Barbara Sinatra dismisses Mia Farrow's paternity remark as 'junk'

October 03, 2013|By Christie D'Zurilla

Barbara Sinatra has replied to the bombshell comment by Mia Farrow that Frank Sinatra could "possibly" be the father of Ronan Farrow, heretofore known as Mia's one biological child with Woody Allen.

Her take on the situation? "It’s just a bunch of junk," Barbara Sinatra told the Desert Sun on Thursday. "There’s always junk written — lies that aren’t true."

Farrow, in a new interview with Vanity Fair, said she and Frank Sinatra "never really split up" after their two-year marriage, which ended in 1968. Asked directly about whether Ronan, who was born Satchel, could be the crooner's kid, Farrow replied, "possibly."

Barbara and Frank Sinatra were married from 1976 through 1998, when the singer died. Ronan Farrow was born in December 1987, just after Frank Sinatra turned 72.

A rep for Allen told the Associated Press that the situation was "so fictitious and extravagantly absurd" that the director was not going to comment. 

Also chiming in on the matter? The babe in question himself, Ronan Farrow.

Tweeting on Wednesday morning, he said, "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."

No DNA tests have been conducted, Vanity Fair said.
