Since Janet Jackson announced her pregnancy, questions arise, again, about her alleged “secret daughter” she’s had with her first husband, singer James DeBarge.
Janet and James had a very brief marriage during the mid-80s…a time when an 18-year-old Janet was successfully coming from under the shadow of her brothers, The Jacksons.
According to published reports, Janet wed James against her family’s wishes because of her age and her blossoming career in music and acting. Allegedly, Janet’s sister, Reebie, raised the girl while living in Las Vegas. Other conflicting reports claims that the baby was put in foster care.
“I believe I do have a sister out there,” James’ 26-year-old daughter, Kristinia tells ‘Inside Edition’.
Kristinia said she suspects the baby was given up because “[Jackson’s] family had a huge influence on her. If she was pregnant, the only thing I can think of is that she still had a very long career ahead of her.”
She believes the time has come for the truth to come out, adding: “I think for me I am going to continue to research and I am going to continue to try and find this person.”
