Woody Allen, Dylan Farrow in Public Battle over Abuse Accusations

Woody Allen and his estranged adopted daughter Dylan Farrow sparred anew in the media over claims that Allen sexually assaulted her when she was 7.

Allen wrote an Op-Ed that appeared in the online edition of The New York Times on Friday and in the print edition on Sunday. Dylan Farrow responded Friday in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

In his Op-Ed, Allen wrote, “Twenty-one years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought.”

He was responding to an open letter written by Dylan Farrow and published in the Times on Feb. 1 in which she reasserted her accusations against Allen.

Allen said Dylan Farrow had been coached by her mother, actress Mia Farrow, and reiterated that experts from the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital found that no sexual abuse had taken place.

Allen was not prosecuted for sexually molesting his adopted daughter, and was later able to adopt two children of his own with his wife, Soon-Yi Previn, an adopted daughter of Mia Farrow.

Allen said he will not address the accusations again.

“This piece will be my final word on this entire matter,” he wrote, “and no one will be responding on my behalf to any further comments on it by any party.”

In the Hollywood Reporter, Dylan Farrow said, “His op-ed is the latest rehash of the same legalese, distortions, and outright lies he has leveled at me for the past 20 years,” she wrote.

Dylan Farrow cited findings of a decision by the New York Supreme Court in 1992 that denied Allan access to her, citing the sexual abuse allegations.

“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.”

  1. just deny and ignore and hope they just go away….. go plan, let me know how it goes when your in court?

  2. Tracy Sorensen says:

    Good. I hope he is brought to justice soon.

  3. Rose Galston says:

    Woody's response made perfect sense…It looks like Mia is still trying to get even!

  4. Theres not much to ignore.

  5. Dan Silagi says:

    It's very hard to win this kind of a battle, but after having read as much about this as I could, it seems as though Mia Farrow is lying. One of the things that's a hallmark of perverts who prey on little kids is they do it numerous times. There is no evidence of this in the Allen case; none. There is just the one, and it came in at the height of a child custody case, when Allen knew that he had to be on his very best behavior.

  6. Gil Gilman says:

    Say, I have some dirty laundry and some trash. I was going to wash the laundry and throw out the trash, but if you are so desperate for something to write about, I can send it to you via DHL.

  7. Miriam Fishman says:

    why is this article on Jewish Press. com? Who on earth cares about this garbage?

  8. Thank God. I never want to see his ugly perverted self on my feed ever again. Shut up, Woody. Hope we don’t read about your and Soon Yi’s adopted kids being sexually abused in a couple of years.

  9. Rachel Kapen says:

    I agree, Miriam. We have better, more important things to worry about.

  10. Jacques Daniel, this is a Classic in America, when one is famous or has money, they invent Abuse, or Sexual harassment, to extract money or dirty his name for a personal satisfaction.

  11. Dan Silagi says:

    Rachel Kapen Like whether Reform Jews are really Jewish, and whether intermarriage is created a second holocaust, perhaps?

  12. Dan Silagi says:

    LIke whether Reform Jews are really Jewish, and if you eat a pork chop you'll bring about the destruction of Israel, and if you intermarry that'll cause cancer?
