In a blistering tweet, Ronan Farrow attacked his estranged father, Woody Allen, as a child molester after the Golden Globe Awards gave the director a lifetime achievement award. Actress Diane Keaton, Allen’s former girlfriend, announced that Allen, who did not attend the awards ceremony in Los Angeles, would receive the Cecil B. DeMille award for his many films. Farrow then tweeted: “Missed the Woody Allen tribute—did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?” Ronan, 26—who may actually be the biological son of Frank Sinatra, according to mother Mia Farrow—was referring to adoptive sister Dylan’s public allegation that Allen molested her when she was just 7 years old. Allen, who denies the allegation, later went on to marry another of Farrow’s adopted daughters, Soon-Yi.
