Ralph's or Kroger?

The girl is old enough to decide where she wants to love.
