Rumors of Janet Jackson having a secret child have spread like wildfire since Radar Online shared its interview with Janet’s ex-husband, James DeBarge, who claimed to have met the singer’s estranged child by way of email. Here is what you need to know about the story.


Radar Online claims to have spoken with DeBarge exclusively
According to the media source, DeBarge opened up about the daughter that he and Janet apparently parent. “Someone had contacted me. She spoke to me by email,” DeBarge shares. “The first time was two years ago. I have not been able to directly see her face-to-face.”

She admitted to being his and Janet’s daughter
“She did but without saying [it],” explains DeBarge. “She was angry because another child was trying to come forward and say that she was our child. So she did out of anger.”

Janet allegedly put her estranged daughter up for adoption
“One of her adoptive parents died,” James says. “Her adoptive mother and on her death bed said she told her. She confirmed it on the deathbed.”

DeBarge had no idea of his and Janet’s alleged daughter’s existence
“I hadn’t known [that Janet had a baby]… not for sure,” he shares. “I went on a search. Someone went through some serious changes to make it impossible for me to find. This had to be some serious inside work being done with the paperwork. Someone was working with them.”
