For decades, Woody Allen’s wife Soon-Yi Previn has stayed silent about their unconventional marriage.
At 21 years old, Previn began a relationship with the then 57-year-old Allen behind her adoptive mother’s back. The relationship came to light when Farrow discovered naked Polaroids of Previn in Allen’s home in early 1992.
Speaking to writer Daphne Merkin, who has been a friend of Allen’s for over four decades, Previn, who was adopted by Farrow in South Korea in 1978, detailed her relationship with her mother.
In the interview, the now 47-year-old claimed her adoptive mother once asked to film her speaking about her early childhood. She asked Previn to speak about her birth mother, claiming she was a prostitute who beat her, but Previn had no recollection of the information Farrow was telling her.
