Mia Farrow is speaking out about the deaths of three of her fourteen children after “vicious rumours” resurfaced online about her abusing them.
In a statement posted to Twitter this week, the 76-year-old Hollywood star clarified how Tam Farrow, Thaddeus Farrow and Lark Previn, who were each adopted, passed away.
“Few families are perfect, and any parent who has suffered the loss of a child knows that pain is ceaseless,” she writes.
“However, some vicious rumours based on untruths have appeared online concerning the lives of three of my children. To honour their memory, their children and every family that has dealt with the death of a child, I am making this post,” Mia continues.
“My beloved daughter Tam, passed away at seventeen from an accidental prescription overdose related to the agonising migraines she suffered, and her heart ailment.”
Mia explains that Lark’s death in 2008 was “from complications of HIV/AIDS which she contracted from a previous partner.”
And her “courageous son Thaddeus” who was 29 years old and happily living with his partner when the “relationship abruptly ended, he took his own life.”

“Any other speculation about their deaths is to dishonour their lives and the lives of their children and loved ones,” Mia adds.
“I am grateful to be the mother of fourteen children who have blessed me with sixteen grandchildren. Although we have known sorrow, our lives today are full of love and joy.”
Mia’s family and her estranged husband, Woody Allen, are back in the spotlight following the release of the HBO docuseries Allen V. Farrow.
The program details the sexual abuse allegations against Allen, made by his (and Mia’s) adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. It also features interviews with friends and family members.
Allen and his wife, Soon-Yi Previn – who is also Mia’s adopted daughter – did not take part in the series, but did release a statement after its release calling the documentary a “hachet job riddle with falsehoods.”
