In an interview with Radar Online, James DeBarge alleges that he MIGHT have had a daughter with Janet Jackson. He says that he was approached by a young woman who said that she’s their daughter. DeBarge says he hasn’t met this woman in person.
DeBarge says there has been talk of a paternity test, but it hasn’t happened yet. The woman says that her adoptive mother admitted on her deathbed that Janet and James DeBarge were her biological parents.
In the interview, James says:
“She described as much as she could tell me because she was very fearful at the time,” he continued. “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.”
He also says that he thought Janet may have been pregnant.
“I hadn’t known [that Janet had a baby]… not for sure,” he said. “I went on a search. Someone went through some serious changes to make it impossible for me to find. This had to be some serious inside work being done with the paperwork. Someone was working with them.”
