Abuse of teen star alleged

Winter

The mother of “Modern Family” star Ariel Winter has temporarily lost custody of the actress amid allegations she’s been abusive to the teenager.

Court records claim Winter’s mother, Chrisoula Workman, has been physically and emotionally abusive to her 14-year-old daughter.

The October order, first reported Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ, requires Workman to stay away from Winter until a November hearing. Records show Winter’s sister filed for guardianship and was appointed her temporary guardian.

N.Y. natives donate

Jerry Seinfeld has added a show in Long Island, where he grew up, to his new comedy tour and will donate all proceeds from it and two other performances to Superstorm Sandy relief.

The newly added show will be Dec. 19 at the NYCB Theater in Westbury. He and fellow comedian Colin Quinn, who is touring with the “Seinfeld” star, will donate all proceeds to groups helping storm victims.

Both will also donate all revenue from today’s show in Brooklyn and a Dec. 6 show on Staten Island.

Lady Gaga is donating $1 million to the Red Cross to aid those affected by Superstorm Sandy.

The New York-born singer posted on her blog Wednesday that she is pledging the money on behalf of her parents and sister. She also said she “would not be the woman or artist that I am today” if it weren’t for places like the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn.
