A 31-year-old woman, Tiffany Whyte came out last week to claim she’s Janet Jackson’s love child with the singer’s first husband, James DeBarge (read here). Earlier, in 2012, DeBarge had claimed that he and Janet secretly had a love child who they gave up for adoption; a claim that Jackson denied.
With the emergence of Tiffany making claims, a DNA test has now been done to determine Ms. Whyte’s paternity.
Whyte grew up in the Pennsylvania foster system and has always wished to have parents of her own, hence her coming out now with the claims.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for 31 years. I always wanted a father. Always wanted a dad. I would like for James to be a part of my life,” she said.
James’s mother, Etterlene DeBarge, claimed that she and Whyte previously took their own secret DNA test and the result was a match. James agreed to a DNA test which was done at accredited facilities in California and Pennsylvania. The results were analysed by top experts in the field and the verdict is that James is NOT Whyte’s father.
The scientific report says that there is zero chance of James being Whyte’s father.
James is not giving up the search for the alleged love child and he insists that the truth will come out someday.
