Woody Allen was booked to perform at the now-canceled wedding of Roy Price before the ousted Amazon Studios chief called off his nuptials in the wake of sexual harassment claims.
Allen’s Eddy David New Orleans Jazz Band was locked in to play at the Manhattan wedding on Nov. 12 at the director’s longtime haunt, Café Carlyle, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Price was accused of sexually harassing TV producer Isa Hackett and resigned from his post days later.
A source close to the “Annie Hall” director said he was relieved to keep his distance from the situation.
Allen has worked with Amazon on three projects, the TV series “Crisis in Six Scenes” starring Miley Cyrus, the film “Cafe Society” and his upcoming flick “Wonder Wheel,” starring Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake and Jim Belushi.

However, sources told THR he did not have a relationship with Price.
Price reportedly stopped by Café Carlyle during Allen’s jazz residency in order to lock his group in as a wedding performer.
He was set to marry Lila Feinberg, a TV writer and playwright, before she called the wedding off in the wake of the scandal.
Allen, 81, famously left his former wife Mia Farrow for her adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, who is 34 years his junior.

The pair has been married since 1997.
Allen has been the target of abuse allegations from his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow.
She claimed in a 2014 New York Times piece that Allen abused her in 1992 when she was just seven in her mother Mia’s attic.
The longtime writer and director denied her claims, stating that Mia Farrow orchestrated the whole thing because of his relationship with Previn.
“Of course, I did not molest Dylan,” he said at the time. “I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter’s well-being.”
