Happy Friday, y’all! I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad this week is almost over! I’ve been traveling and got caught up in a big Midwest snowstorm. So, I’ve been freezing my ass off, but it’s almost over! That has me in the mood to celebrate with a WTF? moment in pop culture. Today’s moment takes us to 1992 when one of the creepiest couples of all time got together:Yep, I’m talking about Woody Allen and his adopted daughter/wife, Soon-Yi Previn. In 1992, Allen and longtime partner Mia Farrow’s relationship was falling apart. In the midst of a bitter custody battle over the couple’s children, 56-year-old Allen confessed to Farrow that he was in love with 21-year-old Previn. Farrow even found nude pictures of Previn that Allen had taken in their apartment.
After Allen and Farrow’s split, Allen and Previn began dating in earnest and married in 1997. They now have two children. Farrow moved on and has since found her niche as a philanthropist and activist, working as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and starting a project to bring awareness to the conflict in Darfur. This year, Time named her one of the most influential people in the world.
Have a good weekend!
