ALLEN `WAS NEVER A FATHER' TO HIS YOUNG PARAMOUR

Woody Allen insists people have the wrong idea about his relationship with the adopted daughter of former love interest Mia Farrow.

"I was never for one scintilla of a second a father to her in any remote way. She was an older person - much, much older than the kids," Allen said of Soon-Yi Previn. His comments appear in the October issue of Esquire magazine.Allen, 58, said he remains involved with the 24-year-old Previn. She was 21 in 1992 when her mother discovered she was sleeping with Allen.

Farrow then accused Allen of molesting another adopted child, Dylan. Although officials dismissed the allegation, Allen is not allowed to see Dylan or a third adopted child, Moses. He can only have six hours a week of supervised visits with his 7-year-old biological son, Satchel.
