Ariel Winter’s real-life family drama doesn’t seem to be getting any less complicated. 

The Modern Family star, who portrays middle child Alex Dunphy on the hit ABC show, was removed from her home by a judge earlier this week after “serious allegations of physical and emotional abuse by her mother,” Crystal Workman.

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.”
