Frank Sinatra's widow Barbara has dismissed the suggestion that Mia Farrow's son Ronan could have been fathered by the legendary singer. Now living partly in Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs, Sinatra told the Desert Sun local newspaper it was "a phoney deal".
The former model married Sinatra in 1976 and they remained together until his death in 1998. Ronan Farrow, who was born in December 1987, was presumably conceived in March of that year. Barbara Sinatra, 85, was apparently unaware of the speculation surrounding her former husband, but told the Desert Sun: "I can't hardly believe that. It's just a bunch of junk. There's always junk written — lies that aren't true."

If there's one person who's not buying into Mia Farrow's claim that Frank Sinatra, and not Woody Allen, could "possibly" be the biological father of her 25-year-old son, Ronan, it's the widow of Ol' Blue Eyes himself.
