Workman, who has been ordered by the court not to contact her daughter until further notice, told People magazine: "It's all untrue, it's all untrue."

Despite reports in court documents that reveal Workman allegedly slapped and hit Winter and deprived her of food, Workman claims she has proof that no abuse has occurred.

"I have my doctor's letter that my daughter's never been abused. … I have stylists' letters that she's never been abused," Workman additionally claimed.

Winter is currently in the temporary custody of her older sister Shanelle Gray. A follow-up hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, November 20.
