Woody Allen: If Ronan Farrow Is Frank Sinatra's Son, Mia Farrow Lied Under Oath
Director Woody Allen said his only biological son may very well be the son of Frank Sinatra. If it is true Allen claims ex-love Mia Farrow lied under oath just to receive child support.
I pause here for a quick word on the Ronan situation. 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? That all during the custody hearing Mia lied under oath and falsely represented Ronan as our son? Even if he is not Frank’s, the possibility she raises that he could be, indicates she was secretly intimate with him during our years. Not to mention all the money I paid for child support. Was I supporting Frank’s son? Again, I want to call attention to the integrity and honesty of a person who conducts her life like that.
He addressed the issue in The New York Times op-ed he published to dispel claims by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow that he sexually abused her when she was seven-years-old. He uses the Ronan situation as evidence he did not abuse Dylan because Farrow cannot be trusted. He mentioned the Yale New Haven Hospital case, which said Farrow coached Dylan and brainwashed her into believing Allen molested her.
In an exclusive interview with Vanity Fair, Farrow and eight of her kids spoke to the magazine about their life. It was then she hinted there was a possibility Ronan was the late crooner's biological child. After the divorce, Ronan was not close to his father and tweeted this on Father's Day in June 2012.
He took it in stride when his paternity was questioned.
The molestation claims first hit the news in 1992, but only resurfaced after Allen received the Cecile B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes. Ronan could not stand to see his "father" being honored considering the past.
Dylan wrote an open letter in the Times about what Allen did to her. In it she confronts the big Hollywood stars who worked with him by name, even Diane Keaton who accepted the award on Allen's behalf. Keaton is a frequent collaborator with Allen and starred in his best known movie, Annie Hall.
