Woody Allen Ex Stacey Nelkin: Dylan Farrow Sex Abuse Allegations Might Be Publicity Stunt for Ronan’s TV Show

Truth rating: 10

(HuffPost Live)

Stacey Nelkin, who as a teenager in the 1970s dated Woody Allen, says that she believes his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow’s allegations of sexual abuse are false, and suggests that it’s all a publicity stunt for her brother Ronan’s upcoming MSNBC show.


She explained on HuffPost Live, “I, myself, was a little bit suspicious of the timing of this, with the article in Vanity Fair and this letter coming out. It just seems like maybe a publicity ploy for Ronan’s new MSNBC TV show.”

Not that Nelkin, who was 17 when she dated a 41-year-old Allen, believes Dylan is lying, exactly.

“I do believe that Dylan believes that this actually happened to her, so she’s clearly in a lot of pain and very troubled about it,” she said. “But I chose to speak out because I was very disturbed by this, and I’ve known Woody for a really long time. Before, during this and after all of these accusations.”

She added, “I do not believe that this happened, and I do believe that she made this up.”

Nelkin had lots more to say.
