Rumors about Janet Jackson and James DeBarge's secret love child have been swirling for decades, but this year, a woman has come forward to identify herself as the former couple's kin — only to get roasted by the internet.
Tiffany, 31, claims she was given up for adoption by Janet before the pop star's split from DeBarge in 1985. Strangely, her story got a co-sign from DeBarge's mother, Etterlene DeBarge, who says that she and Tiffany took DNA tests, and matched.
So, what's wrong with this picture? Twitter has some thoughts...
