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.
