WATCH: Ronan Farrow Defends Sister Dylan, Family Divided By Her Claims Against Woody Allen

Ronan Farrow has become the latest family member to weigh in on the Farrow-Allen family scandal.

The activist and TV presenter has spoken publicly to defend the claims of his sister Dylan that she was assaulted by her adoptive father Woody Allen when she was a child.

The director has reacted to the recent claims, made in an open letter by Dylan in the New York Times, calling them "untrue and disgraceful".

It has not been a quiet year for Ronan, with claims only a few months ago that he was actually the son of Frank Sinatra, Mia Farrow's former husband, and not Woody Allen as was previously thought.
