Ariel Winter Not-So-Subtly Confirms She's Single -- With Help From Kim Kardashian

By
Ariel Winter appears to be single and ready to mingle!
The 18-year-old actress announced her changed relationship status on Saturday by posting a GIF of Kim Kardashian that says, "I'm like dropping hints that I'm single." She captioned the tweet with, "When you're surprised that people just haven't gotten it yet."
Later that evening she posted a screenshot of the tweet on Instagram with the caption, "Hi there press people!!!!!!"

Apparently, Winter really wanted people to know she's officially single.
The Modern Family star had an on-again, off-again relationship with Laurent Claude Gaudette since the two began dating in late 2013. Rumors of the couple’s breakup came to a head last month, when Winter attended her senior prom without Gaudette.
ET reached out to Winter's rep about the supposed split earlier this month but were told she had no comment about the speculation.
Winter has been quite active on social media lately. On Friday, she posted a mirror selfie that showed off her bod in a very tiny pair of daisy dukes and a crop top that featured the face of Burt Reynolds, adding the hashtag "throwinshade" to her Instagram caption. The iconic actor is Winter's co-star in the movie, Dog Years, which she is currently filming in Tennessee.

The new pic comes just a few days after Winter defended herself against body shamers who had criticized her after she wore a skin-baring gown to her graduation party on June 18. Check out the video below to hear more from the outspoken star.
