‘Modern Family’ star’s family to get counseling
LOS ANGELES — The family of teenage actress Ariel Winter agreed Wednesday to undergo counseling to try to resolve issues that led to her mother losing custody and control of her daughter’s already prolific career for the near future.
The accord came shortly before a trial over who would raise the “Modern Family” star was scheduled to begin, with both sides appearing likely to air longtime family grievances and other issues in court. Winter’s mother, Chrisoula Workman, has been accused of physically and emotionally abusing her 14-year-old daughter, claims she has vehemently denied.
Winter will continue living with her adult sister, Shanelle Gray.
Her father, Glenn Workman, was granted temporary control of his daughter’s finances.
