The mother and sister of Modern Family star Ariel Winter have settled a guardianship dispute over who will care for the teenage actress.
Winter’s mother, Chrisoula Workman, and sister Shanelle Gray announced the accord on Monday in Los Angeles just before a guardianship trial was set to begin.
The 16-year-old actress will continue living with Gray, and Winter will decide whether to visit with her mother.
A temporary guardianship was granted in 2012 after Gray filed a petition alleging Workman subjected her daughter to emotional abuse. Workman denied abusing her daughter.
