Moses Farrow is making his voice loudly heard in the ongoing Dylan Farrow-Woody Allen controversy.

On February 1, Dylan penned a letter in The New York Times that detailed multiple occasions of sexual abuse at the hands of the famous director, dating back to when she was seven years old.

Allen’s attorney has since come out and shot down these allegations, alleging Mia Farrow brainwashed Dylan into believing the story as a way of getting back at Allen for sleeping with her stepdaughter, Soon-Yi Previn, who is now Allen’s wife.

And Moses Farrow is essentially saying the same thing.


"My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister," Moses Farrow tells People. "And I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi."

Moses and Dylan Farrow were adopted by Mia Allen and Farrow and were at the center of a custody battle between the estranged couple in 1993.

Mia eventually won, while Allen was investigated – but not charged – with molestation. He has denied all claims regarding Dylan since then.

"Woody did not molest my sister," Moses says simply. "She loved him and looked forward to seeing him when he would visit. She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him."

Moses points all blame in Mia Farrow’s direction (he is close to Allen and Soon-Yi, but very distant from his adopted mother and siblings) and says he doesn’t know whether or not Dylan believes her own story.

"I don’t know if my sister really believes she was molested or is trying to please her mother. Pleasing my mother was very powerful motivation because to be on her wrong side was horrible."

Dylan Farrow, meanwhile, issued her own statement in response to her stepbrother’s take.

"This is such a betrayal to me and my whole family," she says."My memories are the truth and they are mine and I will live with that for the rest of my life.

"My mother never coached me. She never planted false memories in my brain. My memories are mine. I remember them. She was distraught when I told her.

"When I came forward with my story she was hoping against hope that I had made it up. In one of the most heartbreaking conversations I have ever had, she sat me down and asked me if I was telling the truth. She said that Dad said he didn’t do anything. and I said, ‘He’s lying.’"
