Woody Allen Ex-Teen Girlfriend Says Abuse Allegations Are a Publicity Stunt for Ronan Farrow Show

Stacey Nelkin was a high-schooler when she dated Allen

Stacey Nelkin, an actress who dated Woody Allen while he was middle-aged and she was still in high school, is continuing to defend the embattled director, saying sexual assault allegations are being unearthed to generate publicity for Ronan Farrow's new MSNBC program.

“I, myself, was a little bit suspicious about the timing of this, with the article in Vanity Fair and this letter coming out,” Nelkin said during an appearance this week on HuffPost Live. “It just seems like maybe a publicity ploy for Ronan’s new MSNBC TV show.”

Dylan Farrow accused the “Annie Hall” filmmaker of touching her inappropriately when she was seven years old in a blog post excerpted on the New York Times’ website. The ensuing outcry has dredged up memories of the bitter child custody fight between Allen and Mia Farrow, as well as claims he is a pedophile.

Nelkin said she doesn't think Dylan Farrow is lying, even though she questioned her motivation for breaking her silence.

“I do believe that Dylan believes that this actually happened to her, so she's clearly in a lot of pain and very troubled about it,” Nelkin said. “But I chose to speak out because I was very disturbed by this and I've known Woody for a really long time. Before, during this and after all of these accusations.”

“I do not believe that this happened and I do believe that she made this up,” she added.

Nelkin's comments echo those of Guardian columnist and media gadfly Michael Wolff, who argued in columns and on talk shows that the Farrow family is trying to profit from the sexual abuse charges. She has defended the director in an earlier appearance on CNN's “Piers Morgan Live.”

Nelkin's association with Allen involved a romance she had with the director when she was a 17-year old senior at New York’s Stuyvesant High School and he was 42. Their May-December (or earlier on the calendar, depending on your view) relationship is said to have partly inspired the one between Allen and Mariel Hemingway in 1979's “Manhattan.”

Nelkin noted that sexual mores were different in the 1970s when the two dated and said her mother was “totally cool” with the romance.

Allen also began dating his future wife Soon-Yi Previn, Mia Farrow's adopted daughter, when she was 19. Despite his unorthodox sexual history, Nelkin argued that Allen's attraction to younger women does not mean he is a pedophile.

“I think a lot of people, including a lot of my friends and some close family members are failing to make the distinction that a man who likes younger women is not necessarily a man who is going to molest a child,” Nelkin said. “That because he perhaps didn’t have boundaries and went after his girlfriend’s adopted daughter, which, believe me, I think was absolutely horrible … that does not mean he is a child molester.”

    Go, Stacey! We know WA is innocent.

    • Gloria

      Woody Allen is not innocent. He married his own stepdaughter and last time I checked that was illegal. Criminal. Woody Allen is a known criminal and Woody Allen gets to do whatever he wants to do including lying his head on a seven year old's lap and putting whatever wherever and inviting children into his bed just like you know who.

      This is the world that we live in. Polygamists do it. They love the young girls. They breed the young girls for marriage, just like Woody.

      There are perverts walking amongst us everyday. And those perverts stick together. They long for a world where their criminal intentions will no longer be spoken of as criminal.

      Woody Allen is the Pervert Poster child at age 78. Go Woody!!

      • hardyharhar1603

        umm… technically not his stepdaughter. his girlfriend's daughter. where did you get that idea Mia and Woody were married?

      • Carol

        Gloria, then you need to check again. Marrying a stepchild of legal age is NOT illegal. A stepchild is not a blood relation…..and she was 19 when they began dating, meaning of legal age. AND….technically, she wasn't his stepchild, because he was not legally married to her mother.
        All that said, I still think it's creepy.
        This is the first I've heard of the publicity stunt. Since this waiting for decades before finally making a public statement seemed very odd to me, the publicity stunt actually makes it make sense…..in a very weird and even creepier way. Really….you're so desperate for publicity that you'll go public with a DECADES old accusation. If she was molested by him, she should have made the public statements way-back-then, which as I understand it, SHE never did, Mom did, but she did not.
        Everything about Woody Allen has also been too odd for my tastes, never liked the 2 movies I saw and have no desire to see others even now.

        • robinkilgore

          Even though I happen to like Woody Allen's films and , over the decades, have found them entertaining, I find your ability to be rational about this issue commendable.

        • Pennylane22

          She was SEVEN YEARS OLD.. Um. was SHE supposed to Hold a Press Conference and YES her mom made the public statements, because AGAIN, DYLAN was a child. From Age 7-18 (ELEVEN YEARS, she was a minor) and Once more, NOT able to Hold Press Conferences.. SMH

          • robinkilgore

            Whether or not she was able to hold a “press conference” is not the point ! The POINT is that she made the allegations, they were investigated and found to be lacking in credibility. Now, she and those damaged individuals that she appeals to are engaged in “beating a dead horse”. How productive !

      • Damn-Deal-Done

        Soon-yi Previn is the daughter of Andre Previn and Mia Farrow. The world we live in is a world where people like you spread lies and come into comment threads to throw abuse at the people in the articles for no real purpose other than to feel better about the sad little lives of emptiness they live. Well done.

      • robinkilgore

        You have a sick and twisted mind, Gloria. Your post is full of inventions that have no credibility. For example, Soon-Yi Previn was NEVER Woody Allen's “stepdaughter”…she was adopted when Mia Farrow was married to Andre Previn many years before and was never related to Woody Allen in any way. legal or otherwise, until she married him in her mid-twenties.
        Clearly, YOU are not innocent…your mind is full of perverse thoughts and projections. See a therapist !

      • paul

        You have quite an imagination and you reach in all directions, trying to justify your assumptions. You write fiction in hopes of what ? If you spoke the words you wrote, in front of a judge, you'd spend 72 hours in a psychiatric hospital.
        Well spoken, fact filled, college educated, lawyers presented these outrageous accusations in 1992, in court and no charges were filed.
        Guess what ? Bringing it up now changes nothing.
        Mia Farrow is the octomom's role model. They both collect children to help them deal with their relationship problems. The only difference is Mia sleeps around and adopts most of her children.

        • robinkilgore

          Exactly !

  • kkkkkkk

    woody allen is a pedophile and rapist

    • Damn-Deal-Done

      Who did he rape? never even heard any allogations of rape ever in any article or victim. Do you know something the rest of the world don't know? I think you need to go to the nearest police station and report a rape ASAP because it is news to everyone involved with this story.

      • Angel

        What they call molestations is rape. She aledges he used his finger to penetrate her. That is called digital rape if your an adult. But for some reason if you're a child it is called molesting. The daily beast has a timeline of events that begins at 3 for therapy for Dylan, allen, and Mia. In therapy they discussed his possible grooming and attentions to this one child to the exclusion of all others. That included a pregnant Mia who at the time he thought was carrying his son. He admitted in therapy he did not like children but there was something special about Dylan.

        • robinkilgore

          Another attempt at smearing Mr. Allen with sensational claims, geared at creating rage and indignation…. If there was EVER a claim of “digital penetration” it could have been borne out and supported by the child's physical examination, but it WASN'T…because it NEVER happened !
          Oh yeah…and, of course, the “Daily Beast” was there to document the “timeline” that they created…yeah….RIGHT !

  • hank p

    Dylan Farrow has called attention to herself by dragging Cate Blanchett into her mudfight with Woody Allen. It was wrong of her to do that. I'm of the opinion that the molestation she alleges never happened, although she may well think it did. But even if it did happen, it in no way excuses her disgraceful attempt to sully the good names of those who had nothing to do with her family's dysfunction.

    One other thing: Unless I'm mistaken, Dylan alleges one episode of a “sexual assault” when she was seven. The fact that this single alleged event appears to have scarred her so deeply constitutes and indictment of her mother, Mia Farrow, who appears to have assiduously fanned the flames of hatred and perceived personal violation for more than two decades. Good grief.

    Dylan, life is too precious to allow it to be shaped by hatred, justified….or not. For your own well-being, get a grip and move on.

    • Gloria

      Spoken like a true abuser. Do you even listen to yourself? Did you know that men who prey on children tell those children, ‘this is our little secret’ and then they threaten the child to make sure the secret stays safe. This whole case broke because an eye witness observed the famed director lying his head on a seven year old's lap.

      Go read the Judge's order. It's a 34 page document you may not be able to discern through the legal ease, so let me help you out there, the Judge's order was against your hero WA or whatever they call him here.

      Now these people involved are all so mild mannered and whiny. This would not be a civilized discussion in my camp. Woody Allen should consider himself lucky or smart that he has surrounded himself with such mild mannered and ridiculously timid people.

      The judge's order also mentions the spread eagle pictures Mia Farrow found of Soon Li taken by Woody Allen. In the legal world, this is called evidence. Mia was holding the evidence and you think her reaction is harsh? Where I come from we call this ridiculously passive.

      • hardyharhar1603

        Gloria, your argument loses credence when you start name-calling, but obviously you're very passionate about the subject.

      • robinkilgore

        The “case” that was decided against Woody Allen was solely about CUSTODY and NOT about any “abuse”.
        The fact that Mr. Allen entered into a relationship with Soon-Yi Previn when she was 19 is not the big deal that you seem to want to make it. Fact: she was of legal age and was not related to him in any possible way, although I'm sure that the adulterous Mia Farrow was wounded by that relationship, it is no reason to vilify and demonize her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi, or Mr. Allen, although she has continued that crusade for decades by poisoning the minds of her children.
        Let's not forget that Mia Farrow destroyed the marriage of the much older Andre Previn by becoming pregnant by him and let's also remember that, while in a “relationship” with Mr. Allen, she carried on a clandestine sexual affair with her ex, Frank Sinatra, who also got her pregnant…and, that for years she not only tried to pass that bastard off as Woody Allen's baby but also collected child support for that illegitimate child from Woody Allen, along with child support for Dylan and Moses who were jointly adopted by Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, ‘People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones'.

        • Pennylane22

          Since when is a grown man, taking “spread-eagled” nude pics of his girlfriend's teenage daughter and then “dating” that same daughter, NO BIG DEAL? In what universe is that OKAY? You can have your opinion and take sides, but please do not pretend that Woody Allen's actions and history with YOUNG GIRLS was Okay and No Big Deal.

          • robinkilgore

            No one is saying that it is “OK” to take “spread-eagled” pictures of ANYONE at ANY age !
            And, that claim may very well be the projected fantasy of the person that posted that comment here. I have NEVER heard that to be a fact.
            What is a FACT, however, is that his “girlfriend”, Mia Farrow, was f**king around with Frank Sinatra and got pregnant by him AND LIED to Woody Allen about the paternity of that child to get decades of child support out of him. She's NOT exactly a paragon of virtue as to be worthy of the saintly stature that you and some other opinionated nincompoops seem to bestow upon her.

          • HelenNPN

            If you don't know by now that everyone, including Allen, admit and talk openly about the beaver shot photos he took of Soon-Yi, then you are really abysmally unaware of even the most basic facts in this matter. Even if you refuse to accept that, it is quite clear to everyone else.

          • robinkilgore

            Again you are drawing conclusions that have not been verified by anyone, let alone, Woody Allen.
            Although nude pictures were found by Mia Farrow in Woody Allen's residence and he admitted to the relationship with the , then, nearly 20 year old adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and Andre Previn, there is no record of who TOOK the nude pictures NOR is there any statement about them being “beaver shots” or “spread eagle shots”….not all “nude” shots are so distasteful, but I understand your wanting to exaggerate, once again, to try and win your point by sinking to such a base level that might incite further vilification of Mr. Allen.
            What IS quite “clear” is that you will embellish and exaggerate every claim you've made about something that you were neither there to witness nor have any personal knowledge about. Pathetic !

          • HelenNPN

            LOl you are just completely wrong. Instead of responding to me, look up the 60 minutes interview widely broadcast with Allen, or read or watch any bio of them done since 1990 and you will find out that indeed, they were pornographic beaver shots, legs widely spread, and Allen very much admits to taking them, there is no question whatsoever in regards to any of that information.

          • robinkilgore

            If, in fact, there were “beaver shots” of the nearly 20 year old Soon-Yi Previn, it is still not anything extraordinary, although it might be unsavory and distasteful in a public forum. To my knowledge the “nude” pictures, as they have actually been referenced, were never made public but were the private property of Woody Allen and the consensual legal-age Soon-Yi who later became his wife.

          • HelenNPN

            Actually, the photos are in a bank vault in the possession of Mia Farrow. That specific fact is discussed in a biography of Allen called “The Unruly LIfe of Woody Allen”. Funny you would be squeamish about calling them what they are in a public forum, because Woody insisted publicly that these obscene shots were just his way to help Soon-Yi break into modeling. That is also on record, not made up. That was his excuse for them. Funny, but what real modeling agency would ever take explicit shots like that as a modeling portfolio. Allen is an abuser and a liar.

          • robinkilgore

            Although it “may” be a “fact” that said photos are in Mia Farrow's possession and in a bank vault somewhere, I can find no support for your gleeful allegation that they were the kind of shots that you claim, nor can I find any reference directly from Mr. Allen that attests to the remarks that you attribute to him. What you may have “read” in someone's unauthorized biography of him is nothing more than hearsay. You claimed earlier that he had spoken openly about the photographs and their graphic nature in the 60 Minutes interview…that was an outright lie…I watched that interview after you referenced it and it is a scathing and exculpatory interview that amply supports his innocence and vindicated him in such a way as to make Mia Farrow look like a very psychotic and calculating monster.
            Btw, I'm not “squeamish” about the kind of photographs that they are but merely pointed out that such photographs cannot really be proven or disproven because they would never be likely to find themselves revealed in a public forum. Therefore, there is nothing that can be said conclusively about them, pro or con, since it's up to just how dirty one's own mind is. Apparently, yours is filthy.

          • HelenNPN

            What you are capable of “finding support of” is of no interest to anyone else in any way whatsoever, as it is less than zero.

          • robinkilgore

            I would agree that your allegations about the kind of nude photos that they are is unsupported by anything factual and, as such, the value of your proclamations are truly “less than zero”. Your “facts” exist in your mind and are not supported by any,(pardon the pun), hard evidence.
            I think that if you take the time to read the varying opinions of others that you would find that your comments are not greeted with full applause and support and that there is substantial interest in getting to the truth that lies beneath your many manufactured “facts” and citings of hearsay as ‘gospel'.
            Judging by the responses to your comments in relationship to my own, I would say that more people have been “interested” and supportive to my comments on this thread than they have been to yours.

          • Menolikeyu

            It says something about a man's character when he dates a 19 year old when he is that old. Especially when said 19 year old looked like she was 12.

          • robinkilgore

            Throughout history men have taken wives that are much younger and it's still a very common practice in many parts of the world today. It's a fact that girls mature faster than boys.
            I don't think it says that much about a man's “character” if he dates a younger woman, I think it says more about his libido or his possible desire for children with a younger healthier partner.
            Mia Farrow dated men in their 50's when she was even younger than her adopted daughter…in fact she married two of them…Frank Sinatra and Andre Previn, whose longtime marriage she destroyed.
            Don't forget, either, that in today's world we have well publicized women who date and marry men that are also much, much younger than them.

          • robinkilgore

            Btw…I went online and found the complete original 60 Minutes interview with Woody Allen from 1992 and , to be plain, you are a liar !
            There is NO reference to the photos other than Woody Allen's acknowledgement that there were “photos”. (there was a brief view of Soon-Yi lying in bed with the covers pulled all the way up and only her heard, arms, and shoulders exposed contained in a frightening “Valentine's Day” card that Mia sent him with stick pens stuck in each of the children and a knife stuck into her own heart).
            I recommend that any and all who have questions about this case actually WATCH that interview from 1992. It will, no doubt, give people an entirely new perspective about the parties involved !
            It's truly a ‘must watch’ !
            Just google Woody Allen's 1992 60 Minutes interview and see for yourself.
            The REAL “sicko” here is and always has been the very unstable Mia Farrow.

          • Menolikeyu

            Sick, sick, sick!!

          • Pennylane22

            Listen here “Woody in Robinkilgore's clothing”, you can twist and justify all you want (calling a 19yr old, ALMOST 20) and stressing that Soon-Yi is “the adopted daughter of Mia and Andre”, etc., None of that changes the fact that he slept with his girlfriends adopted daughter who he knew as a child for years while he dated the mom. And none of your rantings will convince ME that he did not do something inappropriate with Dylan. I BELIEVE DYLAN. That is all.

          • Angel

            It has not been approved or disproved that he is frank Sinatra's son. He looks a lot like the farrow family too so without a DNA test it would be hard to say either way. I would not want to claim him as a father either if I was Ronan. In the very least he crossed a line with soon yi he should have never crossed.

          • sammy

            You sound like one of Woody's PR shills, perfuming the blogs from the stench of Woody. And where exactly is the paternity test of Ronan Farrow? (I would think Ronan would be thrilled to not be the biological child anyway…) I guess Woody taking crotch shots of a child, at the time an underage child, and having a history of dating underage girls, in the case of the 17-yr-old parental permission is not a pervert???? NOT!!!. The devil is really in the details with Woody Allen…. Jeez…

          • robinkilgore

            You don't know the actual facts in this case at all, do you ?
            Soon-Yi Previn was nearly 20 when she began her relationship with Woody Allen…NOT a “child”. There is nothing to corroborate your claims of “crotch shots” but the gossip grapevine that you've found in the raving postings of those who wish to inflame and provoke emotions by making such libelous claims…even though they NEVER saw the pictures in question and they have always been described by professionals as being merely “nude” photos.
            The “devil”, as you say, is in the fake details that people like yourself are manufacturing. Shame on you !

          • Albertine Disparue

            Mia's father introduced her to Sinatra when she was 11 years old. At that time John Farrow (Mia's father) was sleeping with Sinatra's first wife Ava Gardner. So to sum it up: Sinatra married the daughter of his ex-wife's boyfriend.

          • Menolikeyu

            Woody is a pervert in my eyes. He always had that vibe. You know when people say, “I never would have thought!!” Well, with him, you totally would've thought!!

          • Pennylane22

            SO, because Mia Farrow is not Mother Teresa, then it was OK for him to molest a 7 year old? I see your reasoning now.

          • Albertine Disparue

            It proves that Mia Farrow is quite capable of telling lies and therefore, she is not credible.

          • keith

            Bitter much? Hag syndrome

          • Menolikeyu

            And what happened to you? Too many pretty young girls turn you down?

          • Angel

            Go to the news site called the daily beast and look up the story. It has a timeline of events that thus far has not been reported that mia sought counseling when Dylan was 3 for herself and woody as well to discuss his singling out one child to the exclusion of the others and that the therapist said it was possible grooming behavior. That woody admitted to the therapist his behavior was disturbing and he would no longer be alone with Dylan.

          • robinkilgore

            The very fact that you have chosen to take the “timeline” of the Daily Beast rag…written decades after the fact and full of exaggerations and embellishments that are intended to sensationalize and provoke is a testament to your shallow disregard for the conclusions that were drawn at the time by mental health and law enforcement officials. Nothing like beating a dead horse, huh ? You're just another twisted and deranged gossip-monger. Get a life !

          • Pennylane22

            Angel, I saw that and wow, just wow! I just hope that by coming forward, Dylan has received the support and can find some peace about this.

          • Albertine Disparue

            By coming forward Dylan just helped her mother's and biological brother's agenda. The question is: Is Dylan a victim or an accomplice?

          • keith

            Soon yi was likely 21 at the time.
            Woody and soon yi have been together for 20 yrs. You have no right to suggest there is something wrong with their relationship. He was NOT taking pic of dylan. That would have made him a pedophile. Girls are most attractive around 15 and by 30 the bloom is off the rose. This is basic biology.

          • Menolikeyu

            OH- so you are a pervert too. Yuck. The “bloom is off the rose.” Gross!!!

        • Cyclops

          I'm sorry, but the term is step-daughter; with the emphasis on daughter. You may not be related by blood, but marrying into a family means accepting them as your family, with the emphasis on family. The rest is just legal justification for incest.

          • robinkilgore

            Woody Allen was NEVER married to Mia Farrow and maintained a separate residence throughout the time he was seeing Mia Farrow. If you think that his marriage to Soon-Yi Previn, at 27, was “incest” then you're just plain ignorant about what “incest” is. Try looking it up in a dictionary, why don't you !

          • Albertine Disparue

            Woody was never married to Mia. How is Soon Yi his step-daughter?

          • Albertine Disparue

            Mia's father introduced her to Sinatra when she was 11 years old. At that time John Farrow (Mia's father) was sleeping with Sinatra's first wife Ava Gardner. So to sum it up: Sinatra married the daughter of his ex-wife's boyfriend or as you would call it (erroneously) his ex-wife's step-daughter.

        • Angel

          You are right they are both twisted. Mia took her 3 year old daughter allen and herself into therapy over possible grooming behaviors allen had towards Dylan. Allen and the therapist agreed lines were being blurred between him and Dylan. Why then allow him near her? I know I would not. I think Ronan does not want to claim woody as his father due to him marrying his sister. Adopted or not it is still his sister. Mia failed to realize it only takes minutes for a molester to get his hands on a child. I just wish they would at least clear one thing up and do a DNA test.

        • Jill Friedman

          Woody's sexual relationship with his all-but -legal stepdaughter Soon Yi devastated the family. She was his partner Mia's daughter and his children's sister. This incestuous behavior was part of the reason the judges decided on supervised visitation only. He could not be trusted with the children. This is a man who was secretly having sex with Mia's older daughter while arranging to adopt the younger one so he could have access to her. Literally tricking Mia into allowing the adoption. This is very disturbing behavior. And Mia's relationships with adult men are absolutely irrelvant to this discussion.

      • hank p

        Gloria, written like a true neanderthal…ignorant, bigoted, and illiterate. Go read the Judge's order. It's a 34 page document. Perhaps your lips will get tired after a page or two, but if you have somebody read it to you, you'll find that the judge's order concerned the issue of custody. Insofar as abuse was concerned, the judge stated that it could not be established.

        The phrase “grossly inappropriate,” used to describe Allen's relationship with Dylan, was, in and of itself grossly inappropriate, and reflected the judge's anger and disgust over Woody's relationship with Soon-Yi, not any measured assessment of the relationship with Dylan.

        Speaking of which, one last point…I was so nauseated by the Soon-Yi affair when the news first broke in 1992 that I could not bring myself to watch another Woody Allen film. And I went cold turkey for 20 years….until this idiotic fracas erupted from the Twitterverse and made me wonder if the man had been unfalry maligned.

        Now I've seen a half dozen of Woody's movies from the last two decades that I'd missed, and for no good reason. This man is a thinker and an artist and he contributes to our culture. What a tragedy if this were to be obscured by anonymous troglodytes like you, and narcissistic ninnies like Dylan.

      • Albertine Disparue

        Where I come from what you have written is called bullshit. The pictures of a 19 year old are evidence that a 7 year old has been molested.
        Oh Gloria, how inglorious your comment is!

    • Angel

      If you read the full story from the daily beast she had alledged that a few incidents happend at 3 as well. That a therapist agreed he was singling her out. That he was not supposed to be alone with Dylan because of the natiure of his odd behaviors toward this one particular child out of all the children. Not saying he did actually go through with it, but the therapist felt when Dylan was 3 he was definitely close to crossing the line.

      • robinkilgore

        Yeah…right …like a 3 year old would be in therapy and able to make such allegations.
        The “Daily Beast” must be like a Bible to you, since you read their sensationalized articles as if they were the gospel .

        Helen, I'm voting your comment up. Though it is (characteristically) devoid of substance, its brevity is a relief.

        • HelenNPN

          We are in agreement about something then.
          ; )

    • keith

      Very good point about it being a single and rather tame incident. Dylans histrionics shows that this is acting and trying to get her 15 minutes. It makes it harder for real victims to believed.

  • MatterEater

    Yea….nothing says credibility like your former 17 year old girlfriend speaking up for you. Where was she when your trial was on Woody for custody of your kids, so the judge could here her glowing endorsement of you, and testify on this matter?

    Oh.

    That's right, you didn't do that.

    It also makes me sick that this article keeps highlighting the word adopted. Dylan and Soon-Yi and the rest were siblings….which is what the courts deemed the Wood a danger to all involved.

    Not a pedo… …the Wood`s been quoted as glad his relationships have a “more paternal feeling,” as…..“All the women I went out with were basically my age. Now, here, it just works like magic. The very inequality of me being older and much more accomplished, much more experienced, takes away any real meaningful conflict.”

    • la la

      so true, WA always highlights ‘adopted’ because somehow it makes it better and less incestuous than if Mia and Soon Yi shared DNA…that he stole her daughter by having sex with her doesn't matter. Magical fairytale love right there!

      • robinkilgore

        Let's not forget that Mia Farrow destroyed the marriage of the much older Andre Previn by becoming pregnant by him and let's also remember that, while in a “relationship” with Mr. Allen, she carried on a clandestine sexual affair with her ex, Frank Sinatra, who also got her pregnant…and, that for years she not only tried to pass that bastard off as Woody Allen's baby but also collected child support for that illegitimate child from Woody Allen, along with child support for Dylan and Moses who were jointly adopted by Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, ‘People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones'.

        • Pennylane22

          Ahhhh… so her daughter DESERVED to BE MOLESTED Then! Gotcha! Thanks for making that glaringly clear! Sins of the Parents, eh?

          • robinkilgore

            Your take on this is not grounded in reality. Consensual sex for a 19 year old is not being “molested”. Don't forget that Mia Farrow, her adoptive mother, was very sexually active with older men at 18.

    • robinkilgore

      The court never found Mr. Allen to be a “danger” to the children…or anyone else for that matter ! Read the custody decision !

      • HelenNPN

        You are just plain wrong.

        • robinkilgore

          I realize that you WANT to believe these ancient allegations that she has resurfaced and that no amount of reason or evidence to the contrary will satisfy your need to be on the Farrow bandwagon. But, that still doesn't make you “right” or me “wrong”. A child can have false memories, particularly if she's been traumatized by a dysfunctional childhood and a demanding and angry mother that she wanted to please. Reality can become a blur for bipolar people that have grown up in that kind of environment with public attention and multiple scandals brought about by her mother.

          • HelenNPN

            In his 33-page decision, Judge Wilk found that Mr. Allen’s behavior
            toward Dylan was “grossly inappropriate and that measures must be taken
            to protect her.” The judge also recounts Farrow’s misgivings
            regarding Allen’s behavior toward Dylan from the time she was between
            two and three years old. According to the judge’s decision, Farrow told
            Allen, “You look at her [Dylan] in a sexual way. You fondled her . . .
            You don’t give her any breathing room. You look at her when she’s
            naked.” – Vanity Fair

            I am simply interested in correcting the record when it comes to misrepresentations like yours.

          • robinkilgore

            If you truly wish to avoid “misrepresentations” then you should also acknowledge that in Judge Wilk's CUSTODY decision that he provided for visitation by Mr. Allen…something that would certainly NOT be the case if he had been found guilty of ANY child molestation in ANY case brought against him. Such a finding does not exist !
            Of course you can quote statements and allegations made by Mia Farrow in a magazine article that have NO corroboration and try to pass that off as ‘fact’ , too. However, the bottom line is that Mr. Allen was NEVER brought up on any child molestation charge EVER and that folks like yourself thrive on manufacturing conclusions that have not and cannot be proven to be true by sensationalizing and embellishing things to suit and support your own twisted fantasy.
            If you truly care about the “record” then you should stick to the actual facts that can be proven in this matter…not your baseless conclusions or the unproven and highly questionable ravings of a woman who might have been better off left in the orphanage, or her bitter, twisted, dysfunctional adoptive mother with her own axe to grind. Just because you WANT it to be true, does NOT make it so. Just the FACTS, ma'am, if you are even capable of such.

          • HelenNPN

            I wouldn't insult a stone wall by comparing it to you.

          • keith

            Dylan was his first child. It is normal for a father to be besotted.
            I have heard numerous women express this kind of concern that fsther is too affectionate. Woody is an easygoing guy who would not hide his feelings like a lot of guys.
            Furthermore he did this stuff in front of other adults. Wilks is an idiot that thought allen should not be with soon yi. They are still together after 20yrs so he was wrong and so are you. Common sense.

      • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

        I read the custody decision, and either you did not, or you are being paid by Woody Allen to misrepresent it

        • robinkilgore

          You obviously DIDN'T read the court decision. NOWHERE in that decision does it say that Mr. Allen was a “danger” to the children. As a matter of FACT, the court laid out terms for visitation…something that would not happen under ANY circumstance if he were a “danger”.
          The court only found that, because of his ongoing relationship with the children's adopted sister, Soon-Yi, that it would be “inappropriate” for him to take custody of any of the other children.
          And, although many many years ago I worked in a film that Mia Farrow appeared in, I have never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Allen, let alone be hired by him for any purpose.
          Btw, I'm 65 and I remember this entire episode between Woody Allen and Mia Farrow quite well.

          • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

            The judge denied Woody Allen access to his children because he was a destructive influence in their lives. Did he use the word “danger”? I would have to reread the entire thing again. What he wrote about Allen was fairly condemning, all through the decision he makes it clear in his opinion Allen is completely incompetent, He pretty much says that Allen is inappropriate with Dylan, at times emotionally abusive with Ronan, and completely indifferent to Moses.

            Most tellingly, the judge made it clear that he did not have any faith in the judgment of Allen's therapists, or the investigation that cleared him. He may have not said that Allen sexually abused Dylan, but he certainly thought it possible. He would not allow Allen any contact with Dylan outside of a therapeutic setting… why didn't Allen pursue building a healthy relationship with a child he had raised for 7 years? It makes me think that perhaps because he couldn't get away with what he had been doing, he just lost interest.

          • robinkilgore

            You've not only embellished and added to what the judge actually wrote in that custody case but you've mischaracterized the visitation terms and imposed your own interpretation.
            Btw, Woody Allen didn't “raise” Dylan or any of the children in Mia Farrow's household as you allege, nor did he ever live with them. He maintained his own residence in Manhattan, away from Farrow and the children and was always very busy with his constant film projects.
            Regarding the facts of the case:

            In August 1992, Allen sued for full custody of his and Farrow's three children, claiming that Farrow was concocting the sexual abuse allegations.

            The head doctor of the police-appointed medical team gave sworn testimony that Dylan “either invented the story under the stress of living in a volatile and unhealthy home or that it was planted in her mind by her mother” because of the “inconsistent” presentation of the story by Dylan

  • Newzheimer

    And Samantha's Geimer's (Roman Polanski's victim) mother was the one who encouraged her to go with Polanski on the occasion of her drugging and subsequent rape by Polanski.

    So what if Stacy Nelkin's mother was OK with her relationship with Woody Allen? Wouldn't be the first time a mother pimped out her child and it won't be the last.

  • sammy

    Money talks, so how much did Woody's PR pay her??? They dig up an old gf of Woody, and she states that Woody didn't diddle Dylan? What a crock. I believe Dylan.

    • sammy

      Oh, and she wasn't an “old” gf but another young'un

      • robinkilgore

        She was a 17 yr old that dated Woody Allen with her parent's permission !

        • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

          That you see nothing wrong with a high school girl dating a man in his 40s says a lot about you, and none of it is good

          • robinkilgore

            It was a different time. Just as there was a time when child brides of 13 married much older men in most of these United States. Heck, some Mormons are still doing it today. And let's not forget the FACT that Mia Farrow herself went through a series of relationships with much older men beginning when she was 18…and they were sexual relationships. I don't know if that is the case with the 17 year old that dated Woody Allen with her parent's permission when he was in his 40's.
            Biological FACT: girls mature into women much faster than boys mature into men.

          • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

            You can try to justify Allen's behavior of seducing multiple teenage girls by pointing out that Mia had age inappropriate relationships, but that doesn't wash with me.

            Mia Farrow also had a pervert adopt two of her children, she obviously lacked boundaries herself, which seems common in families with a lack of healthy sex boundaries. Her brother is a molester, something tells me that was her attraction to a man who is as physically grotesque as Woody Allen

          • robinkilgore

            Woody Allen did not “seduce multiple teenage girls”. He dated a 17 yr old for a time with her parent's permission and he entered into a relationship with the 20 year old Soon-Yi Previn.
            Mia Farrow, on the other hand, seduced older men multiple times. Just prior to her allegations against him and before she discovered his relationship with Soon-Yi, she wrote to the court in the finalization of the adoptions, about what a wonderful and loving father Allen was for the children.
            The woman is a psychotic schizophrenic dysfunctional mess and Allen has been much better off without her and her own philandering ways.

          • mereed

            “It was a different time” ???? I have news for you. It wasn't that long ago. At that time, it was NOT just a-ok for 46 year old perverts to seduce 18 year olds (and waaaay younger), and to marry step-daughters. Really, there were standards, but probably nothing you would understand, as a defender of child molesters. You're a pretty sick puppy, actually.

          • Albertine Disparue

            Mia Farrow had her father/family's blessing when she started dating Frank Sinatra. Mia's father was sleeping with Frank's first wife Ava Gardner when he introduced Frank to Mia (Mia was only 11).
            I guess at that time it was not frowned upon; at least not at Farrow's and Sinatra's world.

          • robinkilgore

            Nelkin and Allen dated in the 70's… and if you think that we're still living in that same time then you need to wake-up and smell the coffee. There was a sexual revolution going on during that time, women were becoming ‘liberated', people and society were much more ‘experimental',and things have changed a great deal since then. He was 42 and she was nearly 18 and the youngest woman that Woody Allen ever dated….incidentally, by 18 Mia Farrow was married to Frank Sinatra, age 50, who she began dating while underage and had known since age 11….do you contend that Frank Sinatra was also a “child molester” ???
            Btw, Soon-Yi's adoptive father was Andre Previn, whose marriage Mia Farrow destroyed by getting pregnant by the much older and very married, Andre Previn. She was never Woody Allen's “stepdaughter”, nor related to him in any possible way, nor did he “raise her”.
            I believe that you're the one with the “sick” mind,actually, since you want to cling to a fantasy that demeans a man because it suits your imagination about having insight into the life of someone who has suffered needlessly because of the unsubstantiated claims made against him by a child under the influence and the control of an angry, bitter, and vengeful mother whose approval and affection she so desperately needed.
            .

  • cwon1

    The specifics of the case are a matter of legal record, none of this is going anywhere.

    As for the social trend and misandry as a general trend it is worth noting. In the 60's and 70's the world was one way and now, I would largely say because of AIDS and other factors, the world is part Victorian and even more permissive. Consider what we are saying in the gay agenda?

    Liberals never need logic or consistency to blather on. Young girlfriends are the same as pedophile but you are homophobic if you mention most of the Church's problems were with gay Priests. Who gets to set all these social standards of behavior to begin with?

    Allen has enough creepish activity to judge but it's distracted by claims that can't be proven at this point. In an odd way he gets a social pass because of the raving lunatics can't make a logical moral point. It looks like the Salem Witch Trial where the worshiping of Mia and Dylan Farrow are to circumvent the law of the land.

  • Diana Pfeifer

    Well let's ask Ronan how he feels about his 66 yr old brother who is in prison for child molestation (Mia's brother). That should get the show rolling! Mia has seriously screwed these kids up.

    • Pennylane22

      Ahh.. so that means it was OK for DYLAN to be Molested then, right? BC a 7yr old needs to pay the price for distant relatives crimes. Hmmm…

      • robinkilgore

        It's NEVER “OK” for a child to be “molested”. It's ALSO not “OK” to falsely accuse someone because you have a family vendetta against that person.

        • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

          Dylan has no romantic grudge against Allen, so why would she have a vendetta against him? You can try to conflate Dylan's story with Mia Farrow, but it isn't going to wash with logical people that can separate the two

          • robinkilgore

            That isn't “logic”, my dear, nor does it show an ability to “separate” anything. You have shown time and again through your comments that you lack the ability to rely upon what is factual and continually draw from the well of fantasy thinking.
            The hatred and demonization of one “parent” toward another can easily create a family “vendetta” dynamic that can be carried forward by dutiful children that want to maintain a demanding mother's approval.

          • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

            I am not your “dear”… you have lots of logical fallacies in the way you defend Woody Allen. Your favorite tactic is deflection. Your second favorite is ad hominem, and then you follow it up with a dose of circular logic.

          • mereed

            I don't think there's too much doubt that robinkilgore is paid, and paid well, by Woody's minions to post exactly as she/he has. Pretty despicable to get paid to defend child molesters, but you know, it takes all kinds.

          • robinkilgore

            Pathetic conclusions by people who are not only ungrounded in reality but who cannot reasonably refute my arguments to their deceptive thinking and unreasonable and far-fetched conclusions.
            I'm not “paid” by anyone …I give my responses freely in defense of reason and fact-based logic and not your “fantasy thinking”.
            Perhaps I should make the claim, as you have done toward me, that Mia Farrow is paying you or that you're part of a PR firm working for Ronan or a book publisher drumming up future book sales for Dylan…..it would be ridiculous, but then, so are your loopy claims.

    • robinkilgore

      Mia Farrow has a brother in prison for child molestation? Ronan's uncle? I didn't realize that she had a brother. Perhaps HE molested Dylan, because it sure wasn't Woody Allen.

      • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

        People from dysfunctional families with sexual abuse often form relationships with sexual abusers. Mia's brother's history goes to support the dysfunctional environment that Mia created with Woody Allen… the custody judge even said that Mia's largest parental flaw was her romantic relationship with him

        • robinkilgore

          Mia Farrow had many parental “flaws”. Woody Allen was the least among them. Her OWN character and “romantic” history is her greatest flaw.
          Woody Allen was just the scapegoat for this very dysfunctional woman. Ask their adopted son, Moses Farrow, who was a teen at the time. He's pretty clear that she was a dysfunctional, unstable,histrionically demanding, and often scary presence in the children's lives. He was present on the day in question and has been quite clear that during the visit Woody Allen and Dylan were never out of his presence.

          • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

            Moses Farrow is not credible to me. Unlike Dylan and Ronan, he cannot seem to keep his story straight and he has a history of longing for a father relationship that Allen symbolically afforded him. This was also discussed at length in the custody decision… I have even read the letters that Moses wrote to Allen at the time, begging him to be a part of his life… very sad.

          • robinkilgore

            What's really “sad” is your unwillingness to give any credence to Moses, who was not only present on the day in question, but who was a teenager of 15 at the time and not a young, insecure, and impressionable 7 year old who was vying with all of her siblings and the younger ‘natural’ child of Mia Farrow (Ronan), for attention.

      • Jill Friedman

        What makes you so sure Woody Allen could not have molested Dylan? He had sex with her older sister, whom he had known since she was 8 or 10. He was always taking Dylan into separate rooms away from the rest of the family. Witnesses said he couldn't keep his hands off her and he was seen with his head in her lap. He demanded custody or unsupervised visitation with her and apparently turned down the supervised visitation. There's a lot of red flags there.

        • robinkilgore

          FACT: You are inventing your “red flags”. Not only was he rarely around the children because he lived in a separate location in New York…NOT Connecticut…and he was not “taking Dylan into separate rooms away from the family”. What you've done is taken hearsay and tried to transform it into fact.
          “Witnesses said”….REALLY ???? WHAT “witnesses” ???
          Dylan had nothing in common with her also adopted (and by a DIFFERENT “father”) sister Soon-Yi who was almost 20 years old at the time. Do you really think that Soon-Yi and the much, much younger Dylan had a strong familial bond ?
          Most teenagers and young adults don't want to hang out with a sibling that is so very much younger. Soon-Yi was more likely to have had a stronger connection to her younger teenage brother, Moses, who was also an Asian adoptee. Dylan did not get adopted straight from the womb and may actually not have been a part of that family for such a long time. Her adoption was only finalized around the time of these allegations.
          People such as yourself just seem to thrive on thinking the worst about others whether there is actual evidence to support their dislike or not. Some people prop themselves up by demeaning others. Somehow it seems to make them feel as if they are “better than” the person that they attack with lies and innuendo. Delusional thinking is particularly ugly when it's at the expense of another's reputation.

        • Albertine Disparue

          Mia's father John introduced his daughter to Frank Sinatra at the age of eleven.
          Frank Sinatra was 50 years old when he married an “impossibly immature teenager” Mia Farrow, but they had started dating before that.
          Should we jump to the conclusion that Sinatra was a child molester?

  • Diana Pfeifer

    OOPS! I meant his “66 year old Uncle”

  • Michael Difani

    I've seen several Allen movies over the years such as Bananas, Sleeper, Everything You Wanted to Know about Sex and were afraid to Ask and my favorite, “Annie Hall”, 1977. Pulling Marshall McLuhan (“Medium is the Message”) out of a theater line was great. Or after a night with Annie, he is shown readjusting his jaw.

  • robinkilgore

    Clearly, you have an axe to grind. Perhaps you were molested as a child and are projecting your pain and rage on Mr. Allen instead of your perpetrator.
    Sure, you can find a few naysayers that have their own axe to grind against Woody Allen and they can make any number of claims that have no basis in reality but are totally based in their dislike for him and their desire for attention. You can draw all kinds of false conclusions by entertaining manufactured “facts” and anyone can be made to look bad if you cherry-pick information and put it out of context.
    Too often people WANT to believe the ‘sensational’ and fail to err on the side of what is factual and provable.
    There was NEVER a court case about “molestation” of Dylan Farrow.
    The ONLY court cases were about child CUSTODY, although it's clear that you want to infer otherwise.

    • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

      So basically, you think that personally attacking HelenNPN will distract from the evidence with which she has come to the logical conclusions that supporting Dylan is the ethical way to think

      And there was a custody case that dealt with Allen's creepy behavior towards Dylan, you should review that decision before twisting facts as you accuse HelenNPN of

      • robinkilgore

        I'm not personally attacking Helen, who btw had no trouble name-calling me or Mr. Allen. The fact is that she intentionally lied and misrepresented facts about this story, not once, but repeatedly… and is guilty of several manufactured “facts” that she has put forth with a somewhat rabid tone to further impune Mr. Allen's character…all without benefit of ‘being there'.or knowing Mr. Allen personally.
        Although she may, personally, support Dylan Farrow and find her and her story ‘believable', the facts are that neither law enforcement, the child psychologists that they brought in who specialized in child abuse, NOR the court have found the allegations about molestation to be at all credible. This was decided LONG ago ! But, who needs FACTS, RIGHT ???
        The only “court cases” were pertaining to child custody and , although the judge did not look favorably upon Mr. Allen's relationship with Mia Farrow and Andre Previn's adopted ADULT daughter, Soon-Yi, she was well beyond legal age and they have proven their love for one another was genuine by being happily married with adopted children of their own for many, many, many years….an accomplishment that Mia Farrow never attained in ANY of her relationships….and there were many.
        I urge any and all to google ‘Woody Allen's 1992 “60 MINUTES” interview’ to WATCH and gain an enlightening and common-sense understanding of what actually occurred and to understand WHY the allegations made by Dylan and Mia Farrow were unscrupulous and intentional.

        • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

          Fact: a prosecutor said that there was evidence that Dylan was molested and the only reason he did not bring a case is he did not think Dylan could withstand testifying after the trauma Allen had put her through

          Fact: There were experts that testified that Dylan presented as a sex abuse victim… these were experts in child sexual abuse who actually were much more thorough than the Yale Have team, and they kept their notes.

          The evidence Farrow had were several eyewitnesses and physical evidence of Allen being in the attic he claimed he could not possibly have went into as a claustrophobic. There was hair evidence as well as fingerprint evidence. He was inconsistent in his story.

          He was seeing a therapist for his inappropriate behavior with Dylan predating his split with Mia for several months

          Etc etc etc

          • robinkilgore

            Your “facts” are not facts at all, but a set of different and opposing conclusions.
            FACT: Charges were NEVER brought against Mr. Allen and the professionals that initially had contact with Dylan found that she was not only inconsistent with her story but that her allegations of molestation were not credible.
            FACT: Her then teenage brother, Moses, was present on the day that Mr. Allen visited and says that not only did Mr. Allen and Dylan never leave the family rooms where they were all gathered, but they never had the opportunity to be alone.
            Remember that Mia Farrow, the month BEFORE had made the discovery of the pictures of Soon-Yi at Mr. Allen's apartment and that after threatening him by saying that she had something “planned for him” in retaliation had him visit the children at her place in Connecticut while she was, conveniently, out shopping and that it is said that she had told him that he took HER daughter and that she was going to take HIS (meaning Dylan).
            WHY on earth would a “concerned” mother who says that she had taken Dylan to therapy at age 3 , go off and leave her and the other children with a man that she did not trust?????
            WATCH the 1992 interview that Woody Allen did for “60 Minutes” if you don't mind having your eyes opened ! It's available to watch online for free ….IF you can handle a different “truth” !

          • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

            Nothing you said in anyway mitigates the facts I presented. There is evidence in favor of Dylan's story, and considering Allen's inappropriate pervy ways, I believe her

          • robinkilgore

            Continue to bury your head in the sand, if you wish. You know the old adage: “You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make them drink”.
            The “facts” you “presented” are not facts, at all….only conjecture, as have been most of the conclusions that people have drawn without benefit of evidence to support such conclusions.
            Of course “believe” what you wish…but don't mislead others with your unsupported conclusions. Try sticking with the facts that are incontestable and your “conclusions” fall flat.

          • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

            Fingerprints in the attic that Woody Allen said he never went into, hair he left behind, point to his guilt. His thuggery against law enforcement and prosecutors… hiring private detectives to intimidate public servants is well known. His spinning of half truths and outright lies that he published in the NYTs, the fact that he never went out of his way to reestablish a relationship with his daughter under the terms set by the family law judge, are all facts on the record.

            I have no blind spots here. I am objectively looking at a man that has shown through his art and his sexual history that he lacks reasonable sexual boundaries that the rest of us follow. Perhaps he thinks he is above following the rules and norms of society. I find that people who are like Allen are just not to be believed, and I give complete deference towards Judge Wilks. I do not think he was out to get Allen, I think Allen justifiably sent up red flags

            There were no “fingerprints in the attic” and the hair that might have been found there could have easily been planted by Mia Farrow who, for several years, had intimate access to Mr. Allen's physical person and things such as hairbrushes.
            There is no evidence of “hiring private detectives to “intimidate” public servants. The officials in 1992 did not defer to or cave on any aspect of their investigation because of his celebrity.
            And, after the poisoning of the children's minds by Mia Farrow, her ongoing threats to Mr. Allen, and the instability that she displayed in front of the children who she had gained full custody of, it is no wonder that Woody Allen refrained from further private contact. Why would he want to put himself in the position of having more false claims made about him ? He honored his commitment to be responsible by paying child support while Dylan grew up and grieved the loss of the relationship that he had with Dylan, Moses, and the bastard child, Satchel (aka/Ronan) that Mia Farrow deceived him into believing was his.
            There is nothing “objective” about your views on Woody Allen nor your pathetic attempt at claiming to have insight into his “art and sexual history”.
            Judge Wilks, btw, was reprimanded, as well as detective Maco, for putting unfounded and non-evidenced claims about this case in the public record.

    Doesn't Stacey Nelkin coming forward and admitting that she dated the middle-aged Wooody Allen while still in high school sort of lend credence to Dylan's assertions? I know that this was not her intent, but…

      I know someone with the same behavioral makeup of this man. He has adopted 6 girls. And been accused by some of their sleep over pals of him looking at them in the showers and touching them while asleep. He is always luring girls in not unlike mr. Allen. And guess what???? Because he hasn't outright penetrated with his penis they cited lack of evidence to press charges. Sickening.

      • robinkilgore

        What's really “sickening” is your attempt to paint Mr. Allen with the very broad brush of someone ELSE'S alleged behavior. Ridiculous !

        • Angel

          There is a definite pattern of pedophiles like it or not. He does fit that pattern. I am not saying that he did or didn't do what has been said. Too many years have passed for this to be cleared up. But to say he is definitely innocent is ignorant as well.

          • robinkilgore

            What's really “ignorant” is your failure to acknowledge the fact that a “pedophile” has an uncontrollable compulsion that would necessarily lead to repeat offenses. This allegation by Dylan and her bitter mother is completely isolated in Mr. Allen's life and was found , by multiple professionals in several different agencies at the time, to be lacking in credibility. There is a stark difference between being attracted to younger women and being attracted to a child. You simply have a personal prejudice based on your own fantasies about Mr. Allen.

          • Albertine Disparue

            On the contrary, he does not fit that pattern.

    • Albertine Disparue

      No.

    I believe Dylan…

    This broad has milked her pervy relationship with Allen for all its worth. Is she writing a book she is trying to hawk?

    • robinkilgore

      I believe that it's actually Dylan Farrow that is laying the groundwork for her OWN book that she's trying to “hawk” or shop around to publishers..

      • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

        Nelkin is a self-styled “relationship expert” and has her own YouTube channel and we She wrote a book called “You Can’t Afford to Break Up: How an Empty Wallet and a Dirty Mind Can Save Your Relationship”. She is frequently called on by the program “Fox & Friends.”

        That is from her wikipedia page

        • robinkilgore

          Yes, and Woody Allen's adopted son, Moses, is a Family Therapist….and, not only was he a teenager and present on the day in question but he has said emphatically that there is no truth to Dylan's allegations of being molested on that day and that their mother, Mia Farrow, exercised a very manipulative hold over her “children” and was a dysfunctional and sometimes terrifying presence.

          • http://www.facebook.com/julia.oceania Julia Oceania

            Funny, you didn't address the fact that Nelkin writes books and tries to get face time on TV, yet accuses others of doing the same as she… a classic case of projection.

          • robinkilgore

            I happen to agree with you that Ms. Nelkin appears to be using her brief past connection with Woody Allen to get herself some facetime. However, one could also note that she is also offering a different perspective about the motivation of the Farrows in exploiting this very old and seemingly once resolved issue from the ancient past.
            Personally, I'm glad to see that folks like her, as well as Barbara Walters, and Mr. Allen's adopted son, Moses, are standing up to the mud-slingers.

  • robinkilgore

    Google : Woody Allen's 1992 60 Minutes interview and watch it. It's a REVELATION !

  • Soldier

    These are some big accusations. I don't know who to trust… I'm leaning towards the girl who is making the accusation, but then again there's a lot of Women out there that lie about being raped…. Hmmm… Don't know who's telling the truth. Anyone willing to take a lie detector test? I think they both should, and will see what the lie detector tests show.

    People can claim that lie detector tests are bullshit, but if it has one person telling the truth and the other lying, that would be something. If lie detector tests were bullshit, it would come up as both lying or both telling the truth. That is why a lie detector test is much more accurate than ignorant people say.

    • robinkilgore

      Mr. Allen did, in fact, submit to a lie detector test at time and the results supported his innocence.

      • mereed

        It was his own private company that administered this so-called “test.” He refused to undergo one in front of the police. Tells you a lot that, doesn't it.

        • robinkilgore

          He didn't have “his own private company that administered this so-called “test” “…. The test was administered by professionals, even if it was not conducted by the State of Connecticut.

          It's also an important point that Mia Farrow refused to take a lie detector test about her possible “coaching” of Dylan in this matter.

          Read the very informative and extremely reasonable article::

      In custody cases it is amost obligatory for the mother to claim father is a ped.
      Both dylan and mia belong in jail. Another issu is that having your sex organ s fondled is not that big a deal.
      She escaped so even if true it really does not justify the rage she is showing . He has already paid dearly for this alleged incident. Dylan is pissed because she is a loser who never succeeded in life let alone become a star like her parents. Believe me we all want to at least match our parents success

  • Mom

    I was watching Ronan Farrow on John Stewart tonight and one thing led to another and I ended up reading this crazy blog. My only comment is about Robin Kilgore and the way he consistently refers to Sung Yi Previn as “almost 20” as if that makes it okay for someone Allen's age to be with her. I have a daughter who is “almost 20” aka 19, and no man over the age of even 30 better even show an interest on her. Creepers! Disgusting! No excuses!

    • keith

      By 19 most western females have had multiple sexual partners. You would have to catch a girl around 13 to find a virgin. Your daughter won't date an older guy unless he has money or fame so relax. Most guys involuntarily look at 13 yr olds. 19 yr old girls are far from looking as fresh and sexy as younger girls. But of course u know this but are just too bitter

  • keith

    Woody is attracted to girls past puberty.
    It takes balls to date a 17 yr old or a step dàughter. I would say woody is the opposite of a pedophile. His history of chasing young women when they are smoking hot shows he is an extemely normal male. The peds and gays use menopausal women for beards.

  • Menolikeyu

    It's crazy that the person who was a teenager when she was dating a middle-aged man can say she doesn't believe that Woody Allen is a child molester.

    • keith

      A ped is someone who is attracted to girls who have not hit puberty. Females are most fertile and sexy around 16. Guys who prefer females past their peak fertility are gay. Woody did not do it. But you are too embittered to admit it. You likely started having sex at 13.
