Ariel Winter is single?

A new report has Ariel Winter and her rumored boyfriend, Cameron Palatas, breaking up months ago. Does this put a hole in Chrisoula Workman's story?


The Ariel Winter mama drama just took an interesting turn today after a source who knows Cameron Palatas, Winter's rumored boyfriend, dropped a bomb on the case to Fox 411. The couple has been broken up for months.

If this rumor turns out to be true, it totally breaks apart the story told by her mother, Chrisoula Workman. She filed a statutory rape report against the 18-year-old actor stating that she found him in bed with her 14-year-old daughter on Sept. 24.

However, the A.N.T. Farm actor hasn't referred to his Modern Family star girlfriend since late September. Could the incident that Workman has mentioned in the press be true or did the couple break up of their own accord?

While the couple used to regulalry tweet about each other, there has been nothing but silence between the duo for the last two months.

One of the last tweets on his account to Winter said, "Everyone tune into ABC right now for the season premiere of @modernfam!!"

The ongoing saga has been played out in the press with Winter's mother releasing intimate details about her minor daughter's relationship. The young star has been in the care of her older sister Shanelle Workman since Oct. 3.

There will be another hearing on Nov. 30 to determine if the current guardianship situation is appropriate. Winter has been showing up on set and it's business as usual for the ABC star. Palatas will next be seen in MTV's new series, Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous.
