Rosie O'donnell - Rosie O'donnell Fully Believes Mia Farrow's Daughter In Woody Allen Abuse Allegations

Subscribe to Rosie ODonnell alerts

Comedienne ROSIE O'DONNELL has spoken out in support of Mia Farrow's daughter Dylan after she renewed allegations of molestation against her estranged father Woody Allen.

Dylan Farrow opened up for the first time about the shocking accusations she made during her parents' custody battle back in 1992, suggesting the filmmaker had sexually abused her when she was seven, in a New York Times blog piece published last weekend (01Feb14).

Actress Mia tweeted her support for her adopted child after the column and her claims were picked up by major news outlets, and now O'Donnell, who was also a victim of child molestation, has waded into the controversy, insisting she firmly believes everything Dylan has said.

Returning to her former U.S. talk show The View for the first time in seven years on Friday (07Feb14), she said, "I totally believe her (Dylan)... I'm very good friends with Mia Farrow, like, very close friends. I've seen her as a mother, she's the best mother I've ever seen..."

O'Donnell also urged Woody Allen's supporters to do their research on the custody case, which sparked the allegations, before siding with the filmmaker. adding, "If you read the custody decision by the prosecutor, you will understand that there was cause to prosecute, but they thought that it would be too traumatic for the seven-year-old child, and he (Allen) was not given any custody of those children.

"I firmly believe Dylan, and I believe Mia."

Dylan's original allegations were investigated after they surfaced in 1992, but no charges were ever filed.

Allen's representatives have maintained there is no truth to the revived claims and the director is now preparing to address Dylan's accusations in his own open letter in the New York Times.

Earlier this week (beg03Feb14), Dylan's brother Moses, who publicly supported Dylan as a teenager when the molestation claims were first made public, attacked his estranged mum and accused her of poisoning her kids' minds against Allen.
