Moses Farrow Defends Father Woody Allen & Says Mother Mia Farrow Was Abusive

Moses Farrow Defends Father Woody Allen & Says Mother Mia Farrow Was Abusive

Woody Allen and Mia Farrow‘s son, Moses, is speaking out against his mother in a new blog post published on Wednesday (May 23).

The 40-year-old photographer and family therapist defended Woody against claims of sexual abuse in a post called “A Son Speaks Out.”

Among his claims, Moses says he “witnessed siblings, some blind or physically disabled, dragged down a flight of stairs to be thrown into a bedroom or a closet, then having the door locked from the outside.”

“When Soon-Yi was young, Mia once threw a large porcelain centerpiece at her head. Luckily it missed, but the shattered pieces hit her legs. Years later, Mia beat her with a telephone receiver,” he writes.

Moses was adopted from South Korea by Mia, and then co-adopted by Woody in 1991.

“I’m a very private person and not at all interested in public attention. But, given the incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father, Woody Allen, I feel that I can no longer stay silent as he continues to be condemned for a crime he did not commit,” he wrote.

“To my mother: One thing you always said you appreciated about me was my ability to listen. I listened to you for years and held your truth above all others. You once said to me, ‘It’s not healthy to hold onto anger.’ Yet here we are, 26 years later. I’m guessing your next step will be to launch a campaign to discredit me for speaking out. I know it comes with the territory. And it’s a burden I am willing to bear.”

    A 13 year old wouldn’t randomly be on the lookout for inappropriate behavior. No one is with anyone the whole day, they go into different rooms, focus on different things, etc. You make it sound like a 13 is a security camera.

    Why don’t you just read what he wrote and turn your brain on for once?

  • wearing

    Yes, Honey, it’s called logic. Saying random quotes like “turn on your brain for once” doesn’t make you more literate in English.

  • Sirius

    Right, because a female child who claims abuse from the father must be right, and a male child who claims abuse from his mother must be wrong. Good job!

  • Sirius

    Umm, that’s actually called bias. Logic is evaluation that is independent of emotion based upon facts. If you don’t read his full account, you don’t have a logical perspective, you just have a biased opinion, which is fine if that’s what you prefer.

  • Jerri R

    I believe him. Mia Farrow is a deranged bully and a liar

  • wearing

    That’s not the definition of logic at all. ANYWAY, having knowledge of a 13 year old’s capabilities and the brain’s imperfect memory, no matter what age, is important when analyzing statements such as his. And before you try to twist my words again, FYI, a traumatized memory is more stable, hence PTSD. This is why you should study before logging into gossip sites.

  • Sirius

    You were the one who twisted words in the first place. The definition of logic is “reasoning conducted or assessed according to strict principles of validity”, i.e., an evaluation of facts independent of emotion. But hey, you seem like a real genius, so I’ll leave all of the expert opinions and semantics to you. I guess the fact that someone has a degree in psychotherapy doesn’t mean anything, either.

    My suggestion — perhaps you could use all of your superior brain power and enlighten everyone as to why 3 of Mia’s children are dead, and why the experts determined it was possible that Dylan was coached my her mother? You could also elaborate on Mia’s brother who is in prison for pedophilia, or the rest of her deranged family, and how she put another woman in a mental institution. Also, why you are at it, you could explain why a boy would make up all of these stories in such great detail about the extent of humiliation and beatings he suffered at the hands of his mother? Lastly, I am wondering about the lack of trains in the crawl space. Another false memory??

    One thing I did note is that Moses posted this on his own private website, plain as can be, and did not take out any ads in publications, or broadcast this to the world. This is between him, his mother, and her biological offspring, who seemed to think more highly of her than many of those she adopted. Wonder why that is?
