Following Dylan Farrow's recent open letter, alleging that Woody Allen sexually assaulted her as a little girl, ET caught up with Allen's ex Stacey Nelkin, who gave her thoughts on whether there's any truth to the allegations.
"I don't know," Nelkin admitted. "I do not think so, but I was not there in the room. I can't say for sure because I wasn't there."
Stacey Nelkin began dating Woody Allen in the '70s when she was 17 and he was 41.
Nelkin neither confirms nor denies whether she had sex with Allen when she was 17, saying, "It doesn't matter. We had a romantic relationship. Statute of limitations are over. My mother knew I was dating him. I had parental consent." Nelkin went on to emphasize that her relationship with Allen was "completely consensual."
In Dylan's letter posted on The New York Times' website, she provides a first-person account of what she claims happened to her in 1992.
"Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic," wrote Dylan. It is there that she claims the sexual assault took place.
The original sexual assault claims in 1992 prompted a six-month investigation that turned up no credible evidence and ended without Woody being charged for a crime. Prior to the allegations, Woody made headlines for beginning a relationship with Mia Farrow's 19-year-old adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn -- now his wife of 13 years.
