Dylan Farrow recently wrote an open letter about her adopted father Woody Allen’s alleged sexual abuse of her at the young age of only seven-years-old. Most of us were sickened by her report, considering that Hollywood and the rest of the world celebrates this guy and she has to live with the memories of what she said he did to her.
We don’t know what the right answer is with regard to what it was that she experienced — we weren’t there. But some have said that her mother Mia Farrow has planted the idea in her head, poisoned Dylan against Woody and basically brainwashed her children against him because she was that angry of his relationship with Soon-Yi Previn.
The 28 year old also denied she came forward before the Oscars in a bid to ruin the ‘Blue Jasmine’ director’s career and told PEOPLE.com: “People are saying that I am not actually remembering what I remember. People are saying that my ‘evil mother’ brainwashed me because they refuse to believe that my sick, evil father would ever molest me, because we live in this society where victim blaming and inexcusable behavior – this taboo against shaming the famous at the expense of their victims – is accepted and excused.”
Dylan is very upset by Moses’ decision to stand by Woody, who vehemently denies the allegations, and speak up for him.
She said: “My brother has broken my heart. Moses divorced himself from the family a long time ago. I always missed him. I loved him and I kept him in my thoughts. These lies – this betrayal – is unfathomable to me coming from a brother I loved and cherished and grew up with.”
I hope that she can move on knowing that she has publicly addressed the issue, but I believe that she is a victim of something — whether it be abuse, denial of said abuse or the poisoning of her against her father. The truth lies in there somewhere and we may never know exactly what happened — we just hope that she receives closure from her statement.
