The Farrow-Allen family drama deepens… As the sides stack up in the he said, she said battle between Dylan Farrow and Woody Allen, the famed director has gained an unlikely ally: Dylan's adopted brother Moses.

While Dylan claims Allen molested her as a child, Moses says their mom, Mia Farrow, coached Dylan to say she was assaulted and that Mia herself beat them.

"Of course Woody did not molest my sister," Moses told People. "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… 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."

"My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister," he explained. "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."

"From an early age, my mother demanded obedience and I was often hit as a child," he continued. "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."

But Dylan is not having it. "This is such a betrayal to me and my whole family," she told People. "My memories are the truth and they are mine and I will live with that for the rest of my life."

"My mother never coached me. She never planted false memories in my brain. My memories are mine. I remember them. She was distraught when I told her. When I came forward with my story, she was hoping against hope that I had made it up. In one of the most heartbreaking conversations I have ever had, she sat me down and asked me if I was telling the truth. She said that Dad said he didn’t do anything and I said, 'He's lying.'"

"I will not see my family dragged down like this," she added. "My brother is dead to me. My mother is so brave and so courageous and taught me what it means to be strong and brave and tell the truth even in the face of these monstrous lies."
