Frank Sinatra's widow has dismissed reports that the late crooner fathered Mia Farrow's son.
The actress claimed that Frank, not Woody Allen, could be the father of her son in an interview with Vanity Fair.
Asked whether Ronan, 25, was the Rat Pack star's son, she replied: "Possibly."
But Barbara Sinatra told The Desert Sun: "I can't hardly believe that. It's just a bunch of junk. There's always junk written - lies."
She called the reports "phony" and added that nothing had been left to Ronan Farrow, a journalist and human rights activist, from the late singer's estate.
Mia and Sinatra, who she described as the great love of her life, were married for 18 months from July 1966.
He married Barbara in 1976 and they stayed together until his death in 1998, b ut Mia claimed: "We never really split up."
But film director Woody's publicist told The Hollywood Reporter that there was no truth to the comment, adding: "The article is so fictitious and extravagantly absurd that he is not going to comment."
Ronan, who is in talks to host his own programme on MSNBC, also tweeted after the claim: "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."
