“Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon,” Allen’s spokeswoman, Leslee Dart, told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.

Dylan Farrow chose to speak after seeing Woody Allen receiving a Golden Globe for his career and three nominations for an Oscar for Blue Jasmine.

These allegations had first surfaced in 1992, when the Mia Farrow and Allen were engaged in a legal battle over the custody of their three children.

An investigation into these allegations was opened. The experts concluded that Dylan hadn’t been molested and Allen wasn’t charged.

At the time Farrow had discovered that Allen was having an affair with one of her adopted daughters, Soon-Yi Previn, then 19. The director eventually married Previn.
