Dylan Farrow, Mia Farrow
Dylan Farrow has responded to Woody Allen's "final word" on the sex abuse allegations she first leveled against her father more than 20 years ago.
"Once again, Woody Allen is attacking me and my family in an effort to discredit and silence me — but nothing he says or writes can change the truth," Dylan wrote in a statement obtained by People.
Dylan Farrow pens open letter detailing alleged sexual abuse by Woody Allen
Though Allen claims that Dylan's story was inconsistent and that her mother Mia Farrow had coached her, Dylan writes: "For 20 years, I have never wavered in describing what he did to me. I will carry the memories of surviving these experiences for the rest of my life."
Allen devoted the majority of his op-ed to attacking Mia, even bringing up the unrelated questions surrounding Ronan Farrow's parentage. He also questioned the "necessity" and "benefit" of Dylan speaking out, implying the letter was coerced to "simply advance her mother's shabby agenda."
"His op-ed is the latest rehash of the same legalese, distortions and outright lies he has leveled at me for the past 20 years," Dylan's statement concluded. "I hope this is the end of his vicious attacks and of the media campaign by his lawyers and publicists, as he's promised. I won't let the truth be buried and I won't be silenced."
