American actress Mia Farrow, 68, raised eyebrows Tuesday when she suggested that her son Ronan Farrow was fathered by Frank Sinatra but Frank Sinatra's widow Barbara is certain that Farrow's claim is bunk. Barbara Sinatra, the fourth wife of the crooner told the Desert Sun that Mia's remark in Vanity Fair is "a phony deal."
Barbara Sinatra pointed out that Frank Sinatra did not leave anything to Ronan Farrow in his will. Woody Allen's camp also reacted to Mia Farrow's claim but did not release a statement about the paternity issue from Woody Allen himself. A representative of the filmmaker told the Associated Press that the Vanity Fair article is "fictitious and extravagantly absurd."
Mia Farrow, who rose to fame in television soap Peyton Place as Allison MacKenzie, was married to filmmaker Woody Allen when Ronan was born. The American actress also told Vanity Fair that she and the crooner "never really split up" and that she has maintained a close relationship with the Sinatra children.
25-year-old Ronan Farrow, the man in the centre of the controversy, took the news lightly. He tweeted Wednesday, "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."
The Rhodes Scholar Ronan is reportedly busy with work and is believed that he is at the negotiating table with American news network MSNBC for a political debate show.
The lawyer and human rights activist has appeared on the channel a few times before and may be added in MSNBC's newest list of personalities. Aside from appearing on channels like MSNBC and CNN, Farrow has also published articles for the International Herald Tribune and the Wall Street Journal.
Ronan worked at the State Department under the Obama administration where he served as one of Hillary Clinton's advisers when Clinton was still Secretary of State. Ronan also established the Office of Global Youth at the State Department.
