Nancy Sinatra Defends Father Frank Sinatra’s Friend And Collaborator Dean Martin From The Alcoholic Label

The singer and daughter of the late Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, took to Twitter Wednesday to defend her father’s friend and collaborator Dean Martin.

In response to a Twitter thread that claimed Martin didn’t have to “act…he was drunk.” Sinatra simply wrote“That’s a lie. Dean was very disciplined, he played golf every morning. Drinking was part of the professional personality, an act,” he added.

In addition to being a musician, Martin was known for both his comedy and variety shows.

Martin was also a member of the Rat Pack, an elite group of entertainers in the ’40s and ’50s, which also included the aging Sinatra, Nat King Cole, and Sammy Davis Jr., among others.

Nancy refuted this claim, writing, “No. His face reflected his grief and sadness over the loss of his son. He was never the same after Dean Jr. died. He was just a shell.”
