Ariel Winter's mom sues actor for defamation

The mother of Modern Family actress Ariel Winter sued an associate of her adult daughter for defamation Monday, claiming he falsely labeled her an “abusive monster” in an online comment about an ongoing custody struggle for the teenage star.

Chrisoula Workman filed the defamation and false light lawsuit against Matthew Borlenghi, claiming his comment attached to a Nov. 9 Los Angeles Times online story was false and has harmed her reputation.

Borlenghi is an actor who teaches at a studio operated by Shanelle Gray, Winter’s adult sister who currently has custody of the 14-year-old actress. A judge temporarily stripped Workman of custody amid allegations she had been physically and emotionally abusive to the star.

A trial on whether Workman will completely lose custody is scheduled to begin Wednesday.

Guardianship extended for 'Modern Family' star

A judge determined Tuesday that teen actress Ariel Winter’s mother should not regain custody of the “Modern Family” star and that the 14-year-old should remain in her sister’s care for the next several weeks.

Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas issued the ruling after considering a report by child protective investigators that was critical of Winter’s mother, Chrisoula Workman.

The report found there was evidence of emotional abuse toward Winter, Levanas said, and the agency planned to step in and take its own action if Winter did not remain in a guardianship.

The ruling came more than six weeks after Workman was temporarily stripped of custody amid allegations she had been physically and emotionally abusive to Winter.
