The Jacksons and the DeBarge Family are both musical royalty and many rejoiced in the union of Janet Jackson and James DeBarge by their marriage in 1984.  At the time Jackson was 18 and three years junior to DeBarge. A year later their marriage was annulled.

Since their annulled marriage many speculated whether or not they had a child and with little to no proof, many passed it off as a rumor.  Earlier this month, Jackson announced that she was pregnant with her “first child” with her third husband Wissam Al Mana.

Earlier this week, DeBarge broke his silence insisting the young couple did conceive a baby but Jackson did not tell him when she was born and later given away. DeBarge claims he never believed her otherwise he would have searched for her and been a part of her life.

Their alleged child reached out to DeBarge through email after many other people were claiming to be her in the press. Growing up she claims that she never knew who her parents were, but instead lived a normal life. She claims when her adoptive mother was on her deathbed, she told her who her biological parents were.

Janet Jackson has not released any public statements regarding the matter.
