Soon Yi Previn

Soon-Yi Previn is at the center of a lawsuit involving her husband Woody Allen. Allen filed a $10 million lawsuit against American Apparel for the unauthorized use of his image, which he claims damaged his reputation.

American Apparel now wants to call Soon Yi to the stand along with her adoptive mother, who is also Allen’s ex lover, Mia Farrow. Allen’s lawyers claim that calling Farrow to the stand is “part of a brutish attempt to smear and intimidate Mr. Allen” and it demonstrates “the unmistakable intent to transform this trial into a spectacle.”

The clothing company
argues that Allen had already ruined his image with his relationship with Soon-Yi, and the various sex scandals he has faced.

Soon Yi Previn was born on October 8, 1970 making her age 38. She was born in South Korea and adopted by Mia Farrow and her then husband Andre Previn when she was eight years old.

In 1980 Mia Farrow began dating Woody Allen, after he marriage to Andre was over. She and Allen Farrow had one child, Ronan Seamus Farrow, and also adopted two children. Allen and Farrow’s relationship ended abruptly when Mia found nude photos of Soon Yi Previn in Allen’s apartment, and discovered that Soon Yi and Woody were having a relationship.

Soon-Yi earned a bachelor’s degree in art from Drew University in 1995 and a master’s degree in special education from Columbia University in 1998. She and Allen married in Venice, Italy, on Dec. 24, 1997. They have two adopted daughters they named after jazz musicians.

    This defense tactic is such a shameful exploitation of Woody’s personal life and further harms him – I’m glad to read that they don’t plan to call her, but the damage has already been done. It’s a shameful tactic.

    I can’t even believe people are defending this man after all these years. What he did only reflects his being in an alternate universe that has its own morals and center: himself. Everyone else, or their feelings, is superfluous. Mia Farrow certainly has her problems, too, and isn’t perfection but to have an affair with your lover’s daughter whom you’ve known since she was 8?? And then marry her?

    Furthermore, Soon Yi is mentally retarded and is submissive to Allen in all ways. She is totally dependent on him. Her childhood permitted her any normal bonding and Allen swooped in and sealed her psychological development. How kind of him.
