The year 2013-14 was no less fraught with celebrity scandals hovering around the Tinseltown and while many may have been fabricated, they nevertheless did not cease to amuse us with their innate thrill and gripping headlines they made. From being dissipated of endorsement deals and accusing a half-sister to showering of apologies and continuing saga of an alleged molestation case by a foster father, the list seems endless and formidable enough to change our notions about these Hollywood celebs.

Woody Allen Molestation Controversy:
Revered director Woody Allen who mesmerized us with his impeccable films like Crimes and Misdemeanors, Manhattan, Love and Death, Midnight in Paris among others could not stave off scandals from embezzling and blemishing his celebrity stature either. Since the time the director’s adopted and estranged daughter stepped into the scenario to allegedly blame her father for molesting her as a child, the hullabaloo surrounding the scandal has been hovering over the glitz and glamour world.
The daughter, Dylan Farrow quipped, “For 20 years, I have never wavered in describing what he did to me. I will carry the memories of surviving these experiences for the rest of my life.”The latest development in this controversy was witnessed when the director’s bronze statue in Oveido, Spain was vandalized by some Spanish locals blaming Allen of pedophilic activities. The protestation went to the extent of pasting posters in front of the statue and covering the head with a garbage bag which had to be brought down by the city officials. Whether Dylan Farrow’s accusations of her dad are to be believed or whether we should free our minds of any such allegations put against our respected director considering them a part and parcel of notorious celebrity life is something only time can tell.
