Los Angeles, March 31 IANS | 2 years ago

Teen actress Ariel Winter, known for her role in "Modern Family", hasn't spoken to her mother Chrystal Workman in five months and doesn't want to undergo therapy with her to mend their relationship.


She is currently in the custody of her 34-year-old sister Shanelle Grey after being removed from her mother's care in October amid allegations of abuse.

Winter's lawyer told a judge here on Friday that she does not want to be in the same room as her mom, who asked the judge to force her daughter to go to therapy with her, reports tmz.com.

But the judge refused her request and said he couldn't force the teenager to have a relationship with her if she doesn't want to.

Earlier Winter, 15, admitted she has never been happier and feels like a normal teenager since moving in with her sister.
