Woody Allen is again denying he molested adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow and is calling ex-partner Mia Farrow vindictive, spiteful and malevolent in an open letter published online Friday by The New York Times.
A week bracketed by op-ed letters of accusation and denial of child molestation left little clarity and scant hope for resolution in a bitter saga that has haunted Woody Allen and the Farrow family for more than two decades.
In a nearly 2,000-word open letter punctuated with rhetorical questions and decades-old anecdotes, notoriously media-shy Woody Allen again defended himself against renewed claims that he molested adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow 21 years ago.
The adopted son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow is defending his father following accusations that the director sexually abused his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, at 7 years old.
An influential website that covers Hollywood news and the business of entertainment, TheWrap.com, has called on industry insiders and members of the movie-watching public to turn their backs on movie director Woody Allen.
Woody Allen's adopted son has defended him against accusations he molested his then-7-year-old adopted daughter in 1992.
Famous film director Woody Allen sent out a statement of vehement denial this weekend: I did not have sex with my adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was 7 years old.
Some of Woody Allen's allies have come to his defense, casting doubt on renewed accusations by Dylan Farrow that she was sexually assaulted by her then-adoptive father when she was 7.
Woody Allen called Dylan Farrow's allegations of child molestation "untrue and disgraceful," signaling that he would fight renewed claims dating back to Allen's tempestuous relationship with actress Mia Farrow in the early 1990s.
Dylan Farrow renewed molestation allegations against Woody Allen, claiming the movie director sexually assaulted her when she was 7 after he and actress Mia Farrow adopted her.
Farrow, in her most detailed account yet, alleged in an open letter published Feb. 1 by The New York Times that Allen "sexually assaulted" her when she was 7 years old at the Farrows' Connecticut home, renewing a charge against the movie director that was first leveled in 1992.
"If speaking out about my experience can help others stand up to their tormentors, it will be worth the pain and suffering my father continues to inflict on me," Farrow said in a statement following Allen's op-ed. "I won't let the truth be buried and I won't be silenced."
