Chrystal Workman has repeatedly said there’s no evidence she ever abused her daughter, Ariel Winter, but apparently, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services disagrees. The agency has reportedly issued a report to the judge in the guardianship case recommending Ariel’s sister, Shanelle Gray, be given permanent, full-time custody of the Modern Family star moving forward.

According to TMZ, workers for the organization feel so strongly about this case that they’re prepared to file a motion to make Ariel a ward of the state if the judge rules she should go back to her mother. After conversations with Ariel and numerous other family members, they’re convinced she has been repeatedly abused emotionally by her mother and are unsure whether or not she’s been abused physically too.

With this report, it would be a shock if the judge ruled against Shanelle moving forward. Ariel’s sister has already asked the court to shut everyone out of the girl’s finances, and she’s reportedly pushing for everyone to go to family counceling. With no clear ulterior motives other than helping her sister, it truly looks like she’s the right one to look after the actress for the next few years.

The Workman’s haven’t responded publically to this report yet, but given how much she’s talked throughout the case, Chrystal will likely have plenty to say. At this point, however, it seems like her words have done enough damage.
