“Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter has been living with her older sister recently after allegations that her mom was emotionally and physically abusing her. A court decided yesterday that Ariel’s mother would not regain guardianship, and that her sister will retain a temporary guardianship until another court hearing on December 12, 2012 to decide who will permanently become Ariel’s guardian.
Child Protective Services determined that there was evidence of emotional abuse in the case, but there was no conclusive evidence of physical abuse.
This is so sad, and especially around the holidays! We wish Ariel the best during this time and hope the court makes the best decision for Ariel during the next hearing.
