The dirty tale of Woody Allen and the Farrows haunting him moved to a more toxic level Wednesday: One of his sons with Mia Farrow repeated that Allen's 7th -year-old daughter never molested, adding that Farrow has been physically and emotionally abusing all her children for years.
Moses Farrow, 40, a professional family therapist, published a long essay in his blog, "A Son Speaks Out," and again explained what he had said earlier: That Allen did not abuse his younger sister Allen's daughter, Dylan Farrow, in August 1992 in the house of Mia Farrow in Connecticut.
"In the face of incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father Woody Allen, I can not remain silent, as he continues to be convicted of crimes he has not committed," wrote Moses Farrow, who was adopted by Farr from South Korea in 1980 and later was taken over by Allen.
"I was present for everything that happened in our house before, during and after the alleged event," wrote Moses. "Now that the public hysteria has eased a bit from the beginning of the year and I hope the truth can be heard, I want to share my story."

His story is that there was no time when there was no one left in the house where Allen, now 82, could have expelled Dylan to harass her. Farrow, angered by Allen's affair with another of her adoptive daughters, soon turned 47 when Soon-Yi Previn instructed Moses to keep an eye on Allen.
"Together with five children, there were three adults in the house, all of whom have been told for months what a monster Woody was," Moses writes. "None of us would have allowed Dylan to leave with Woody, even if he tried."
After failing to convince the authorities to incriminate Allen, Farrow and her 32-year-old daughter and her biological son with Allen try Ronan Farrow, 30, to harm Allen and his film career by other means mainly through Jeremiah in the media and via social media.
Allen has always denied that he abused his daughter and she and her mother's claims were investigated decades ago by Connecticut authorities. Her conclusion: Nothing happened. Allen was never charged.
"Mia has reached the end of the legal runway after it has been established that the abuse never took place," wrote Moses. "But media problems thrive on the lack of long-term memory, and Twitter requires neither knowledge nor restraint."

Ronan Farrow (formerly known as Satchel) is the journalist who this year received a Pulitzer Prize for his work exposing decades of alleged sexuality Filmographer Harvey Weinstein, which enables the Me Too movement to proclaim sexual abuse of women.
Dylan Farrow responded to Moses with the tweet that his attack on her mother was an attempt to distract himself from Dylan's "credible" allegations that it contradicts his earlier statements and that it is easily refuted.
"My brother is a restless person, I'm so sorry he does," she tweeted.
Neither Mia Farrow, 73, nor Ronan Farrow reacted directly to Moses Farrow ]even though Ronan, in an interview with NPR Fresh Air described his mother as "a strong working single mother" who "was incredibly impartial in standing with and defending her children"  Mia Farrow and Allen's spokespeople did not immediately respond to US TODAY requests.
For those actors who have recently voiced their concerns about collaborating with Allen in his films, Moses wrote that they had "accepted the hysteria of Twitter mobs and reiterated a 25-year history of discredited history."
"Please consider what I have to say," he wrote. "After all, I was there – in the house, in the room – and I know both my dad and my mother and what everyone can do much better than you."
While Moses Farrow's defense of Allen is not new The peculiarity of his attack on Mia Farrow's parenting is, especially from a therapist, and especially when it targets a woman famous for being an actress as an actress.
He says Farrow's anger over Allen's and Soon-Yi's treachery has upset her. They "brainwash" their children and he describes their alleged methods to achieve this. He describes dysfunctions in her own family (alcoholic, nefarious father, convicted brother of a child molester, other brother suicide) and her own betrayal of a close friend through her affair with her boyfriend's husband.
Even their adoption of several children came from a dark place, he writes, given "the reality within our walls."
"I saw siblings, some blind or disabled, who were dragged down a flight of stairs to be thrown into a bedroom or closet, and then had the door locked from the outside She even closed my brother Thaddeus, who is paraplegic of polio, overnight in an outer shed as a punishment for a slight transgression, "he wrote.
He says that Soon-Yi is her most common scapegoat because she would oppose her mother. He said his mother once threw a large porcelain piece at her head and hit her with a telephone receiver.
He wrote that she had once beaten him severely for speaking back. "I was beaten, deflated, beaten and downcast, Mia had taken my voice and my self-confidence, it was clear that she would not stand it if I was just a little bit outside of her carefully designed reality." It was an education this paradoxically made me both deeply loyal and obedient and deeply anxious. "
He also addressed his sister Dylan directly and said that she commented on her mother's" abuse "and" she "" helped "him out
"And what she did to you is unbearable. I wish you peace, and the wisdom of understanding that your life serves the purpose of helping our mother destroy our father's call a kind of lasting path, "he wrote.
In the end, he appeals to his mother that "Enough is enough" and there is "time for this retribution to end. "
" You once said to me, "It's not healthy to cling to anger, but now we're 26 years later, and I guess your next step will be to launch a campaign to discredit me because I know it's related to the territory and it's a burden I'm willing to bear. " Read or Share This Story: https://usat.ly/2LrwbFp
