New York (AP) -- A representative for Woody Allen says the director calls Dylan Farrow's allegations of child molestation "untrue and disgraceful."

Publicist Leslee Dart said in an email Sunday that Allen has read Farrow's open-letter, published online by The New York Times, claiming she was sexually assaulted by her then adoptive father as a 7-year-old.

Dart also said Allen will be responding soon.

Farrow claimed that in 1992 at the family's Connecticut home, Allen led her to a "dim, closet-like attic" and "then he sexually assaulted me." Farrow didn't specify Allen's actions, but described other abusive behavior.

Connecticut prosecutors investigated the allegations in 1993 but did not charge Allen. The 78-year-old director has long maintained his innocence.
