Woody Allen's Response to Sex Abuse Claim May Be Published

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Woody Allen has asked The New York Times for the opportunity to respond to his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow's open letter recently published on the newspaper's website, in which she claimed he sexually abused her.

In a post published Wednesday on the website, New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan writes Allen has issued the request, and that the newspaper agreed to let the filmmaker submit an op-ed piece. However, it's noted, "It’s not certain that The Times will publish the piece," since it is subject to editing.

In her open letter, Farrow renewed a two-decade-old accusation that he molested her in 1992, when she was 7 years old. Allen has denied the allegation, and has never been charged in the matter.

Farrow's brother, Moses, told People magazine in an interview published Wednesday that "of course" Allen did not sexually abuse his sister.

Dylan and Moses were both adopted by Allen and his former partner, Mia Farrow, who has supported Dylan Farrow following the publication of her letter.
