Move on! That’s the message DeBarge family members have for the woman who claimed to be the love child of Janet Jackson and James DeBarge. But at least one DeBarge believes another heir is out there!
As Radar reported, DeBarge, 53, has claimed he and Jackson secretly fathered a love child that was given up for adoption. Last week, Radar revealed Philadelphia native Tiffany Whyte, 31, believed she was the long-lost child. DNA testing showed, however, there is ZERO chance of paternity between James and Whyte.
Now, one member of DeBarge’s family wants to put the whole ordeal behind them.
“It’s nobody’s business to explore,” James' sister, Bunny DeBarge, exclusively told Radar.
Although she has no ill feelings towards Whyte, Bunny told Radar she does hope Whyte can find her family someday.
And while the DNA tests proved Whyte is not related to the DeBarge or Jackson family, Bunny wouldn’t rule out the possibility there is a real love child out there, somewhere.
“James and Janet married in 1984 and annulled in 1985,” Bunny says. “James had the understanding that Janet was pregnant at that time, but claimed he was told after she went to Japan for a year that the baby was aborted." Jackson has never publicly commented on the allegations.
DeBarge first claimed in 2012 that he and Jackson had given a child up for adoption before their 1985 split. The news was revealed in a shocking prison letter to Michael Jackson's death doctor, Conrad Murray, published by Radar.
