Ariel Winter

Mother Says Ariel

Claimed Sexual Abuse

EXCLUSIVE

0912-ariel-winter-crystal-workman-akmChrystal Workman continues making shocking claims in her bid to undo the court ruling that stripped her of custody of her daughter, Ariel Winter ... now she's raising strange allegations of sexual molestation.

Workman filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, in which she claims her 15-year-old daughter has accused her of "sexual abuse or sexual molestation."  Workman says, "I adamantly deny these accusations."

Here's the problem ... The "Modern Family" star has never hinted at sexual molestation in her guardianship case.  She has only alleged physical and emotional abuse, so it's confounding as to why Workman is denying something that was never raised in court.

It's possible Workman is inartfully referring to an allegation by Ariel's boyfriend, Cameron Palatas, who said in his deposition, "Chrystal had wanted me to sleep in Ariel's bed."  Palatas was an adult at the time.

But there's more ... Workman also claims her other daughter gave her cancer.  Workman says of Shanelle Gray, who now has legal guardianship of Ariel, "I believe the reason I got cancer was from the stress of the situation Shanelle put me through of missing my child when she was not there..."

And Shanelle is not your child? If you are so quick to discard one daughter, what says you won't with the other? You have issues lady. And your suffering from fame-whorism. Go Away

There are absolutely no studies that show that the stress of raising children can give one cancer. None. This new denial of something that was never brought up is an abuse, in and of itself. On this alone, she should be denied further custody. Let go.

When is this ugly old b*itch going to realize her gravy train has sailed away. I can't imagine how horrible she must have been for BOTH of her daughters to want nothing to do with her.

When a child is that determined to get as far away from their mother as this child is, that gives me reason to believe there is something wrong with that mother. This isn't just a fight, that girl wants nothing to do with her mother ever again. That's way beyond the normal teenage stuff.

This lady (Workman) is a loon. Everytime she opens her mouth is more reason to keep her away from Ariel.

The way Chrystal is acting, I doubt that it was a "claim:. Chrystal probably wanted to sexually abuse her daughter if it meant she did not have to work herself.

Why is anyone paying any attention to this pile of monkey shyt. This child needs more than a restraining order she need someone to hold her moms head in the toilet until she stops bubbling.
