Los Angeles - Ariel Winter reportedly almost lost her job on Modern Family because of her mother, reports People magazine.

According to court transcripts obtained by People magazine, Michael Kretzmer told Los Angeles Superior Court judge Michael Levanas: "She has been a terror on the set. The producers and others there have expressed grave concern. Cast members are having to sneak this child food because the mother deprives the child of food."

Ariel reportedly hit and slapped by her mom

"The child looks 10 years older than her sister and is dressed up to show off her breasts and otherwise. And the mother does not let the child out of the home without being dressed in a particular way, which is highly inappropriate for a child of this age.

"The child is, apparently, slapped, hit, pushed - not so as to leave marks. Mother is smart enough not to do that."

Ariel's mother has denies all allegations against her.
