Dylan Farrow Insists She Wasn’t Brainwashed

Dylan Farrow

Dylan Farrow has hit back at suggestions she has been "brainwashed" by Mia Farrow.

Woody Allen's adopted daughter, who spoke out at the weekend alleging he had abused her at the age of seven, insists she wasn't coached by her mother despite her older brother Moses' recent claims the allegations were merely part of Mia's "vengeful" response to her former partner's affair with her adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn.

The 28 year old also denied she came forward before the Oscars in a bid to ruin the Blue Jasmine director's career and told PEOPLE.com, "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."

Dylan is very upset by Moses' decision to stand by Woody, who vehemently denies the allegations, and speak up for him: "My brother has broken my heart. 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."

Mia first made the abuse claims during a 1992 custody battle with the filmmaker. The allegations were investigated but later dropped without charge.
