They have worked together in 13 of his movies.

Farrow and her ex-husband had adopted Soon Yi from Korea in 1977. She was an abandoned child.

In 1992, Farrow found nude photographs of her daughter in Woody's home. 

This was when the bizarre relationship was revealed. 

He claims that he was never a father or a stepfather to her, and they rarely spoke to each other before starting their romantic relationship. 

On  August  17, 1992, he issued a statement saying he is in love with her, and they got married on December 23, 1997

The couple has two children, Manzie Tio Allen and Bechet Dumaine Allen, both daughters. 

The family now lives in Carnegie Hill, Manhattan.

Allegation for sexual abuse 

He was accused of sexually abusing Dylan, Farrow's daughter. 

On August 4, 1992, he visited the children at her ex-partners' home, and the babysitter claimed she saw him lying on Dylan's lap, and Dylan too said he touched her private parts. 

Woody strongly denied this allegation and said he was just framed. 

After a six-month investigation, it was concluded that Dylan was not sexually abused. 

In October 1993, the case was closed after a 14-month-long investigation, which proved him innocent because of less evidence.

No shame and regret on making a relationship with daughter? 

Woody and his relationship with his stepdaughter Soon-Yi Previn have shocked the world. They are now happily married and living a peaceful life. 

A decade back their relationship made a whole new controversy. Woody was in a relationship with Mia Farrow who had an adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn

Woody met Soon when she was 11 years old and by the time Soon reached 21, Woody and she started dating. Woody was also in a relationship with Mia at that time. 

Mia and her other adopted children started doubting Soon dating someone because she started dressing in a sexier way. 

Later Mia found nudes of her daughter Soon in Woody’s phone which shook her whole world. According to her, those nudes were too nasty to be seen. 

When Mia asked Soon about her affair she denied it. But Woody agreed and admitted his mistake. He cried in front of Mia and asked her to marry him. 

But Woody and Soon had other plans so in 1992 they accepted their relationship and came out publicly. Soon claimed that she was physically and sexually attracted to Woody that’s why she got into a relationship with him. 

The whole world backlashed Woody for dating Soon despite being a father figure to her. But Woody claimed that he had never been a father figure to Soon in his entire life. 

He never accepted her as his daughter nor had he ever been there with her while she was dating Mia so he has no regret about making Soon his wife.
