Allen's letter came almost a week after his adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow, resurrected claims that she was molested by the filmmaker and actor at her family's Connecticut home in 1992.

"Of course, I did not molest Dylan. I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter’s well-being," Allen wrote.

Allen devoted much of the letter to criticizing Mia Farrow, calling the actress vindictive and spiteful and accusing her of manipulating Dylan Farrow.
