Dylan Farrow Bravely Responds To Woody Allen’s Latest Defense! Sets The Facts Straight!

| Filed under: Sad SadWoody AllenFamily

Dylan Farrow responds to Woody Allen's latest response

It took a lot for her to speak out once, and she’s not afraid to do it again!

Dylan Farrow recently penned an open letter which detailed the alleged sexual abuse that Woody Allen inflicted on her as a child.

He had a very lengthy response, nearly a week after his daugther’s letter was published, in which he defended himself and blamed her mom Mia Farrow!

Some still strongly believe Woody, and think that Dylan made this up! Well, the 28-year-old had some more words for those people. She starts out saying:

“Once again, Woody Allen is attacking me and my family in an effort to discredit and silence me – but nothing he says or writes can change the truth. For 20 years, I have never wavered in describing what he did to me. I will carry the memories of surviving these experiences for the rest of my life… He insists my mother brought criminal charges – in fact, it was a pediatrician who reported the incident to the police based on my firsthand account. He suggests that no one complained of his misconduct prior to his assault on me – court documents show that he was in treatment for what his own therapist described as “inappropriate” behavior with me from as early as 1991. He offers a carefully worded claim that he passed a lie detector test – in fact, he refused to take the test administered by the state police (he hired someone to administer his own test, which authorities refused to accept as evidence).”

It’s hard to argue with the facts, isn’t it?

As for how Dylan is doing, as a person, with all of this going on, she said:

“From the bottom of my heart, I will be forever grateful for the outpouring of support I have received from survivors and countless others. If speaking out about my experience can help others stand up to their tormentors, it will be worth the pain and suffering my father continues to inflict on me. Woody Allen has an arsenal of lawyers and publicists but the one thing he does not have on his side is the truth. I hope this is the end of his vicious attacks and of the media campaign by his lawyers and publicists, as he’s promised. I won’t let the truth be buried and I won’t be silenced.”

Keep speaking out, girl!

This is such a horrible situation all of the way around! We hope it somehow finds resolution!

You can read Dylan’s entire statement (below):

“Once again, Woody Allen is attacking me and my family in an effort to discredit and silence me – but nothing he says or writes can change the truth. For 20 years, I have never wavered in describing what he did to me. I will carry the memories of surviving these experiences for the rest of my life.

His op-ed is the latest rehash of the same legalese, distortions, and outright lies he has leveled at me for the past 20 years. He insists my mother brought criminal charges – in fact, it was a pediatrician who reported the incident to the police based on my firsthand account. He suggests that no one complained of his misconduct prior to his assault on me – court documents show that he was in treatment for what his own therapist described as “inappropriate” behavior with me from as early as 1991. He offers a carefully worded claim that he passed a lie detector test – in fact, he refused to take the test administered by the state police (he hired someone to administer his own test, which authorities refused to accept as evidence). These and other misrepresentations have been rebutted in more detail by independent, highly respected journalists, including this most recent article here: http://www.vanityfair.com/online/daily/2014/02/woody-allen-sex-abuse-10-facts.

With all the attempts to misrepresent the facts, it is important to be reminded of the truth contained in court documents from the only final ruling in this case, by the New York Supreme Court in 1992. In denying my father all access to me, that court:
Debunked the “experts” my father claims exonerated him, calling them “colored by their loyalty to Mr. Allen”, criticizing the author of their report (who never met me) for destroying all supporting documentation, and calling their conclusions “sanitized and therefore less credible”.

Included testimony from babysitters who witnessed inappropriate sexual behavior by my father toward me.

Found 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. Mr. Allen’s resort to the stereotypical ‘woman scorned’ defense is an injudicious attempt to divert attention from his failure to act as a responsible parent and adult.”

Concluded that the evidence “…proves that Mr. Allen’s behavior toward Dylan was grossly inappropriate and that measures must be taken to protect her.”

Finally, the Connecticut State prosecutor found “probable cause” to prosecute, but made the decision not to in an effort to protect “the child victim”, given my fragile state.

From the bottom of my heart, I will be forever grateful for the outpouring of support I have received from survivors and countless others. If speaking out about my experience can help others stand up to their tormentors, it will be worth the pain and suffering my father continues to inflict on me. Woody Allen has an arsenal of lawyers and publicists but the one thing he does not have on his side is the truth. I hope this is the end of his vicious attacks and of the media campaign by his lawyers and publicists, as he’s promised. I won’t let the truth be buried and I won’t be silenced.”

    He is "attacking" her by writing a response? Oh give it a rest.
    She was 7 years old and coached by a vindictive mother. How could she possibly know of all the undercurrents in their non-married relationship. Such a crock.

    I think he did it. Make him go on Dr. Phil and take the lie detector test.

    Where is all this he said she said drama supposed to go? Dylan can't prove anything. Do Dylan and Mia need money,now that the child support gravy train has stopped?



  5. 5

    Whether he did it or not, Woody Allen should never be trusted. I never trust anyone who talks that much and says so little.

    Their motive is to blacken his name and to deprive him of any further awards in the movie industry.So stupid. He rarely shows up to those things anyway.

    Attacking her??? How about defending himself.
    She's gonna lose sympathy fast if she keeps on whining and attacking. Give it a rest.
    What is done is done. Get more therapy. You are not going to take away that he
    is a great film maker. And that is how most people see him.

    Re: Kate – I don't think he needs to do anything. He made his statement, the crazy mother and the sad child she raised say otherwise, the only thing left is for people to make up their own minds in a case that can't be proven.

    I think his movies suck but that does not make him a child molester.
    He lived peacefully with Soon-yi in a 20 year marriage until Mia and her misguided kids decided to make drame again. Let's hope it wasn't all ploy for ratings for Ronan's show.

    Are we to believe that Woody - a known claustrophobic - took Dylan to a small space in the attic? Come on. Incredulous that anyone would buy into this.

    Dylan is recounting the scene from the movie Cape Fear, where DeNiro puts his finger into Juliette Lewis's mouth. Someone coached her.doh.

    Re: Verdad – Name calling is always the last resort for stupid people who have nothing useful to say. So is making unsubstantiated accusations.

    Mia is an immoral woman who stops at nothing to destroy other people's happiness. Just like she destroyed the Previns marriage and fornicated with Frank Sinatra while he was married.

    Re: tacogirl – I am afraid not, all of the sudden she is becoming relevant!!! Child molestation rarely goes unnoticed, she says it had been on-going before the attic episode? She must have gone through examination, first and foremost this is what happens in a regular proceeding. If she says it's on-going but she doesn't have one single cross examination to back up her claim (or her moher) then I am afraid she is not to be accounted for in any legal setting. People can believe what they want to believe but if her testimony is not law abiding (with scientific evidence), she doesn't have a case (at least ob esustained overtime).

    Woody's flicks are boring. The only one of his movies I liked was Vicky Cristina Barcelona. If it's true, then why did Dylan wait so long to say anything? That's what I'd like to know. She acts like she's the only woman in the world who's ever been molested by someone in a position of trust. If I had a dollar for everyone in my own social circle who went through something like that, then I'd be RICH!! But the people I know aren't famous, so their words will never be published by the NY Times. I also hate this trend of women naming their daughters Dylan– which used to be a perfectly respectable boy's name 30 years ago.

    Are pedophile Woody's friends going to come out of the woodwork to defend him on all the gossip sites? I might "sort of" believe him if he had taken the police polygraph test, but he refused to take it. Then his lawyers paid someone to give him one, which means it was rigged. Someone besides Woody could have taken it. If he were innocent he would have taken the policy polygraph without blinking an eye. He refused it because he was guilty.

    Re: Verdad – And you know that how exactly ?

  23. ColliFlower215 says – reply to this


    23

    I mean he held an affair and later married his adopted daughter, a child he raised as his own. If he is capable of doing so with one why is it so hard to believe he wouldn't do with the others?

  24. Michele says – reply to this


    24

    I believe he is guilty guilty guilty. He married his step-daughter for God's sake, I couldn't watch him after that. Not only was she underage when he took up with her, she was his STEP-DAUGHTER! Creep.

    Good for Dylan.



  25. 25

    He is an asshole!!!



  26. 26

    Someone slap him across his face hard. he is disgusting!!



  27. 27

    Re: ColliFlower215 – Get your facts straight :

    1) Farrow and Allen never married and kept separate homes.
    2) Soon-Yi full name is Farrow Previn (adopted daughter of Farrow and André Previn). Allen NEVER adopted her.

    God ! Is it so hard to use Internet ?

    The truth will come out. He will die from this infliction on a young girl. I totally believe Dylan and think its sick to condemn her for telling the truth. Kids do t lie and there is no reason she would do this for her mother. She kept it hidden because it was too painful. Sorry he is liar and the truth will set her free. If he dies with this lie then he has to stand and give account for the wrong he did. His wife is also a serious freak to fall in love and marry this man I just boggles my mind how effed up Hollywood is.

    Reading through the posts I am surprised there is still so much ignorance about abuse survivors. Confronting the abuser over what they did is part of the healing process, it is a way to make progress.
    Hopefully this will help her with her post traumatic stress disorder.

    I am also surprised that with decades of speaking about life partners and gay families before gay marriage was legal, that people do not understand that the ties of a family are formed through the heart for years. A partner is not just someone that someone is dating. It is a relationship of trust and commitment with many life partnerships having last longer than many legal marriages.

    A man who was SEXUALLY ATTRACTED to his step daughter AND ACCEPTED/EXCHANGED NAKED PHOTOS OF with his his stepdaughter DESPITE BEING IN HER LIFE AS A FATHER FIGURE FOR 12 YEARS SINCE THE AGE OF 8!!! The fact that he's still married to her DOES NOT CHANGE THAT FACT nor does it negate the element of Pedophilia in this story. All the sick bastards and bitches (including Hollywood elites) defending this jerk-off are as fucking twisted as he is. If this was a nobody there would be a lynch mob for his head. Instead they're all siding with him because he produces movies.



  36. 36

    I believe Dylan and I'm proud of her for standing up. Why? Well, Woody met Mia's adopted daughter Soon Yi when she was 8! Then he goes behind Mia's back and later on fucks the kid when she probably hit puberty. To me that is just vile and the most disgusting thing to do. I don't trust Woody Allen and his movies SUCK! I think it's awful that Hollywood turns the cheek in these situation validating this type of species when he's clearly a piece of shit.



  37. 37

    To Joe; Your a fucking idiot. If he was innocent why wouldn't he just take the fucking lie detector test. As a Clinical PhD Student you cant just be brainwashed at the age of 7. Hopefully your child or sister never gets molested. You'll probaly be the last one to believe them.



  38. 38

    I 100% believe Dylan. I support her

    Re: Jamie123x – "As a Clinical PhD Student you cant just be brainwashed at the age of 7."
    Maybe you should wait until you graduate to make such a silly claim, as it's about as common as it gets.

    Go to the cops already. Stop putting your letters online. Talk to each other's attorneys. The general public seriously doesn't care.

    Re: Michele – she wasn't underage when they started dating and she was never his step daughter. get your facts straight.
    These two are trying to drag his name name through the mud again because she is a hateful scorned woman now that he getting a lot of recognition for his movie. how convenient the timing is huh



  42. 42

    I am so impressed with how strong she is!!!!! Going up against a famous person is tough, but it is especially tough since it is her father. What a role model for abuse victims!!



  43. 43

    Re: BeautifulKiller – Actually, Soonyi was 19 when Woody left Mia for her. And, Woody has said in interviews that they were "in love with each other for years before that." So, if she was only legal for 1 year, how was it possible for it NOT to have been illegal. He later changed his story when his PR team did the math, and there was an outrage. So, they've changed his wikipedia etc to say it started when she was 19. But, that was the PUBLIC relationship. He has admitted it went on way before that during his marriage to MIa. (mia cheated too, but not with a f-ing child)

    Soonyi WAS his wife's child. Woody never adopted her, but she was his step-child. A step-child is defined as "a child of one's husband or wife by a previous marriage." Everything you said was factually incorrect.

    It's really sad to see so many people siding with Allen and claiming Dylan only wants money, publicity, and/or attention. I have read the 33 page document from the judge (link in the VF article referenced). The judge seemed convinced of her story, and contrary to Allen's responses, there were witnesses that day to inappropriate behavior and the 2 of them had disappeared for a period of time. Furthermore, the judge found that the idea of Mia coaching Dylan was highly unlikely due to her originally speaking with Allen's therapists over if Dylan was making it up or not. The investigation done that Allen references wasn't thorough in the least - they didn't even interview the children that they were writing their investigation about, nor did they speak with Mia…they only spoke with Allen, then wrote a report that the judge, prosecutor, and doctors that had met with Dylan all felt was bogus and completely unreliable. I came to this story unbiased and read everything I could, the 33 page findings report from the judge being the most damning of it all.

    I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, >>>>>>>> YellWork.Com

    Erm how is she being brave? Her life isn't in danger, she's not risking it for X. Bringing up bad memories and having a ghost writer write something over the internet =/= bravery. Derp

    Re: Mia – Society doesnt even know what a pedophile is. Society's definition of "pedophile" is so convoluted and illogical .. I dont even like to use the word. In fact, I havent called anybody a pedophile since I was 16 when I realized society cant even define the word. One minute its "an attraction to people under puberty" then its "attraction to someone under 18" and then I hear older women call 34 year old men "sick" for dating a 22 year old while calling 55 year old women 'cougars" for dating a 22 year old. And then I hear males call older men pedos for dating a 19 year old while calling 13 yaer old males "lucky" for nailing a female school employee. If a man is attracted to a 17 year old who appears 21 and is in college and has a 140 IQ, he's a pedo but not if she is 18 in high school and appears 15 and has an 80 IQ. If a 16 year old girl over the legal consent seduces a 32 year old … .he's a pedophile? What are the odds that a girl would just so HAPPEN to seduce a clinical pedophile? "Pedophile" is like the word "curvy". too many definitions to be of use. Either you are a criminal or you arent. I'll pass on the word "pedo". Its a mess.

  57. I'm for the door says – reply to this


    57

    And of course, everybody with EARS knows that white females are 1000000000% immune to the word pedophile. When Mary K had a baby with a 13 yaer old boy, all anybody heard was "she is his LOOOVVERRRR" not "she is his pedo". Nah, shove the word "pedo" up a baboons butt. A person can be anti molestation and anti word "pedophile" at the same time. White females will NEVER call white females a pedophile. Not ever. I almost protest that word on that mere basis alone. I dont want to see people getting molested either. But unlike MOST people in society… i know that a molester can be any age (including UNDERAGE) or gender or sexuality. But you know society and its addiction to stereotypes: "its some older man".
    No. Thats just when people NOTICE IT.
