"I Just Want Her To Know I'm Her Father!": Janet Jackson's Ex-Husband James DeBarge Believes The Two Have A Child Together, Reports Say

Date December 3, 2019 15:22

Like most Hollywood women, Janet Jackson has had her fair share of marriages, and her first husband was singer James Curtis DeBarge.

The duo tied the knot in 1984 but short-lived as they split the following year. At the time of their marriage, Janet was just 18 years old. During the course of their marriage, they lived at the Jackson family home in Hayvenhurst.

James DeBarge's secret child claims

Although Janet welcomed her first child in January 2017, her ex-husband is making claims that Eissa isn't the singer's first offspring as he believes she had a baby for him.

As revealed by Radar Online, DeBarge penned an emotional letter to his former wife begging her to reunite him with his lost child.

An excerpt of the note read:

I don't want to live the rest of my life, not knowing the truth. I know you have enough money to keep this secret from the whole world. The one thing I learned from you and your family is how much money can buy and keep a secret.

DeBarge explained that someone claiming to be his daughter reached out to him by email, and the things she told him are only known by Janet.

All he wants to do is find some closure and know if he is indeed her father. He adds:

I swear, I won't cause you any trouble. I don't want any money. I just want her to know I'm her father!

While speaking to the publication, a source revealed that the accusations are no surprise as Janet is known for keeping details of her life hidden.

Etterlene DeBarge agrees

James is not the only one who believes Jackson has a child with him. His mother, Etterlene DeBarge, revealed that she took a DNA test with the woman believed to be his daughter and it was a match.

The secret daughter, whose identity has been revealed as Tiffany Whyte, has a 96.7 percent match with her 'supposed grandmother.'

However, when the results presented by Etterlene were analyzed by top experts, it was suggested that there is a zero percent chance of paternity between James and Whyte.

What a strange story! Do you believe in these claims? Hopefully, the truth will all come out in due time! In any case, Janet Jackson deserves privacy. Do you agree?
