But not everyone in the family thinks there’s any truth to the allegations, including Ariel’s brother, Jimmy Workman.
“This is a mother who does everything for her kids,” Jimmy told Us Weekly. “Chris misses Ariel and wants her to come home.”
The 14-year-old actress is now reportedly living with her older sister Shanelle Gray, who has been appointed her temporary guardian and who was also removed from Crystal’s home 20 years earlier after similar claims.
“There is no truth to these allegations,” Jimmy said. “The allegations made 20 years ago are not true and the ones today are not true.”
