Dylan Farrow's Brother Moses Defends Their Dad Woody Allen: He Did Not Molest My Sister

Dylan Farrow's Brother Moses Defends Their Dad Woody Allen: He Did Not Molest My Sister

Moses Farrow, the son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, has now spoken out that he believes the sexual molestation allegations against his father are false.

“My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister,” Moses, 36, said to People. “And I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi.”

“Of course Woody did not molest my sister,” Moses said. “She loved him and looked forward to seeing him when he would visit. She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him. The day in question, there were six or seven of us in the house. We were all in public rooms and no one, not my father or sister, was off in any private spaces. My mother was conveniently out shopping. I don’t know if my sister really believes she was molested or is trying to please her mother. Pleasing my mother was very powerful motivation because to be on her wrong side was horrible.”

Moses himself made some accusations in the interview with the magazine. “From an early age, my mother demanded obedience and I was often hit as a child,” he said. “She went into unbridled rages if we angered her, which was intimidating at the very least and often horrifying, leaving us not knowing what she would do.”

In case you missed it, read Dylan‘s full letter detailing her allegations.

FYI: Moses has been estranged from his adoptive mother for many years.

    oh moma mia…here is the whole article. He says mia hit them too.,,20783306,00.html

  • mel

    He was almost 60 and fell in love and took nude photos of a child. He has always weirded me out. So regardless if it’s true… I think he’s a major creep.

  • Leenah

    I don’t know what to believe..

  • Janey

    hmm a story we would never know from both part…… it harsh to say that he kind of looks like a pedophile??

  • who knows anymore

    I don’t know if its true about Dylan and we will never know.
    However, Moses is not the only child that is estranged from her (at least from what I read)
    She has many issues so I don’t know if she DID coach Dylan but I can believe its possible.
    It was not this perfect happy mix of kids. I also heard stories of the adopted ones not being treated as nice as the natural ones.
    What a big drama all the way around.
    Dylan seems sincere but kind of messed up and immature for her age so it can go either way.( I did a search on her a while ago when I first read the story and she had a livejournal or something) I think I believe Moses as far as the atmosphere of the home.

  • Sophia

    I believe Dylan too, when you grow up you start realizing that your parents aren’t always rights. And that’s when the thruth comes out….

  • whodunit

    Drama. Awful situation for all. No one wins. Its just sad.

  • Sophia

    I meant Moses!!

  • Paula

    How brave of Woody to have his son speak for him. I bet he supports his son financially.
    I still believe Dylan. Her story has enough details. Of course nobody could have seen Woody molesting Dylan. That’s the way pedophiles work. They know when to attack, and they would never admit to their sins. Look at Jerry Sandusky.

  • monica

    No he doesn’t support Moses. He is doing very well on his own.

    Ronan and Mia started this on twitter at the golden globes and this is turning out to backfire on them as far as pr goes. They both look like idiots- regardless if woody does too.
    I don’t think Dylan would have brought this up again now if Ronan and Mia wouldn’t have started this silliness.

    Ronan might be book smart but he is a fool. He might believe his sister but he was too young to know so his opinion is just that.

    And he is the son of woody but since he hates him he and his mother wanted the pr out there to suggest he was Frank’s son to distance him from woody and get him attention for his new show. Sounds better then Woody Allen’s son has a new show.
    They had no regard for Frank’s wife who is still alive when they played that game.

    Dylan might be telling the truth who knows but all of these people are clowns!!!

  • Boy!

    That Golden Globe award brought out all of the crazies in Woody Allen’s life out of the woodwork! I’ve only seen one of his movies and i haven’t never been interested in his life or career. Therefore I don’t care one way or the other but this matter should be handled in court, not on the internet! It’s getting ridiculous.

  • Jessica

    Sorry, but it’s horribly traumatic for someone to come forward with these allegations. And it’s not the first time Dylan has claimed this. She went to the police with this years ago and they dismissed it on a technicality (you know celebrity, we’re not going to punish him). I”m glad she came forward!

  • Jogo

    Oh no this doesn’t fit the narrative of Mia being the perfect mother. How will her supporters bash her son now? lool!!

  • lol

    Mia Farrow and Woody Allen are both psychos.
    All their children are damaged beyond repair and I think one of them even committed suicide

  • luke

    Men who do it with little girls,usually don’t like little boys. She went to the police years ago . They were too Starstuck to do anything.

  • Harriett

    I believe Dylan too. This is not about Mia Farrow being a good mother or not. No mother is “perfect”. Was your mother perfect?
    This is about a child that was molested by her father. Dylan claimed she was molested many years ago, but she was only 7. It was the word of a 7 year old girl against Woody Allen. She is a grown woman now and she’s speaking again because nobody listened to her before.

  • M

    Wow, yeah, so Mia being a horrible mother is now evidence that Allen “did not do it”?

  • Kelly

    Moses is estranged from all his siblings not just Mia.
    I was also molested unbeknownst to my five siblings who were at home when it occured.Sometimes they were asleep,other times my stepdad had them watching cartoons or Disney videos .I read In Vanity Fair is not in contact with any of his family.

  • Roberta

    I agree there’s much more to this story than we know, but to me, Dylan is telling the truth.

    While we can argue that the Golden Globes sparked this allegations, that doesn’t mean they are false. Dylan gave a detailled testemony to what happened to her, and I don’t think she would be stupid enough to come forward with this story if it wasn’t true. She is accusing someone of a hideous crime, pedophilia, and she could be sued for that.

    I never liked Woody Allen, and I think his actions speak for themselves. The fact that he married Soon yi when she was of age, doesn’t change the fact he carried an inappropriate relationship with her when she was underage. There are pictures to prove it.

    I can say here, I will never watched one of his movies ever agan, but that’s not hard to do, since I’m not a big fan of his movies anyway. Saw vicky christina barcelona, but didn’t know it was one of his movie.

  • @19

    not really. That is because when he distanced himself from Mia it caused a rift with those that side with Mia.

    Notice there are only a few kids that Mia post about on twitter out of the 14 or so!
    Moses is not the only one that has an issue with Mia. They are more divided then you think.

  • Roberta

    @Roberta: just to add to my post above:

    The sad thing is that they, Woody and his lawers, and now Moses, are dragging Mia into this. This isn’t about Mia being the greatest mother on earth, this is about a 7 year old girl who was allegedly molested by her own father. Stop blaming the victim just because the man accused is held up in a pedestal by hollywood.

  • Jogo

    The reason Mia is dragged into it is because not only did her and Dylan tweet about this and put herself in it but also it has been stated by their side since 1992 that Mia was a part of coaching Dylan so of course she is a part of it now. It shows the character of Mia which her supporters don’t like because it paints a very unflattering picture.
    She is just like Woody and her daughter Soon Yi in that she had a relationship with a man 30 years older and Mia also broke up another marriage with Pevin.
    Dylan might be telling the truth but it is important to know the whole truth in this situation.
    I don’t think people should blame the victim but it’s also not wise to not question any situation since there are also people who get falsely accused.

    Woody is a pervert and is creepy but I have no idea if he really abused Dylan and that is mainly because Mia herself has muddied the water too much.

  • vrnc

    @#15 – Two of Mia’s daughters died from illnesses; neither committed suicide.

  • Luna

    This is not about Mia! Woody Allen is trying to throw mud at her and discredit her, first through his lawyers and now using his son. He is trying to distract us from the fact that one of his daughters is claiming that he raped her as a child.

  • 222

    In a way this is about Mia, since there are claims that Mia planted the idea in Dylan’s head that Woody Allen abused her.

  • Gerd

    I Don’t believe Dylan. She’s a LIAR. Mia Farrow made her say these things because she’s is another crazy Hollywood Mother. Why don’t that idiot Ronan and Mia address the fact that Mias brother is serving prison for child molestation (sickness rans in the blood of Mias family)……..try tweeting about that suckers. It was wrong of Woody to fall in love with his girlfriend’s daughter…or was it, since they are still together. So what if there’s is a big age gap between the two of them, Mia was 30 years younger than Franke boy when they got married, and when she cheated in Woody first an became preggers with Ronan….why don’t they tweet about that. It makes no sense for Woody to have molested the child, at the time of the supposed incident should have taken place….it just doesn’t fit.

  • Dare to be Honest

    The sad thing about Woody (people usually do live up to their names) is he never grew up and dumped all the parenting on Mia. If he hadn’t of blurred it with the poor me scenario (so typical of Jews), they would of together have addressed the awful mental issues that adopting after the age of 1 yr. does. He just intuitively chimed in with the “victims” leaving Mia placed into the persecutor role. Hi Hitler!

  • Jess

    As Sherlock Holmes says, only lies have detail, and Dylan’s letter sure had a lot of detail.

  • Freddie

    Dylan is a grown woman capable of discerning fantasy from reality. She said Woody Allen molested her and I believe her. Woody Allen took pictures of her naked daughter (adopted, stepdaughter, borrowed, I don’t care!) and then married her. I applaud Dylan for defending her truth. Sandusky wasn’t investigated enough because he was untouchable and powerful and because of that he molested many more boys. It’s time we start listening to victims of abuse, instead of making excuses to defend the rich and powerful pedophiles!

  • mybe

    @#28 – If you think you’re being cute by bringing up “Jews” and “Hitler” think again.

  • Not Swayed

    @luke: well said, that’s VERY true and I’m surprised more people haven’t been saying this.

  • Maddie


    Moses is not estranged from Soon-yi.

    Dylan went to the police years ago? Link, please. When she was 7, her mother manufactured this story. Woody Allen is a sleaze – I’m not a fan of his personal life – but he is not a pedophile.

    Blind support of Dylan is not helping this situation. Yes, we all know people who were abused and it’s AWFUL. Some of us, however, also know someone who was made to believe they were abused and they weren’t. The witch hunt of the 90s destroyed families. Yes, Dylan believes this happened and I feel for her and want to support her. That doesn’t mean I’ll believe a lie, however. I’m sorry.

  • Maddie


    They’re dragging Mia into this??????? Mia orchestrated this entire thing!

  • Bianca

    This is one f***ed up family

  • Maddie


    Plenty of grown men and women are still under their paretnts’ thumbs. Dylan is afraid not to do her mother’s bidding. Yes, I know she believes this story of assault that she’s been told over and over – by someone who wasn’t present – but that doesn’t make it true.

    Everyone, please Google “In the Attic With Daddy,” composed by Dory Previn. Dory was married to Andre Previn before Mia had an affair with him. Dory became severely depressed and even had to have electric shock therapy. The album was in Mia’s house and the lyrics of this song were deemed very important when the initial allegations were made. Mia used them as the basis for her made-up story.

    Mia supports Roman Polanski. Her own brother is in jail for pedophilia. There are MANY inconsistencies regarding her actions and statements.

    I feel terrible for Dylan. All of this is so unfair to her. Ronan is a mama’s boy doing whatever Mia tells him to.

  • Izz

    I believe Dylan.

    Here’s an interview Woody made before he met Mia about him having sex with 12 year old’s:,,20066950,00.html

    Just because Moses has issues with Mia doesn’t mean the abuse didn’t happen.

  • Roberta

    @Maddie: What did Mia said publicly about the abuse? Ronan tweeted it, not Mia. What Mia tweeted when the tributewas on, was that she was swiching the channels to watch girls. Nothing wrong with that. I swiched the channels when the tribute was on, not because I think he did it or not, but because I have never liked his movies and still don’t.

  • Dare to be Honest

    @mybe: Not cute just frankly disgusted. There is so much dysfunction in this world today you need to put the word fun in capital letters to keep it light. You know if you don’t laugh you cry. I’ve learned to apply these principles. What good does it do to drag myself down by such disgust. I have a responsibility to myself and to those around me. Sorry you didn’t see it:)

  • kami

    how much is woody paying moses to say this?

  • @40

    The same amount Mia is paying Dylan

  • mybe

    @#39 – I just don’t think there’s anything fun or funny about bringing up the subject of Jews and Hitler in the same paragraph. There are plenty of things in life that are fun and funny, but the subject of Jews and Hitler is not one of them.

  • mybe

  • mybe

    Sorry for the double post.

  • Mindrew


    You’re right. It’s not. It’s more about RONAN than anyone else. He started this latest volley. He could have used any one of a million other barbs he’s thrown Woody’s way in his initial tweet. He decided to drag his sister into the mix.

    Do we know FOR SURE that Dylan WANTED to rehash this publicly now? Do we? She had her hand forced in this.

    Ronan has an agenda right now… his new show starts in a week and a half. He needs to grab an audience now. If Dylan herself had written that essay BEFORE the GGs (they had WEEKS to say something) and had it published without her brother pressing the issue, I’d be less skeptical bout this whole thing now. They (meaning Ronan and Mia) also knew full well that Woody would never show or SAY ANYTHING… and why did Mia give permission to the GG to allow a clip from the Purple Rose of Cairo to be seen in the tribute montage if she wants nothing to do with Woody? It all has to do with Mia and her boy at this point. I personally find it completely distasteful that she’s making her daughter relive it all publicly.


    No.1; Dittos. Crack pot liberals like Mia are actually quite dangerous…


    No.21; Dittos. Obviously, the legendary crazy [nun] church lady figure, Mia, has been married to the Devil and his worldwide church for quite some years now.


    No.4; You might start with the fact that Moses looks a lot like the owner and operator of this gossip web site. Which is the only one of it’s kind that really interests me right now.

    What I know is that Woody Allen makes very misogynistic movies…
