Soon-Yi Breaks Silence On Life With Woody Allen

It was written by essayist and novelist Daphne Merkin, who confessed to being a long-time friend of Allen's, and according to Ronan Farrow lacks basic facts while containing a number of falsehoods.

In this May 15, 2010 file photo, filmmaker Woody Allen, right, and Soon-Yi Previn arrive for the premiere of "Another Year", at the 63rd global film festival in Cannes, southern France.

Earlier this evening, Vulture posted Daphne Merkin's NY magazine profile of Soon-Yi Previn, the wife of Woody Allen and adopted daughter of Mia Farrow.

"I was never interested in writing a Mommie Dearest, getting even with Mia - none of that", Previn said. "But what's happened to Woody is so upsetting, so unjust", Previn stated.

Earlier this year, Dylan Farrow spoke out in an interview and in an open letter for The New York Times detailing the assault she endured at the hands of Allen and contextualizing the situation in the Me Too Movement. "And a whole new generation is hearing about it when they shouldn't". She claims her parents both had serious tempers and played favorites amongst the children.

"I am a pariah", Allen said.

"People think that I was Soon-Yi's father, that I raped and married my underaged, retarded daughter", he said, echoing a statement made by Soon-Yi in 1992 where she said, "I'm not a retarded little underage flower who was raped, molested, and spoiled by some evil stepfather - not by a long shot". It is Soon-Yi's story, told from her point of view to a sympathetic writer- a friend and admirer of Allen. Said Farrow, "This only serves to revictimize me. Because she thought - or she read it, God knows where she came up with the notion - that blood going to my head would make me smarter or something".


In stark contrast to the story presented by Previn, Dylan released a statement in response to the Vulture profile, calling the allegations that she was manipulated by her mother "offensive" and said that she "grew up in a wonderful home". She says that from the moment she met Mia at the orphanage, "She didn't ring true or honest".

"My mother never coached me, but she did stand by me, even when Woody Allen unleashed hell on her via lawyers and publicists and allies like the author of this piece". Previn told the magazine that her mother slapped her, "called everyone" and threw her out of the apartment they had shared. None of us ever witnessed anything other than compassionate treatment in our home, which is why the courts granted sole custody to our mother of all her children. If I didn't get them right, sometimes she'd throw them at me or down on the floor. "I think he is, but I wouldn't bet my life on it". Her adopted father is conductor André Previn, who was married to Farrow in the 1970s.

In a rare and controversial interview published Sunday in NY magazine Vulture, Previn opens up about her relationship with Allen - who was Farrow's partner for a significant period of time while Previn was growing up - and says that her mother "was never kind to me, never civil". "Granted, he looks a lot like Frank with the blue eyes and facial features, but if so what does this say?" he wrote in a 2014 New York Times op-ed.

Just hours after the profile's publication, Dylan posted a strong statement via Twitter defending her mother and blasting the magazine for pushing falsehoods.

Previn criticised her adoptive mother's parenting skills, describing her as not "maternal from the get-go" and a "total breakdown of your spirit". Having a friend of Allen's write the piece is journalistically and morally wrong.

In the house the day the alleged molestation took place was Moses Farrow, the adopted son of Allen and Mia.
