Woody Allen in new sex claim

NEW YORK (Reuter) - A lawyer for the actress Mia Farrow dropped a bombshell in court yesterday, charging that Ms Farrow's ex-lover Woody Allen had sex with Ms Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, in front of her seven-year-old sister, who is at the centre of their child custody dispute.

The allegation came during a two-hour Manhattan Supreme Court hearing on Allen's request to visit the younger adopted daughter, Dylan. Connecticut state police are already investigating allegations that Allen sexually molested Dylan. He has strongly denied any misconduct.

Allen also wants the right to see his adopted son Moses, 14, and biological son, Satchel, 5. After the hearing, he said the allegation was 'too insane to think about it. You must be joking'.
