Here is some of the ” proof” Woody is saying to show that he did not molest Dylan and Mia is at fault……
Twenty-one years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy.
The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer. I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan and any rational person would see the ploy for what it was. Common sense would prevail. After all, I was a 56-year-old man who had never before (or after) been accused of child molestation.
The sheer illogic of such a crazy scenario seemed to me dispositive. Notwithstanding, Mia insisted that I had abused Dylan and took her immediately to a doctor to be examined. Dylan told the doctor she had not been molested. Mia then took Dylan out for ice cream, and when she came back with her the child had changed her story.
The police began their investigation; a possible indictment hung in the balance. I very willingly took a lie-detector test and of course passed because I had nothing to hide. I asked Mia to take one and she wouldn’t.
Last week a woman named Stacey Nelkin, whom I had dated many years ago, came forward to the press to tell them that when Mia and I first had our custody battle 21 years ago, Mia had wanted her to testify that she had been underage when I was dating her, despite the fact this was untrue. Stacey refused. I include this anecdote so we all know what kind of character we are dealing with here. One can imagine in learning this why she wouldn’t take a lie-detector test.
After a full investigation the findings were:
“It is our expert opinion that Dylan was not sexually abused by Mr. Allen. Further, we believe that Dylan’s statements on videotape and her statements to us during our evaluation do not refer to actual events that occurred to her on August 4th, 1992 … In developing our opinion we considered three hypotheses to explain Dylan’s statements. First, that Dylan’s statements were true and that Mr. Allen had sexually abused her; second, that Dylan’s statements were not true but were made up by an emotionally vulnerable child who was caught up in a disturbed family and who was responding to the stresses in the family; and third, that Dylan was coached or influenced by her mother, Ms. Farrow. While we can conclude that Dylan was not sexually abused, we can not be definite about whether the second formulation by itself or the third formulation by itself is true. We believe that it is more likely that a combination of these two formulations best explains Dylan’s allegations of sexual abuse.”
Could it be any clearer?
hmmmm…… Gives me something to think about. I do believe Dylan thinks she was abused if this wasn’t true which makes MIa a Monster!
Derek Hough and Mark Ballas bought a house together. Ok all at once….awwwww
The “Dancing with the Stars” pros — who also happen to be BFFAEs — just went halfsies on a quaint little place in the Hollywood Hills.
Official documents show … the best buds each threw in on the $1.275 mil home … which comes equipped with a massive closet, fabulous kitchen and a spa bath that could easily fit two.
The master bathroom even contains his and his sinks.
They are more like brothers than best friends. They have been together since they were children. Derek even lived with Mark’ and his parents when he was learning how to dance.
Justin Bieber is scoffing at Selena Gomez, telling friends she has no one to blame but herself for her addictions …
… Bieber and his friends are laughing at Selena’s “bad influence” claims, because they say she’s always the drunk at the party. Bieber acknowledges he gets wasted, but whenever he had parties Selena was downright competitive … smoking as much weed as the guys and sometimes outdoing them. They say she was also HEAVY into booze.
We’re told Justin believes Selena’s parents are behind the blame game, because they HATE him. He thinks they are fueling Selena’s anger and making him a scapegoat.
Justin says he’s happy he’s no longer with Selena because she’s just too high maintenance … and out of control.
You never know what’s REALLY going on behind closed doors!
It was a letter she wished she never had to write, about something she says she wished had never happened.
Dylan Farrow says it took all the courage she had to finally pen the emotional open letter she sent to the New York Times detailing her claim that her adoptive father, Woody Allen, had sexually molested her as a child.
“It took all of my strength and all of my emotional fortitude to do what I did this week in the hope that it would put the truth out there,” says Dylan, 28, now a happily married writer. “That is my only ammunition. I don’t have money or publicists or limos or fancy apartments in Manhattan. All I have is the truth and that is all I put out there.”
Dylan says she knew she would be taking on one of the most powerful and esteemed forces in Hollywood. Indeed, some of Allen’s defenders claim she wrote the letter – during awards season, no less – to sabotage her father, whose film Blue Jasmine is nominated for three Oscars. Others have said she wrote it to vindicate her mother. (Mia did not see the piece before it ran, a family friend says.)
“I’ve been hearing that a lot,” says Dylan. “I’m happy to answer that. My intention in writing that piece was to put the truth on paper from a voice that was not able to speak before.”
“People are saying that I am not actually remembering what I remember. People are saying that my ‘evil mother’ brainwashed me because they refuse to believe that my sick, evil father would ever molest me, because we live in this society where victim blaming and inexcusable behavior – this taboo against shaming the famous at the expense of their victims – is accepted and excused.”
Her Turning Point
A turning point for her came on Jan. 12, the night of the Golden Globes, when Woody Allen received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement, which his longtime friend, Diane Keaton, accepted on his behalf.
Dylan says that she had wanted to share her side of the story for a long time. But, she says “After the Golden Globes, my brother Ronan showed immense bravery for standing up for the family and I realized it was my turn to stand up and to tell the truth.”
On Jan. 12, Ronan Tweeted, “Missed the Woody Allen tribute – did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?”
Dylan says she knew the letter would draw “backlash.”
“I knew there were people saying I was a liar and that this was part of some smear campaign – some bitter vendetta of my mother’s,” she says. But, she adds, “I didn’t realize that it was going to be a betrayal of this magnitude.”
My Brother Has Broken My Heart’
That betrayal, she says, came when her brother Moses Farrow, 36, spoke out to PEOPLE this week. Moses, now a family therapist, says Allen never molested Dylan and that Mia poisoned the children against their father.
“My brother has broken my heart. Moses divorced himself from the family a long time ago. I always missed him. I loved him and I kept him in my thoughts. These lies – this betrayal – is unfathomable to me coming from a brother I loved and cherished and grew up with,” she said.
Well that was fast … Charlie Sheen is threatening to destroy Ashton Kutcher — just hours after making peace with his “Two and a Half Men” replacement.
As we reported … Kutcher called out Charlie on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night for belittling him on Twitter, telling him to “shut the f**k up.” Sheen got the point, and made a public apology.
But Sheen tells us … when he did his mea culpa he hadn’t watched the Kimmel interview. When Charlie got around to watching it he immediately blasted Kutcher, tweeting, “Dood, you ever tell me to shut the F*** up, EVER again, and I’ll put you on a hospital food diet for a year.”
Charlie says he has a warning for Ashton … “Mind your tongue, junior.”
Charlie is a loonie!
Charlie Sheen got Ashton Kutcher’s message loud and clear … apologizing to Ashton for riding his ass so hard the last few years — and promising to shut the hell up from here out.
Ashton called Charlie out last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” blasting Charlie for constantly berating him on Twitter after Ashton replaced him on “Two and a Half Men.” For example, just last month, Charlie tweeted Ashton, “Quit barfing on my old brilliant show.”
Ashton turned to the camera and said, “Dude, shut the f**k up! Enough already. It’s three years later and you’re still blowing me up on Twitter. Come on dude, really?”
And Charlie listened … apologizing this morning for taking his bitterness toward “Men” creator Chuck Lorre out on Ashton. He tweeted, “Ashton, message received. so sorry, u sounded like me! well done! my bad I was pissed at other crap & took it out on you. hope u r good xox c.”
And just like that. Beef over.
Haha, Love it! Good for you Ashton!
When “Meet the Fockers” star Teri Polo moves out of a neighborhood … she does not leave the scent of a woman — her landlord says it’s more like a dung heap.
Polo’s former landlord has filed a lawsuit, claiming when Polo moved out of her $7,000 a month rental home in L.A., she left behind a trail of dog feces that stunk up the neighborhood.
Polo is also accused of shocking urine abuse — ruined carpets and noxious odors from pet pee.
The landlord — celebrity lawyer Ed McPherson — also claims she had the nerve to leave a bunch of food in the fridge which was not turned on, and the rancid smell made everyone gag.
Polo — who currently stars in “The Fosters” — is also accused of pilfering brand new blinds.
McPherson wants more than $30,000 to make things right. But to win, the lawyer must prove he’s full of s**t.
Selena Gomez ignored the advice of medical professionals and waltzed out of rehab just 14 days into a 6-week program … over the strenuous objections of the rehab staff …
Sources close to Selena tell us just after New Year’s she checked into a program at The Meadows called DAWN — for alcohol, pot and Rx Ambien — in addition to what her people believe is an unhealthy union with Justin Bieber.
But 2 weeks in, Selena bailed so she could go the Sundance Film Festival for her upcoming movie. She told her people she would return to the rehab facility after Sundance, but when it was over Selena decided she was cured and there was no reason to return.
Problem is … that’s not the way the medical staff at The Meadows sees it … the treatment program is 45-days and Selena bailed four weeks early. We’re told the staff feels it’s essential in any recovery to complete the therapy.
Selena is telling her people … she completed the toughest week, which the facility calls “Survivor’s week” so everything is fine. Thing is … Selena’s not the doctor — she’s the one with the problem.
Ut Oh….We’ll be seeing her in rehab again soon!
Selena Gomez went to rehab last month … and sources connected with the singer say she blames Justin Bieber for her predicament.
We’ve learned Gomez went to The Meadows in Arizona for 2 weeks of treatment.
Sources say Selena went for a combination of problems, including alcohol, pot and prescription Ambien. She’s also addicted to Justin Bieber.
We’re told Selena’s decision was largely based on “that crazy boy” — aka Bieber. Selena blames a lot of her problems on the excesses she was exposed to by being around Bieber and his buddies.
Sources close to Gomez tell us … people in Selena’s camp went ballistic when they found out she was hanging out again with Justin … and saw photos of her joyriding with him on Segways. We’re told that was the final straw — she checked into rehab immediately after that.
Ha, I was kinda joking that she was addicted to Bieber, but I guess she was!
Soap star Crystal Hunt has been hit with FELONY assault with a deadly weapon … for allegedly smashing a glass into another woman’s face during a bar brawl …
The L.A. County D.A. filed the charge … claiming the bar glass is a deadly weapon.

If convicted, Hunt faces up to 4 years in prison.
Don’t worry….There’s always …rehab.
Dylan Farrow’s Feb. 1 open letter to The New York Times detailing sexual molestation she says she suffered at the hands of her father Woody Allen reignited a controversy that has divided their family bitterly for more than 20 years.
Now her brother Moses Farrow is speaking out to defend Allen – and accuse their mother, Mia Farrow, of poisoning the children against their father.
“My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister,” Moses, 36, says. “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.”
A Family Divided
Moses and Dylan, 28, both adopted by Allen and Farrow, and their brother Ronan, 26, were in the center of a 1993 custody battle in which both sides testified about Allen’s affair with Farrow’s adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, whom Allen went on to marry in 1997. Farrow was awarded custody of the couple’s three children. (In total, she has 14 kids from her marriages and solo adoptions.) Allen, 78, who was investigated but not charged with molestation, has for decades denied abusing Dylan, maintaining that Farrow, 69, coached Dylan, an accusation Farrow has always denied.
“Of course Woody did not molest my sister,” says Moses, who is estranged from Farrow and many of his siblings and is close to Allen and Soon-Yi. “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. The day in question, there were six or seven of us in the house. We were all in public rooms and no one, not my father or sister, was off in any private spaces. My mother was conveniently out shopping. 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.”
