An allegation of sexual abuse is a serious matter, and according to the law, sexual abuse has its punishment. But without knowing the proper fact’s we cannot end up with judgments.
Similarly, in the case of Woody Allen, the allegation of sexual abuse came from his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow.
Who is Woody Allen?
Woody Allen is an American comedian, filmmaker, and also a director. He is known for his two famous movies directed by him which are “Manhattan” and “Annie Hall” Woody Allen has already been apart of a controversy in 1992 when he started dating Soon-Yi Previn. Soon-Yi Previn is an adoptive daughter of Mia Farrow, and Woody Allen has also dated Mia Farrow.
Relation between Mia and Allen?
Mia Farrow is an American actress and a human rights activist, and know for the film Rosemary’s Baby. Mia Farrow and Woody Allen had started dating in 1980. Though they never married, they adopted two children Dylan and Moses. In 1992 Farrow discovered that Allen was dating Soon-Yi.
Dylan’s story of sexual assault.
Dylan’s story regarding her sexual assault by Allen. She claimed that when she was seven years old, Allen took her to the attic and sexually assaulted her in Mia’s home.
Dylan said that when she was getting assaulted by him he said to her that “lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set”.
She wrote in her essay “He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we’d go to Paris and I’d be a star in his movies,”
Though Allen has been a scandal for more than once it cannot be a rumor. In fact, Allen denied the fact.
Not only this whenever Allen went to visit Dylan she used to lock herself in the bathroom refusing to come out for hours. She often complained that she had headaches, and stomachache whenever Allen used to visit, but all her symptoms would suddenly disappear as soon as Allen left, said the babysitter.
