Ariel Winter’s mother allegedly contacted a publicist in Hollywood and asked him to leak nude photos of her other daughter, Shanelle Gray. The young actress was recently placed in Gray’s custody. The Modern Family television star stated in court that she had been both physically and emotionally abused by her mother, Crisoula “Crystal” Workman.
Publicist Jonathan Hay had this to say about the alleged nude photos leak during an interview with Radar Online:
“Crystal Workman, the mother of Ariel Winter, wanted me to represent her and leak nude photos in the media of her other daughter Shanelle Workman. In all my years of being a publicist, I have never seen anyone stoop as low as wanting to sell out and destroy the reputation of her own daughter. Crystal said she wanted the public to see Shanelle for who she really was and smear her daughter in attempts to try and get custody back of Ariel.”
On Monday, Crystal Workman instructed her attorney to file documents with the court asking the judge to Shanelle’s bank statements and other financial documents, E! Online reports. Hay also claims that Ariel Winter’s mother called him “nonstop” for the last two days attempting to convince him to release the nude photos of her daughter. The Hollywood publicist noted his belief that Ariel is living under the right roof at her sister’s home and should be away from her mother.
During an interview with Crystal Workman, the Modern Family star’s mother reportedly stated that she loves her Ariel and wants to make sure that she does not become the next Lindsay Lohan and fall under the wrong influences.
