American noted family, the son of Frank and Nancy Sinatra. Frank Jr. worked on a singing career and night club act in the Lake Tahoe area before moving into producing.
At age 20, he was on his first tour singing in nightclubs when he was kidnapped at gunpoint from a Lake Tahoe, Nevada hotel room by three men on 8 December 1963. The kidnapper, Barry Keenan, was high on booze and Percodan, and the whole thing turned into an inept fiasco. They demanded a ransom of $240,000. After the ransom was paid, Frank Jr. was released, the men were caught and given stiff prison sentences.
Frank Jr. has had paternity suits filed against him in 1970, 1977 and 1980. On 8 July 1998, he turned around and filed a lawsuit against the three men who had kidnapped him in 1963 to keep them from making a profit of the movie rights on the story.
On 15 October 1998, Frank Jr. married Houston attorney Cynthia McMurray in a quickie ceremony at the courthouse in Wharton, TX. He failed to tell any of his family about the wedding, which was actually supposed to be three days later, infuriating his sisters, Nancy and Tina, who snubbed the reception. Cynthia has three children from a previous marriage and is not liked by the Sinatra family, who think she is a gold digger.
Frank Jr. filed for divorce in August 2000, adamant that Cynthia not get any alimony due to her extravagance. After a post-nuptial agreement, he put down $3.5 million for a Beverly Hills estate, fur coats and designer gowns for Cynthia. A month later, he rescinded the divorce, deciding to try again to make the marriage work. He has sold the large home in Beverly Hills and is hunting for a more modest home in L.A.
Frank Sinatra Jr. died of cardiac arrest on 16 March 2016 while on tour in Daytona Beach, Florida, aged 72.
