Who was Tam Farrow?

Tam Farrow was one of the seven adopted kids of actress Mia Farrow and sister of her four half-siblings. Farrow adopted a blind girl from Vietnam named Tam one month after learning about the affair between Allen and Soon-Yi.

In a heartbreaking Twitter post, actress Mia Farrow opened up about the tragic deaths of her three children Tam, Lark and Thaddeus Farrow. The veteran actress posted her statement on Wednesday, March 31, to address the ‘vicious rumors’ circulating about their deaths recently.

The alleged rumors are believed to have resurfaced with the recent HBO documentary series ‘Allen v. Farrow’.

“Few families are perfect, and any parent who has suffered the loss of a child knows that pain is merciless and ceaseless. However, some vicious rumors based on untruths have appeared online concerning the lives of three of my children. To honor their memory, their children and every family that has dealt with the death of a child, I am posting this message,” Farrow wrote in her Twitter post. On an emotional note, she shared, “As a mother of fourteen children, my family means everything to me. While I chose a career that placed me in the public arena, most of my children have elected to live very private lives. I respect each of their wishes, which is why I am selective in my social media posts.”

How old was Tam Farrow?

Tam Farrow was 19 years old at the time of death.

Tam Farrow Death

In 2000, Tam died at the age of 17 years. At that time, Farrow’s spokesperson declared that Tam had died from heart failure due to her ‘weak heart’. While speaking about her death in her Wednesday’s statement, Farrow wrote, “My beloved daughter Tam passed away at 17 from an accidental prescription overdose related to the agonizing migraines she suffered, and her heart ailment.”

However, Farrow’s statement tends to contradict a 2018 blog post by her son, Moses Farrow, titled ‘A Son Speaks Out’. In the tell-all post, Moses addresses the feuds, tragedies and struggles plaguing his family. He speaks about his sister Tam’s death in the same post, alleging that she committed suicide.

Tam Farrow Cause of Death

“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,” Moses had written. He also added, “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 a sense of spatial recognition. And, of course, blindness didn’t impair her ability to count.”
