The “Modern Family” teen star Ariel Winter has been in the news for real-life family drama, but another actor and Ariel’s alleged boyfriend – 18-year-old Cameron Palatas – has been dragged into it after Ariel’s mom filed a police report against him for statutory rape.
Palatas, who stars in MTV’s Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous, has reportedly been seeing the 14-year-old Winter. Ariel’s mom Chrisoula Workman recently filed charges against him alleging statutory rape, after Ariel was taken from her custody due to abuse allegations.
It is now being reported that Palatas and Winter have been broken up for months, after dating since May. Although it is unknown when the relationship ended, Workman claims to have found Winter and Palatas in bed together on Sept. 24. Although if you followed both Palatas and Winter around September or earlier, you’ll see them referring to each other as boyfriends/girlfriends via Twitter, but have since kept their relationship low profile.
Both Palatas and Winter come from a family of child stars. Cameron has two older brothers (Nick and Phillip), while Ariel has an older brother Jimmy Workman (Puygsly from Addams Family films) and her current guardian Shanelle Gray.
Winter’s next guardianship court date is Nov. 30.
