"Ariel is young and does not understand the severity of the consequences of her actions...." Last month, a Los Angeles judge ordered the young actress to be placed in temporary guardianship of her older sister, Shanelle Gray.... "Ariel is upset and is using her sister's vulnerabilities to her advantage so she can see her boyfriend," Workman said in the court documents. "I caught Ariel and (the teen) engaging in inappropriate sexual behavior, which is when I became adamant that she end her relationship with him. Out of concern for Ariel, I notified the police since Ariel is a minor."
