MIA Farrow has recalled finding her ex Woody Allen's "pornographic pics" of his adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn in a bombshell new documentary.
The filmmaker's ex revealed the moment she discovered her then-boyfriend's relationship with Soon-Yi Previn – her adopted daughter – in the HBO documentary titled Allen v Farrow.
The four-part docuseries, which aired Sunday at 9pm ET, claims Allen sexually assaulted his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was seven – which he has vehemently denied.
The acclaimed director was never arrested or prosecuted in the decades-old case, after an investigation by state police in Connecticut.
Allen, 85, and Previn, 50, released a statement slamming the sex abuse allegations as a "hatchet job" following the docuseries' release.
In the documentary, Mia, 76, revealed she was in Allen's Manhattan apartment on a day she wasn't working when she made the shocking discovery.
"So, I took one of the kids over after we left a coat over there, and there by the side of the phone, to the right of the phone, was his stack of Polaroid pictures, of pornographic pictures of a woman, a girl," Mia said in the documentary, according to HollywoodLife.com.
She continued: "And I picked them up and I realized all of them were of Soon-Yi. It was my own child."
Mia also admitted she "struggled to breathe" when she discovered the "raunchy pictures" of her adopted daughter, who was a first-year college student at the time.
"I remember getting my son, trying to put his coat on, trying to do the buttons. I took the photos and I put them in my pocket and I was leaving and then I just realized that I don’t even think I could push the elevator button," she explained.
"I was just like shaking. And I took my child home and I locked the door."
Mia adopted a total of seven children, with one being Previn, who went on to marry Allen in 1997.
Allen married Previn after her adoptive mother, actress Mia, split from the director after 12 years of dating.
Mia also recalled what she said when she confronted Previn about the nude photos.
She explained in the documentary: "Soon-Yi was home and I remember saying: 'I found the pictures.' And she said: 'What pictures?'… and I said: 'The pictures Woody took.'"
"And she started crying and I started crying and I’m like: 'No, no, it’s not your fault,'" she added, noting that Previn was "beside herself."
Following their chat, Mia recalled Allen admitting to his "mistake" as they talked for approximately "four hours."
He also admitted that he was "in love with Previn," Mia said.
When Mia and Allen first began their relationship, Previn was 11-years old.
Allen and his adopted daughter began a romantic relationship when she was 21 — when the director was 57 and still in a relationship with Farrow.
The documentary goes "behind decades of sensational headlines to reveal the private story of one of Hollywood's most notorious and public scandals," according to a statement from HBO.
Meanwhile, Allen and Previn's Sunday statement, released to The Hollywood Reporter, read: "These documentarians had no interest in the truth. Instead, they spent years surreptitiously collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers to put together a hatchet job riddled with falsehoods.
"As has been known for decades, these allegations are categorically false.
"Multiple agencies investigated them at the time and found that, whatever Dylan Farrow may have been led to believe, absolutely no abuse had ever taken place.
"It is sadly unsurprising that the network to air this is HBO – which has a standing production deal and business relationship with Ronan Farrow.
"While this shoddy hit piece may gain attention, it does not change the facts."
Allen has previously condemned the allegations "an unconscionable and gruesomely damaging manipulation of innocent children for vindictive and self-serving motives."
In the four-part US series by HBO, Dylan Farrow recalled the moment that Woody Allen allegedly "touched her private parts" when she was seven.
Dylan, now aged 35, has previously written that Allen one day led her to an attic at their house when she was seven years old.
She alleged: "He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me."
