'Modern Family' Creator

Allegedly Uses Show Stationery

To Free Ariel

EXCLUSIVE

0403_ariel_winter_Steve-Levitan_tmz_getty"Modern Family" creator Steve Levitan is being dragged into Ariel Winter's gnarly custody battle ... and it's all because Steve allegedly wrote a letter to authorities saying she should be free -- ON "MODERN FAMILY" LETTERHEAD!

Ariel's mom Chrystal Workman filed court docs claiming Levitan recently wrote an emancipation letter to dependency court on her daughter's behalf -- and claims he had the nerve to write it on the show's stationery.

Workman says she wants to grill him in court for sticking his nose in family business.

We reached out to Levitan ... but he had no comment.

Give it up Crystal. You've already burned this bridge, and now you're taking a dump on the ashes.

You've driven your daughter away. You've made it clear that you only want her money. You've proven time and time again that you're not fit to be the parent of a Cabbage Patch Kid, let alone a talented and successful child actress.

Give up while you still have some dignity left. Oh, wait, too late.

Ummmmm, so what's the big deal? Seriously, the greedy pig needs to worry about her sh*tty parenting and less about Modern Family stationery.

If the mother truly had her daughter's best interests in mind, she would see that the daughter is safe and doing fine and spend her energy on rebuilding her relationship with her. Not continuing to drag her thru a lawsuit.
