From the very beginning, Previn told Vulture that her relationship with Farrow seemed strained.
In this May 15, 2010 file photo, filmmaker Woody Allen, right, and Soon-Yi Previn arrive for the premiere of "Another Year", at the 63rd global film festival in Cannes, southern France.
"Woody Allen and his allies [plant] stories that attack and vilify my mother to deflect from my sister's credible allegation of abuse", said Farrow in a statement.
In her first extended comments on the fraught and tangled history between director Woody Allen and the Farrow family, Soon-Yi Previn described her mother, Mia Farrow, as a demeaning and sometimes violent figure who exploded upon learning of her relationship with Allen - a man whom Farrow had worked with and dated for years.
"I was never interested in writing a Mommie Dearest, getting even with Mia - none of that", Previn said.
Previn said while she does have a "little learning disability", which makes spelling hard, Farrow would write words on her arms to get her to remember them, and hold her upside down for periods of time because "she thought that blood going to my head would make me smarter or something". "And a whole new generation is hearing about it when they shouldn't".
Previn, who is famously private, told the magazine she wanted to speak out now because accusations that Allen had sexually abused Dylan when she was a child had resurfaced, claims that Allen denies. "I am a pariah", Merkin quotes the director as saying during a lunch. "'People think that I was Soon-Yi's father, that I raped and married my underaged, retarded daughter'". Mia and Allen separated, and Allen married her daughter Previn in 1997.
But Previn says Dylan and Mia Farrow are frauds in a new op-ed published by Vulture.
In the article, Previn also spoke at length about the tumultuous relationship with her mother portraying them as "oil and water". The author even suggested that my mother bribed me to lie with a doll that was not manufactured until years later. She says she can't think of a single pleasant memory of her mother.
She details being called stupid by her mother, being treated as a domestic, and practically raising her siblings. The couple began their sexual relationship when she was 22 and he was still together with Mia. At all turns, she rejects the idea that she was groomed, the piece describing her account of dates with Allen on Knicks games and to Bergman movies as, eerily enough, "a scene straight out of a Woody Allen movie". "I thought he must be the same way".
Previn, who is originally from South Korea, was adopted by Farrow at the age of 6.
Dylan also noted that the NY magazine piece's author, Daphne Merkin, calls herself a longtime friend of Allen's.
In an interview with NY magazine, she discusses falling in love with her mother's husband at the age of 21 and confronts accusations that Allen molested her adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. "As a journalist, I'm shocked by the lack of care for the facts, the refusal to include eyewitness testimony that would contradict falsehoods in this pieces, and the failre to print my sister's responses", Ronan added. Previn reveals that her mother was abusive, a story corroborated by her brother Moses. She also recounts psychological abuse and both her parents' "bone-chilling tempers". Dylan took to Twitter to respond to the article, reasserting her story that she was abused by Allen. Others, like longtime friend, ex, and co-star Diane Keaton, have stood by Allen.
CBS News reached out to Mia Farrow for comment, but we have not heard back.
