Janet Jackson Addresses Secret Baby Rumor

For years there have been rumors that Janet Jackson was hiding a baby from her brief marriage to James DeBarge [click here if you missed that]. 

For the first time Janet addresses the rumors....

In her new docuseries 'Janet' airing on A&E Friday night Janet Jackson says, 

"First they were saying my niece Brandi was my daughter and that I gave her to [brother] Jackie to raise and then because Randy's daughter looks so much like me, they started saying it was Stevanna." 
"When I was doing 'Fame,' a lot of the kids thought I was pregnant because I had gained weight and I started taking birth control pills. Back then, you could pick up weight taking them and that's what happened to me."
"So that rumor started going around. How could I keep a child from their father? I could never do that. That's not right."

Fun Fact: In 2016 James DeBarge announced that someone had contacted him claiming to be his and Janet's long lost child [click here if you missed that].
