Dylan Farrow denies she made up abuse claims
Dylan Farrow is heartbroken that her brother Moses Farrow is taking Woody Allen's side.
Dylan Farrow is struggling to understand why her brother Moses Farrow is repeating what she says are blatant lies about the allegations she was sexually abused by their father, Woody Allen.
Moses gave an interview to People in response to Dylan's open letter to The New York Times detailing the abuse. In the interview, Moses said their mother, Mia Farrow, planted false memories in Dylan as a means of payback for Allen "stealing" her daughter Soon-Yi Previn as his lover and eventual wife.
In response to Moses' interview, Dylan tearfully told People, "It took all of my strength and all of my emotional fortitude to do what I did this week in the hope that it would put the truth out there. That is my only ammunition. I don't have money or publicists or limos or fancy apartments in Manhattan. All I have is the truth and that is all I put out there."
"People are saying that I am not actually remembering what I remember. People are saying that my 'evil mother' brainwashed me because they refuse to believe that my sick, evil father would ever molest me, because we live in this society where victim blaming and inexcusable behavior — this taboo against shaming the famous at the expense of their victims — is accepted and excused."
"My brother has broken my heart," she continued. "Moses divorced himself from the family a long time ago. I always missed him. I loved him and I kept him in my thoughts. These lies — this betrayal — is unfathomable to me coming from a brother I loved and cherished and grew up with."
"He has betrayed me in the cruelest way imaginable, and betrayed my family and my mother who has loved him since day one. His betrayal is the lowest form of evil that I could ever imagine."
Moses' views of the past aside, Dylan is sticking to her story.
"My memories are true. What happened to me as a little girl... is my cross to bear. But I will not see my family dragged down like this. I can't stay silent when my family needs me."
