I thought he was bald?

I love that song he did with Joe; that shit was the bomb.

;)

Anonymous said...

that is pretty skinny, he would be alright at 5'9" maybe 150 or something but 130 is bad

Opinionated Diva said...

That is a skinny mofo! Apparently the women in his life like it cause he has a whole village of rugrats.

He was booked at 1:20 in the afternoon...why was he arrested?

Morgan said...

^^ he was PROCESSED at 1:20 in the afternoon.

20,000 bail ain't no joke.


what the hell he do?

Ron Mexico's Pharmacist said...

This is out in LA. Go to www.lasd.org and look up "Inmate Information" to find out some info on your boy El. Tsk tsk tsk.

Real Talk said...

El Debarge never did a song w Joe. That was Chico. El Debarge made hits w the groups Switch and Debarge in the early 80's.

Damn! The new generation better never go on a show like "Know Your Heritage!" YAll will be coming up short!

Anonymous said...

Someone needs to get their facts straight. It wasn't a felony nor drugs. It was a misdemeanor charge for a domestic dispute.

Anonymous said...

Following in his brother's footsteps but I was just listening to Debarge him and that falsetto..

El never mad hits with Switch, that was his brother Bobby.

Anonymous said...

Geeeeeeeeez! I'm glad SOMEBODY up in here know their Switch/DeBarge facts and history. Clueless folks piss me off.

LONG LIVE DEBARGE HATERS!!!

Anonymous said...

Actually there were 2 brothers in Switch Tommy and Bobby and 1 of them died from aids. I think it was Bobby.

Anonymous said...

Obviously there are too many DeBarge brothers just like the Jacksons. Folks be gettin' confused. So Bitch, what are the facts? Felony or Misdemeanor? Domestic or other? I've never heard of a $20K bail for domestic. More like $2000.

Naw Son said...

14th Yessssss.
EL is way to pretty for jail...ok, maybe for a man that has been locked down for 20plus years and loves light skin, "indian Hair" broads...GOOD LUCK EL !...Clinch

notme said...

Maybe he only had to pay like %10 of the bail like in my town

That Bitch! said...

So Bitch, what are the facts? Felony or Misdemeanor? Domestic or other?

@naw son: so was chico debarge, he cut that hair with the quickness when he was lockdown

Jennifer said...

Have any of the DeBarge siblings NOT seen a jail cell?

EL has one of the greatest voices!
I have always hoped that I could catch him in concert one more time.
He is definitely a star in my book forever..
El please get it together.
You are truely a star!!

^^Tru tru.... I agree 100%

Blah Blah said...

1. I'm most surprised at the "B" after race. They're black? Who knew?

2. 5'9, 130 lbs? He must've gained weight since his Debarge days. He was at crackish weight way back then.

3. Crack addictions must run in their family: the one that died (can't remember his name), James, Chico, and now El...

Rue said...

Wonder where Bunny Debarge is anyway?

Virgo74 said...

But, El's race is not black!!! I thought the family was hispanic?

Anonymous said...

YO! this was not news worthy! this was news worthy 15 years ago but right now....WTFC!!!

Anonymous said...

They black.Just cause they light skin don't mean nothing.Look at his momma she is Indian/Black.You only can be so ignorant.

Anonymous said...

I was always told that the Debarges' were Hispanics, like Puerto Rican..anyways, for those of you (age) 23 and under that may not remember this family/group, they were THE BOMB back in the 80's and their music has been sampled continously over time..I luv Chico!lol

Shaqua said...

*raises hands in the air*

Member of the My Ass Old Enough to Remember the DeBarge Family along w/ Real Talk & Anon 6:29! LOL!

Anon 9:34, you've said everything I wanted to say. He has one of the best falsetto's ever; definately a class act. I hope he gets it together and I wish him and his family the best. I still jam to my DeBarge's greatest hits. Some of y'all never know Biggie's "One More Chance" and Ashanti's "Foolish" was a DeBarge sample. Look it up! Look it up!

That's when you know you're old, you hear a song and be like...that's such and such!

I always thought they were black, but of hispanic heritage. But you know in the 80's you were either Black, White or Other, so they fell in line. I think even after THE JETS (y'all don't know nuttin' 'bout that) claimed they were pacific islanders from Hawaii...folks were still like THEY BLACK! THEY BLACK! LOL.

Damn Opinionated Diva....he got kids like that? Never heard of it!

Anonymous said...

The Debarge family IS NOT HISPANIC. Their mother is black and their father is white, however they all consider themselves black.

By the way for the person who asked, Bunny lives in Michigan with her lovely family.

Anonymous said...

DeBarge are of "mixed" heritage. Black and White. Though, you know the 1 drop rule.

El did not sing in Switch people! Doesn't El have like 10 kids? Look up their mom on her myspace page. She has hella grandkids!
Does anyone remember the SYLVERS! Whoa, I'm telling on myself. Till the next episode......

Anonymous said...

Back then (from what my sister tells me) guys with the falsetto voices get the girls lol.

Them Debarges have myspaces, pretty interesting.EL and his family in LA.Chico in Michigan, Bunny too.

Some people don't remember Switch, Bobby (who did a lot of singing) and Tommy were in the group.And when I said El doing a lot of what Bobby done (going to jail) becaus he looked up to him.As some of you don't know Polow jacked the hell out of Call Your Name and sampled it for Rich Boy Throw Some Ds,because I know Polow isn't that great of a produce :).RIP to Bobby and that voice!

WTFever said...

Mayne fuck this nigga...lookin like Orlando Bloom on grits.

His Mother is black and his father is white! El has like 10 kids!! It was 10 of the Debarge clan all together. I hope El gets it together and drop a much needed album.

@ shaqua.

I downloaded The Jets last week. lol. An I also got Switch.

Anonymous said...

Dam! I loved that song "Secret Garden" produced by Quincy Jones/Al B Sure/James Ingram and El De Barge....man that is still the joint! Maybe Quincy Jones or someone can dust him off, because like most of all said on the thread, this brother is definately a talent that was not nurtured in the right way...I loved Chico De Barge too and some of his old stuff produced by Joe...AND YEAH..Maybe VH1 can do something on them and tell us where in the hell are the De Barge's now? That would be something huh? --QBEve

Shaqua said...

Grandma DeBarge got a myspace?????
*drops dead*

C'est Moi said...

This is shocking and sad. It is like a family curse: jail. Can't get the inmate info to load.

Hi, all. Linked here from tmz.

Anonymous said...

el has his problems like every body esle

C'est Moi said...

No, I don't want him to have problems; I want him to produce other artists and put out records and tour. I never thought of El & drugs in the same breath. Guess I've been out of the loop. When does Vibe publish more of their story?

C'est Moi said...

WRONG!!! His father was not white, he was French/Canadian....and yes we have a big family.

Anonymous said...

B for black. Stands for a man who is not even full black. As if black is a race. Its a color. Looks like someone forgot a left over Jim Crow law.

Anonymous said...

Bunny Debarge has published a book and is recording gospel music. Check out her myspace page. It was noted in a previous comment that her mother has a myspace page. This is true. Chico, James, and several other DeBarge members have pages also.

DivineJoy said...

Read this on another site...

"Drugs happened,” blurts [mother] Etterlene DeBarge. “It's painful totalk about, but when El got into drugs, it just paralyzed him. If I had to do it again, I would never allow my kids to be in the music industry.There are a lot of snakes out there, and they bite real hard.”

Anonymous said...

umm... French/Canadian is still white!!

Anonymous said...

Do we really need history lessons up in here.Like Anon9:51 said French/Canadian you still will.But his dad is not white.

C'est Moi said...

Where is Eldra's father? Has he passed away? I guess Chico has said he treated them like Joe Jackson treated their kids: bad. I have heard allegations of incestual abuse within that poor family (the brother who passed of AIDS raped Tommy, who was not in DeBarge?).

And to say she never would have let them go into the music industry if she could do it over again also makes me so sad. We would have missed so much amazing music.

El DeBarge is great no matter what he does, He dont do drugs so dunno why peeps saying that for, he will bounce back and bring out a new album and shit in all your mouths who diss him, come on El

YOU PEOPLE ARE WACK. EL DEBARGE RAPED MY FRIEND WHEN SHE WAS 15 AND HE WAS 35. HE IS A SICK PIECE OF SHIT AND DESERVES TO ROT IN JAIL.

C'est Moi said...

1996? The same year Eldra was arrested for reasons I do not know and subsequently ordered to make back child support payments for a daughter? Did your friend, the alleged victim, press charges?

Anonymous said...

I think Rich Boy should post his bond for using his song

Anonymous said...

The DeBarge's are biracial (black and white). The mother is black and father is white. The info is in the issue of Vibe. Please go get a copy.

Anonymous said...

Did he really rape some 25 year old? I dont belive that shit for a minute, he doesnt need to reape anyone. An yes the family is black bc their mom is black. An people need to stop dissin El, i hope he doesnt read none of thi shit an take it to heart.

Anonymous said...

Damn why is El's race so important. NONE of the DeBarges are Hispanic they are French/Canadian and Black, his mom is as black looking as they come. I hate that shit just cause they got loose curly hair and are light motherfuckers try to classify them as anything but black. Its amazing how ignorant people really are.

Anonymous said...

did this happen in lancaster, pa? if so, what the hell was he doing there...chillin' with the amish?

DeBarge Lover said...

All of you are so mis-quoting, mis-informing, and disrespectful! The facts are this.....Yes, he El 10 kids, so what? It's not like he can't afford them. Yes, he is bi-racial who cares? Most of us are. (Don't deny it)
Yes, he WAS a cocaine addict, but has been clean and sober for over three years now. He is a Church-going, God-fearing Christian now and has the support of his entire family and that is a lot of people. Some of you should be so lucky to have that kind of support.(I know you need it,trying to deny your drug abuse)
Yes, El was arrested, but he was NOT arrested for domestic abuse. In an interview El,himself gave...he cleared up the rumors about domestic violence. He said that since he was on probation for all the years he was on cocaine and finally was caught using etc., he had gotten sober, was getting more jobs and appearances, his career was starting to begin again, and because of some concerts/appearances, he missed wto appointments to visit with his P.O. and because it's the P.O's job to report him for not showing, he did. El was arrested in the early morning hours, with no incident, and was released shortly after.
I think he should be commended on all his hard work, his contributions to the music world, and for being a good, loving father to his kid. El is a beautiful man, and I look forward to the day I should meet him. For the rest of you haters/gossipers/paparrazi wannabe's, look upyour facts before you go onto a forum and bash anyone.
****DeBarge Rocks!***

i am 5'7" tall i used to be 120 pounds until the age of 24 years old when i got into bodybuilding, 130 pounds for 5'9" is ok, some guys are naturally lean, almost no body fat, it's not because of drugs, or not eating, just not overeating carbs, sweets, sugary drinks, alcoholic beverages (i don't drink and i've never drinked alcohol in my life, maybe El has always abstained from alcohol), sugar, flour and fattening shit, and eating healthy just because most people are overweight in the usa, 5'9" and 130 pounds sounds "too skinny".
Michael Jackson is 5'11 and only weighs 120 pounds, according to his arrest file, now that is all bones, because he's 5'11" he doesn't eat.

LISTEN-

EL AND I SPENT TIME TOGETHER AS FRIENDS AND HUNG OUT WHEN HE CAME TO ST LOUIS. WE TALKED ABOUT SOMETHINGS HE WAS HURT BY IN HIS MARRIAGE AT THE TIME AND SOMEOTHER PRIVATE THINGS IM NOT GOING TO MENTION BECAUSE ITS NO ONES BUSINESS. IM ON HERE TO SAY ALOT OF YOU ARE MAKING COMMENTS ON HIM AND HIS SHORT COMINGS BUT ALWAYS KNOW THAT EVERYTHING U HEAR ISNT ALWAYS TRUE AND EVEN IF IT IS..WHY ARE YALL TAKING YALL ENERGY TO PUT IN DOWN? FROM WHAT IVE SEEN AND KNOW, EL IS A BEAUTIFUL KIND HEARTED MAN. HE'S ALSO A FAMILY MAN AND WILL KILL FOR HIS CHILDREN. LIFE IS REALLY FUCKED UP FOR ENTERTAINERS MORE THEN YALL CAN REALIZE AND YALL REALLY DONT KNOW THE THINGS HE HAS WITNESS OR GONE THRU. KEEP EL IN YOUR PRAYERS INSTEAD OF ALL THIS MESS BECAUSE PRAYER IS STRONG AND CHANGES. IM SURE EACH OF U HAS SOMEONE IN YOUR LIFE THAT HAS OR IS ON DRUGS WEATHER ITS X PILLS, WEED, CRACK OR WHATEVER, ITS ALL A DAMM DRUG!! BUT WHAT I WANT U TO ASK URSELVES IS DO YOU CARE ABOUT THOSE IN YOUR FAMILY? HOW WOULD U FEEL IF IT WAS YOUR DAD, BROTHER, SISTER ETC BEING TALKED ABOUT FROM STRANGERS THAT NO "NOTHING" ABOUT THAT LOVED ONE? IF YALL KNOW THE FAMILY HAS HAD A HISTORY OF PROBLEMS AS MOST FAMILIES DO THEN TAKE THE TIME TO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE AND PRAY INSTEAD OF GOSSIP. IM OPENED TO ALL WHO WANTS TO REPLY. IM EASILY FOUND ON MYSPACE AT WWW.MYSPACE.COM/CLASSYBLKGIRL

THANK YOU AND I HOPE I LEFT YOU ALL WITH A BETTER VIEW ON LIFE AND FAMILY VALUES.

If everybody who keeps writing on this page watch the t.v. show "unsung" you will hear the story of the DeBarge family, it came on last night and will probably be on again the weekend or on Monday night. The Father is white and was abusive to the mother when she had only 8 of the kids, for some reason she stayed and had 2 more, Bunny was molested by her father from age 7-13. Bunny said so herself on the t.v. show, the father would not do the interview, their Kids are now trying to sing, Either Randy or James daughter just signed with Babyface. so I ask if you would please readup on it before you go saying something about what you don't know. I'm a Debarge fan until the end. I have all the original's I still have switch's "There will never be" on a 45, I might be telling my age but so what.

kisha said...

stop talking shit on the debarges..period...they are known to have the best family talent in the world and whatever they are going thru at the moment...just pray for them instead of judging them


damn

some of you people are dumb than a bucket of rocks

Anonymous said...

El was my boy. And yes he does smoke rock, and drink, and take somas, and anything else unhealthy. He was loosing his mind before he went in. He was on the run. I know he tried to kill me a few times, and did some really messed up things...but believe it or not, I love this brother, and I see nothing but good for his future. He is incredible talented (and gay, but that's another story) It feels so good to talk about him because I miss him and love him. I hope his family learns from his mistakes and gets the fuck out of Reseda and back home to stardom,if not stardom, then health. FUCK YOU MELANIE for being a hoe and not knowing how to care for a genius like him, and fuck all you crack head bitches for using him till the end. I love you, El. I'll see you when you get home.

I have LOVED this group, "loved" this man since I was a child... I am saddened by the revelations of the turmoil and history of the family behind the colorful clothes, big hair and fantasy land of fame and stardom...all that glitters isn't gold but God is a real SUPASTAR and healer!We are so quick to judge...what I pray for all his children, family, fans and "haters" is for undertanding and compassion and empathy. We should wish for and pray for the best in people, pray for healing rather than revel in the shortcomings. My first "true" love as a child was El Debarge and as I listen to the music of the group (DeBarge) today.. my memories are still golden and blissful. The reality of this world is that some of us get caught up..."we fall down but(can)get back up. My prayers go out to him, his children, family and fans. I am a no one and stranger to him and them (Debarge) but he/they have been so much apart of my life! June 4, 2009~ Happy Birthday El!! Regardless of the unfortunate circumstances and your current location... God is bringing ya through and HE has a plan!!! --MLC

3. I understand ppl want to start a family, but damn not start a community. Doesn't have lik 10 or 11 kids.

[FACT] They are mixed; black and white. I believe it was Vibe Magazine who did a special on them. Thats how I found out he was on crack. -smh =[[

I wasnt thought of when they came out and when they were active. My mom was barely thought of. I think they came out in lik 1979 so she wud be like...6 years old. But yea. He needs to let the crack go...He's 5"10...aged pretty well...he does have 11 kids... I still havent changed my opinion on him...Im not a hoe nor do i give it up but ....he can still get the panties. lol 3 months 2 weeks i'll be 18 lol. Keith Sweat....headed ur way too. They aged so well.

first and formost El is much so a man, he will come back, 1st we must love ourselves and I wish people would stop putting them in a catagory of being black, his father was white and mother was black, they are bi-racial, but to fit into society and to stardom they put them in the catagory of Black, which they are not

I love the Debarges. I wish them nothing but love, peace and much success. We will pray for El that he gets well and bring us some of his sweet silky ballads...love him!

Anonymous said...

El is NOT gay, but what I love about El is that he is kind enough and respectful enough to not insult anyone who is gay. He is a stand up man. He knows he made a lot of mistakes while he was using and takes full responsibility for them. He is making ammends to those he has wounded by staying clean. El is taking care of himself one day at a time and staying close to supportive people who want nothing but the best for him. El is not a diva and you wont ever see him act rude or mean to any one like some of the comments posted here. If El had known better he would have done better. Second Chance is what he is all about now and soon we will all see and hear more from this talented man.

Anonymous said...

I love El Debarge. I will continue to pray his strenght and health. For all yall hating assholes, El is doing quite well these days. More famous than ever, appearing on everything. He came out in the open and clarified with no shame about his past (which it was NOYB anyways). I salute the man with both hands for taking his ass-whoppin without laying down & continuing doing what he do. Praise God for you brother. Ima keep uplifting u & get that Second Chance Album 2mar. You deserve that 2nd chance. Luv ya El.-------Nina Lee
