Vanity Fair Story Rekindles Woody-Mia Battle
NEW YORK - The cease-fire between Woody Allen and Mia Farrow ended yesterday as both sides fired new blasts at each other over an upcoming national magazine story that discusses in detail allegations that Allen sexually abused the couple's daughter.
Attorneys for Allen charged that Farrow was responsible for Vanity Fair's cover story alleging that Allen abused the couple's 7-year-old adopted daughter Dylan. They threatened to file a libel suit against Vanity Fair. A spokesman for Farrow denied that she had anything to do with the article.
The article, written by contributing editor Maureen Orth for the magazine's November issue, describes Allen as "completely obsessed" with Dylan Farrow and says that Allen, wearing only his underwear, would frequently take Dylan to bed with him and "entwine his body around hers."
Vanity Fair said that it was standing by the story.
