Is Woody Allen Still Married to Soon-Yi Previn?
Director Woody Allen is known for his cinematic success, creating critically-acclaimed masterpieces starring A-list celebrities. His personal life often overshadows his professional success: Allen’s adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, has made allegations of sexual abuse. Adding to his notoriety is that Allen left his long-time partner Mia Farrow for her much-younger adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. The two married, but are they still together?
Woody Allen’s marriage to Soon-Yi Previn
It certainly seems as though Allen and Previn have successfully weathered the scandal of storms they’ve experienced over the years. Married on December 22, 1997, the pair recently celebrated their 21-year anniversary which is a milestone for any couple, especially celebrity match-ups which seldom pass the test of time.
Soon-Yi Previn defends her marriage
Previn recently opened up to Rolling Stone about the relationship she’s shared with her much-older partner, in support of her life-long partnership with Allen. In the piece, she confirmed the two are still legally hitched and happily married for more than 20 years now despite suffering some setbacks they’ve experienced along the way.
The Rolling Stone recalled a 1992 interview with Newsweek when Previn made the statement: “I’m not a retarded little underage flower who was raped, molested and spoiled by some evil stepfather — not by a long shot.” More recently, in the shadow of the #MeToo movement, their pairing was brought back into the spotlight Dylan’s allegations against Allen.
Soon-Yi Previn’s relationship with Mia Farrow
In this rare and candid interview, Previn described the relationship with her estranged mom, Mia, as being abusive and claims that she wasn’t very maternal. Conversely, mother Mia insists Allen was sexually-sketchy with their daughter Dylan — an accusation Previn vehemently denies. Previn claims Mia pressured Dylan into falsely coming forward and was taking advantage of the #metoo movement to gain a momentary slot in a fading spotlight.
Does Woody Allen have children with Soon-Yi Previn?
In addition to adopting Dylan, Allen and Mia also rescued two-year-old Moses, an orphan from Korea living with Cerebral Palsy. Later, Allen and Mia went on to conceive Satchel O’Sullivan “Ronan” Farrow into the world. But what about Allen and Previn? Do they have any children from their two-decades of marriage?
Allen and Previn chose the adoption route and have two kids together: daughters Bechet Dumaine and Manzie Tio. Little is known about these sisters from another mister as they’ve been raised almost exclusively out of the spotlight, away from the peering eyes of the press and public.
