    Head of the investigation? Because I assume Dr Levanthal is the doctor Dylan referred to in the open letter - the doctor working on Allen's legal team to gaslight her. "Did daddy really do that to you? Really? Repeat it to me again. And again. And again. What did daddy REALLY do, Dylan?" professionals make you question yourself enough that suddenly you're not sure if the sky really is blue.

    In short - I believe Dylan. Everything she said is credible to me. The "cuddling" under the sheets; feeling "something" is wrong but not being sure; hiding in the wardrobes. I believe Dylan, unequivocally.

    Me too. It would take a really wicked person (not a confused child) to continue to slander a man's character repeatedly over the years if she were lying. I think everything she says is the truth (except, like Sluce, I think she is too supportive of her mother given the circumstances.

    When both if your parents fail you so hugely, it can be easier to lean (or attach) more to the less-abusive parent, than it is to escape both parents.

    I don't know if he was on WA's legal team. But if he was and trying to discredit the child, why didn't her mother bring in an expert of her own? And, like NoNoRehab pointed out, why did Mia fail to report WA, and continue her relationship with him? The whole situation is just screwed up and the child was the victim, regardless of what really did or didn't happened.

    John Levanthal was not a member of Allen's legal team. He was a member of the team of experts from the Yale - New Haven Hospital, asked by a CT state attorney and the CT state police to investigate.

    The US justice may not be perfect, but we don't allow the people being investigated to hire the team investigating them. They can hire a team to defend them, but the state investigation is not conducted by people hired by the suspect.

    I'm cosigning this.

    What she wrote is powerful. She said enough to paint a picture but wasn't graphic enough to prevent people from reading. Calling people out by name is brilliant.

    It's great they all love their mother. If she isn't stupid or completely crazy, I'll give her a pass. Otherwise, her inability to protect so many of her chilfren from this monster is disturbing.

    If I ever had a single doubt about WA (I didn't) it would have evaporated the moment I saw the truly disturbing picture of him with his arms around the girls he adopted with Soon Yi. Their body language and facial expressions were enough to turn my stomach.

    I think it's very telling that in every photo where Woody is holding her, Dylan looks uncomfortable.

    Ugh. Creepy asshole. I have always hated this guy. Even as a kid I thought he was weird. Poor Dylan.

    I don't know how I missed this! Eh, I'm still sick with this nasty month-long cold, I'll let that be my excuse. Anyway, bumped the "Woody's A Creep" thread with this news, but it deserves its own thread!

    I've been unable to get those pictures out of my memory.

    I've seen this several times. One friend even leaned more to her (faux-kindly) molester because her mother is such an astonishingly sick, manipulative, cruel sociopath. She will always struggle with that.

    I love that Dylan called out celebs by name. Especially: fuck you, Cate Blanchett. I was surprised and disappointed in her for working with Allen.

    Poor Dylan. It has taken great courage to come out like this especially about a world famous director. I hope she is healing and others can be inspired by her story.

    I hope all offenders take note: did you forget little girls grow up? Do you think they would actually forget? Perverted creep.

    I don't know the timeline but she did say in her piece that she was accused of making it up due to the divorce so I'm not sure why the mother wasn't protecting her unless you mean because of the visitation, after the divorce?

    and sometimes it takes going through a lot of therapy + that parents death to attach the blame to them.
    Sorry you went through all of that Kat.
