Why did Mia Farrow and André Previn divorce?

Mia Farrow and André Previn’s relationship lasted for 11 years, however, the couple had six children together during that period, three of which were adopted.

Mia Farrow and André Previn’s marriage was amongst the most underrated of their respective relationships, despite them having six children during their years together. Mia’s second marriage to André, who was on his third marriage, took place in 1970, two years after they began dating. The couple had three biological children, fraternal twins, Matthew and Sascha, who were born before they were married, and Fletcher, who was born in 1974. They then adopted Vietnamese infants, Lark Song and Summer “Daisy” Song, in 1974 and Soon-Yi Previn, a six-year-old Korean girl in 1976.

In 1979, the couple announced their divorce, which is speculated to have stemmed from Mia’s reported affair with director, Woody Allen. Although they didn’t formally address the reason for their split, they remained committed to raising their six children together. This was until a scandal was made public in 2008, when it was reported that Woody had been having a relationship with Mia and André’s daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. Technically his step-daughter, Woody was criticised for his inappropriate relationship with the then 21-year-old, which led to André disowning his daughter, and for his co-parenting relationship with Mia to become even more strained.
