(Newser) – The adopted son of Woody Allen says the molestation allegations against the Hollywood icon are bogus, reports the Guardian. Moses Farrow writes in a lengthy blog post that Allen did not molest Dylan Farrow, his adopted daughter. "(G)iven the incredibly inaccurate and misleading attacks on my father, Woody Allen, I feel that I can no longer stay silent as he continues to be condemned for a crime he did not commit," writes Farrow. He disputes Dylan Farrow's claim, made in 2014, that Allen molested her in 1992, when she was 7. Moses Farrow was also home the day of the alleged attack, and he challenges her story, including the layout of the attic where the attack allegedly took place, per BuzzFeed.

“Dylan was alone with Woody in his apartment countless times over the years without a hint of impropriety, yet some would have you believe that at the age of 56, he suddenly decided to become a child molester in a house full of hostile people ordered to watch him like a hawk," writes Moses Farrow, who has previously declared Woody Allen to be innocent. As he has also done previously, Moses Farrow accused Mia Farrow, his adopted mother, of physical abuse and brainwashing. After his post, Dylan Farrow issued a response. “As I said when he last made these claims, this is an attempt to deflect from a credible allegation made by an adult woman, by trying to impugn my mother who has only ever been supportive of me and my siblings," she wrote. She added that Moses' claims are "easily disproven" and that "my brother is a troubled person.” (Read more Woody Allen stories.)
