The mother of 14-year-old Modern Family star Ariel Winter denied Wednesday allegations she abused her daughter, who has a restraining order against her mom and has moved out of the house. "It's all untrue, it's all untrue," Chris Workman tells People. According to court papers filed Oct. 3 in Los Angeles, Winter - who plays Alex Dunphy on the hit show - alleges her mother subjected her to "ongoing physical abuse (slapping, hitting, pushing) and emotional abuse (vile name-calling, personal insult's about minor and minor's weight, attempts to 'sexualize' minor, deprivation of food, etc.) for an extended period of time."
