Ariel Winter’s Family Drama: Judge continues guardianship under Ariel’s sister


Ariel Winter may have her entire family speaking for her, but a judge will rule who the actress’ guardian will be.

The Modern Family actress is currently under the guardianship of her older sister Shanelle Gray, but Ariel’s dad and brother have both said who they believe should take care of Winter.

Ariel’s dad filed an objection to the guardianship of his daughter Ariel, saying in the declaration: “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. I am a frugal and modest person with a moderate income who doesn’t need Ariel’s income to survive.”

Apparently, Ariel’s brother Jimmy Workman has also changed his mind and wanted his father to be the guardian to his youngest sister. So to summarize:

  • Ariel’s mom (who allegedly abused the actress emotionally) does not want Shanelle to be the guardian and wants Ariel to go back to her home
  • Ariel’s brother first wanted the actress to go back to their mom, but changed his mind and decided their dad would be a better guardian
  • Ariel’s dad says he’s not out for her daughter’s money, but doesn’t feel Shanelle is the better guardian of them all. He wants Ariel to live with him.

The judge decided to let Ariel live under her sister’s guardianship in the meantime.
