Daughter accuses Farrow of assault
Saturday 22 August 1992
According to New York Newsday, Soon-Yi Previn, 21, said the outbursts began in January when Farrow discovered nude pictures of Soon-Yi in Allen's apartment. Soon-Yi told friends she fled from her mother's apartment because Farrow had punched her, hit her with a chair, ripped her clothing and repeatedly yelled at her in the middle of the night, the newspaper added.
John Springer, Miss Farrow's spokesman, said he was unaware of any outbursts. 'Mia and Soon- Yi had a long conversation Wednesday night,' he said. 'They said they loved each other, and Mia told Soon-Yi she would always be her daughter.'
Allen, 56, said earlier this week that he is in love with Soon-Yi, the eldest of Farrow's 11 children. Last week, Allen filed a lawsuit to gain custody of the three children he shares with Farrow. A hearing in the case is set for next Tuesday. Two of the children are adopted, and one is his biological child. Soon-Yi was adopted by Farrow and her second husband, the conductor Andre Previn.
The Daily News reported yesterday that Soon-Yi visited Allen's Manhattan apartment on Thursday night. The two tried to go to dinner in separate cars, but returned home when Allen saw photographers tailing his car.
Days after Allen filed the lawsuit, Connecticut state police confirmed he was being investigated, apparently over allegations that he sexually abused his seven-year- old adopted daughter, Dylan.
Allen has denied molesting the girl and said he had taken a lie detector test proving his innocence. Experts say that Allen's acknowledged love affair with the daughter of his ex-lover is a kind of emotional incest that can tear a family apart and leave lasting scars.
Daisy Previn, 17, said she and her 10 brothers and sisters regarded Allen as a father during his 12-year relationship with Farrow. Her 14-year-old brother, Moses, also named in the lawsuit, agreed. 'I'm very upset about what he did,' he said. 'He was a 12-year boyfriend to my mom, and all of a sudden he started going out with my sister.'
