A woman named Tiffany Whyte claimed to be the daughter of Janet Jackson and James DeBarge’s. Before that, a number of women had come forward claiming that they were the daughter of the 52-year old singer, Janet.
The news was taken very seriously when James’ mother Etterlene DeBarge and Janet’s former mother-in-law came forward declaring that her son James and former daughter-in-law Janet had a secret child who has been hiding from the public for more than 30 years.
For years there have been rumors about the alleged daughter of Janet Jackson and James DeBarge and as the whispers were finally giving up, a woman named Tiffany Whyte came forward saying she is the long-lost daughter of Janet Jackson and James DeBarge.
Even though her face looks nothing like her alleged mother or father.
Janet Jackson and James DeBarge tied the knot in 1984, at that time Janet was just 18. The marriage collapsed just after a year and was eventually annulled.
Nobody knows if there was a child or not but Janet’s former mother-in-law Etterlene believes that there is a daughter somewhere.

After the marriage was ended, Janet disappeared from the public view and people believed she went to concealment to give birth.
Some say her sister Rebbie raised the child and some believe she was placed in a foster care.
Tiffany and Etterlene also did a DNA test and found the probability of relatedness is 96.7%.
Etterlene was so much sure that Tiffany was her granddaughter because she felt some kind of connection with the 32-year old Tiffany.
According to a secret DNA test with Whyte, it was proved that James DeBarge is actually not Whyte’s daddy. And that surely means that Janet cannot be the mother of Tiffany.

But the story simply doesn’t end here. In2012 James had sent a letter to Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s “death doctor” that he had a love child with Janet and the heir is still out there somewhere in the world.
