Janet Jackson's Former Sister-in-Law Drops a Bomb About the Pop Star's Alleged Daughter

Bunny DeBarge has receipts of her own.

Published February 26, 2017

As Janet Jackson tries to focus on her duties as a new mother, her former mother-in-law, Etterlene DeBarge has come out of the woodworks with some tea from Janet's past, claiming that the pop icon had given birth 31 years ago to a baby girl, and that she has DNA evidence to back it up.

Now, Etterlene's daughter and fellow Motown icon Bunny DeBarge has come forward to slam her mother's claims and defend Jackson — but still let slip some secrets about Miss Jackson of her own.

Bunny spoke to The Jasmine Brand to personally apologize for her mother's comments. "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," Bunny said.

"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."

  1. Many took to Twitter to thank Bunny for coming forward
  2. But most just can't get over the original rumor to begin with
