New York Times, Woody Allen responds to the claims that his daughter Dylan Farrow made. Namely that Woody Allen abused her when she was seven. Here is the thing. You can read the letter as much as you want and he brings up lots of good points and has a lot of supporting evidence on his side. The problem that Woody Allen will always have is that he ended up marrying one of his daughters. Woody can talk about results from Yale and independent experts and whatever else he wants but the bottom line is this. He lost custody and visitation rights and he married his daughter. I don't care if Soon Yi is his adopted daughter or was just a kid living there when he moved in. He treated her like a daughter. He said she was his daughter and at some point he married her. Are you telling me he didn't maybe want that same kind of relationship with Dylan first and later Soon Yi gave it to him. So, he can say what he wants and write what he wants, but he will never convince me he didn't sexually abuse his daughter.
