James DeBarge Claims Janet Jackson Was ‘Pressured’ to Hide Love Child

*Janet Jackson’s ex James DeBarge claims that her closest advisors pushed her to abandon their child and save her fame.

DeBarge claims that young Janet not only hid a secret baby from the world for decades; but that she knowingly did it to help her career.

“I’m not sure, but I think it was the pressure, the fame,” that caused Jackson to give up the alleged child, DeBarge told in an exclusive interview.

As Radar reported, James said he believes Jackson gave birth to his child after their split in the 1980s, and that their daughter could be a 31-year-old Philadelphia woman named Tiffany Whyte.

“When you’re young, it’s easy to be persuaded and to do things you may not even want to do…” he said, when asked why – if Jackson did in fact give birth – she would have kept it a secret.

Whyte alleges that she received a text about a year ago from a woman claiming to be Janet Jackson. “She said she was Janet Jackson,” Whyte told Radar, claiming that people close to Jackson “made her” give up the alleged child.

“She was just very apologetic,” Whyte said.

DeBarge has claimed for several years that he fathered a secret baby with Jackson, who now lives privately with her husband, Wissam al Mana, and their newborn son, Eissa. Janet has never commented on her “secret baby” scandal.

Meanwhile, DeBarge and Whyte took a DNA test last month to set the record straight once and for all. #staytuned — as the results are going to be published on any day now.

  1. Here’s my question? Why is the media giving James DeBarge who’s had very a lengthy battle with drugs? No dis-respect but dude looks a mess and very not trustworthy at all. Janet is right on not commenting on this foolishness.

  2. …and another thing, doesn’t the child generally look like at least ONE of the parents? I’m sorry, even if the DNA test comes back 100%, I’d question the test. There is no way in the world the woman called Tiffany Whyte was created by James DeBarge and Janet Jackson. No way. I’d bet money on it.

  3. Wow, Janet’s had so much plastic surgery over the years that I can’t tell if that woman looks like her. Time to google some “before” pictures…
