Dylan and Ronan Farrow Are Pissed About Explosive Soon-Yi Interview For NY Magazine
View this post on Instagram
As controversies tumbled around her, the daughter of Mia Farrow and wife of Woody Allen stayed silent for decades. More than a quarter-century after the public learned of the affair that “broke every taboo,” in the words of child psychiatrist Paulina Kernberg, 47-year-old Soon-Yi is ending her silence: “What’s happened to Woody is so upsetting, so unjust. [Mia] has taken advantage of the #MeToo movement and paraded Dylan as a victim. And a whole new generation is hearing about it when they shouldn’t.” Link in bio. 📸@danwintersphoto
An explosive interview was published in New York magazine with Woody Allen’s wife Soon-Yi Previn, who also happened to be Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter and Woody’s prior step-daughter — as well as Dylan and Ronan’s adopted sister at one point.
In a new interview with the mag, Soon-Yi made serious accusation against Mia, citing physical and emotional abuse. Read the full story at Vulture!
Ronan was quick to make a statement: “I owe everything I am to Mia Farrow. She is a devoted mom who went through hell for her family all while creating a loving home for us. But that has never stopped Woody Allen and his allies from planting stories that attack and vilify my mother to deflect from my sister’s credible allegation of abuse.”
Dylan was reached out by the writer to fact-check claims made by Soon-Yi, but never did an official interview. Dylan later said that, “The author has written about her friendship and infatuation with Woody Allen. The idea of letting a friend of an alleged predator write a one-sided piece attacking the credibility of his victim is disgusting.”
She added, “[Daphne] suggested that my mother bribed me to lie with a doll that was not manufactured until years later. The story still includes bizarre fabrications about my mother while failing to mention that a prosecutor found probable cause of abuse by Woody Allen and that he was in therapy for his unhealthy fixation on my body.”
“As a journalist, I’m shocked by the lack of care for the facts, the refusal to include eyewitness testimony that would contradict falsehoods in this piece, and the failure to include my sister’s complete responses,” Ronan said. “Survivors of abuse deserve better.”
