Mia Farrow has accused her ex-boyfriend Woody Allen of “weaponizing” her adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn against her after their explosive breakup.
In the finale of HBO’s four-part documentary series “Allen v. Farrow,” the 76-year-old actress claimed that Allen tried to use his now-wife Previn and their adopted son, Moses, against him, People reported.
“He has weaponized two of my sons who have turned against me,” he said.
Farrow spoke about finding out that the filmmaker was having an affair with Previn, then a teenager, and allegations that he sexually assaulted his daughter Dylan in the family’s attic when she was 7 years old in 1992.
Moses, who is Farrow’s oldest adopted son, sided with Allen and accused her of being an abusive mother in a lengthy trial in 2018.
“They are all people that I loved with all my heart. They are all people I would have given my life for, ”Farrow said in the documentary series.
Farrow said he was hopeful that Previn would change his mind and want to repair their relationship.
“I love Soon-Yi. It took me six years to throw away the Christmas stocking that I knitted for him thinking he would come back, but he didn’t, ”he said.
Farrow said her relationship with Allen kept her from relying on men.
“I never brought anyone home because I didn’t want to risk anyone falling in love with one of my beautiful children or grandchildren,” Farrow said.
“If I couldn’t trust Woody after 12 years, I would never take another risk with anyone else. I don’t trust myself to know. How would you know I do not know. So I never brought them home. “
Allen, who has vehemently denied sexually abusing Dylan, criticized the HBO series as “ax work” that was “riddled with falsehoods.”
After the end of Sunday, social media users reacted to the show’s revelations, including claims by the former couple’s son, journalist Ronan Farrow, that Allen offered him financial assistance to speak out against his mother.
Ronan revealing that Woody only offered financial support for education if he spoke out against his mother and sister is not something a loving father does. It’s what an abuser does ” wrote a Twitter user.
Other additional“I have to confess that I was skeptical of the accusations against Woody Allen for having abused his daughter. My skepticism arose mainly from the Moses Farrow essay. However, my mind has changed after watching HBO’s Allen v Farrow. “
