The investigation into allegations that "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter's mother has been physically and emotionally abusive just got a little more complicated.Now Winter's mom Chrisoula Workman is separately claiming that her 14-year-old daughter had unlawful sex with her 18-year-old boyfriend, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Three days after Winter took legal action, her mother claimed that she discovered her daughter in the guest bedroom of her Montrose home on September 24 in bed with her boyfriend. Both teenagers denied doing anything unlawful.

Workman has denied all the allegations that she has slapped, hit and pushed her daughter. Authorities are investigating the two cases separately.

Right now Winter is living with her adult sister Shanelle Gray, and Workman has been ordered to stay away from Winter.
