Barbara Sinatra, Frank Sinatra’s widow, is describing the allegations that Mia Farrow’s son, Ronan, was actually fathered by her late husband as, “a phony deal”.
Farrow shocked millions earlier this week, when she admitted to Vanity Fair that Sinatra could “possibly” be Ronan’s father.
Farrow, who was married to Sinatra for only 18 months, said that he was the “great love of her life” and that “we never really split up”. Despite being involved with Woody Allen at the time of Ronan’s birth, Farrow still says that there is a chance that Allen may not be his father. A DNA test has not been done at this time.
Barbara was reached by the Desert Sun, via telephone, for a comment on the situation, which she quickly denied. “I can’t hardly believe that. It’s just a bunch of junk. There’s always junk written — lies that aren’t true,” she said. She also informed the newspaper that Sinatra did not acknowledge Ronan as his son and nothing was left for him in his will.
Woody Allen’s rep also debunked the rumors saying, “The article is so fictitious and extravagantly absurd that he is not going to comment.”
Ronan took a more humorous approach to the situation, via Twitter, when he jokingly said, “Listen, we are all possibly Frank Sinatra’s son.”
Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son.
