Janet Jackson Secretly Eloped

Janet, the youngest of the Jackson clan, first appeared in the public spotlight at age 7 on stage in Las Vegas during a performance with her siblings. At 18, she secretly eloped with James DeBarge, who hailed from another group of singing brothers. Her family and business manager urged her to get the marriage annulled the following year.
