A spokesperson for the 85-year-old filmmaker and his 50-year-old wife released a statement slamming the new docu-series after the premiere aired on Sunday (February 21), in which his ex Mia Farrow
“These documentarians had no interest in the truth,” Woody and Soon-Yi‘s spokesperson shared in a statement to Deadline. “Instead, they spent years surreptitiously collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers to put together a hatchet job riddled with falsehoods. Woody and Soon-Yi were approached less than two months ago and given only a matter of days ‘to respond.’ Of course, they declined to do so.”
“As has been known for decades, these allegations are categorically false,” the statement continued. “Multiple agencies investigated them at the time and found that, whatever Dylan Farrow may have been led to believe, absolutely no abuse had ever taken place. It is sadly unsurprising that the network to air this is HBO – which has a standing production deal and business relationship with Ronan Farrow. While this shoddy hit piece may gain attention, it does not change the facts.”
Woody has adamantly denied allegations that he sexually abused Dylan, which were first revealed in 1992 after he split from Mia. He was never charged, but a Connecticut prosecutor did say there was probable cause for a criminal case.
Allen v Farrow continues next Sunday, February 28 on HBO.
