FARROW DIVIDE Simon, Allen (inset)
Carly Simon has doled out some long-overdue punishment to Woody Allen, who ended his 12-year relationship with Mia Farrow by having an affair with her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.
Simon, a close friend of Farrow's who frequently defended her in the press during the nasty custody battle that ensued, released a new album last week, Into White. Among the songs on it is a remake of her 1992 ballad "Love of My Life," whose first stanza contains the lines, "I love lilacs and avocados / Ukuleles and fireworks / And Woody Allen."
That song, which originally appeared on the soundtrack of Nora Ephron's This Is My Life, was recorded in August 1991—one year before the revelations about Allen and Previn's affair (and the subsequent allegation by Farrow that Allen had molested their adopted daughter, Dylan, then 7).
The new version of the song substitutes Farrow's name for Allen's—making it perfectly clear whose side Simon is on. Good thing their names have the same number of syllables.
A rep for Farrow did not answer a request for comment.
