Dylan Farrow reignited controversy when she penned an open letter to the New York Times and boldly accused her father Woody Allen of molesting her more than 20 years ago.

Now, her brother Moses Farrow is coming forward to accuse their mother Mia Farrow of creating the web of lies.

"My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister," Allen’s adopted son Moses told PEOPLE, in a new interview. "And I hated him for her for years."

Looking back, Moses now believes his mother was looking for revenge after learning of Allen's affair with Farrow's adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, whom Allen went on to marry in 1997.

“I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi,” he said.

After the split, Allen lost custody and even visitation after Mia took her sexual abuse allegations to authorities in 1992. The Hollywood director has never been prosecuted for sexually abusing his daughter and has always maintained his innocence.

“Woody did not molest my sister," Moses said.

“The day in question, there were six or seven of us in the house. We were all in public rooms and no one, not my father or sister, was off in any private spaces. My mother was conveniently out shopping.

“I don’t know if my sister really believes she was molested or is trying to please her mother. Pleasing my mother was very powerful motivation because to be on her wrong side was horrible,” Moses added.

Farrow, who declined to respond to Moses's accusations, tweeted: "I love my daughter. I will always protect her. A lot of ugliness is going to be aimed at me. But this is not about me, it's about her truth."

Allen has no plans to take anyone to court over the renewed accusations but is devastated by his daughter’s open letter.

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

Dylan insists she is telling the truth and was never coached by her mother; it’s unclear if Dylan is planning any legal action against her father.
