Mia Farrow Claims Frank Sinatra, Not Woody Allen, Might Be Ronan's Father

Twenty years ago, the seemingly happy lives of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen were ripped apart by a series of scandals. First, she discovered naked pictures Allen had taken of her nineteen-year-old adopted daughter, and second, Dylan, the seven-year-old adopted daughter the couple shared, accused Allen of molesting her. Through multiple custody trials and more public allegations, the story played out on the front pages of newspapers for years, but eventually, everyone involved settled into a fairly quiet routine, at least until the new issue of Vanity Fair brought with it entirely new allegations.

Apparently, there’s a real possibility Farrow and Allen’s brilliant biological son Ronan might not be Allen’s at all. Instead, he may have been fathered by Frank Sinatra. The actress claims she and the legendary musician never totally separated and were sleeping together around the time she got pregnant. Ronan himself, however, isn’t quite as convinced. Here’s what he said on Twitter

In addition to Farrow’s reveal, Dylan also spoke on the record for the first time about what she claims happened between her and the famous father she never speaks to. She apparently doesn’t remember everything that happened because she was only seven, but she remembers enough to know it was (allegedly) wrong.

“There’s a lot I don’t remember, but what happened in the attic I remember. I remember what I was wearing and what I wasn’t wearing. The things making me uncomfortable were making me think I was a bad kid, because I didn’t want to do what my elder told me to do. I was cracking. I had to say something. I was seven. I was doing it because I was scared. I wanted it to stop.”

The first time through, the police thoroughly investigated Dylan’s allegations, and there really wasn’t any evidence beyond her testimony. In order to spare her from having to get on the witness stand, the matter was completely dropped, though in retrospect, she wishes she would have followed through and testified. Since day one, Allen has always vehemently maintained his innocence. More than likely, the general public will never know exactly what happened.
