Hollywood is certainly no stranger to paternity scandals as accusations and lawsuits abound. However, a recent interview with longtime actress Mia Farrow, divulged some interesting fodder. Formerly married to famous singer Frank Sinatra and movie making mogul/controversial personality Woody Allen, Farrow acknowledged that she remains unsure as to her 25-year old son Ronan’s true paternity.
The seasoned entertainer graced “Vanity Fair” with an exclusive interview and discussed her brief marriage and continued relationship with famous singer Frank Sinatra. Her marriage lasted from 1966 to 1968 and after a divorce, the star went on to marry composer Andre Previn. Later, she then became involved in a much publicized relationship and subsequent marriage to Woody Allen. Through her relationships and marriages, Farrow admits that she and Frank “never really split up.” Sinatra passed away in 1998 and Farrow has not subjected her son to DNA testing to learn his true paternal origins.
Farrow’s comments combined with her son’s uncanny resemblance to the former entertainer were enough to start tongues wagging. However, curiosity soon got the better of “Vanity Fair” reporter Maureen Orth. Upon hearing this startling revelation, Orth made a point of getting in touch with Sinatra’s famous daughter Nancy to find out if the young man had any contact with the family over the years. By e-mail reply, the songstress merely stated that the Sinatra family considers Ronan one of their own and that they consider having him a blessing.
Much to his credit, Ronan takes the media frenzy and his mother’s admission in stride. Not giving credence to the gossip, he submitted a statement to social site Twitter saying, “Listen, we’re all possibly Frank Sinatra’s son.” While many may feel stunned at Farrow’s honest admission, one personality remains unmoved. Renowned for offering DNA testing and revealing parental origins on his popular daytime television show, Maury Povich is not the least bit surprised concerning the latest paternity scandal to come from Hollywood.
Povich takes the scenario one step further and like many curious fans, expresses the desire to know the truth. The daytime host recently invited both Mia Farrow and her son Ronan onto the show to find out once and for all if the young man is indeed the son of Frank Sinatra. The fact that Sinatra died 15 years ago does not discount the possibility of determining paternity as the singer has close living relatives. However, it is highly unlikely that the star or her son will agree to such an event. In addition to four of her own biological children, over the years, Farrow opened her home to 11 adopted children, many of whom had or have special needs.
