Woody Allen seems to be once again in the middle of a huge scandal. The famous actor and movie director is accused of molesting Dylan Farrow, during the actor’s relationship with Mia Farrow.
Actually, Dylan is the one to accuse Woody Allen, saying that he sexually assaulted her at the age of only 7. Dylan is the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen.
Actually, Dylan’s testimonial is quite shocking. According to an open letter posted by The New York Times, Dylan claims that “When I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house.
He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me.”
Dylan went on to explain that the fact that Woody Allen has never been accused with any crime only haunted her while growing up.
She says that his immense success made everything worse. So, Dylan claims that knowing what happened made it very difficult for her to accept that Allen was praised by actors and award shows.
In her open letter Dylan does not only confess how hard it has been for her to deal with this, but she goes further to ask stars such as Alec Baldwin and Emma Store what if such a thing happened to their children or even to them.
This is the first time when Dylan talks directly about what happened to her. She is now 28 years old, so the abuse occurred no less than 21 years ago, according to the adopted daughter of Woody Allen.
Naturally, Woody Allen denied all the allegations. An investigation on the case took place back in 1993, but no charges were brought against the famous actor. Dylan claimed that it all occurred in 1992 at the family’s holiday home. Back then, Woody Allen and Mia Farrow battled for the custody of their children.
Mia and Woody were together for no less than 12 years. The couple separated when Mia found out that Woody Allen had a relationship with Soon-Yi Previn, the daughter that Mia adopted with her former husband Andre Previn. The couple wedded in 1997 and now they have two adopted girls.
Of course, while reading Dylan’s open letter, Woody Allen claimed that the allegations are not true. The actor’s lawyer went on to say that it I quite sad that after no less than 20 years since the investigation that never charged Allen, Dylan still makes such allegations.
