Dylan Farrow is one of the adopted children of Mia Farrow. Mia was in a relationship with the famed director, and actor Woody Allen. However, they broke the relationship after Farrow learned that Allen was in a relationship with their adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.
Soon after the couple announced publicly their relationship, Mia Farrow accused Allen of sexually molesting their adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. Read on to know more about what happened after Dylan accused her father of molestation.
What Was Woody Allen’s Response To The Allegations Of Molesting His Daughter?
Dylan Farrow accused Woody Allen of sexually assaulting her when she was 7 years old. After this incident, the whole attention of the media was turned toward Woody Allen. People started believing the accusation because he was sexually involved with one of Mia Farrow’s adopted daughters, Soon-Yi Previn.
The famed director sat down for an interview with CBS Sunday Morning and said that his 35-year-old daughter is made to believe the allegation. “She was a good kid and I believe she thinks it,” Allen said. “I do not believe that she’s making it up. I don’t believe she’s lying. I believe she believes that.”
The director has consistently denied the allegation and has never been charged. In 1992 a pediatrician treated Dylan and contacted authorities regarding the claim that Allen had molested her. Investigators concluded at the time that the younger Farrow had not been abused. The acting judge at that time also said the case could not be prosecuted for sexual abuse based on the evidence and found Dylan not a victim of abuse.
What Happened To Dylan Farrow?
Dylan Farrow, in her first televised interview with CBS Sunday Morning told that she loved her father and respected him. “He was my hero. And that doesn’t obviously take away from what he did, but it does make the betrayal and the hurt that much more intense.”
Farrow alleged that her father molested her at her mother’s Connecticut home on August 4, 1992. In response to the allegations, Woody Allen said, “Why would a guy who’s 57 years old and never was accused of anything in my life, I’m suddenly going to drive up in the middle of a contentious custody fight at Mia’s country home yet. I didn’t think it required any investigation, even.”
However, Dylan stood by her claims: “Woody Allen has an arsenal of lawyers and publicists but the one thing he does not have on his side is the truth,” she said. “I hope this is the end of his vicious attacks and of the media campaign by his lawyers and publicists as he’s promised. I won’t let the truth be buried and I won’t be silenced.”
