The drama between Ariel Winter and her mother is getting uglier by the second.
While the Modern Family actress has to deal with trying to emancipate herself from her mom, her 18-year-old ex-boyfriend Cameron Palatas is being dragged into the court case.
According to Radar Online, court documents filed by a rep for Ariel’s mother state that Cameron was too controlling of Ariel while the two were together.
The documents state her mother as saying:
“I was very much so surprised at the relationship between Ariel and Cameron Palatas. The fact that he was much older, Chris was assured it was platonic. His nature seemed too controlling at a fitting and at dinner. The home life that Chrisoula Workman and her husband, Ariel’s father provides is nurturing, non-abusive and normal.”
For now, Ariel is staying with her sister Shanelle, who is trying to become Ariel’s legal guardian.
A custody document in the case states:
“Ariel Workman has been the victim of on-going physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name calling, personal insults about minor and minor’s weight, attempts to ‘sexualize’ minor, deprivation of food, etc) for an extended period of time by the minor’s mother, Chris Workman.”
Hopefully this case can work out so that Ariel can live wherever it is best for her.
