Skip to comments.Dylan Farrow’s brother: She wasn’t abused [Woody Allen]
Posted on 02/05/2014 10:11:36 AM PST by grundle
Following Dylan Farrows harrowing letter describing sexual molestation she says she suffered from father Woody Allen her brother Moses is speaking out to defend Allen, accusing their mother Mia of poisoning them against their father.
Responding to accusation first made 20 years ago that has bitterly divided the family, Moses accused Mia Farrow of turning him and Dylan against Allen as revenge for his affair with Soon-Yi.
Of course Woody did not molest my sister, says Moses, who is estranged from Mia Farrow and remains close to Allen and Soon-Yi.
My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister, Moses, 36, tells People Magazines new issue. And I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi.
Allen, 78, has denied abusing Dylan, arguing that Farrow, 69, coached Dylan, an accusation that Farrow refutes. Allen was investigated when the allegation was first made but not charged with molestation.
Speaking of Dylans childhood relationship with the Hollywood director, Moses continued, She loved him and looked forward to seeing him when he would visit. She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him.
The day in question, there were six or seven of us in the house. We were all in public rooms and no one, not my father or sister, was off in any private spaces. My mother was conveniently out shopping.
I dont know if my sister really believes she was molested or is trying to please her mother. Pleasing my mother was very powerful motivation because to be on her wrong side was horrible.

The media NEVER, EVER tells all the story, even if/when they have “all” the facts. There is ALWAYS something left out, thanks to some numb-nut editor who wants a Pulitzer.
Who knows who is telling the truth, the language of liberals is lying so the daughter could be lying but so could this kid, so could Mia, so could Woody. That’s why they’re all insane.
...didn’t Woody Allen marry his adopted daughter?
Yeah I’m sure he’s a stand up guy....
Hell hath no fury...
Hmmmm...who to believe? Facts: Woody Allen married the adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, of Mia Farrow, and Farrow discovered nude photographs that Allen had taken of Soon-Yi, who was around 20 years old then. The facts paint the picture of a very unusual man.
Of course, this is the same Hollywood defending Roman Polanski...
And seeking the love of a father is a strong motivator as well.Sad to see a family torn apart like this.I tend to believe the letter written by Dylan.Who would want to expose themselves in this way unnless it were true.Her feeling of betrayal by those who revere her “father”rings true.
“...didnt Woody Allen marry his adopted daughter?”
Soon-Yi never was Allen’s adopted daughter. She was the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and Andre Previn. Still, very abnormal behavior on his part.
Marrying your adopted half retarded daughter is strange indeed. But it’s a huge leap from there to he was molesting his kids. Is Woody Allen weird? Absolutely. However, these charges are tenous at best so we have to give the leftist the benefit of the doubt.
I’m ready for all these people to go away.
I never cared much for his movie Manhattan to begin with but looking back on it now it is down right CREEPY.
see what sells newspapers?
(hint: it sure ain’t anything newsworthy...)
“Marrying your adopted half retarded daughter is strange indeed”
She, soon yi, is neither woodys adopted daughter nor half retarded.
I don’t suppose any of them would agree to a lie detector test.
WHAT? this is the first I've ever heard of this happening in an ugly divorce.
Been pointed out that she wasn't his adopted daughter and even (news to me) that Allen never lived in the home with Mia while Soon Yi was there.
Also someone on FR noted yesterday that Soon Yi graduated from Columbia, I think, and speaks a half dozen languages, something like that.
Screwed-up man, disastrous family. From the little I've read about them I think Soon Yi may be the one closest to normal.
Never believe a woman that has satan’s baby.
Mia Farrow is a friend and defender of Roman Polanski. Go figure.
There’s enough craziness in that family to fuel a nuclear power plant.
Seeking the $$$ of the father
I don’t think a sibling could accurately state whether molestation occurred.
#1: Soon-Yi was Woodys daughter. False.
#2: Soon-Yi was Woodys step-daughter. False.
#3: Soon-Yi was Woody and Mias adopted daughter. False. Soon-Yi was the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and André Previn. Her full name was Soon-Yi Farrow Previn.
#4: Woody and Mia were married. False.
#5: Woody and Mia lived together. False. Woody lived in his apartment on Fifth Ave. Mia and her kids lived on Central Park West. In fact, Woody never once stayed over night at Mias apartment in 12 years.
#6: Woody and Mia had a common-law marriage. False. New York State does not recognize common law marriage. Even in states that do, a couple has to cohabitate for a certain number of years.
#7: Soon-Yi viewed Woody as a father figure. False. Soon-Yi saw Woody as her mothers boyfriend. Her father figure was her adoptive father, André Previn.
#8: Soon-Yi was underage when she and Woody started having relations. False. She was either 19 or 21. (Her year of birth in Korea was undocumented, but believed to be either 1970 or 72.)
#9: Soon-Yi was borderline retarded. Ha! Shes smart as a whip, has a degree from Columbia University and speaks more languages than you.
#10: Woody was grooming Soon-Yi from an early age to be his child bride. Oh, come on! According to court documents and Mias own memoir, until 1990 (when Soon-Yi was 18 or 20), Woody had little to do with any of the Previn children, (but) had the least to do with Soon-Yi so Mia encouraged him to spend more time with her. Woody started taking her to basketball games, and the rest is tabloid history. So he hardly had his eye on her from the time she was a child.
Woody married his adopted daughter.
I’ve made my decision.
Look at who Woody married. I believe the daughter.
Soon-Yi was Woody and Mias adopted daughter. False. Soon-Yi was the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and André Previn. Her full name was Soon-Yi Farrow Previn.
Press releases a twenty paces... the modern ‘duel’.
Oh that’s better he married his ex wife’s adopted daughter.
He’s a scumbag child molester.
Well, I see you made up your mind.
A minute ago you thought he married his adopted daughter but were wrong about that.
Now your opinion still has no facts behind it, but hey, who needs facts.
The fact that he had sex with his adopted daughter is proof enough...

Woody had nothing to do with the adoption of Soon-Yi.
Farrow adopted Soon-Yi at age 8 with then husband Andre Previn in 1978. The couple divorced in 1979 and Farrow began dating Allen in 1980.
...Did Soon-Yi start “dating” Woody in 1979 too??
Where do you stand on retarded? Formally or informally?
Where do you stand on the genius of Woody Allen?
No, he married the adopted daughter of his paramour, Ms. Farrow. Had he adopted her, or been married to her adoptive mother, I suspect even in New York incest laws would have prevented the marriage.
A bit creepy, yes, especially with the age difference well outside the “half plus seven years” rule of thumb for non-creepiness, when they became involved, but they were both adults when the relationship began, and for crying out loud, he married her and they’re still married lo these 17 years later. These days that’s saying something that actually supports the assessment of him as a “stand up guy”, particularly for someone in the arts or entertainment.
“Woody had nothing to do with the adoption of Soon-Yi.”
I know that. If you read it closely, my post doesn’t contradict yours.
Tell me that you hate Woody Allen movies, and still think he’s totally innocent of the charges...
I hear crickets.
Six feet on top of it, takin’ a whiz.
I haven’t seen a Woody Allen movie in a couple decades at least.
I just think the whole business is so warped if not definitively criminal that we may as well be a little careful about the details we do know.
Why I even care I don’t know...except the accusation seems warped and carefully timed as well.
Then we agree. Why am I interested? I don’t know either!
Has there EVER been ANY evidence that Woody actually did molest this girl? Other than her saying it happened?
Maybe he did, maybe he didn’t. These kinds of claims are sketchy, even when made contemporaneously. Coming this many years later?? Might as well accuse him of murder.
NO WAY for anyone else to know the truth.
If Dylan has convinced herself of the abuse, she could probably pass a lie detector test.
If there was no proof 20 years ago, there probably won't be any found now, no matter how much ink is spilled on the story.
I never was a Woody Allen fan; his movies were a little too parochial, New York, upper middle class Jewish angsty for me.
So you think Woody’s a stand up guy.
Good for you.
I still think it’s gross that a guy somewhere in his 40’s or 50’s doing the nasty with a 19-21 year old girl who was his wife’s adopted daughter is sick.
Did he play Barbie’s with her? You seem awful knowledgeable about this so did he?
Okay - I don’t have any proof that he molested Dylan. From what I’ve seen of his movies and his personal antics, it would sure seem to be within his character.
I always found his brand of comedy a little depressing, actually. A bit morose.
I think they should throw Allen and Mia Farrow in jail.
I can’t stand Woody Allen.
He’s another rich liberal douche bag and because of that he can get away with anything.
If I had been accused of this, it would at least be investigated to the fullest extent of the law.
Price I pay for not being important.
And that’s how things roll in Obamaland.
Soon-yi was not Allen’s adopted daughter but she WAS the adopted SISTER of Woody’s biological child. Nasty enough for me. I don’t know the truth about the alleged molestation. Only two people do.
Yesterday I tussled with a reflexive Allen-as-artistic- genius fan or two.
Today? Maybe it’s that I get sick of the pervert charge at times smearing a man or a family who can never fully exonerate himself/themselves.
This bit from Moses seems somehow more convincing than some of the rest of it. But who knows, he could be wack too.
