The custody battle for Modern Family star Ariel Winter just got a whole lot uglier than it already was. In October, 14-year-old Ariel became estranged from her mother after claims of physical and mental abuse, and went to live with her old sister, who’d been estranged from their mom for many years. Since then, the mother has been arguing that Ariel’s older sister is not a good fit for her, and that Ariel’s only making these claims because the mom wouldn’t let her date and fool around with an 18-year-old guy. It was hard to determine who was telling the truth in this case, but a new bombshell may work in Ariel’s favor if it’s true. Details below.
TMZ reports that Ariel’s mom tried to leak naked pictures of her own daughter, Ariel’s older sister Shanelle! Hollywood publicist Jonathan Hay revealed she’d contacted him this week, and said she had naked photos of Shanelle she wanted to secretly leak. She allegedly was beasting him all week to leak the 8-year-old pics, but he apparently wouldn’t do it because he didn’t want to help “sell out her daughter.” Rather, he wanted to help Ariel.
One of Ariel’s lawyers has already hit him up to possibly testify in court about it all, but nothing has been set just yet. Ariel will be back in court for the matter on December 10th.
