Does Janet Jackson Have A "Secret Child" For Ex-Husband http://coolfm.ng/lagos/features/showbiz/item/3709-does-janet-jackson-have-a-secret-child-for-ex-husband http://coolfm.ng/lagos/features/showbiz/item/3709-does-janet-jackson-have-a-secret-child-for-ex-husband Does Janet Jackson Have A

Its no news that Janet Jackson is pregnant and ready to pop, the singer and dancer got married in a secret ceremony to husband Wissam Al Mana in 2012.

But just recently Janet's ex -husband James DeBarge, who was released from prison in 2015 after serving three years for drugs charges and assault with a deadly weapon, claims that he has a secret child with the singer.

Janet Jackson’s marriage to James was annulled a year after their wedding.

During a recent interview Debarge said “I’m tired of the secrecy,” he said. “I’m tired of the truth not coming forward, and people being a coward when it comes to it. And I thought it was wise for me to speak out now because it needs to be addressed.”

This was during an exclusive to RadarOnline in May of this year, DeBarge spoke up about the issue ..“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 continued: “One of her adoptive parents died. Her adoptive mother… and on her death bed (she) said she told her. She confirmed it on the deathbed.”

He claims not to have known about the pregnancy – but that he had his suspicions.

“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.”

The rumours about Janet's secret child surfaced in 1994.
