“Modern Family” star Ariel Winter has officially broken up with longtime boyfriend Laurent Claude Gaudette, and she wants each of her 2 million Instagram followers to know it. The couple had been together for two years, and even though they briefly broke up once before, this time around it seems like it’s for good.
First, the 18-year-old actress left a not so coy hint that she was single while riding solo to her senior prom. She posted this picture of herself with both middle fingers up, quoting Beyonce’s break-up anthem, “Sorry.”
Apparently, that message was apparently too vague. So to clear up any confusion regarding her current relationship status, Winter posted this cut and dry announcement meme on Sunday (June 26).
While showing off her curves is nothing new for Winter, she seems to have ramped up the amount of half-naked sultry pictures. Whether she’s sending subliminal message to her ex — saying, “This is what you’re missing out on” — or trying to use her Instagram account as an online dating platform, she has mastered that come hither camera stare.
The cut-out body wrap dress Winter wore to her high school graduation party left little to the imagination.
Couldn't be more grateful to @shanelle_gray & @davidbarrygray for throwing me the most amazing graduation party ever last night…the amount of love and support they've shown me for the past four years has been life changing. My sister is my absolute best friend and my everything…❤️ Thank you so much. I couldn't be luckier or more grateful. I was in awe last night and I still am that you guys love me that much to do all of that for me…I never would be where I am today without you two…you guys saved me and taught me to be the person I am today. Dad…I love you!!! Thank you for always being there to support and love me as well and always put a smile on my face no matter what :). I'm so grateful for the bond we now share. Alenah the song you put together with Shanelle and recorded for me was one of the most special gifts I've ever received. I'm still tearing up thinking about it. Thank you for that and for your beautiful, special performance. Also a big thank you so much to Geraldine for putting it all together and to @contemporarycatering @robpauerful for the most amazing food! A special thank you as well to Sharon who is probably the biggest reason I was able to get through high school and accepted into college…you pushed me to always do my best and encouraged me…not to mention you were always there for my 1am freak outs about late projects 🙂 Anddddd thank you SO MUCH to all of my amazing family members and friends that flew in to celebrate with us- you guys are the absolute best. Thank you also to the ones who didn't have to fly in…so much love was felt all around last night. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!! Class of 2016…❤️ #uclabound
There’s no questioning which assets Winter wanted to show off in this recent patriotic bathing suit post.
Winter is a beautiful young woman, and it’s easy to forget she’s still just a teenager when flipping through her pics.
There’s a whole series of bikini photos like this one from her vacation in the Bahamas.
At the end of the day, Winter’s message is loud and clear: She is single and she is most definitely ready to mingle.
