Controversial HBO documentary 'Allen v. Farrow' revealed how people are divided over the ongoing battle between Mia Farrow and filmmaker Woody Allen. Amid people taking sides, an incident of Farrow's late daughter Tam being edited out of a cherished family photo has come to light.

According to a report in Page Six, Farrow had posted a 'Throwback Thursday' image on her Twitter account in 2016. In what appears to be a 25-year-old picture, we can see Farrow's son Ronan shaking hands with Hillary Clinton, while daughter Dylan smiles at the former presidential candidate.

The caption shared with the picture read, "When Dylan and @RonanFarrow met Hillary Clinton." However, a supporter of Allen has now revealed that the picture had originally featured Tam, Mia’s disabled Vietnamese daughter who died in 2000. In the original photo, she is pictured standing between Clinton and Farrow. However, in the snap that was shared on Twitter, she seems to have been removed digitally.

A source also revealed, "To me, it’s a sick thing to do." When you inspect the image closer, you can discern an outline of Tam's face and her dress. At the time of Tam's death in 2000, Mia's spokesperson in a statement said, "Mia’s daughter died from heart failure over the weekend. She had a weak heart."

Who was Tam Farrow?

However, in a tell-all blog post about many of the family feuds, tragedies and scandals, Mia's son Moses wrote, "In fact, Tam struggled with depression for much of her life, a situation exacerbated by my mother refusing to get her help, insisting that Tam was just ‘moody.’ One afternoon in 2000, after one final fight with Mia, which ended with my mother leaving the house, Tam committed suicide by overdosing on pills."

He also explained his allegation further by stating, "My mother would tell others that the drug overdose was accidental, saying that Tam, who was blind, didn’t know which pills she was taking. But Tam had both an ironclad memory and sense of spatial recognition. And, of course, blindness didn’t impair her ability to count.”

After Moses' blog was released, Ronan took to Twitter in 2018 to support his mother and wrote, "Not worth saying much to dignify the repeated campaign to discredit my sister [Dylan, who has accused Allen of molesting her], often by attacking our mother." He then added, "This is all I’ll offer: My mother did an extraordinary job raising us, and none of my siblings with whom I’ve spoken ever witnessed anything but love and care from a single mom who went through hell to keep her kids safe.”

After multiple allegations made by both Allen and Farrow - Allen about Mia abusing her children and Mia about Dylan being abused by Allen -- as of now, no charges have been filed.
