Woody Allen admits Ronan Farrow might be Frank Sinatra’s son

Woody Allen has hinted that Ronan Farrow, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, may not be his biological son.

In a recent profile of his wife, Soon-Yi Previn, published on the New York magazine’s Vulture website, Allen said that he believes Farrow is his son, but he “wouldn’t bet his life on it.”

Allen’s comments come amid persistent rumors that Farrow’s biological father is actually Frank Sinatra, who was briefly married to Farrow’s mother, Mia Farrow.

Allen himself was in a relationship with Mia Farrow from 1980 to 1992, and Ronan was born in December 1987.

When asked by Vanity Fair in 2013 whether Sinatra was Ronan’s dad, Mia Farrow responded, “Possibly.” Ronan later joked on Twitter, “Listen, we’re all possibly Frank Sinatra’s son.”

A Sinatra biography published about three years ago said that it was impossible for Ronan to be the legendary crooner’s offspring because Sinatra was impotent and incapacitated by stomach surgery around the time of Ronan’s conception.

However, Allen has also expressed doubt about Ronan’s paternity in the past.

In 2014, he wrote in the New York Times, “Is he my son or, as Mia suggests, Frank Sinatra’s? Granted, he looks a lot like Frank with the blue eyes and facial features, but if so, what does this say?”

Allen went on to say in the recent profile that he paid child support for Ronan throughout his childhood, and that it wouldn’t be fair if it turned out that he was not the biological father.

“I think he is, but I wouldn’t bet my life on it. I paid child support for him for his whole childhood, and I don’t think that’s very fair if he’s not mine,” the four-time Oscar winner said.

Mia Farrow was married to Sinatra on July 19, 1966, when she was 21 and he was 50. They divorced two years later, and Farrow blamed the demise of their union on their vast age difference.

However, they remained close friends until Sinatra’s death in 1998.

Farrow was also married to André Previn from 1970 to 1979. In 1980, she began her relationship with Allen, and Ronan was born seven years later.

    So Ronan is not Woody’s son? No sh-t, Sherlock. Just look at Woody; look at Ronan. Such ugliness in Woody could never be in the gene pool.

    Great. So you believe Ronan is not Woody’s son. Do you realize the implications of your stance?

    It means that Mia Farrow:
    – LIED to the father about his son;
    – LIED to her son about his father;
    – LIED in court (perjury!) when she sued Woody Allen for child support millions $$$
    – only admitted after that money train had run out in 2013.

    I believe such totally dishonest ‘mother’ is surely capable of making a false child abuse allegation against her hated ex-partner.
