Today, Allen denies there ever even was any scandal:
Q. ... Do you think America is ready to forgive you for your past scandals?
A: "What was the scandal? I fell in love with this girl, married her. We have been married for almost 15 years now.
There was no scandal, but people refer to it all the time as a scandal and I kind of like that in way because when I go I would like to say I had one real juicy scandal in my life."

In the latest issue of Vanity Fair Mia Farrow and her children look back on that time with very different eyes. Although now all adults, each child seems to bear the scars of Allen's presence and then disappearance in their lives. Not to mention the alleged memories of child abuse that still haunt Mia and Woody's adopted daughter Dylan (now renamed Malone).
Amusingly, what is generating the most headlines from the article is a seemingly casual quote from Mia regarding Ronan (originally named Satchel), her biological son with Woody:
When asked point-blank if her biological son with Woody Allen, Ronan Farrow, may actually be the son of Frank Sinatra, Farrow answers, “Possibly.” No DNA tests have been done. When Orth asks Nancy Sinatra Jr. about Ronan’s being treated as if he were a member of her family, Sinatra answers in an e-mail, “He is a big part of us, and we are blessed to have him in our lives.”
Ronan, who is an extremely accomplished young man, may or not be the son of Woody Allen, but he certainly has a sense of humor, as he exhibited in a tweet regarding his parentage:
Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son.
