The bitter rift in the Mia Farrow-Woody Allen family is growing wider by the day.

Following Dylan Farrow's open letter on Saturday accusing the director of sexual abuse 20 years ago, Moses Farrow is now defending his father.

"My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister," Moses tells People in the magazine's new issue. "And I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi."

Moses, 36, and Dylan, 28, both adopted by Allen and Farrow, and their brother Ronan, 26, were in the center of a 1993 custody battle in which both sides testified about Allen's affair with Farrow's adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn.

Ronan has tweeted his support for his sister.

Allen, 78, who was investigated but not charged with molestation, has for decades denied abusing Dylan, maintaining that Farrow, 69, coached Dylan. Farrow has denied that.

On Tuesday, Allen's lawyer spoke on behalf of Allen, saying the director is "saddened" by it all being brought up again, again saying that Farrow's anger is the motivation behind it all.

"Of course Woody did not molest my sister," says Moses, who is estranged from Farrow and many of his siblings, according to People. "She loved him and looked forward to seeing him when he would visit. She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him."

Dylan stands by her story, telling People, "My memories are the truth and they are mine and I will live with that for the rest of my life."
