As the news of Janet Jackson's pregnancy hit the news last week, the rumors of her having a secret child with ex-husband James Debarge started to make rounds around the internet as well. While some speculated that was all they were - rumors, James confirmed to them. Shocking, isn't it?
Read on to know the full story.
Hence, her being part of another controversy does not come out as a shocker.
"Someone had contacted me. She spoke to me by email," James said. "The first time was two years ago. I have not been able to directly see her face-to-face." This woman told him that she was Jackson's daughter.
"She called me 'papa,'" DeBarge says. "She didn't want to get her mom in trouble. She wanted to do it quietly. She didn't even want Janet to know."
"I hadn't known [that Janet had a baby]… not for sure," James 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."
