Washington: Ariel Winter’s mother Crystal Workman who lost the legal guardianship of the ‘Modern Family’ star, reportedly contacted a Hollywood publicist and asked him to leak nude photos of her older daughter, Shanelle.
Publicist Jonathan Hay said that Crystal was out for revenge when she contacted him.
“Crystal Workman, the mother of Ariel Winter, wanted me to represent her and leak nude photos in the media of her other daughter Shanelle Workman,” a website has quoted him as saying.
“In all my years of being a publicist, I have never seen anyone stoop as low as wanting to sell out and destroy the reputation of her own daughter. Crystal said she wanted the public to see Shanelle for who she really was and smear her daughter in attempts to try and get custody back of Ariel,” he said.
On Monday, Crystal had her lawyer file court documents asking a judge to summon a complete income and expense declaration from 34-year-old Shanelle including bank statements, tax returns and source of income.
“Crystal has called me nonstop in the last 48 hours, trying to get me to leak these pictures,” Jonathan said, adding that he is completely against the notion of leaking the nude photos.
“Clearly, Ariel is in the right place with Shanelle and away from her mother,” he said.
Crystal later commented, “I love my daughter Ariel and I am trying to make sure she doesn’t fall under the wrong influences so she doesn’t become the next Lindsay Lohan.”
