Woody Allen says molested daughter allegation is 'discredited'

Woody Allen on Thursday issued another denial of child molestation, accusing his ex-lover's family of "cynically" jumping on the Time's Up movement in Hollywood to repeat a "discredited allegation."

 

The legendary American film director issued the statement after his estranged, adopted daughter Dylan Farrow revived allegations that Allen sexually assaulted her as a seven-year-old girl, with her first full television interview broadcast on CBS television Thursday.

 

"Even though the Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity afforded by the Time's Up movement to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn't make it any more true today than it was in the past," said Allen, 82, in a statement sent to AFP.

 

"I never molested my daughter -- as all investigations concluded a quarter of a century ago," he added.
