(AP) The mother of Modern Family star Ariel Winter has temporarily lost custody of the actress amid allegations she's been abusive to the teenager.


Court records claim Winter's mother, Chrisoula Workman, has been physically and emotionally abusive to her 14-year-old daughter, who plays Alex Dunphy on the hit ABC comedy.


The October order, first reported Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ, requires Workman to stay away from Winter until a Nov. 20 hearing. Records show Winter's sister filed for guardianship and was appointed her temporary guardian, but will not have access to her earnings.


The records describe Workman's abuse as consisting of slapping and name-calling.


Reached by phone, Workman said she was in the process of hiring an attorney.


Winter has appeared in films and TV shows since she was 7.
