I think when I was born I had already decided what she hoped it was and I was pushed to the industry. That is what I wanted to do and pushed me to do this. What took precedence over what I wanted and needed,” explains Winter in an interview with Dailymail.
In October 2012, her older sister, Shanelle Workman, he received the custody of Ariel after denouncing, together with his father, that the mother was abusing emotionally and physically from it. Shanelle reported that she had also suffered the same attacks, although the mother has always been declared innocent; even met the statements of several witnesses who denied to have seen abuse of any kind. The judge ruled that there was no evidence of physical abuse, but psychological, which is why we took away the custody.
