Ariel Winter and her mother Chrystal Workman won’t be reuniting any time soon. A judge refused a case where Workman filed documents to ask to get her daughter back, reportedly saying Workman “presented no evidence that there were any changes or repair of damage to their relationship.”
Instead of returning Winter to Workman’s custody, TMZ reports that the judge instead extended Winter’s guardianship with her older sister Shanelle Gray.That seems in line with what the 15-year-old “Modern Family” star wants, instead of the court-ordered family therapy that Workman is asking for.
It’s reported that Winter hasn’t spoken to her mother since October when she was removed from her mother’s home. The guardianship case was extended in November after a judge found “substantiated” evidence of emotional abuse at the hand of Workman. The outcome of Workman’s custody trial will be revealed in September.
