It’s been a long battle for Ariel Winter.
Back in 2012, Ariel‘s sister, Shanelle Gray was granted temporary custody after claims of abuse from their mother, Crystal Workman, surfaced.
She had been a “victim of ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name calling, personal insults about minor and minor’s height, attempts to ‘sexualize’ minor, deprivation of food, etc.) for an extended period of time by the minor’s mother”, although Crystal still denies the accusations.
Now, via ET, Shanelle has been granted permanent guardianship over Ariel, while her father, Glenn Workman, will oversea her finances until she turns 18 in 2016.
