Diane Keaton Woody Allen Mia Farrow

The controversy surrounding Woody Allen and Mia Farrow's bizarre family continues but Diane Keaton doesn't believe the rumours alleging Allen molested his adopted daughter.

Allen's adopted daughter with Mia Farrow, Dylan Farrow, wrote an editorial in The New York Times in which she alleges Allen sexually assaulted her when she was seven years old.

Woody Allen Responds To Dylan Farrow Allegations, Questions Mother's Influence


Woody Allen Mia Farrow

The last week has been dominated by Dylan Farrow’s allegations that Woody Allen sexually abused her when she was 7-years-old. Now, after some relative silence, Allen has issued a response, doubting whether Farrow even penned the open letter.

Woody AllenSerious allegations of sexual abuse have been levied against Woody Allen

"Not that I doubt Dylan hasn’t come to believe she’s been molested, but if from the age of 7 a vulnerable child is taught by a strong mother to hate her father because he is a monster who abused her, is it so inconceivable that after many years of this indoctrination the image of me Mia wanted to establish had taken root?"

The couple separated in 1992 when Farrow discovered Allen was having a relationship with her adoptive daughter, Soon-Yi.

The case was brought to court in September 1993 and a number of rulings dismissed Allen's abuse charges, according to The American Law Library. However, the Connecticut State Attorney Frank Maco, announced that he had "probable cause" to prosecute Allen, he was dropping the case in order to protect Dylan from "the trauma of appearing in court."

In her brief speech, Keaton said their 45-year friendship fills her heart with "pride, affection and even love."
