Since Modern Family star Ariel Winter was removed from her mother’s custody because of abuse allegations, her mother and her brother have called the claims completely untrue. A police report has now surfaced that shows that Winter’s mother was concerned that her 14-year-old daughter was in a sexual relationship with her 18-year-old boyfriend, a claim that authorities are reportedly skeptical about.
Celebuzz has obtained a police report that shows that Winter’s mother, Chris Workman, told an officer that there were “suspicious circumstances, possible unlawful sex with minor.”
“On 09-24-12, at approximately 2200-hours, she walked in the guest bedroom of her home and found her daughter, Ariel Winter Workman, in bed with boyfriend,” the report claims.
Workman reportedly went into explicit and graphic detail about what she saw and that Winter had been dating the boy for five months. “She has attempted to break them up because of their age difference,” the report states.
Workman also spoke with Celebuzz, telling the site that she “caught them engaging in behavior that I feel my daughter is too young mentally and physically to understand.”
“I put a stop to it immediately,” Worman said. “I filed charges against him because legally he is an adult and if he wants to engage in adult behavior with a minor than he should also be ready to suffer adult consequences for his actions and poor judgment.”
She continued, “I will not apologize for protecting my daughter, as she means the world to me and I will always be there for her and I will always protect her to the best of my ability until the day I die.”
TMZ is reporting that police are skeptical about Workman’s claims since she didn’t report them to police until after she lost custody of Winter on Oct. 3. The incident Workman claims she saw took place on Sept. 24.
As we previously reported, Workman and Winter’s brother claim that the abuse allegations against Workman are totally false.
Winter is now in the custody of her older sister, Shanelle Workman.
Workman’s reps have stated that Shanelle tried to gain access to Winter’s Modern Family earnings, but TMZ’s sources say that Shanelle never asked for a dime.
Workman lost custody of Shanelle 20 years ago because of similar abuse allegations.
