Winter

LOS ANGELES — Authorities are investigating an allegation by the mother of “Modern Family” star Ariel Winter that her daughter’s 18-year-old boyfriend had unlawful sex with the 14-year-old actress, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

The L.A. County Sheriff”s Department’s Special Victims Unit also is separately examining whether Winter’s mother, Chrisoula Workman, physically abused the teenage actress.

So far, detectives have not gathered any specific evidence to substantiate the allegations in either investigation involving Ariel, otherwise known to millions as Alex Dunphy, the brainy member of “Modern Family’s” Dunphy family.

Three days after Ariel took legal action to split from her mother, Chrisoula Workman reported on Oct. 6 to the sheriff’s Crescenta Valley station that her daughter’s 18-year-old boyfriend had unlawful sex with the underage actress.
