Who is Ronan Farrow and is he Frank Sinatra's son?

ALTHOUGH Mia Farrow's son Ronan is thought to be a result of her marriage to Woody Allen, it is alleged he could be Frank Sinatra's child.

An HBO docuseries delving into Ronan's sister Dylan's allegations of sexual abuse against their father is set to air February 21 at 9 pm EST.

Who is Ronan Farrow?

Satchel Ronan O'Sullivan Farrow is an American journalist.

He is known for his investigative reporting of allegations of sexual abuse against film producer Harvey Weinstein, which was published in the The New Yorker.

The magazine won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service in 2018 alongside the New York Times.

The 34-year-old's subsequent investigations have exposed allegations against politician Eric Schneiderman, media executive Les Moonves, and lawyer and jurist Brett Kavanaugh.

He has written essays, op-eds, and other pieces for The Guardian, Foreign Policy magazine, The Atlantic, The Wall Street Journal, and more.

As well as an investigative journalist, Ronan received his Juris Doctor degree from Yale University in 2009. He later passed the New York State bar examination.

Ronan is a member of the LGBTQ+ community and has been dating American podcaster Jon Lovett since 2011.

Who is his father?

Ronan is the son of actress Mia Farrow and director Woody Allen. He became estranged from his father after Allen married Farrow's adoptive daughter Soon-Yi Previn.

"He's my father married to my sister. That makes me his son and his brother-in-law. That is such a moral transgression," Ronan once said of his father's marriage to Soon-Yi.

 "I cannot see him," he told the New York Post. "I cannot have a relationship with my father and be morally consistent."

In a 2013 interview with Vanity Fair, Mia Farrow alluded that Ronan could "possibly" be the biological child of singer Frank Sinatra, with whom she was married from 1966 to 1968.

When the story broke, Ronan tweeted in response: "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."

What has he said about the sexual abuse allegations against Woody Allen?

Allen is alleged to have abused his daughter Dylan Farrow when she was a young child.

Allen strongly denied the allegation, calling it "an unconscionable and gruesomely damaging manipulation of innocent children for vindictive and self-serving motives."

And Previn, his wife, has insisted her husband is innocent.

Speaking out in a bombshell New York Magazine interview, Previn publicly defended him.

Ronan tweeted a statement in support of his mother.

He criticized New York Magazine for its decision to publish “a hit job, written by a longtime admirer and friend of Woody Allen’s."

 "I owe everything I am to Mia Farrow. She is a devoted mom who went through hell for her family all while creating a loving home for us,"

"But that has never stopped Woody Allen and his allies from planting stories that attack and vilify my mother to deflect from my sister’s credible allegation of abuse," he wrote.

"As a journalist, I’m shocked by the lack of care for the facts, the refusal to include eyewitness testimony that would contradict falsehoods in this piece, and the failure to include my sister’s complete response,"

"Survivors of abuse deserve better," he concluded.
