It’s been a bitter, back and forth battle of he-said, she-said that has lasted more than 20 years.
Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s relationship has been full of shocking revelations from both parties, including accusations that the Oscar-winning director once sexually molested their adoptive daughter Dylan.
Just last weekend, Dylan, now 28, penned a letter to the New York Times detailing the abuse she says Allen inflicted upon her. The published allegation has reopened old wounds and caused a new wave of controversy.
60 Minutes dug into its own archives this week and rereleased an interview they conducted with Woody in 1992, while he was in the middle of being investigated for child abuse. He tells Steve Kroft that not only did he never harm Dylan or any of Mia’s other children, but that Farrow and her actions should be the one’s on trial!
According to Woody, Mia gave him a very disturbing Valentine’s Day card that included a picture of her with all of her children. Each kid in the photo however has a needle sticking out of them and Mia has a steak knife stabbed through her heart!
On the handle of the knife was a picture of Soon-Yi Previn, Mia’s adoptive daughter, whom Woody married in 1997.
The TV news magazine had pictures of what that scary valentine looked like (pics below) and Allen admitted he found the card so violent that he feared for his life!
He shared the whole ordeal, explaining:
"She sent me a Valentine card. She didn't send it to me; she gave it to me. And I said, 'Oh, thanks,' you know. And I went downstairs, I got into my car and I opened it up, and there was a very, very, very chilling valentine, meticulously worked on. One hesitates to say psychotically worked on. And I got scared because, you know, that was, that was one of the times that I thought, 'My God, this is really,’ if you look at the thing, it's quite frightening.”
Frightening, yes. But is it real?!
While it would appear Woody has the valentine to corroborate his story, no one was there to see Mia give it to Woody.
To say this situation is just a mess would be the understatement of the century!
The judicial system found Woody to be innocent. But the verdict in the court of public opinion has yet to be reached.
