The family’s mind-blowing hattrick in drug abuse and physically abusive behavior has really made a gold record after all along with lots of DeBarge family’s police mugshot.

And maybe his family’s past life could be the reason behind Tommy’s low-key life.


Tommy is not linked with any rumors of consuming drugs but the number of wives he has changed in his life gives a hint that he was also addicted to women. He married thrice according to online sources. Yolanda aka Duckie was his first wife and after Duckie, Tommy got married to Tracey and Monique.
