This is definitely a modern family problem – Teen TV star Ariel Winter wants a divorce from her parents!
The 14-year-old Modern Family star, who plays brainy teenager Alex Dunphy on the hit ABC comedy, is seeking legal emancipation from her father and mother, Glenn and Chrisoula Workman according to the National Enquirer.
She’s reportedly furious with them for trying to stop her from dating her 18-year-old beau of six months.
“Glenn and Chris think Cameron is too old for their daughter, but Ariel wants a full adult romance with him -- love, sex, everything,” a source divulged. “And she’ll stop at nothing to get it.
“Ariel’s so angry and determined to live her own life she’s sought out an attorney to get free of her mom and dad.”
The young actress -- who is currently living with her older sister, former One Life to Live star Shanelle Workman -- is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Hollywood stars Drew Barrymore, Macaulay Culkin, Michelle Williams and Corey Feldman, the Enquirer reports, who all won emancipation from their parents.
“Ariel is doing well at school and earning good money,” noted another insider. “She feels like she should be allowed to live her own life.
“Her parents are devastated and they don’t know what to do.”
