Woody Allen really is going to need therapy after this quasi-revelation. The famously neurotic director’s ex, Mia Farrow, dropped the bombshell that her ex husband and subsequent lover Frank Sinatra could have fathered Woody and Mia’s son, lawyer Ronan Allen, 25.
Asked by bold Vanity Fair writer, Maureen Orth, about Sinatra’s possible paternity, Farrow replied: “Possibly.”
The Rosemary’s Baby star was married to Ol’ Blue Eyes from 1966 to 1968 but they often hooked up even while she was with Allen. Sinatra (who died in 1998) would have been 78 when Ronan was conceived.
The mother of 14 and Allen split bitterly in 1992 when she discovered the filmmaker was having an affair with her adopted daughter Soon Yi Previn, now Allen’s wife.
So the VF article could be sweet revenge. Only a DNA test could tell for sure. But there sure is a resemblance.
Ronan and Allen are said to be estranged.
Meanwhile, Frank’s widow debunked the rumor. “I can't hardly believe that,” Barbara Sinatra told The Desert Sun after Farrow’s shocking interview made headlines. “It's just a bunch of junk. There's always junk written — lies that aren't true.”
Casey Kasem is alive but not kicking. The velvety voiced DJ, 81, has advanced Parkinson’s disease, and his three kids are concerned. They say their stepmother Jean Kasem, who played ditzy Loretta Tortelli on Cheers, has barred the kids (their mom is Casem’s first wife, singer-actress Linda Myers) from seeing the radio legend, reports KABC-TV in Los Angeles. Maybe the actress want to make sure Casem’s will doesn’t get changed? Sounds like it, but since she had no comment, her motives are not clear.
