Hollywood is rapidly exiling predators. But Woody Allen’s movie is still coming out.
The District Attornys office investigated for a year. They concluded the child had either been coached or made it up.
Mia Farrow and Woody Allens oldest adopted child Moses Farrow at the time was 14. Now as an adult, and interestingly working as a family counsellor, he has publicly claimed that Mia Farrow made up the story and daily brainwashed the young children with stories about Woody Allen. He also claims she was physically abusive.
Soon Yi Previn was 18 years old. She was adopted by Mia Farrow and her second husband Andre Previn.
Family affair: Woody Allen ‘s wife Soon-Yi, wearing the tan sweater, left the restaurant with Lindsay
Woody Allen and wife Soon Yi Previn
Mia Farrow met Andre Previn when he was married to her best friend Dory Previn, and seduced him. The shock of learning of this affair sent Dory Previn into a depressive state so severe she had to be institutionalised and received electroshock therapy.
Soon Yi Previn was one of several children they adopted, she was not adopted by Woody Allen. Woody Allen and Mia Farrow did not live together. He only occasionally saw her.
At the time Woody Allen and Soon Yi Previn began their affair, Mia Farrow had been seeing for some time her first husband Frank Sinatra. She was in a relationship with Woody Allen and Frank Sinatra had remarried.
Mia Farrow seduced her best friends husband and had an affair with him behind her back.
When Woody Allen began to have an affair, Mia Farrow was already having an affair.
Mia Farrow has in recent years admitted she thinks her biological son with Woody Allen might in fact be Frank Sinatras son. If you look at a picture of Ronan Farrow its impossible to not see the resemblance.
This means that in the alimony settlement Mia Farrow lied and defrauded Woody Allen.
One of Mia Farrows older adopted children alleges she was physically abusive.
Woody Allen had an affair with the 18 year old adopted daughter of a woman he was in a long term relationship.
Mia Farrow had previously seduced her best friends husband, was already having an affair when her current partner began his, conceived a child with the married man she was having an affair with, lied about the child’s parentage and defrauded the victim, further made up allegations of child molestation, and according to one source may have herself committed child abuse.
I ask you: while two wrongs never make a right, do not multiple wrongs outweight one?
And for my finale: Mia Farrows brother is a convicted child molester.
Lets just put aside the DA investigation and its conclusion and accept the childs claim, and also put aside how convoluted the claim is, and accept it at face value for a moment.
What if in the heated highly emotional state of the household during the breakup of the relationship and Mia Farrows daily raging about Woody Allen and allegedly even abusing the children according to one source – could the child in this situation transfer blame from one to another, what if Mia Farrow upon hearing this accusation against her brother and feeling shocked and ashamed didn’t turn to anger and revenge and coach the child into blaming Woody Allen instead?
Is it so inconceivable that someone who would seduce her best friends husband, has an affair and yet becomes enraged on discovering that her partner is having one too, someone who passes of one mans child as another, and someone who according to one source abuses her children, is it so hard to conceive that someone who would do these things might convince an emotionally distraught and easily manipulated child into blaming someone else?

10 undeniable facts about Woody Allen abuse allegation
Mia never went to the police about the allegation of sexual abuse. Her lawyer told her on August 5, 1992, to take the seven-year-old Dylan to a pediatrician, who was bound by law to report Dylan’s story of sexual violation to law enforcement and did so on August 6.
Allen had been in therapy for alleged inappropriate behavior toward Dylan with a child psychologist before the abuse allegation was presented to the authorities or made public. Mia Farrow had instructed her babysitters that Allen was never to be left alone with Dylan.
Allen refused to take a polygraph administered by the Connecticut state police. Instead, he took one from someone hired by his legal team. The Connecticut state police refused to accept the test as evidence. The state attorney, Frank Maco, says that Mia was never asked to take a lie-detector test during the investigation.
Allen subsequently lost four exhaustive court battles—a lawsuit, a disciplinary charge against the prosecutor, and two appeals—and was made to pay more than $1 million in Mia’s legal fees. Judge Elliott Wilk, the presiding judge in Allen’s custody suit against Farrow, concluded that there is “no credible evidence to support Mr. Allen’s contention that Ms. Farrow coached Dylan or that Ms. Farrow acted upon a desire for revenge against him for seducing Soon-Yi.”
In his 33-page decision, Judge Wilk found that Mr. Allen’s behavior toward Dylan was “grossly inappropriate and that measures must be taken to protect her.” The judge also recounts Farrow’s misgivings regarding Allen’s behavior toward Dylan from the time she was between two and three years old. According to the judge’s decision, Farrow told Allen, “You look at her [Dylan] in a sexual way. You fondled her . . . You don’t give her any breathing room. You look at her when she’s naked.”
Dylan’s claim of abuse was consistent with the testimony of three adults who were present that day. On the day of the alleged assault, a babysitter of a friend told police and gave sworn testimony that Allen and Dylan went missing for 15 or 20 minutes, while she was at the house. Another babysitter told police and also swore in court that on that same day, she saw Allen with his head on Dylan’s lap facing her body, while Dylan sat on a couch “staring vacantly in the direction of a television set.” A French tutor for the family told police and testified that that day she found Dylan was not wearing underpants under her sundress. The first babysitter also testified she did not tell Farrow that Allen and Dylan had gone missing until after Dylan made her statements. These sworn accounts contradict Moses Farrow’s recollection of that day in People magazine.
The Yale-New Haven Hospital Child Sex Abuse Clinic’s finding that Dylan had not been sexually molested, cited repeatedly by Allen’s attorneys, was not accepted as reliable by Judge Wilk, or by the Connecticut state prosecutor who originally commissioned them. The state prosecutor, Frank Maco, engaged the Yale-New Haven team to determine whether Dylan would be able to perceive facts correctly and be able to repeat her story on the witness stand. The panel consisted of two social workers and a pediatrician, Dr. John Leventhal, who signed off on the report but who never saw Dylan or Mia Farrow. No psychologists or psychiatrists were on the panel. The social workers never testified; the hospital team only presented a sworn deposition by Dr. Leventhal, who did not examine Dylan. All the notes from the report were destroyed. Her confidentiality was then violated, and Allen held a news conference on the steps of Yale University to announce the results of the case. The report concluded Dylan had trouble distinguishing fantasy from reality. (For example, she had told them there were “dead heads” in the attic and called sunset “the magic hour.” In fact, Mia kept wigs from her movies on styrofoam blocks in a trunk in the attic.) The doctor subsequently backed down from his contention. The Connecticut state police, the state attorney, and Judge Wilk all had serious reservations about the report’s reliability.
Allen changed his story about the attic where the abuse allegedly took place. First, Allen told investigators he had never been in the attic where the alleged abuse took place. After his hair was found on a painting in the attic, he admitted that he might have stuck his head in once or twice. A top investigator concluded that his account was not credible.
The state attorney, Maco, said publicly he didhave probable cause to press charges against Allen but declined, due to the fragility of the “child victim.” Maco told me that he refused to put Dylan through an exhausting trial, and without her on the stand, he could not prosecute Allen.
I am not a longtime friend of Mia Farrow’s, and I did not make any deal with her. I have been personally accused of helping my “long-time friend” Mia Farrow place the story that ran in Vanity Fair’s November 2013 issue as part of an effort to help launch Ronan Farrow’s media career. I have also been accused of agreeing to some type of deal with Mia Farrow guaranteeing that the sexual-abuse allegation against Woody Allen would be revisited. For the record, I met Mia Farrow for the first time in 2003, more than 10 years after the first piece was published, at a nonfiction play she appeared in for a benefit in Washington, D.C. I saw her and Dylan again the next day. That is the last time I saw her until I approached her in April 2013 to do a story about her family and how they had fared over the years. I talked to eight of her children, including Dylan and a reluctant Ronan. There was no deal of any kind. Moses Farrow declined to be interviewed for the 2013 piece.
Of course Ronan Farrow is intimiately tied to the Weinstein effect, since he is, after all, the person whose expose on Weinstein was ruthlessly suppressed, as well as Mia Farrow’s son. Why was Weinstein such a target of Farrow’s ire? Perhaps it’s because Weinstein is the man who Woody Allen himself credits for pulling his life back together and giving him a chance when no one else would. Against threats, against professional spies and agents, against ruthless media suppression, Farrow risked his very life to shine the light on Weinstein in toppling one of Hollywood’s pillars. Perhaps it’s time to revisit the other sexual misconduct allegations which he has repeatedly brought to light over the years. The life of Woody Allen’s protector and benefactor is now in shambles, a public disgrace. Undoubtedly Mr. Farrow has unfinished business.

So she first went to her lawyer first?
How do they know what he was in therapy for? Since that is bound by confidentiality clauses.
And since when does an adult see a child psychologist for help with inappropriate behaviour?
Polygraphs are inadmissible and unreliable. The American legal system is alone in the world in accepting them. Professionals dismiss them.
What court cases? The DAs office never prosecuted, they dropped the case citing the child had either been coached or made it up. The only case was when he sued one of the prosecutors for defamation for saying we could have tried him but didnt.
How does Allen go to the house after his relationship with Farrow has ended, take a kid up to an attic without anyone noticing when its full of children and nannies, and be away for an extended period of time when he has only supervised visits?
As for the statement of nannies, didnt Farrow fire one after she refused to make any claims against Allen.
DA investigated for a year
None of this proves anything.
Its gossip and rumour and gaslighting.
It doesn’t dispel the pattern of deceptive behaviour of Mia Farrows. It doesn’t explain Mia Farrows fraud that she laughs about on national television. It doesn’t discredit Moses Farrows claims.
And it doesn’t address my supposition about Mia Farrows brother.

I’ll just leave you with Ronan Farrow’s own words on the matter, which tells us much about his motivation to write his expose on Weinstein that opened up the floodgates that have enabled women, children, and other victims in Hollywood to speak up about their abuse without fear. It’s pretty clear that Weinstein’s providing of funds and cover for Allen hurt the Farrows very deeply, which what underlay his deep desire to expose the culture of sexual predation in Hollywood. You talk of “gaslighting” and “supposition” regarding Ronan, but in exposing Weinstein, his credibility in exposing the culture of abuse, molestation, grooming, and the agents and PR machine that comes into play to protect these predators has been absolved beyond reproach. Despite those who tried to suppress him at NBC and the Atlantic on Weinstein’s orders, including perhaps unwitting apologists and defenders like yourself, the so called conspiracies of sexual abuse that he’s been talking about for years have become an unstoppable, undeniable, public truth.
Here is exactly what charges not being pursued looked like in my sister’s case in 1993: The prosecutor met with my mother and sister. Dylan already was deeply traumatized — by the assault and the subsequent legal battle that forced her to repeat the story over and over again. (And she did tell her story repeatedly, without inconsistency, despite the emotional toll it took on her.) The longer that battle, the more grotesque the media circus surrounding my family grew. My mother and the prosecutor decided not to subject my sister to more years of mayhem. In a rare step, the prosecutor announced publicly that he had “probable cause” to prosecute Allen, and attributed the decision not to do so to “the fragility of the child victim.”
My mother still feels it was the only choice she could make to protect her daughter. But it is ironic: My mother’s decision to place Dylan’s well-being above all else became a means for Woody Allen to smear them both.
Very often, women with allegations do not or cannot bring charges. Very often, those who do come forward pay dearly, facing off against a justice system and a culture designed to take them to pieces. A reporter’s role isn’t to carry water for those women. But it is our obligation to include the facts, and to take them seriously. Sometimes, we’re the only ones who can play that role.
Confronting a subject with allegations from women or children, not backed by a simple, dispositive legal ruling is hard. It means having those tough newsroom conversations, making the case for burning bridges with powerful public figures. It means going up against angry fans and angry publicists.
There are more reporters than ever showing that courage, and more outlets supporting them. Many are of a new generation, freed from the years of access journalism that can accrete around older publications. BuzzFeed has done pioneering reporting on recent Hollywood sexual assault stories. It was Gawker that asked why allegations against Bill Cosby weren’t taken more seriously. And it is heartening that The Hollywood Reporter asked me to write this response. Things are changing.
But the old-school media’s slow evolution has helped to create a culture of impunity and silence. Amazon paid millions to work with Woody Allen, bankrolling a new series and film. Actors, including some I admire greatly, continue to line up to star in his movies. “It’s not personal,” one once told me. But it hurts my sister every time one of her heroes like Louis C.K., or a star her age, like Miley Cyrus, works with Woody Allen. Personal is exactly what it is — for my sister, and for women everywhere with allegations of sexual assault that have never been vindicated by a conviction.
Tonight, the Cannes Film Festival kicks off with a new Woody Allen film. There will be press conferences and a red-carpet walk by my father and his wife (my sister). He’ll have his stars at his side — Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Jesse Eisenberg. They can trust that the press won’t ask them the tough questions. It’s not the time, it’s not the place, it’s just not done.
That kind of silence isn’t just wrong. It’s dangerous. It sends a message to victims that it’s not worth the anguish of coming forward. It sends a message about who we are as a society, what we’ll overlook, who we’ll ignore, who matters and who doesn’t.
