Woody Allen again denies sexual abuse allegation in rare interview

The renowned director stated he thinks his now-estranged 35-year-old child thinks the accusation.

“She was a good kid and I believe she thinks it,” Allen stated. “I do not believe that she’s making it up. I don’t believe she’s lying. I believe she believes that.”

CNN has actually connected to Farrow for remark.

Allen, 85, has actually regularly rejected the accusation and has actually never ever been charged. In 1992 a pediatrician dealing with Dylan Farrow called authorities relating to the claim Allen had actually molested her. Quickly after, Allen applied for custody of his 3 kids, consisting of Dylan, with Mia Farrow and media outlets started narrating the case, consisting of the accusation.

Detectives concluded at the time that the more youthful Farrow had actually not been abused, according to The New york city Times, which covered the custody procedures.
At the time, acting Justice Elliott Wilk of New york city’s State Supreme Court “said it was unlikely that Mr. Allen could be prosecuted for sexual abuse based on the evidence,” the paper reported. “But while a team of experts concluded that Dylan was not abused, the judge said he found the evidence inconclusive.”

“I loved my father,” Farrow stated throughout the 2018 interview. “I respected him. He was my hero. And that doesn’t obviously take away from what he did, but it does make the betrayal and the hurt that much more intense.”

Farrow is among numerous kids embraced by Mia Farrow and one of 2 Allen embraced throughout his more than a years-long relationship with the starlet.

The more youthful Farrow declared that her daddy molested her at her mom’s Connecticut house on August 4, 1992.

Allen informed “CBS Sunday Morning” of the accusation “There was no logic to it on the face of it.”

“Why would a guy who’s 57 years old and never was accused of anything in my life, I’m suddenly going to drive up in the middle of a contentious custody fight at Mia’s country home yet,” he stated. “I didn’t think it required any investigation, even.”

He likewise resolved his relationship with Soon-Yi Previn, whom Mia Farrow had actually embraced with artist André Previn.

Allen’s relationship with Mia Farrow ended after she found naked images of her then-21-year-old child in the then-56-year-old filmmaker’s home.

“The last thing in the world that anybody wanted was to hurt anybody’s feelings,” Allen stated. “What we wanted to do was to eventually make it known that we had a relationship.”

The couple have actually now been wed 23 years and embraced 2 children who remain in college, which Allen stated, “They don’t give two baby girls to someone they think is a pedophile.”

CNN has actually connected to agents for Allen for extra remark.

There has actually been restored interest in the accusation in the wake of the battle over the publication of Allen’s current autobiography, “Apropos of Nothing,” and HBO’s brand-new docuseries, “Allen v. Farrow.”
