(LOS ANGELES) — The father of 14-year-old Modern Family star Ariel Winter, who was removed from her mother’s home last month due to allegations of abuse and was placed with her older sister, is objecting to the new arrangement.
According to TMZ.com, Winter’s father, Glenn Workman, has filed an objection in which he states, “I am physically, emotionally, and financially capable of caring for my daughter, without limitation. No evidence has been produced that suggests any detriment to Ariel associated with my father-daughter relationship with her.”
Winter’s adult sister, actress Shanelle Workman, gained temporary guardianship of her on Oct. 3 due to the allegations of emotional and physical abuse against her mother, Chrystal Workman.
Chrystal Workman is Glenn Workman’s estranged wife.
Winter plays Alex Dunphy on Modern Family.
