(PCM) We recently shared a few excerpts from the letter that Dylan Farrow, adopted daughter of director Woody Allen and actress Mia Farrow, shared with the New York Times recounting the sexual abuse she endured as a child at the hand of Woody Allen. Now, Woody Allen has come forward and released a statement of his own addressing the allegations of sexual abuse.
Woody Allen’s publicist made the following statement: ”Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful”. Allen’s lawyer also commented claiming: ”It is tragic that after 20 years a story engineered by a vengeful lover resurfaces after it was fully vetted and rejected by independent authorities. The one to blame for Dylan’s distress is neither Dylan nor Woody Allen.”
The lawyer is seemingly placing all of the blame on Mia Farrow. Dylan’s brother Ronan Farrow has expressed support for his sister via Twitter saying: ”I love and support my sister and think her words speak for themselves.”
Woody Allen was investigated on the sexual abuse charges back in 1992, but was never charged with any crime. While Dylan’s letter did not seek a type of legal retrial, it did urge the court of public opinion to re-think their support of Woody Allen and all the honors he has been receiving lately.
