Bunny DeBarge Slams Mother Over Janet Jackson Secret Daughter Claims
Bunny, who was the lone female sibling of the Motown family group DeBarge, tells us exclusively that she’s sorry for the drama that it has caused Janet and her family. In an exclusive statement, she explains,
I would like to convey mainly to Janet and her family that we the DeBarge family and especially James had no knowledge of this interview being done. We are totally embarrassed and would never do anything to hurt her. James is hurt about this as well and has asked me to speak on his behalf to Janet and Momma Kate and the whole Jackson family. We wish her and the new baby many blessing and much love. The interview by no means represents my family. I believe that this story has been so abused for years. It’s old and it tired and it’s nobody else business to explore.
James and Janet married in 84 and annulled in Nov of 85. James had the understanding that Janet was pregnant at that time, but was told after she went to Japan for a year that the baby was aborted. So if there was a baby, the baby would have been born in 86. This make the child 29 not 30 or 31. We get many girls claiming to be Janet and James daughter. I say leave Janet and James alone. This has haunted my brother for years. Now they want DNA for Tiffany, which no DNA is needed for. It is plain to see, she put her self out there to really be eaten up. But I guess people will do anything for that 15 min(utes) of fame. I do believe my mother being up and age now (81) ran with it once the DNA came back that she was 96 percent kin. I tried to explain to momma that the girl is kin to her. There is no way she belongs to the DeBarge Jackson family. Momma felt maybe she went back in the gene and took after her. Sorry Tiffany, God bless you and we hope you find your family. Again to my Ex-sister in law Janet, Congrats. To the public, it looks like you’ll eat up everything but the truth.
As previously reported, in a new interview, Etterlene DeBarge (James DeBarge’s mother), Janet’s former mother-in-law claimed she had proof that Janet secretly had a daughter 31 years ago.
Etterlene recalled a conversation with Janet about the alleged pregnancy three decades ago.
I told her she was pregnant; I didn’t ask herI said, ‘Girl, you pregnant. Look how fat you’re getting.’ She just laughed it off. She never denied it.
She added that over the years, she’s has been contacted by several women claiming to be the singer’s secret daughter. But one day, she heard from a woman she thought could be a match.
I told her, ‘The proof is in the pudding. Let’s go get a DNA test’.
The DNA test results showed
the probability of relatedness if 96.7 percent.
The woman is 31 and lives in Philadelphia. Janet, who recently welcomed a baby boy this year, has yet to address the rumored speculation.
Growing Up Hip Hop reality star Kristinia Debarge also believes that she may have a secret sister, which would be a result from Janet and her father having a child years ago. Click here for the story. [Photo: Inside Edition Screen Grab]
