NEW YORK (AP) — Woody Allen called Dylan Farrow‘s allegations of child molestation “untrue and disgraceful,” signaling that he would fight renewed claims dating back to Allen’s tempestuous relationship with actress Mia Farrow in the early 1990s.

The movie director’s publicist Leslee Dartsaid in an email Sunday that Allen has read Dylan Farrow’s open-letter, published online Saturday by The New York Times, claiming she was sexually assaulted when she was 7 by her then adoptive father.

“Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful,” Dart said.
