‘I want to tell my truth’ – Janet Jackson’s alleged secret daughter speaks out

By Mojola Aturamu

Last year, Janet Jackson’s ex-husband, singer James DeBarge, dropped an alleged baby bombshell  in a clip from WE TV’s Growing Up Hip Hop. The  53-year-old DeBarge claimed that he has a secret daughter with  Janet Jackson claiming that  the 50-year-old singer gave birth to a daughter after they got married in 1984 and the singer gave up the baby for adoption.

Now, the 31-year-old alleged daughter, Tiffany Whyte has come forward to claim that she is the secret child of the pop icon, Janet Jackson and ex-hubby James Debarge. She says that she wants people to know the truth – her truth.

It was reported that Tiffany grew up in a foster care system but learned seven years ago that Janet was her mother but Janet has been denying her.

Corroborating the story is Tiffany’s alleged paternal grandmother and Jackson’s ex mother-in-law, Eterlenne Debarge who  granted an exclusive interview with Inside Edition, insisting the rumours are true. She also claimed to have a DNA test as proof, stating that she and Tiffany have taken their own test, and it was a match.

But shortly after, Debarge’s sister debunked the claims and apologised to the singer for her mother’s actions.

Jackson, who recently welcomed a son with husband Wissam al Mana, has not confirmed nor denied the rumour.
