Has anyone heard about the crazy story of Ariel Winter, the girl that plays Alex Dunphy, trying to be legally emancipated from her parents?
This is what I've heard on the radio so far:
She claims that her mom is physically, emotionally, and verbally abusive to her, and she wants to be emancipated from her. She also has said that her mom has starved her before, and that the cast of Modern Family has had to sneak her food. She is 14 I believe.
The mom says that the reason she wants to be emancipated is because she is seeing an 18 year old guy.
Ariel's older sister agrees with Ariel and has spoken of similar abuse from their mother.
Not sure where the dad plays in any of this...
There having court hearings later this month or in December.
Crazy stuff right? I have to do more research so I can form an opinion of what I think is going on. Ariel seems legit in her claims but she is a successful actress with a lot of money now, and I doubt you have much power over it when you're not 18....who knows.
