Lark Previn Dies On Christmas Day

Lark Previn, the Vietnamese-born daughter of Mia Farrow and musician Andre Previn, died on Christmas Day, according to NYDN.

The medical examiner said that the 35-year-old mother-of-two had been ailing for a decade. A cause of death was not released.

Her two daughters, Sara, 13, and Christine, 12, sat in the front row at her wake last night at a Brooklyn funeral home.

Lark was one of the adopted children of Mia and Andre that included Soon-Yi Previn, who would eventually marry Woody Allen. Lark‘s live-in boyfriend, Robert Garcia, declined comment.

Our deepest condolences to Lark‘s family and friends. RIP.

    (old news story I found – must have died from AIDS)

    Mia Farrow’s daughter admitted to hospital with AIDS-related illness

    The Daily Mail newspaper reported today that Lark Previn, the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and her second husband Andre Previn- has been admitted to hospital with an AIDS-related illness. Ms. Previn was diagnosed as HIV positive in 1996. Her husband Chris MacKinzie believes she became infected before her children were born as the result of a dirty needle used when the couple were being tattooed. Their two children have also been diagnosed as being HIV positive.

    This is so sad. I heard she was infected by a dirty tattoo needle in the early ’90′s. This was before the tattoo industry enforced health requirements and hygiene standards. Very tragic. I feel sorry for those two girls. Losing a mother at that age is brutal.

    I wonder if the pedophile Woody Allen will allow his “wife” to attend the funeral? Lark was adopted around the same time as Soon-Yi. However I read that they girls were estranged. The children sided with Mia when their father married their sister.

    Lark was a very sweet kid (knew her from school). I was lucky to get to know her again as an adult. I am sick to my stomach that I haven’t seen her in the last 3 years. May she rest in peace. Her daughters Christina and Sarah are in my prayers.

    Mia’s adopted daughter, Tam Farrow, died March 2000 due to an apparent heart ailment. She was 19

    Lark Song was as lovely as her name.
    She died prematurely and tragically leaving a great void.
    Lark was a wonderful mother, a kind soul, and a dear friend. She kept to herself and lived a modest life asking for little. She had dignity, strength, and character and should be remembered for those traits.

    Her family and friends will miss her presence immeasurably. May she finally rest in peace and be remembered for the generous, loving person she was.

    ***************************************
    Larks former husband – Chris Mckinzie, is a drug abuser, a felon, and an unethical cretin who sold the first HIV story to the media for profit…and probably this one as well. If she was infected with anything it came from that selfish parasite.
    She has passed and speculation as to why only serves to tarnish the memory of Lark.

    A Reply to comment #16. Re: Former Husband. You would find that hard to believe because according to medical records. Chris McKinzie has been tested 6 times in the last 10 years and every test has been negative. He has remarried and has 3 children and a wife which are all healthy….. Explain that?? Now it would be one of 2 things. If she did have it, she was adopted with it and never told, or she had it and her mother knew and never said nothing … which would have been the tragedy here. Imagine someone who looks so good in the spotlight, on paper and on T.V. but to hold a secret like that was very selfish and horrible thing to do. That is a selfish parasite.

    TRUTH BE TOLD Says:

    Reply to # 20. I find it very interesting that I can back up my claims with evidence and a medical paper trail and You can’t. According to present day medical files his present wife was on “NO” medication during or after all pregnancy’s. His medical file also shows all H.I.V testing was & is negative. So if wife, him, and children are H.I.V negative. Please show me how his ex-wife was infected by him. As science and education shows.This is not possible! You must be uneducated, resentful, jealous, and pretty much have no life or loved ones of your own. I can see you must need some serious pshyciatric help and have hidden issues, and a private agenda to slander his name. Let me guess? Do you live in Florida?, Have 10 kids?, and No husband of your own ? Must be!

    Since Lark has passed, is Chris taking in his two daughters?
