Woody Allen is fighting back at allegations by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, who in an open letter in the New York Times on Saturday accused the filmmaker of sexually assaulting her when she was 7 years old.

Farrow claimed the alleged abused “haunted me as I grew up,” and that she became “terrified of being touched by men.”

Allen, who has denied wrongdoing in the decades since, issued a statement on Sunday — via his rep — that reads, “Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful.”

His rep noted, “He will be responding very soon.”‘

No charges were ever filed against Allen, and an investigation was conducted back then by court-appointed experts, who didn’t find any evidence of molestation.
