Allen and Previn. (Steve Granitz/WireImage)
Ronan, who was once known by his first name Satchel, severed contact with Allen, now 76, in the wake of his parents' split — after Farrow discovered nude photos of Previn, then 21, taken inside Allen's New York City duplex. Soon after, the filmmaker admitted to the relationship with Previn, who was 10 when he and Farrow began dating in 1980, and Farrow used that as leverage to get sole custody of her biological son with the director. Two decades later, Allen and Previn are married and have two daughters, Bechet and Manzie Tio, who they adopted as babies in 1999 and 2000 respectively.
Last year, Ronan opened up about his family drama to Life magazine. Of Allen, he said, "He's my father married to my sister. That makes me his son and his brother-in-law. That is such a moral transgression. I cannot see him. I cannot have a relationship with my father and be morally consistent. I lived with all these adopted children, so they are my family. To say Soon-Yi was not my sister is an insult to all adopted children."
