‘I Believe My Sister’: Ronan Farrow Responds To Brother Moses’ Account Of What Happened In Woody Allen & Mia Farrow’s Household
As we reported on Wednesday, after briefly speaking about the alleged incident in 2014, Moses published an essay accusing mother Mia Farrow of abuse, and attempted to dispel the “inaccurate and misleading attacks” on the filmmaker.
In a lengthy message on Twitter, Ronan defended his mother against Moses’ assertions, saying she “did an extraordinary job raising us.” He wrote:
“Not worth saying much to dignify the repeated campaign to discredit my sister, often by attacking our mother… This happens every time Dylan speaks, so this is all I’ll offer: My mother did an extraordinary job raising us, and none of my siblings with whom I’ve spoken ever witnessed anything but love and care from a single mom who went through hell to keep her kids safe. Our brother Moses said the same thing in statements dating back many years.”
In regards to Dylan’s accusations, the journalist says her claims are “backed by a significant body of credible evidence and eyewitnesses to abuse.”
“After relentless legal scrutiny of my mother’s parenting ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ and efforts to discredit her ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ she was granted sole custody to protect us from Woody Allen. We all grew up with offers from him to speak out against our mother in exchange for support. (He made helping to pay for my college education contingent on turning against her and lying. I declined.) My sister’s allegation is backed by a significant body of credible evidence and eyewitnesses to abuse.”
Although Ronan was hesitant to respond to the “smear campaign,” he ultimately did as he “believe[s] [his] sister.”
And after Moses’ post went viral, Dylan herself responded on social media by calling her brother “a troubled person.” As you know, Allen — who was investigated, but not charged — has repeatedly denied Dylan’s accusations.
