James DeBarge Confirms Long Rumored Secret Baby with Janet Jackson?


For years there have been rumors that Janet Jackson secretly gave birth to a child that was raised by an unnamed member of the Jackson family, a product of Janet's brief marriage to James DeBarge back in the 80s [click here if you missed that].

James DeBarge adds new fuel to the rumors...

James tells Radar Online a young woman reached out to him claiming to be his and Janet Jackson's long lost daughter.

James DeBarge tells Radar
“Someone had contacted me. She spoke to me by email. The first time was two years ago. I have not been able to directly see her face-to-face.”
“She was angry because another child was trying to come forward and say that she was our child. So she did out of anger.”
“She described as much as she could tell me because she was very fearful at the time. She was very angry about people running with this story about this [other child] being my baby. She got very angry. She’s like, ‘Papa I want to help you out.’ She had so much of personality and she was so accurate with everything she was saying, it was only things that I and Janet know. No one else but god, me and Janet.”

This rumor has plagued Janet and been around long before social media.

What happens in the dark comes out in the light. If this is true there should be reciepts surfacing shortly.

Hell, I would've came forward once MJ died just to cash out on the publicity alone.

Janet was noticeably pregnant back then, and then, she disappeared for a while. That's back when she was on the Fame television show. What happened to the baby? God only knows.

One of the Aunts or older Sisters raised the child.
As time passes by, and more and more stories come out. I think something occurred.
Things were A LOT different in the 80's.
Didnt have TMZ following people around.

It was said that Janet was pregnant for James. At the time she didn't tell him, she wasn't showing yet. Her father had her on the "road" away from James. This was so she could have the child and gave it away. When she came back home, she was noticeably heavier.

I don't understand James. He rambles on so much. Why was she afraid to speak to her own father? Why an email and not a direct phone call with James?

I thought Rebbie raised the child? Gosh their family thrives of secrets. Damn that Joe and Catherine for enabling him.

Janet was SO PLUMP in the face and tying sweaters around her stomach. Something happened.

I don't understand why this young lady is fearful... she's grown. James is a paranoid type himself. Maybe that's just his interpretation...maybe she's just hurt and shy of the public. Not necessarily in fear?

Maybe this is just some bull sheit!!!! Carry on with your lives.

@1054 - ding,ding,ding

You are correct. Video can't be found today but Rebbie confirmed this on the Phil Donahue show back in the late 80s.

This is shitty journalism..he talked but didnt really say anything....

Did he talk to Janet...did he do a dna test with this caller?

Anonymous said...

I call bullshit. Drug addled James will say anything for that next score. He's going to hit up all the tabloids for money while Janet is pregnant to keep this story going. That man is feening for his next hit.

They elope without telling their families and married then a year later the marriage was anulled.

Janet always played that cute and innocent role always speaking in that baby whisper voice when she did interviews.
Everyone has a skeleton bone or two in their closet.

Btw, the Debarge family and Jackson family were close.

First of all, when did James get out the pen? Remember he was locked up with Chris Brown lol Second of all, James probably got a check from Radar for this interview (of which will be spent on cocaine) finally, Janet has been pregnant SEVERAL times. It was rumored she even had kid/s with Jermaine Dupri whom are being raised outside of the spotlight. Janet full of secrets.

Janet's Brother raised that damn baby. They same baby was in the magazine family photo spread with all the Jackson's offsprings back in the 90s looking just like Janet identical twin sitting with the other damn mixed looking grand kids.

This should come as NO surprise to those who are old enough to remember Janet in the 80s. Janet KNOWS how to keep secrets! This is the same woman who hid her marriage to Rene Alizondo for almost a decade! And the only reason the marriage was exposed by her was because she was getting a divorce! LaToya spilled the beans on that back in the day. But no one believed LaToya and called her "crazy."

im confused, if he was married to her at the time, wouldn't he know if she was pregnant? This story happened before my time, but why is there so much mystery around this topic, did Janet all of a sudden go missing for 9 mos in the 80s? Help me to understand..

@1:24 Latoya is crazy.

He said "She spoke to me by email". Huh? What? I smell a fresh pile of shit!

I would love to see what she -the alleged daughter- looks like. Then again, anybody that thinks they look like you can claim to be related to you. It happens.

@ 1:43 PM, It's easy. Get pregnant, keep your mouth shut, and leave to take care of business (make arrangements for secret birth and adoption or abortion) before he finds out what's really going on or before the belly starts growing. Stay away from him and any and everybody else that doesn't need to know what's going on until the situation is straight and never break your silence. Then go on about your life and live happily ever after. Families probably do this kind of secret squirrel shit all the time. Send the daughter off to give birth and pretend the child(ren) belong to somebody else. Auntie may really be mommy. Shit gets real funky at family gatherings.

Janet and James did have a baby I remember when she was on Fame they kept covering her stomach them she left the show,she and James was in the Jet magazine talking about their happy marriage clearly she was showing. I think years of drugs abuse have James brains fuzzy he know he had a baby with Janet he just can't get the timing right also Popa Joe scared the shit out of him. You can find Jets on line but u can't find that one.
