: Oh boy, not this again. MediaTakeOut.com has learned that in last week's issue of Jet Magazine, Etterline DeBarge (the mother of Eldra, Chico and James DeBarge) spoke tangentially about the secret love child of Janet Jackson and James DeBarge.
Here's what Jet Magazine reported:
Etterlene also addresses the marriage between Janet and James Debarge and whether the two of them had a child. She says, James has four kids now. "James refuses to say anything. Magazines offered him big money to say stuff. He could be rich, but he would not do it. He would rather be broke. He's very, very loyal to Janet. She really loved him and he really loved her." Interestingly, she doesn't deny the existence of a grandchild.
That girl looks like Janet, Boriqua style. But shouldn't their love child be a little bit older. I believe by 1988 they had already broken up. She should be at least 22 going on 23.
Save your neighborhoods, START SNITCHING!!!!
Of course Mama DeBarge would say something like that. She's trying to peddle her book and her kids are broke... She needs to stir up some kind of controversy to get her and her kids' names back out in the media.
When will the "media" see through the lies and fabrications that their counterparts spread?
I dont understand why they would have hid the fact that they had a kid in the first place. Like who does that? If there really is a kid she will be talkn soon to get some of that money her daddy claim he dont want. NEXT!!
IF thats her child then she is wrong wrong wrong for doing that to her..but if she isint then MOther Debarge needs to shut up and get over it..I have heard this a long time ago, i dont know..that Janet can keep a secret..
The article is in Jet and I just read it yesterday. Mrs. DeBarge meant that her son was offered a lot of money for interviews to speak about Janet and he wouldn't do it. As ususal, MTO has distorted her words.
I don't know if Janet has a child or not but I do remember in the 80s how big she became. Janet was real big there for a while and I' not talking chubby. Her face and body were like a blimp.
If there is or was a child, it is all for career reasons that it is being hidden. Janet realized she made a mistake with a young marriage and went on with her life and became quite successful. That's the way it is in Hollywood.
IF YALL REMEMBER THAT EBONY OR WAS IT ESSENCE MAGAZINE...SOMENODY HELP ME OUT I CANT REMEMBER IF IT IS EBONY OR ESSENCE WHERE ALL THE JACKSON'S ARE ALL TOGETHER WITH THEIR PARENTS. ITS WHEN 2300 JACKSON STREET CAME OUT. ANYHOW, THERE IS A LITTLE GIRL KIND OF CHOCOLATE SITTING ON TITO OR JERMAINES LAP. SHE HAS BANGS AND HER DOWN IN THE BACK LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE JANET. UNDER THE PIC I DONT RECALL THEM STATING WHO SHE WAS. BUT THE OTHER CHILDREN THEY SAID THEIR NAMES AND WHO THEIR PARENTS WERE. I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT WAS THE CHILD. ANYHOW THIS CHILD HAS THOSE JACKSON EYES...BUT THE OTHER CHILD IN THAT OLD ISSUE OF WHATEVER MAGAZINE WAS THE SPITTING IMAGE OF JANET SOMEONE CHECK IT OUT MTO YALL FIND IT AND POST IT. WELL NAAW DONT POST IT THIS IS FAM BIZNESS IF SHE WANTED US ALL IN HERS I GUESS SHE WOULDVE TOLD THE WORLD BY NOW RIGHT.
The girl resembles Janet a lot. However, that could be due to family DNA.
Also, we've known Hollywood to hold a lot of secrets over the years. Jack Nicholson didn't find out his own sister was actually his mother until he was almost 40 years old.
Janet needs to quit her bullshit. That girl is supposedly Jackie's adopted daughter. If she's adopted, why in the hell does she look like Reebie (all of the girls did before the knife). She knows she was knocked up when they kicked her off of "Fame." But then she got "Control" and had a nice ride until tittygate.
Well if this true maybe Janet wants to protect her child from the prying eyes of the public. She is definitely a beautiful child.
Some people just are not made to parent children even those who have kids and make an attempt.
At least Janet recognizes that without causing damage to her child.
All of you saying she looks nothing like Janet so maybe she isint hers, are y'all serious?? I look nothing like my mother matter of fact ppl ask me if she is my real mother, but she is..coz we all know there is no written law about lookin like your mama or your daddy
It's true. And it is old news.Her words might have been twisted in this document but that girl is their child. The whole DeBarge clan grandchildren included are washed up druggies who will never amount to anything so they make money off one another or in tell all books lol.
Well I am not saying she does or doesn't haveone but if she does who cares?!! That is btwn Janet, James, and their child if theyhave one. Myionly thing is this has been something spoke about for a long time and I would like to knwo if it's ture. But I wouldn't go trying to dig up dirt on it. That mess is 19 years old if ture. Let's talk about the 2008 Presidential election.
sorry MTO but I'm gonna need some MORE PROOF! I don't know if this story is true or not. But why would Janet not own up to a child? Janet has said that she wants kids and she LOVES kids. So why would she hide having a kid. That girl does kinda look like her.....a little...maybe, but where did yall get that picture from? This story is probably BOGUS coming from MTO anyway.
I don't see why she'd hide a child from the world, but then again alot of crazy stuff has gone down with the Jacksons. But how come nobody ever saw Janet pregnant around that time?? You mean the mega star she was at the time she hid a prenancy? She was always but so big so I'm sure that would have been noticable.
@FelonysHobby, THANK YOU for actually using your head and THINKING for once. Cats are so GULLABLE on these sites. If MTO printed a story that said "Ya mamma is on the moon". Heads would be posting about "Damn, I show'll miss my mamma" etc.
Janet was 17 in 1983 when her marriage got annulled with James, so that would make the child 23-24, NOT 19!! And Mrs. Debarge's statement is ambiguous as hell (unclear). She could have been asked a question like "So whats your stance on the long going rumor that your son and Janet had a child?" Her reply:"James refuses to say anything. Magazines offered him big money to say stuff. He could be rich, but he would not do it. He would rather be broke. He's very, very loyal to Janet. She really loved him and he really loved her." Let us not forget the media will pay you to COSIGN their inaaccurate stories. Last clue that this story is BS. In this day and age of the NOSEY *SS MEDIA, if Janet had a child it would not have went this long without being exposed. WAKE UP BLACK PEOPLE AND QUIT BEING SO GOT DAMN GULLABLE!
Hurt- Who said that's the girl's real age? Why would they discolose her real age if they don't want the rumor to get out. You think pple in hollywood havent done this before? I mean seriously this from a woman who was married for 8yrs and no one knew. so who is to say she wouldn't do this either? no one is perfect but both of those families go hand in hand with keeping secrets.
That photo is not of Janet and James DeBarge but is of Janet and her other ex-husband Rene!!!
I guess you all are too young to notice that.
Janet is a living legend. . . otherS should give her, her due credit. There would be no Beyonce, no Ciara and no Brittney had there not been a JANET JACKSON!
I heard about this in like 1985. It's true and Reebe raised her. Joe wouldn't let it go down, for the sake of Janet's career. Janet nor James should have let it go down like that. A real parent would have never denied there child. James is so loyal to Janet, what about his Jazmine Guy looking child.
If you want to see how much that girl looks like Janet, go to u-tube and look at the 2300 Jackson Street video. She's the one with all the hair sitting on Michael's lap. That girl looks just like Reebie!
If Janet lied about being married 10 years, why wouldn't she conceal a child, especially if that would mean she would have to be bothered with the DeBarge family?
@TruthofDaMatter Your talking about to Rene Elizondo? Was it a secret? That marriage was known and what did Janet do?? SHE ADMITTED IT (marriage). So, why wouldnt she admit that she has a child? THE WOMAN WILL BE 42, why she gotta lie? Now tell the truth and Shame the Devil what person in the media would not press Ole Lady Debarge for more info afer making a statement like that?? To make an honest assessment we must read the WHOLE article and trust me if the rest of that article had any damning info about Janet you better believe it woulda been in the article above. Makes no sense, but you keep on believing everything the media print.
That picture came out 3 years ago. Even though the caption says 19, she's about 22-23 now. Even though MTO tends to stretch the truth I believe them on this one because other sites have been reporting this story for years. There are several other pictures of Janet's "niece" out there where she looks just like Janet.
It's sad that Janet doesn't even acknowledge her daughter's own existence. The Jacksons have always been ass-backwards when it comes to kids and sh1t. Look at Michael, there's no way that those kids are his. And look at how long Joe Jackson hid that love child that he had with some groupie. The truth about that is JUST NOW coming out. And that chick who has two kids by two of the Jackson brothers? Janet dropping a kid and then handing it over to her sister to raise doesn't seem far fetched at all.
Not only that, but the fact that she was young and married out of wed-lock would not look right in the Jackson family eyes and definitely may not look right in the eyes of her fans. That girl was at the height of her career and yall KNOW how daddy jackson was. Dont fock with his money (janet).
Her marriage to that guy didn't come out until it was nearly over. You heard about her marriage to him when it happened? Her marriage did not come out until he filed for divorce in 2000. So di you have some inside tip to them being married? Srry but I am not talking about the media. i am talking bout the industry and I know how that works. There are MANY people out there who have kids and won't admit to it. It's all about image. Sad BUT true Her age has noting to do with it. She can be 60 years old and still lie. She's not above it because she's in the industry. And it would look VERY bad on her to admit to it now. Back then she listened to and was influenced by her family.
And yes thats her Ex Husband Rene, NOT James Debarge and you IDIOTS are speaking on this story like it has some validity. TOLD YOU! This is Janet and James Debarge http://www.geocities.com/elwoodmusic/james-janet.html
I'm sick of Janet and her secrets. If she has a child and wants to deny it then so be it. The best part is "WE DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER FOR HER ON JUDGEMENT DAY" She likes to expose all her body parts (things most folk keep private) but children and marriages (which are blessings) she wants to keep it on the hush... Ok Ms. Jackson!
well come on wit it!!.lol. but if janet really does have a child its really sad that she doesnt acknowledge her and that her career and reputation was more important then being a mother. im like this janet is 40 something now, just come out with.................then go into hiding so u dont have to do interviews.lol.
I BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE IS JUST PROTECTING THE DAUGHTER. IT'S NOT ABOUT PROTECTING JANET. AND JANET SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF FOR NOT BEING WOMAN ENOUGH TO CLAIM OR ACKNOWLEDGE HER CHILD. (IF THIS IS TRUE) CAN YOU IMAGINE THE DRAMA THIS GIRL (DAUGHTER) WILL BE STIRRED UP IN IF IT WERE TO COME OUT THAT SHE IS INDEED JANET JACKSON'S DAUGHTER? HER LIFE WOULD COMPLETELY CHANGE. AND MOST LIKELY... NOT FOR THE BETTER EITHER.
SO IF THIS IS TRUE WHERE WAS THIS KID ALL THESE YEARS??? DID CHICO AND HIS FAMILY RAISE HER???
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE BIG DEAL IS, IT'S NOT 1942 WHEN IT WAS FROWNED UPON TO HAVE A CHILD OUT OF WEDLOCK.
WELL HISTORY HAS SHOWED US JANET HAS SOME SKELETONS IN HER CLOSET....SO KUD THIS STORY BE TRUE???? SURE.
I am so going to stop looking at Media Take Out. THAT IS JANET JACKSON-DEBARGE,ELIZONDO'S NIECE. That is Jackie Jackson daughter. And before my black people go all "Janet gave the baby to him" The niece isn't old enough to be Janet's daughter, because she and James married in 1984 and divorced oops annulled in 1985.
You guys are forgetting this "so called" child. Where is she? She cant speak? Shes be on HUSH all this time huh? That girl would feel abandoned if Rebbie had raised her and she would be bitter, write a tell all book or give an interview. I heard the Rebbie raised Janets child rumor Long ago too but I dont believe rumors, I could never get the story substantiated so I left it alone. Yes people knew Rene and Janet were married just like they knew her sister Latoya and that shady Gordon cat were married. Lastly, if janet did have a baby a long time ago then... THATS HER BUSINESS!!!
y do people find this so hard to believe? What kind of pedestal do you guys have her on. Jus like Mike claiming those snow cone kids are his. she can't deny a child? Us regular pple view things a hellofa lot diff from "celebs"
MTO needs to get the photos and facts straight.
1.the picture shown is of janet and renee elizondo, the one she was married to for 13 years.
2. janet was first married to Chico DeBarge and there daughter would be at least 22 or 23 years old. The daughter they have looks just like janet jackson, that story came out yearssssssssssssssss ago. MTO you are very late on news, at least give the story respect and post the right pictures of the people you are talking about.
how bout it.........................
I dont find it hard to believe. However, I find it hard to substantiate. Its obvious your a Janet hater so you want it to be true. TRUTHOFDAMATTER is that IF its true she has a child WITH HER HUSBAND. How many of you heffas on this site can say that? She aint got nothing to be ashamed of. Ole miserable people love company, I swear.
No one reeembers on Hot97 a few yrs ack that debarge dude going on the radio and confirming that they did have achild together? So how false could it be if a family memebr already confirmed it?
ok, let's be real now...if this wasn't a money issue than why insist on speaking out again?.....if that lovely young lady is really janet's daughter than shame on her gor all this mess, i know men day in & day out refuse their kids but for a mother to disown her kid just pittiful...anyways sooner or ltr this will all come into the light
some people do have secret love children. ie Rockwell.
I dont think it is her child anyway. the girl looks like janet.
remember, janet had alot of surgery. so how could the daughter look more like post surgery mom. than Pre surgery mom
You cite an article WITH NOT ONE QUOTE! Laughable! and who is YOUNG DEBARGE??? Your reasoning makes no sense. Jakie, Tito, Rebbie, Jermaine and Marlon all had children early but yet the Jackson family wants to CONCEAL Janets child (but NOT THE MARRIAGE) Everyone knew she was married to James Debarge. You guys are so out of the loop that you are speaking on events without having proper knowledge. MTO posts a flick of Rene Elizondon and 50 people responded to it before it was disclosed that it wasnt James in the picture. This is the state we are in... IGNORANCE
You are out of the loop. This was all over the place a few years ago. You call us out of the loop yet you have no idea who young is.
Use google- It's useful tool. You will find this info all over the place.
Janet was a girl... he youngest girl. Jeremaine Marlon and Tito never had the solo fame that Janet had. So reasoning makes perfect sense. Heck where are they now? And where is she?
MTO your headlines and stories are so bootleg sometimes.
1. That is not a picture of any Debarge man that is a picture of Renee. That is Renee Janets second husband. What does he have to do with your story?
2. You have the age really of the kid off by a few years.
3. You don't have a quote from anybody????? WTF MTO???
LOL Anybody can have a site now a days if all you have to do is make up headlines and don't have anything to support it. You guys have been real weak this year. Step your stories up.
TRUTHOFDAMATTER: "who is young" MEANING WHO IS HE? WHAT HAS HE DONE? NOTHING!! The most famous debarge is EL Debarge, followed by Chico and James their sister. Yes Janet was a girl, what Rebbie wasnt a girl? And Janet was NOT a solo star at the time of her marriage/"pregnancy". Her last gig was Different Strokes and she was NOT A BIG STAR at the time. Again, Substantiate this story. Before I believe it you got to provide proof. Why is that so hard? BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO PROOF ALL YOU HAVE IS CONJECTURE. So "miss me" with all the hearsay.
I don't believe this lame story. I can't believe Janet Jackson would have a child and deny that child all this time....why would she have to? I don't believe a darn thing MTO says anymore! Next........................... :D
He's a member of the family that's who he is. Wouldn't a family member know best of what's going on in their family? So if someone in your family told you something you wouldn't believe it?
What does fame have to do with knowing what goes on in your family? You're losing me here seriously.So you have to be famous to hold some weight as to what goes on in your family? I'm confused.
How famous was Reebie? Where is Reebie now? Reebie was the oldest girl. Janet was the youngest girl. You seem to know a lot about Janet. Do you know how over protective they were of her. Or how they had plans for Janet in terms of having a solo career?
Everytime you post you show you have the intelligence of a lady bug. I know alot about Janet? I seem to know alot about Janet, the Jacksons and the Debarge family. Unlike you POSTING ON RENE (THOUGHT HE WAS JAMES;DUMDUM)
Me stating "WHO IS YOUNG" means just that, who is he? I'm not saying that because hes not famous he cant be heard. I'm saying how do I know he said that?? I didnt see a quote. Substantiate your claims. Problem is you CANT! You go by conjecture and misinformation, thats why you were speaking on Rene as if he was James. Shows lack of intelligence and understanding and is very wreckless. Rebbie had a career before Janet (Centipede) but got married, settled down to raise her family. And lesser famous siblings lie on more famous siblings LL THE TIME, its called JEALOUSY. You know that emotion your feeling in regards to Janet???
Also to correct you on some things. Janet was known. She was on goodtimes from 77-79 She was on a show called A New Kind Of Family. She was on more than one episode of DIff Strokes between the yrs of 80-84 and then she did Fame. So she was out there.
But you are entitled to believe what you want as am I. So instead of spewing insults like you . I will say I respect your opinion.
This is NOT Janet's daughter. This is her brother Jackie's adopted daughter Brandi. This is an old picture of Brandi, when she appeared on ABC to with her brother Dealz(Siggy) to talk about Michael's case years back. She is now about 26 years old. I have been following the Jacksons for years. This I do know for a fact.
I never said she wasn't famous. I said how famous is she now. Reebie was never as famous as Janet.
When did I say anything about the picture being James? I spoke of the article.
Young stated what he said on a radio interview. Hence why it was reported by all these sites. That's how it got out again bc of an interview he did.
What do I have to be jealous of? Why is it when someone goes against the grain. The only words that can be used to uphold that are "hate" or "jealousy"
I never said I hated her. Or anything close.
Since you know so much about all the families mentioned. Why would you say Chico was the second most popular one and never mention Bunny?
The point in me bringing those things up is bc you said she wasn't out there at the time of her pregnancy. When clearly she was.
I know who those two men are. I really can't help but laugh. Because you really have no clue.
that family should let this one, go.
janet is good at hiding things like marraiges and being over weight.
plus their mother should be asshamed that their white father was molesting these mixed kids for years. she should talk about that so the healing will continue for the debarges' kids.
I didnt mention bunny? Let me explain something to you. I KNOW about those families as evidenced by my posts. You google to know about them as it is clearly evidenced by your posts. My quote was "The most famous debarge is EL Debarge, followed by Chico and James their sister" THIER SISTER WOULD BE BUNNY". Mouth in OVERDRIVE/BRAIN IN NEUTRAL. Lastly, the word HATER derived from being jealous. People are liars when they say " I aint no hater" EVERYONE HATES TO A CERTAIN DEGREE. Jealousy is an emotion thag God gave to all of us. I would like to say that I respect your opinion but your opinion is based on erroneous pictures ( thats rene/not james; dont front you thought that was him), unsubstantiated rumors and information "allegedly" provided by a member of the family whos agenda is not clear. How credible is young Debarge? Whats his history? All of these unknowns render your opinion to be baseless as I have so eloquently chronicled.
Yes.....James and Janet DID have a daughter....back when Papa Joe first ran James off, I use to see him and his brother El at Tone-Loc's house....and they spoke about the daughter all the time.....Apparently, the daughter was handed over to Rebe to raise...and the child was raised thinking Rebe was her mother....I dont know if the daughter knows BY NOW who her real mother is...and yes she is the little girl sitting on Michael's lap in the 2300 Jackson Street video.
Um...am I the only one who thinks she looks like a combo of James & Bunny DeBarge?? I dont see any Jackson features in her...but I really like the DeBarge family..I hope El gets himself cleaned up & maybe put out a new cd lol..And mto shame on u! James & Rene look nothing alike...yall stupid forreal! Idk what to say about this story tho..oh I will say Mama DeBarge need to go somewhere & sit down..quit worryn bout Janet & pray for your kids!
No obviously from your vicious words. You do not respect my opinion. So please don't say that now, it deems useless.
The only thing I googled were the articles.I actually like Janet and I knew about those shows because I wathed them.
How can I post a radio interview?Unless I google the transcript of that day.
That was years ago. Young is James' brother and unless he tells lies on his own brother then sobeit. But they are not estranged and Young said in the articles that he stands by what he said.
I didn't have to google he family. Bunny is more popular than Chico-which is why I mentioned it. I'm sorry but you're mistaken. I am not jealous of Janet. If you actually read my comment about her you'd see that. I am speaking of how messed up the situation is because of what she was pressured into doing. And like I said before. If she came out with it now-it would make her look horrible.
Obviously you cant read because I did NOT say I respect your opinion, because I dont. Its based on rumor and nothing concrete it has about as much substance as feathers. You think Bunny is more popular, I say again, your opinion. I say Chico is and I will substantiate this. Please read this board and see whos name is mentioned the most Chicos or Bunny's. I do believe Chicos name is mentioned more than ANY other Debarge family member (even more than the star EL). Now please substantiate how Bunny is more popular.
El DeBarge aint hardly broke. He is a great producer and he does alot of stuff under a ghost name. And maybe Janet just wanted her child to have a normal life growing up. Who knows that is somethng she will have to deal with. Can't these blogs be for something besides negative spin and gossip.
That young lady is janet's neice. It has been said over and over again for years that is Jackie's daughter Brandi Jackson. And the DeBarge's may not be making hits, but they are not broke. Do you know how many people sample and buy their music still even today. Trust me, they are alright. Mama DeBarge was in Jet basically to promote her book and music like so many other artists do. I read the article the other day and all she said was if there was a child they could have made alot of money to talk about it.
lol..she does look like her, but its not..where's that bell pepper ass nose she should have from her mommy OR daddy? i think that even if Janet hid the fact that she had a child, it would be so they could grow up minus the media bs..i do also think that she would have acknowledged the child as the got older...hey..who knows..?!
You're so right! I couldn't imagine denying my son! He's a pain in my azz! But he's my child and I love him to death. Janet's crazy just like her siblings everyone overlooks it because she's pretty! But she's nuttier than a pecan pie!
stay out if jail and learn basic math. the child would be at least 20 this year and it's only march.
this could be her kid. why not? if you can hide a marriage why not a child.
maybe brit can learn from her, keep your damn business to yourself.
Well I remember her getting married to James DeBarge and I remember her joking to a magazine about being pregnant, but then she took the statement back claiming she didn't want kids at the moment due to her career.
James and Janet do not have a child
Eldra is not broke
"Mama Debarge" is really not a Debarge anymore but a Rodriguez and, IMO, should not be ANYBODY'S mother!
You guys really should not get so angry with one another over these blogs.
I DON'T BELIEVE THIS! BASICALLY WHAT THE MOM WAS SAYING WAS, THEY DIDN'T WANT TO DISCUSS JANET'S PERSONAL LIFE WITH THE MEDIA! DUHHHHHHHHH! DOESN'T TAKE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO FIGURE THAT OUT! READ PEOPLE!
LAWD u people are so PHUCKIN GULLIBLE that MTO has yall believing EVERYTHING u read!
This has been a DUMB, FALSE, & STUPID AZZ RUMOR for years!!!!!
First of all, this "ALLEGED" daughter should be older than 19!!!
Secondly, with the way the MEDIA is so DOG EAT DOG its NO WAY in the world that this wasn't aired out by now!!!!!
Point blank, its a STUPID AZZ RUMOR!
And the ones believing it probably STILL believe Tupac & Elvis is alive!!! LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I belive momma De Barge just needs a lil extra cash and I belive if Janet was her mother Janet would have been in her daughters life. cuz we all know that the De Barges would be "rich" keepin a secret like that
OK, Truth and Hurt..ENOUGH ALREADY!!!! Although I thoroughly enjoyed your little back and forth, it was a bit troubling.
Hurt, you are taking this waaaaaaay too personally..I'm going to need you to get a life at some point..Seriously, and unless you're getting paid, bragging about how much you KNOW about the Jackson's and Debarge's is nothing to be proud of..it's actually kind of sad. Truth, why are you even entertaining this..but for the record, Chico was more famius than Bunny..LOL!!!!
i wish they would finally put this rumor to rest because i tired of hearing it i dont know whats up or down but the next time its reported come with the hard cold facts. she has however repeatedly denied it so Hay IT IS WHAT IT IS lmao at this leftee person last time confused (opera with oprah) and now (know with no) wtf? someone might need to go to school real soon and 600 pound said janet hid her marriage to james for 10 years but that was the wrong husband it was the RENee guy 2nd marriage
I'm the same age as Janet and I remeber she had a daughter as well. I agree that "back in those
days" it would have been quite the scandal to be in her position and pregnant. The child was probably raised by her sister to keep things
(the money) comin.
You need to get choo some business. I'm not taking anything waaaaaay to serious. I'm just making a statement of fact. IGNORANT people makes statements without having all of the facts. If you read the article in Jet, you tell me, did MTO mislead the readers by the Title of the blog? My reference to Knowledge of Debarges,Jacksons etc is not anything to be proud of, I agree. However, all around knowledge is what I profess to have and I NEVER speak of matters that I dont know anything about. She said something to me so I treated her like she was a fossgate and put her on blast. Dont you be the next victim.........
haha, I cnt believe people believe ths CRAP! u ALL knw, if it were true, NO MATTER HOW "LOYAL" Debarge is 2 Janet (tht dude BROKE) & he would take the $$$ & put the story out, ITS NOT TRUE, pls let ths die-its stupid as hell
IF THIS IS TRUE (b/c MTO is always suspect...)
Then that's very sheisty of the mother to say something indirectly like that. It's not her place to say 1 word about it. If Janet or the father wanted anyone to know about it...then they would speak. It's none of our business if she does have a child or not b/c that's her personal life and issues. The mother is just mad b/c not 1 of her fam members ever reached the success of Michael and Janet. The DeBarges are forgotten about and over with. So move on...
MTO is so so stupid. That picture is of Janet with her ex husband Rene. I think you guys purposely put bogus stories and pictures up so you can get dogged. It's like you dumb coons are some sado masochist or something.
so if you talk to a tabloid about talking to a tabloid, haven't you talked essentially "talked" to the tabloids? think about that.
spill the beans or don't. either way, your whole family is still washed up, broke and drug addicted (even though i love their music!).
I can't wait to read this mother's book. MTO has distorted this woman's words. This isn't what she said in Jet.
She talks about being in an abusive marriage for 23 years and how the children had a horrible childhood. It takes guts for a parent to admit that. Eight of the 10 children led destructive lives. One of the son's said he couldn't even finish reading all of what his mother wrote because it was too painful.
She was married to a white man when interracial marriages were not only forbidden but he was an abusive person. He was probably abusive to the children too.
All these years I thought the DeBarges were Hispanic, not biracial.
At the end of Janets starring role in FAME. She had gained alot of weight, If anyone saw those last episodes, her full body was not shown. She did alot of hiding behind desks and stuff.
This rumor started back then in the 80s and never came back to haunt her 'til these last few years.
But I remember her being plump and hiding.
The truth will be exposed one day I guess..
JANET DID HAVE A BABY BY JAMES DEBARGE!!!Everybody who is old enough to remember her on Fame, knew she was pregnant!! Its shameful the way she's denied that child and karma is a mother...which explains her lack of success with relationship and other business deals. Yes, she has money, but one day she is going to have to face that child and explain exactly why she denied her, let Rebbie raise the child as her own and denied that child access to her paternal family. Everybody knows when you do wrong it comes back on you, the longer it takes the worse the pay back!!!!
updated 5:37 p.m. ET, Wed., Oct. 26, 2005
In a statement released exclusively to Access Hollywood, pop icon Janet Jackson denies allegations that she has an 18-year-old daughter.
In response to claims made by singer Young DeBarge (the younger brother of Janet's ex-husband James DeBarge), who said last Friday on New York radio station WQHT that Janet and his older brother have an 18-year-old daughter named Renee, Jackson released the following statement exclusively to Access:
“I do not have a child and all allegations saying so are false,” Janet told us.
NOW THIS ARTICAL WAS POSTED BY EXTRA WAY BACK IN 2005 AND THEY CLAIMED THE GIRL IS 18 THEN....SO I THINK THIS IS A JOKE..UNTIL SOMEBODY COMES WITH SOME PROOF...WHO GIVES A SHYT..NO NEED TO KEEP ASSUMING....OBVIOUSLY JANET AINT WORRIED ABOUT THIS..WHY SHOULD WE...BUT EVEN IF SHE HAD A KID ... SHE GAVE HER AWAY LIKE MANY WOMEN DO IN THIS WORLD...AS LONG AS THE KID IS TAKEN CARE OF AND GETS THE LOVE HE OR SHE MAY NOT HAVE GOTTEN WITH THEIR ORGINAL PARENTS....WHO ARE WE TO COMPLAIN....
C'mon now everybody...using logic...as many folks as there are in that DeBarge family..if there was a child....somebody...I say somebody...would have sold the story to one of the tabloids by now....you know how hard it is to keep a secret if you tell one person....and as money hungry as 90% of the population is today...they'd have sold the pictures, the birth certificate, the whole enchilada if there was a child...it's an Urban Legend that Ol girl Debarge is trying to cash in on...Heck..."what does love have to do with it?" If there was a baby James would have sold his Mama out for the money....
How abt this story is bullshit! And that pic is of Janet and Rene Elizondo her second husband thats not even James Debarge. Plus she doesn't have kid ppl would have noticed a pregnant Janet and plus she wouldn't keep it a secret
If this child is Janets, I guess I can probably understand why she would keep her a secret. I wouldn't want my child growing up in the spotlight and hounded all the time. Also, being that she was starting her career she might have felt that she didnt want to be responsible for another persons wellbeing. Also there is a possibility that she may have wanted to terminate her pregnancy but her sisters/family may have talked her into having the baby and letting her sister raise the baby. Who knows? It would explain alot about Janets struggle with depression over the years.
Everyone should not make assumptions.How do we know if it is her daughter.That she doesnt already know the truth.They may have a relationship behind closed doors.I would think janets doing the right thing protcting her.let Brandy decide if she wants to live an average/normal life
LISTEN!... I'M AN EXPERT! I WATCH 3 EPISODES OF "THE MAURY" SHOW A DAY!!! I'M PRETTY GOOD AT KNOWIN' "WHO'S THE DADDY"... AND IN THIS CASE, "WHO'S THE MOMMY"! LOL! AND, YES... CALL ME CRAZY BUT, I CAN DEF SEE A LIL' OF BOTH OF THEM IN THAT GIRL!!! I REALLY CAN!!! EITHER WAY SHE'S A PRETTY GIRL! SHE WOULD BE THE MOST NORMAL LOOKIN' JACKSON THE JACKSON'S HAVE EVER HAD! HAHAHA!
Hell, she looks just like both of them on that pic if you ask me. Reguardless that momma can't talk about the Jacksons at all cause the DeBarges last name is equal with cocaine for starters...look in your own yard before you looking over the fence
OH THESWEETESTTHING! IS THAT TRUE?! IF SO THAT'S CRAZY! I CAN BELIEVE THAT THOUGH! AND, I'M PICTURING THE BROTHER JACKIE IN MY HEAD NOW TOO! WHATEVA THE CASE MAYBE SHE DEF LOOKS LIKE A JACKO TO ME! HAHAHAHAHA!
who cares , so Janet wanted to gave this girl a wonderful life out side of the crazy Jackson/Debarge world , how about Janet take 's great care of this child trust fund and the nine yards , oh better yet there is a bank CD sitting out in the Swiss bank for the ones who can keep a secret . better yet play an audio of the love child who is now an adult , if this daughter don't care why should we care who's the mommy ..
remember mommies always daddies maybe that's why we have so many DnA tests
I believe that this story is true because that whole family is weird and fuqed up. The jacksons look like they did stunt doubles for planet of the apes and the dabarge family is full of drug addicts so who would admit that they're mother is an ape, they're grandfather (El Debarge) is a cocaine head, they're uncle (Michael Jackson) is a gay pedophile and they're other grandfather (Joe Jackson) abuses children?
Mama Debarge is doing a book on her kids. This should be an interesting book. Plus everyone says "how can Janet deny her child?" Well if that is really her daughter and she gave her up way back then and never took care of her as her mother and someone else raised her (Jackie) then it would be hard for her to come out now and say "yeah, that is my daughter", this girl probably only knows Janet as her aunt.
YES THATS IS JANET CHILD SHE KEEP SAYING THAT SHE HAVE NO CHILD WILL THERE THE PROOF SHE HAD THE CHILD AT 16 BY HER FRIST HUSBAND . I BEEN SAYING THAT FOR A WHILE. NOW I JUST SAW JANET ON CNN AND SHE STILL IS SAYING SHE HAVE NO CHILD WHAT A DAME SHM SHE NEEDS HELP MAYBE THAT COWBOY CAN TELL HER THAT SHE HAVE A 19 YEARS OLD CHILD IF THE COWBOY HELP HER OUT OF DPRESSING WISH IS NOT TRUE MAYBE HE CAN TELL HER THE SHE REALLY HAVE A CHILD A GIRL. LOL I DONT BELEVE THAT SHE WAS TALKING TO A COWBOY. SHE SAID IT ON CNN.LOLI WISH HER WILL AND THE NEW CD TO SHE IS GOING TO NEED IT SHE ONLY HAVE ONE GOOD SONG IN IT FEEDBACK THAT THE ONLY ONE THAT IS GOOD RIGHT NOW AND IT WENT #1 IN UK NOT THE STATES.POOR THING. SHE BETTER HURRY UP AND GET MARRYED AND HAVE A SECOND CHILD AREADY SHE IS GETTING UP THERE.
Let me get you young ones straight, The girl in the pic is Brandi, Jackies daughter with his first wofe who has since died, she dies of a stroke or blood clot to the brain, as well as Tito's first wife who died by accidental drowning, however, Brandi is not adopted, she has an older brother which is Jackie's oldest son, he had 2 kids with this lady, Brandi looks just like her Mom light skin and fluffy big hair, so thats why you see Jackson in her because she is...Go to the library and look ar some old Jets around that tiem, Jet is always the truth when it comes to black news...As far as Janet being pregnant , yes that rumour was widespread for a awhile, as far as her having a child yes I think it is true, the Jacksons are very good at hiding things, when you have money its called"paying people off"the Debarges have been paid off as well, they are not allowed to discuss anything...it is not common in families to be raised by your grandmother, YUncle or aunt, and not know until death who these people really are, it has happened to 2 of my family members, and it happened to Janet, adn she regrets her decision everyday...but that child in the above pic is not Janet's child..MTO hire better and reliable journalists, the yt websites also show you up..you got to do better...
sorry for the above typos...technically she has no child, so she is telling the truth..she gave her up for adoption to a family member..I think its really mean to say all those things about the Debarges...everyone makes mistakes, and I'm sure alot of us know dysfunctional families or are a part of such families...their mother is sharing her stories, and I really hope and pray that her story encourages someone. to say that they are all crackheads and losers is not cool, and you know who you are on this board that said that, and if you know them and are on this board posting their business, you ain't no better, they seem to be with all the body ailments paying for their mistakes, and they have admitted such. I think that is admirable and it takes a big person to admit that I made a mistake but let me help you not make the same...We are so down on each other...
Timehater, dont correct other people when you dont know what youre talking about! Janet wasnt with El Debarge OR Chico Debarge! She was with James Debarge! Chico was a little kid when she was with James Debarge! And El Debarge is a homo HAHHAHAHA
Man, that girl does look like the two of them. I hope thats a photoshopped pic cuz cheeks up is Janet and nose down is Debarge's. No doubt, she's pretty like J, hopefully she has her talent if that's really her child.
I heard Chico on the Wendy Williams show. He said that he believes that Janet has a child, but he has never seen her...and that his family had hired lawyers and investigators to look into the existence of the child because James wanted to be a part of her life..but that they were threatened. They were told by Jackson attorneys that they were no match financially, and that they would run out of money for legal fees and investigators way before the Jacksons ran out of money to counteract anything they do. And that theyd better leave the issue alone before they dig themselves into a hole of trouble. And thats basically what Chico Debarge said told Wendy Williams. I HEARD IT!
I know a photographer though who was at an event where some of the Jacksons were..and There was a young lady there with one of the Jackson brothers...he is pretty cool with the photographer from over the years...well he whispered to him at the event that the girl is Janets daughter. The photographer has a pic of the girl, the jackson brother, and one of the other neices. he showed it to me and said YOU KNOW THATS JANET'S DAUGHTER RIGHT? i was like YEAH RIGHT! true story LMAO
oh..and back in the 80s i had one of those magazines. I think it was RIGHT ON, or BLACK BEAT. And you know how in the back it has a candid photo of someone. Well this one had a pic of janet and james hugged up and it said JAMES DEBARGE AND VERY PREGNANT JANET JACKSON under the damn caption! I wish I still had it! She didnt look "very pregnant" to me, she just looked kinda fat. you know how her weight fluctuates. BUT I SAWEEEEAR it said JAMES DEBARGE AND A VERY PREGNANT JANET JACKSON! i had the magazine well into her RHYTHM NATION Era...i saved it cuz i was a big fan. But I lost a lot of my janet jackson crap over the years.
that girl doesnt look like Janet though. and that dude DAMN sure doesnt look like James Debarge...seeing as how he is Rene Elizondo. This website has the dumbest, most illiterate, untalented, uninformed, ghettoest reporters on the internet.
Jayla youre a disgrace for judging her for her decision! mind yours. maybe thats what she had to do at the time. its better than her growing up wit a crackhead ass james debarge for a father. and clearly janet was not prepared to be anyones mother. so if it is true maybe she made the right decision
I,ve never understood why Janet would keep this a secret? She was a grown woman at the time and married, so why would she hide a baby? It all makes absolutley no sense. Now nineteen years later it resurfaces, I really hope this is not true.
This is why I stop coming to this site... THIS IS NOT JANETS DAUGHTER. HER NAME IS BRANDI JACKSON DAUGHTER OF JACKIE AND INUD(SP) GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT. Do I think Janet do have a child? YES but this young lady is not her. I'm still a little puzzled on who the the dark skinned girl is that sits on the end of the video 2300 Jackson Street. And a few other photos of this girl kind of standing off to the side. IDK... But this is not Janet secrect child. Brandi Jackson is her name
I love how MTO used a picture of Janet's second husband Rene Elizondo for the headline LOL. They look nothing a like. Is it the jheri curl? And this story has been circulating since I read the 1986 issue of Ebony magazine!! LOL. And why is it always the SAME picture of her used for this story? Its a screen capture from TV taken about 3 years ago.
I guess you didn't factor in the fact that JAMES DEBARGE is the other half of the DNA? LOL. Do you even know who that is and how he looks like? Hypothetically speaking, the child wouldn't have to look exactly like Janet's side of her family. And they're not "waay darker" they're all caramel brown skinned.
Maybe because people actually take the time and have the ability to compute and reason?
***Now, what I really want to know is if Evan Ross is Diana Ross and Michael Jackson's secret child LOL***
Mediatakeout REALLY needs to learn how to fact check. That is NOT James DeBarge in that picture. Why include a picture of Janet and her ex-husband Renee in a story about Janet's and James's alledged daughter. --Also, where in this article does Mama DeBarge refer to a child? She said that the tabloids offered James money to talk about Janet - the superstar to whom he was married. She does not explicitly say they offered money for him to talk about a daughter. All she says about kids is that James has four.
First off, you'll know that sneaky bytch Janet will keep a secret until she dies.
Second, I hope she really doesn't have a child out there, it would be a shame that she would not be a mother to this child all these years, and now she's hollering about freezing her old eggs for a later date!
Janet Jackson really needs to grow up and realize that she is no longer among the elite young singers, she should just sit her a$$ down.
Um, Mediatakeout, ya'll are forever getting facts twisted. First off, that is a pic of Janet and her SECOND ex husband, Rene Elizondo. HE'S NOT JAMES DEBARGE. Secondly, that young lady is not Janet's daughter. I believe she has a daughter, but that picture is not her. Duh. And you want to be known as a respected news site.
Janet is another one,This will come back to haunt her and I mean the skeletons will come out of the closet. There will come a time when the daughter gets her own voice we will hear some explosive shit and I do mean explosive. And shes talking about freezing some damm eggs.
There are plenty of people out there, who give up their children @ birth. Half of them know they will give it away b4 the birth. Its not a big deal. But what I don't understand is why do people expect for her to talk about the abandonment of her child. That is private info that she would rather keep to herself. It probably haunted her for years. But people must move on. They way the alleged "grandmother" speaks, I'm sure the girl had a good up bringing. And kuddos to Debarge for keeping his word (if it was one) & not talk to the press.
Black people stop believing everything you hear in the media. First of all like Myadoll said this is a picture and her second husband Rene Elezando(how ever you spell his name) second of all it was confirmed along time ago that the time frame in which Janet was supposed to be pregnant it was not possible and it was during her Rhythem Nation years. Secondly I read the article in Jet Ms. Debarge stated that the media wanted him to admit that her and James had a child and would pay him huge sums of money to say that there is a child.
@effday I remember that story with Chico and after that interview with Wendy, it later came out in Jet that Chico made it all up for publicity for his album that came out right at the same time he was on the Wendy Williams show.
Please Black People stop falling into the gossip of the Media.
Janet does have a child and she has had one for yrs wether she tells the world or not. That is her business and technically it is private. Stop pressing the issue. It is obvious she doesn't want to discuss this neither does her family. Let the skeletons stay in the closet.
Ok, You ppl can say what you like, This girl looks JUST LIKE Janet Jackson. I can't seem to understand how in the world can anyone deny their OWN CHILD. I think she is paying them NOT to talk about it.
Actually, I think there is a hidden child that would be an adult by now, but I believe that the child is a little older than 19. That's a pretty strange family, but I have seen this type of thing before. Very religious parents, refuse to let their little girl grow up, so they raise her child as if her child is really her sister or her cousin. Get it?
First of all the guy in the pic with JANET is NOT James DeBarge, That's her SECOND husband Rene Elizondo Jr. They were married almost 11 years when the public found out after the divorce. Janet married James when She was 18 years old back in 1984 and was annulled a few months later, IF Janet had a child with James, "She'd" be almost 24 years old, NOT 19.
for ppl 30 and over..if u watched FAME when janet jackson was on there she had a main role and then all of a sudden she disappeared from the show. She was not killed off or anything like that. She was also getting very very chubby and when then the show couldnt hide it anymore she was gone. She was also married to James Debarge at that time. That young lady is Janet Jackson daughter..that is her child. The Jacksons are a very strange and secretive family so I believe it. MTO u have the age wrong...when the Debarge Family called HOT 97 a yr ago they said that their niece was in their early 20's.
Well all don't speak too fast...1/2 you weren't even born when this jumped in the media. Do your research, including the old pics. Yeah brooklynbabe32 I remember. She was getting sick and they said then it was morning sickness, she was always standing behind a desk and walls or sitting on bleachers with her legs all the way up as to hide the belly and she disappeared. She was on the cover of Jet with James and she was very fat. Janet says she always had a weight problem now, but at that time, no she didn't. She was always skinny. They (Jacksons) have always kept secrets. It surprises me now that Janet chooses to talk about her father's illegitimate child (I read it in Parade magazine), but say Sh** about her child. They say she is the normal one, but is she really? Don't forget she is a Jackson and they will tell a lie fast. This is the person who kept a 10yr marriage secret for ummmmmm! 10yrs.
Janet was not 17 when she got married, She was 18 because they eloped and the only one she told when she got back was Latoya who convinced her to tell Mother (katherine) and the marriage was annulled when she was 19. She was married to James for 1yr. If she was 17 her parents would have had to sign for to get married.
i heard she had a daughter a long
time ago, if she does why is it such a
secret? and why cant the child be exposed?
50 cent showed us pics of his son and if that was me
i would not show pics of his son! so why is janet hiding her kid if it is true?
She is very pretty and looks allot like Janet I would not be surprise if that is her daughter...I heard on the radio that after Janet gain weight and had the baby she was taken away to be raised by Rebe....That Jackson kept the secret because they did not want to damage Janet reputation at the time...
THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A LONG TIME...AND TIME WILL TELL..... FOR JANET NOT TO TELL THE TRUTH SHE MUST LIVE WITH THAT.... LIKE DIANA ROSS... THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE....ITS TIME...SLOWLY BUT SURELY IT WILL EAT YOU AWAY AND YOU MISS JACKSON WILL GET FAT ALL OVER AGAIN LOL...............
That is Jackies adopted daughter. He and his wife Enid adopted her he has a son named sigmund esco Jackson Jr. which is Jackie's real name. She was also in her Uncle Michael Jackson's Black or white video and did a few commercials for BK sneakers when Michael was pitching the shoes back then. Go back to 2300 Jackson street she is the little girl running in the light pastel green. You might be able to pull up some old ads for Bk shoes with michael included. I believe they ran in Vibe for awhile.
I really think this photo is infact very old however, this child looks like the Jackson's family. She does look like Janet. But, if it's Janet child, why would any mother deny her own child, what kind of a woman is that.
Janet Jackson father, Joe actually had a child outside of his marriage, and Jo'Vonnie looks like the jackson as well.
Personally, I think Michael Jackson secret child Omar and Blanket is Michael J, biological children. The Jackson's have very strong DNA.
Janet wasn't ready for a marriage nor child. If infact this is Janet Jackson daughter, I personally thing her family made the right decision by allowing the older sister Ribbi to take the responsibility of raising this child. I'm sure Janet was a very big part of her life, what the Jacksons do in their personal lives really isn't of our business. Everybody has their own agenda, and their own reason's of doing things. Just remember ladies, we were once young at one point in time, and people do make mistakes, so don't bash Janet, nor this beautiful photo. Clean up your own faults.
Jackie married Enid Spann (died December 20, 1997) in November 1974 at the age of 23. They divorced in 1987. He has two children - daughter Brandi (adopted), biographical mother Janet Jackson and Sigmund "Siggy", who performs under the name DealZ.
It's nice to know that the Jackson's family loved and supported Janet while she pursued her career.I'm sure Janet was much of this childs.
Rebbie Jackson and Nathaniel Brown have three children:
Stacee Brown (b. 1971) - Stacee is a singer-songwriter who often records with her younger sister; her son London Blue was born in 2005.
Janet and James can't say they have a child together for the simply fact they annulled there marriage. That would be (PERJURY)and they both could be arrested,charged; prisoned, for lying on court papers. Janet would have had to divorce James, if a child was involved. (Court would have to determine custody of the child. This simply was not good business for Janet, being her career was beginning to take off. So the best resolution
You all are stupid First of all Brandi was 7 or 8 during the 2300 Jackson street video , if Janet had a baby in 1985 it would had been 1 or 2 yrs old which means if you fools YouTube The 2300 Jackson video you can clearly see that Brandi is not 2 But 7 or 8 .
Rebbie's Son Austin was born in 1985 & was 2 & was in the Video with Rebbie .
So If Janet had A baby in 85" it would had been 1 or 2 .
so the girl that looked like Janet in The making of 2300 Video looks to be about 12,13,or 14 years old which don't fit the profile of a 1985 baby unless Janet had her when she was 12 ....LOL
If I can remember, I beleive I read an article in a magazine, back in the 80's, which I can not remember which magazine that insinuated Janet was leaving Fame due to pregnancy. I think I remember there were photos and scenes from last episodes Janet filmed for Fame that would not really show her from the waist down. When I read that article in the 80's it was like it was never spoken of again until now.I even told my cousin about it to this day and would not be surprised if she has a child. In any case if Janet does not want to volunteer private information such as that it should be respected.
If you have lived an experienced life in ways that will cause you to be private about certain things your not comfortable discussing, you will approach the situation just like Janet. Some things are just private and are not up for discussion. I know I've been their maybe not with a love child but other things that would kind of equate with her situation. We all make mistakes and are human in "Gods" eyes.
Here's what everyone isn't looking at
1. Brandi Jackson was born in 1982 in 1983 Jackie did A rolling stone Interview & announced that him & then wife Enid had A 1 year old baby girl . which would indeed make Brandi birth to be in 1982 if she was 1/A year old in 83" which would mean Janet was 16 in 1982 & was on "Different Strokes" as Charlene between 1981 & 1982 & even 1983 Janet played Charlene on "Different Strokes" . mind you all Back in the 80's some TV Networks was strict on Young girls been Pregnant on A sitcom show or any show for that matter , & lets not forget in 1983 Dana Plato got pregnant with her son & was fired in 1983 by the TV Network which means If Janet had Brandi her butt would have been Fired just like Dana was in 1983 with the Pregnancy of her son , So it don't make since of why? they would Fire Dana in 1983 For been Pregnant but Not Janet .
2. People have said They Changed Brandi's Name & Year Of Birth .....LOL I'm not understanding how the hell would this work if Brandi was already born in 1982 & 1 years old in 1983 & 5 or 6 in 1988 & In the 2300 Jackson Street Video Its Clear that Brandi is at least 6 years of age Not 1 or 2 years old as Janet & James daughter if Janet was pregnant in 1985 would be & Brandi was already 3 years old in 85" ......LOL so it would be Hard to try to Pass a 5 or 6 year old Child as Someones Baby they just had in 1985 given the fact that We all seen Pictures of Brandi as A Child & She was 8 years old in Her Uncle Mikes Black & White Video & In Janet's 1990 Japan Commercial as the Little girl who was Getting on The Train In A cute Blue Jean Outfit & Big Curly Hair .....LOL Brandi was also among the Jackson Children on the Phil Donahuge Show back in 89" & once again she looked at least 5 or 6 maybe could had been 7 years old & setting in the Audience In A White Dress . So Brandi's Age Don't match up to her been Janet's Baby she had in 1985 ( DO YOUR MATH & PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE ).
3. Just Because Someone may look like someone or people doesn't mean they are Hell I've seen girl's in NY who have the same facial features as Brandi & skin Complexion as Brandi & are of Puerto Rican or Latino decent Or biracial Black/White & look like they could be DeBarge/Jackson's Kid but aren't , Hell I have A Cousin who looks like My Aunt & Her Ex-Husband But shes not even neither one of their Kid shes my other Aunts Child & Husband Kid . & Plus Janet's Kid don't Necessary have to come out with light skin & look like A DeBarge as everyone thinks After all James is Mix with Black & Janet is Black so anything could come out of the mixing pot here but The child don't have to look like A Light Skin Child to be A DeBarge After all Some of The DeBarge Children don't look like your Light Skin DeBarge For Example " Chico Javon DeBarge" I would not have placed him as A DeBarge Kid due to him been Caramel dark Skinned , With African Features , He has Pretty Hair but If you saw him Walking down the street & you didn't know who he was you would just think he was A Black guy with A Good Perm on his head ...........LOL so what makes everyone think Janet's secret Son or Daughter would be Light skinned . Just comes to show how closed minded some people are just because 1 Parent is Half black don't mean the child would look like Brandi nor even the skin complexion .
4. The DeBarge's I'm sure know & have seen pictures of Brandi , Why? is it If Brandi was James why isn't anyone talking about Jackie's ( SUPPOSED ADOPTED ) Daughter & given the Fact she was born in 1982 I believe James & Janet were dating & I don't think James was on Drugs in 1981-82 So I would think he would know rather if Brandi was His & I would think Brandi herself would have reached out to the Family given the fact she's now 29 almost 30 years old now .
So i mean Brandi been Janet's kid w/James The Math don't add up & Them Changing her Year of birth Wouldn't make since especially since she was born in 1982 .
Also the little girl in the 2300 Jackson Street Video that Janet is Holding Is her Niece Autumn ( Jermaine & Hazel Gordy's Daughter ) & the Girl that someone said they saw in A Picture Is of Another Niece Brittny Jackson ( Marlon & Carol's Daughter ) who look like a Carbon copy of Janet but Britny was born in the Mid 70's or some time in the 70's & so was Autumn as well Janet also has Another Niece who looks a lot like her & thats Steveanna ( Randy & Eliza's Daughter ) .
Also Rebbie's Daughter Stacee Also kinda Favor's Janet a little , So I mean Some of the Grand kids Look like Aunt Janet But it doesn't mean their her Daughter By James DeBarge .
Also I Heard that Brandi isn't even Adopted That she is indeed Jackie & Enid's Birth Child she had in 1982 with Husband Jackie & plus Enid was of Mix race so Brandi could have just gotten some Genes from Enid's Mix Culture .
