Mia Farrow is speaking on the deaths of her three late children Tam, Lark and Thaddeus following “vicious rumors” circulating regarding their deaths.
Farrow, 76, revealed a long statement on Twitter to address “vicious rumors” she said have been circulating recently about their deaths.
“As a mother of fourteen children, my family means everything to me,” Farrow began. “While I chose a career that placed me in the public arena, most of my children have elected to live very private lives.”
Farrow revealed how she is “selective” in what she shares to social media in an effort to respect her children but after “vicious rumors based in untruths” she said have “appeared online” concerning her three late adoptive children, she decided to speak out.
“My beloved daughter Tam passed away at 17 from an accidental prescription overdose related to the agonizing migraines she suffered, and her heart ailment,” Farrow said.
And Lark, who died in 2008, was described by her mother as an “extraordinary woman, a wonderful daughter, sister, partner and mother to her own children.”
“She died at 35 from complications of HIV/AIDS, which she contracted from a previous partner,” she said. “Despite her illness she lived a fruitful and loving life with her children and longtime partner. She succumbed to her illness & died suddenly in the hospital on Christmas, in her partner’s arms.”
Farrow then went on to share how her “courageous” son Thaddeus took his own life at 29 after a relationship of his abruptly ended.
The deaths of Tam, Lark and Thaddeus became a trending topic after their names were not mentioned in the recent HBO documentary, Allen v. Farrow. Critics resurfaced Farrow’s estranged son, Moses’ 2018 blog post that criticized her and other family members.
“These are unspeakable tragedies,” Farrow wrote in her Wednesday statement.
“Any other speculation about their deaths is to dishonor their lives and the lives of their children and loved ones.”
Farrow ended the post saying how she is “grateful” to be a mother of 14 and a grandmother of 16.
“Although we have known sorrow, our lives today are full of love and joy,” she wrote. “Everyone has their own battle to fight; their own sorrows that gnaw. I send you my best hopes and my love.”
