Dylan Farrow writes open letter about alleged child sex abuse by Woody Allen

Woody Allen’s adopted daughter has written for the first time about her claims that she was molested by the filmmaker as a child – allegations that surfaced more than 20 years ago.

Dylan Farrow, who contacted a New York Times columnist, says Allen sexually assaulted her when she was seven.

His recent Oscar nomination felt like a “personal rebuke”, she adds, and finally prompted her to break her silence.

The paper reports that she was diagnosed last year with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Woody Allen, who recently received a Golden Globe lifetime achievement award, has always denied the allegations and was never prosecuted.

A panel of psychiatrists sided with him; a judge ruled in favour of Farrow and her mother in a custody battle.

Dylan Farrow now lives in Florida under a different name.
