Ariel Winter was photographed getting cozy with a mystery man on what appeared to be a date on Monday, December 9. The Modern Family star's PDA-filled outing came just hours after her ex Levi Meaden moved out of their shared Studio City, California home. Ariel and the man wrapped their arms around each other as they walked down the street, and at one point they appeared to share a kiss.
Ariel, 21, wore a gold mini dress and heels under a black coat. She kept her hair down in long waves and sported smokey eyeshadow. The mystery man wore jeans and a jacket and pulled his long hair up in a ponytail. They were joined by three other male friends.
The TV star split from Levi, 32, at the beginning of October after nearly three years of dating. They were first linked back in November 2016 and she revealed in May 2017 that they had moved in together. Their breakup came as a surprise to fans, as Ariel gushed about her beau during an interview in July.
"He’s a wonderful person. He’s always there for me … all the time. He’s always trying to make me feel good about myself, but also just to be there for me as a person, you know? Just as me, as Ariel — and that’s hard to find, people who just take you for you. The good, the bad, the ugly — everything," she told Us Weekly at the time.
People started speculating that Ariel and Levi might reconcile when they were spotted together in Los Angeles on Monday, November 25. However, Levi was photographed removing the remainder of his belongings from their home on December 9. The actor enlisted the help of a male pal as he loaded his items into a U-Haul.
Ariel's love life hasn't been the only thing landing her in the news. She lost a significant amount of weight in the past year, which she credited to being a side effect from switching her antidepressants. She opened up about her slim down in an interview with Women's Health in October.
"Years ago, it was hard because I’d go to the gym with my trainer and because of my antidepressant medications I never saw results. I didn’t change my antidepressants because I wanted to lose weight, I’d just accepted it and it was fine. I got inspired to actually find a medication that helped me as a person and did all the things I wanted it to do. When I changed meds, and started feeling better about myself mentally, losing weight was helpful because it made me feel like I wasn’t just stuck. I hate being stuck anywhere in life," she said.
