JANET JACKSON: DOES SHE HAVE A SECRET CHILD?

New allegations have surfaced that Janet Jackson and James DeBarge — who were briefly married in 1984 — have a daughter together. DeBarge's brother Young DeBarge made the claims Friday on New York radio station. He claimed the child, an 18-year-old girl named Renee, has been living with Rebbie Jackson, Janet's oldest sister. "James and the Jackson family kept everything real close, real tight," Young DeBarge said. "They weren't very revealing about what the relationship was about." Rumors of a "secret" daughter have circulated for years.
