Moses Farrow has come out in support of his father Woody Allen days after Dylan Farrow detailed the sexual abuse she said she suffered at the hands of her father in an explosive open letter to The New York Times.
The 36-year-old family therapist has blamed his estranged mother Mia Farrow for poisoning her children against Allen.
“My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister,” Moses Farrow told People magazine.
“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 and Dylan, 28, both adopted by Allen and Farrow, and their brother Ronan, 26, were in the center of a 1993 custody battle in which both sides testified about Allen’s affair with Farrow’s adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, whom Allen went on to marry in 1997.
Farrow was awarded custody of the couple’s three children. Allen, 78, who was investigated but not charged with molestation, has for decades denied abusing Dylan, maintaining that Farrow, 69, coached Dylan, an accusation Farrow has always denied.
