Woody Allen

I Did NOT Abuse Dylan

Experts Think Mia Coached Her to Lie

2/8/2014 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Woody Allen finally fired off a response to his daughter Dylan's molestation accusation -- vehemently denying it, and laying out expert testimony to back his claim that Mia Farrow concocted the whole story for revenge.

Allen says when Farrow first accused him 21 years ago ... he didn't even get a lawyer because he thought everyone would see she was obviously lying because she was angry about his relationship with her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi.

Further, in his op-ed for the New York Times,  Allen points out:  

- Dylan initially told a doctor she had NOT been molested
- he willingly took a lie detector test and passed ... while Mia refused to take one
- an expert sex abuse panel at Yale concluded Dylan had not been abused at all

Woody adds those Yale experts also determined ... "most likely a vulnerable, stressed-out 7-year-old was coached by Mia Farrow."

He also quotes Moses -- his eldest son with Mia, not the Bible guy -- who has said, "Of course Woody did not molest my sister."

Oh, and there's this major dig -- Woody says Mia was outraged by his relationship with the much younger Soon-Yi ... "despite the fact she had dated a much older Frank Sinatra when she was 19."

Revealed: The 1993 Custody Ruling Which Awarded Woody Allen’s Kids To Mia Farrow, Declaring His ‘Behavior Toward Dylan… Grossly Inappropriate’

Even though medical professionals at Yale-New Haven Hospital in Connecticut concluded in a report from 1993 that Woody Allen did not sexually abuse his then 7-year-old adopted daughter, Dylan, has obtained the custody ruling paperwork from the same year which states Allen actually incriminated himself and portrays a disturbing portrait of the film director.

“The credible testimony of Ms. Farrow, Dr. Coates, Dr. Leventhal and Mr. Allen does, however, prove that Mr. Allen’s behavior toward Dylan was grossly inappropriate and that measures must be taken to protect her,” the June 7, 1993, custody ruling between Allen and Mia Farrow reads.

Per the ruling, the custody of the three children they shared was given to Farrow and while it doesn’t conclude whether Allen sexually assaulted Dylan or not — a charge he vehemently denies — the do***ents do describe him as “self-absorbed, untrustworthy and insensitive.”

These do***ents have never been published in full online before today, Feb. 7.

“Ms. Farrow testified that Mr. Allen was overly attentive and demanding of Dylan’s time and attention,” the do***ents read. “He was aggressively affectionate, providing her with little space of her own and no respect for the integrity of her body.”

The ruling on custody was handed down by Justice Elliott Wilk, who concluded that the report which exonerated Allen by the Yale-New Haven medical professionals was “sanitized and, therefore, less credible” and also said “the notes of the team members were destroyed prior to the issuance of the report, which, presumably, is an amalgamation of their independent impressions and observations.”

It’s noted the medical professionals were also unwilling to testify at the custody trial, except a deposition given by Dr. Laventhal.

Wilk found Allen’s “lack of judgment” to be an issue and said, “His trial strategy has been to separate his children from their brothers and sisters; to turn the children against their mother; to divide adopted children from biological children.”

The Justice also demanded “a careful monitoring of his future contact with the children.”

And while both Dr. Coates and Dr. Schultz were instrumental in testifying about the visitation rights, contending Allen wasn’t a threat, Justice Wilk stated in the custody ruling:

“Both Dr. Coates and Dr. Schultz expressed their opinions that Mr. Allen did not sexually abuse Dylan. Neither Dr. Coates nor Dr. Schultz has expertise in the field of child sexual abuse. I believe that the opinions of Dr. Coates and Dr. Schultz may have been colored by their loyalty to Mr. Allen.”

The he-said-she-said is making headlines — 21 years later — after Dylan published an open letter in the New York Times in which she stated Allen abused her.

But as Radar previously reported, 78-year-old Allen has denied the accusations made in the bombshell piece, calling them “untrue and disgraceful” through his rep.

A source said: “The allegations against Allen came from biased and unreliable sources, including Dylan, who this report described as a ‘dreamy child who ‘had difficulty distinguishing fantasy from reality’ and Farrow and her friends and family, who harbored a great deal of animosity towards Allen.

“The doctors concluded that Mia Farrow clearly influenced Dylan’s statements.

“Dylan retracted her abuse allegations and told the investigators inconsistent stories over the course of the multi-day examination.”

In a comment Wednesday, Dylan insisted her mother Mia “never planted false memories in my brain. My memories are mine. I remember them. She was distraught when I told her.

“When I came forward with my story she was hoping against hope that I had made it up. In one of the most heartbreaking conversations I have ever had, she sat me down and asked me if I was telling the truth. She said that Dad said he didn’t do anything. And I said, ‘He’s lying.’”

Robin Farrow is Frank Sinatra's son isn't he? I mean look at the kid!

Boy did the Grammys open a can of worms .. I bet woody wishes they never mentioned him so he could go back to quietly fondling his kids

At the time experts did conclude the child had been coached. OTOH should we discount a person's memory? Also, Woody Allen's countering with Farrow's relationship with Sinatra is false; Sinatra was not in a relationship with her mother. All of these people are troubled.

Woody, its too little too late
too much
he said
she said

Hey Woody, Sinatra wasn't Mia's father and there were no children involved. Tell the truth. You're the nightmare that little girl grew up with. Shame on you.

He married his adopted daughter. Case closed.

Soon YI betrayed the only person who gave a crap about her and was an adult when she decided to shack up with her step father. I bet she had a hand in convincing Mia it wasn't her fault to relieve herself of the guilt and shame of what she did. She probably got Mia's thinking on that path. I think Mia truly believes Woody is a perv who molested those kids. She had too many to keep track of and married a guy who wasn't equipped to handle it. He should have left all of those kids alone.
