    I find this all very interesting because I follow her on Twitter and Instagram and when she first started dating that guy she was getting hammered on both sites for the age disparity in the relationship. Then abruptly stopped posting photos of them and stopped talking about him on twitter. I also thought it was odd that she dresses very proactively for a 14-year-old.

    Most likely this is a case where both parties are probably at fault and both allegations need to be handles separately. Investigate the mother for abuse and investigate the boyfriend and her for statutory rape. One question though, can the statutory be waved if the mother gives consent? That seems very shady.

    Why would an 18 year old boy/man want a 14 year old girl anyway? What do they talk about? Either she's very intelligent or he's pretty stupid.

    Mom has a 34 year old and a 14 year old? Sounds like mom was getting her groove on for a good while.

    Not that I am condoning it, but she's not your average 14 year old. She's a television star that's making a lot of money. There are 18 year olds that are going to be attracted to that.

    Remember the Drew Barrymore stories? I don't remember the exact ages (younger than 14), but she could get into any club she wanted to, have anything see wanted, etc.

    I caught part of this on TMZ the other day and the interesting thing that they alleged was that the older sister had similar allegations when she was Winter's age.

    Not to mention that Jerry Lee Lewis married a 13 year old, who was his second cousin as I recall.

    18 & 14 could easily be a high school senior and a high school freshman. Nothing odd about that.

    This isn't a Courtney Stodden situation.

    Wow...some of the responses to this are a bit scary....almost "blaming the victim".

    If she's abused or raped, it doesn't matter how old she is, how much money she makes or how famous she is.

    The "abuse" being discussed here isn't sexual abuse. They're claiming that her mother was verbally and physically abusive, and that she calls her daughter fat and withholds food from her, etc.

    The sexual allegations were completely separate from the abuse, and were based on "alleged" consensual sex with her boyfriend.

    The forms of abuse included "attempting to sexualize minor". You left that out.

    In response to "why would an 18 year old want a 14 year old". Ask Jerry Lee Lewis.

    I wasn't even sure what that meant and it sounded made up, so I left it out. Is that saying that Ariel's mom made her dress slutty or something?

    that's what I thought it meant

    I figure the mom wants here to lose weight, dress slutty, maybe setup an "accidental" nip slip or pantyless limo exit all in the hopes of getting the daughter more press and bigger parts in movies

    State laws differ. The age difference between the adult and the minor, if it is under a certain amount of years can be legal. This is a four year age difference so it probably is not legal. (this prevents consensual sex between teenagers ie a 15 and a 17 year old for example from being criminalized.) I think California is a 2 year difference. Where was the mother in this. I would think that she would not want her daughter going out with an 18 year old.

    I don't think this case has much to do with the minor and her boyfriend having sex. The issue was the way the mother was treating the daughter, and it was only after there was a complaint filed with the court that she then brought up the relationship between her daughter and the boyfriend to try and deflect the charges against her.

    Thankfully the Jackie Cogan laws should be protecting her money that she has made on the show.
