Soon-Yi & Woody Allen Began A Romantic Relationship In 1991
Soon-Yi and husband Woody Allen’s relationship was fraught with controversy from the very beginning. Woody was Soon-Yi’s mother’s longtime boyfriend, and the two began seeing each other behind Mia’s back when Soon-Yi was 21. The relationship went public in 1992 when Mia found nude photos of Soon-Yi in Woody’s apartment and promptly broke up with him after he confessed to having a sexual relationship with her daughter.
While Soon-Yi and Woody’s relationship became tabloid fodder for their father-daughter dynamic, Soon-Yi maintains that Woody was never in her life as a father figure, despite the fact that he adopted two of her siblings (including Dylan Farrow) during his relationship with Mia and fathered her younger brother, journalist Ronan Farrow, during that time. They got married in 1997 and adopted two children together: daughters Bechet Allen, now 22 and Manzie Allen, now 21.
