James DeBarge is Once Again Claiming He & Janet Jackson Have a Secret Daughter 

Thanks 



Singer James DeBarge is claiming once again that he believes he has a love child with Janet Jackson.

This is not the first time the 1990s DeBarge family band member has made this allegation

In a previous interview with RadarOnline, DeBarge said a young woman contacted him and told him Janet gave up her up for adoption after giving birth. The alleged daughter said it happened following Janet’s short-lived marriage to James.

The “Rhythm Nation” singer eloped with DeBarge in 1984, but the marriage was annulled in 1985.

In a newly released clip from WE TV‘s reality tv show, Growing Up Hip Hop, 53-year-old DeBarge tells his actual daughter Kristinia that he has a secret daughter with Janet after Kristina confronted him with news accounts of a secret child. 

“I’m tired of the secrecy,” DeBarge tells his daughter when she confronts him about an article she read in which he discusses the claims. “I’m tired of the truth not coming forward, and people being a coward when it comes to it. And I thought it was wise for me to speak out now because it needs to be addressed.”

He says he thought it was s lie but us convinced it is true.

“To be honest with you, I didn’t know,” he continues. “I was under the impression that there was no baby, and I wanted to believe it’s not true. But it is.”

People have attempted to link three of Janet’s nieces to the secret child claim. They allege  each niece was given up to be raised by Janet’s siblings as their own.

The dates of each don’t add up. 

First, rumors have existed for decades suggesting that her brother Jackie Jackson’s daughter Brandi with Jackie’s now deceased wife Enid was Janet’s secret child.

Brandi was born in 1982 when Janet was 16 and hadn’t started dating James yet.

Second, there are also lots of claims that Randy Jackson‘s daughter, Stevanna, a Harvard MBA grad and actress, is Janet’s daughter. 

But, Stevanna is 26 and was born in 1990, five years after James and Janet split. There is no incubation period that long for a human child. 

Others have said the child was being raised by her older sister Rebbie (Maureen) Jackson but the daughter that resembles Janet most, Stacee, is 45-years old so….negative there too. 

Possibly, the woman who contacted James was trying to make a false claim to a fat inheritance because if she really was James’ child, a simple DNA test would prove it. 

Most likely, 50-year old Janet, is really about to give birth to her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana after years of trying to conceive with her 44-year old spouse. 

The singer’s big pregnancy news came after she announced in April that she would be postponing her tour to start a family.

Janet Jackson Couldn’t Escape Pregnancy Without Papps Putting her on Blast

Janet Jackson was trying her darndest to lay low and off the public radar as she incubated her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana but nope, she couldn’t escape the prying eyes of the camera as successfully as other celebs who had stealth pregnancies have been able to. (See Lauren London, Dido, Laura Finney, or any of these)

Entertainment Tonight has photos of the pop star emerging from a children’s furniture store called Back In Action in London. In the photos, the “Design of a Decade” album singer is seen emerging from the store after a 45-minute visit with some bags in hands wearing dark sweatpants, a black sweater with matching scarf and headband.

Her bodygard, assistant and two other people make up her entourage and she even smiled a little at the cameras as she entered into the car. Staff greeted her at the door, seated at her at a table and went over some merchandise, including a pram she took interest in, ET reported.

Although she has never spoken about the pregnancy before, her brother confirmed she was carrying the baby and not using a surrogate as many suspected (and still do) and her sister said LaToya Jackson told ET earlier this month that Janet is,”resting” and “doing fabulous.”

The last round of media reports had to do with speculation that her baby was in danger due to the “Unbreakable” singer’s advanced maternal age, 50. But we know that bedrest for high risk pregnancies is common and not any piece of BIG NEWS!

Baby is believed to be due in November. This is her first child and her husband’s as well. There is a long existing rumor that she had a child within her very short marriage to singer James Debarge years ago and that the baby, a girl, was raised by one of her brothers as his own. There is nothing to substantiate those wild claims, however.

Jackson announced this past April plans to postpone her world tour to start a family.

“I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour,” she explained in a video posted to Twitter on April 6. “Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now. I have to rest up, doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”

Godspeed for a healthy remaining pregnancy, labor and delivery, Janet! We’re pulling for you, ma!

Janet Jackson is Planning a Family; Not all World Tour Fans Happy with the News

Janet Jackson is starting her family and the news is not sitting too well with all of her fans.

This morning, on her Twitter account and Facebook accounts, she announced to them that she will be halting the second leg of the tour to support her 11th album, “Unbreakable”, to “plan” a family.

 

“We’re in the second leg of the tour, and there actually has been a sudden change. I thought it was important that you be the first to know,” she said. “My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.”

Not all replied to the news with joy and congratulations. Some expressed disappointment because it has been over a decade since the youngest of the popular musical Jackson family released an album or went on tour. She had previously delayed to start of the Summer 2015 when her dad was temporarily ill and then delayed it again, mid-tour, when she was advised to have surgery last December 2015.

One commenter on her Facebook version of the announcement wrote: “Why plan a tour for a specific year and for specific dates if you know you were wanting to start a family? Congratulations to you and your husband and I send my best wishes to you both but I still think it’s extremely unfair that us UK fans missed out on seeing you and it’s obvious those dates won’t be rescheduled as we got our money back. It’s not really fair is it?”

Another wrote: “Starting a family the same year you come out with a new album after 7 years of silence. Great choice. I wish you all the best in your life but your credibility has gone honey. You sound like a robot btw. I have a feeling your husband is owning you, really hope i’m wrong. So long.”

Jackson plead for understanding in her video.

“Please, if you can, try to understand that it’s important that I do this now,” she continued. “I have to rest up; doctor’s orders. But I have not forgotten about you. I will continue the tour as soon as I possibly can.”

Jackson turns 50 this May. At that advanced age, Jackson’s doctor is correct to recommend she rest up. This is the case whether it is to ease the chances of her becoming pregnant, if she is undergoing IVF (in vitro fertilization) or other treatment to conceive herself or avoid a miscarriage or other complications, if she is already pregnant.

She did not confirm whether she is actually preggers on the video.

Many other fans supported her decision and admonished those who were not as supportive.

“Congratulations Janet!!! A baby any fan who can’t understand that isn’t worth having. I’ve been a fan sinve I was a little girl and i love the idea of Janet Jackson having a legacy not only in music and entertainment but life for you i hope you allow us to enjoy this miracle with you. Love always and forever #RhythmNation #JanetJacksonlegacy” a respondent commented.

Jackson is married to Arab fashion tycoon Wissam Al Mana. This is her third marriage. She was married very briefly to James DeBarge in her early 20s and for a longer period of time to Rene Eizondo. Neither of those marriages produced any children.

Before this third delay, the tour, Pollster listed i among one of the top 20 highest-earning tours, BBC notes.

Unlike previous tours where the platinum selling singer wears and arrangement of sexy and revealing clothing, she has performed fully covered during this tour as her husband is from a Muslim country where modesty is mandatory for women.

Congrats, Janet!
