Woody Allen Creative Wall

Moses Farrow does not believe the molestation claims made by his sister Dylan against their adopted father, Woody Allen, telling People magazine, “Of course Woody did not molest my sister.”

Dylan Farrow penned an open letter published by the New York Times that detailed her claims against Allen.

But Moses believes his mother, Mia Farrow, played a role in Dylan’s story. He tells People, “My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister. And I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi.”

Moses, who is estranged from most of his family (but is close to Allen and Soon-Yi), explains, “The day in question, there were six or seven of us in the house. We were all in public rooms and no one, not my father or sister, was off in any private spaces. My mother was conveniently out shopping. I don’t know if my sister really believes she was molested or is trying to please her mother. Pleasing my mother was very powerful motivation because to be on her wrong side was horrible.”

Dylan responded to Moses’ accusations, telling the mag, “This is such a betrayal to me and my whole family . My memories are the truth and they are mine and I will live with that for the rest of my life … My mother never coached me. She never planted false memories in my brain. My memories are mine.”
