Dylan Farrow claimed publicly for the first time that her adopted father Woody Allen molested her when she was as young as seven-years-old. Her account of the whole thing is pretty graphic and it paints Woody Allen as a monster. We don’t think that she would make any of this up and it seems that going public with her own story could be quite therapeutic for her.
Via the New York Times, she talks about how he coaxed her into playing with her brother’s train set while he molested her. In addition, there is some pretty graphic content, so here is a link to that if you are looking for the full text.
It’s a sad, sad story. At the time this was said to have been going on, Woody was splitting from his girlfriend at the time, Mia Farrow. It was reported then that Mia had convinced Dylan to make claims of molestation in order to hit him where it hurt. As a result of Mia’s belief in her daughter, she quickly got her entire family away from him. Now, it still haunts Dylan to this day — especially when he is on a stage receiving praise for the work that he’s done in his career.
Now, he has heard the rumors and has issued a small response. His attorney has said that this story is not true and Woody is preparing a full statement on the matter soon. The attorney said, “Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon.”
