The Word: Barbara Sinatra slams Mia Farrow’s paternity claims
Never mind those eyes and that jaw. Frank Sinatra’s widow, Barbara Sinatra, is absolutely certain that Ronan Farrow is not her husband’s son.
“I can’t hardly believe that. It’s just a bunch of junk. There’s always junk written — lies that aren’t true,” Barbara, who was married to the crooner from 1976 until his death in 1998, told the Desert Sun.
“It sounds like a phony to me.”
Woody Allen, Ronan’s purported bio-dad, also dismissed the claims. “The article is so fictitious and extravagantly absurd that he is not going to comment,” his representative told the Associated Press.
I should probably leave it at that as an objective journalist or whatever, but — guys: Those eyes. That jaw.
In a Vanity Fair profile, Mia admits that she’s not sure which famous man fathered Ronan, and said that Frank Sinatra is “possibly” his father. Sinatra was the love of her life, she says, adding that “we never really split up.”
For a pitiable child of uncertain parentage, Ronan Farrow himself keeps a pretty good sense of humor about the situation: “Listen, we’re all *possibly* Frank Sinatra’s son,” he tweeted.
