Janet Jackson’s former brother-in-law claims the singer has a secret daughter named Renee
Janet Jackson has a secret teenage daughter?! Can you believe it?! Young DeBarge, the brother of Janet's ex-husband James DeBarge, told New York radio station HOT 97 during an interview on Friday that the singer has a secret daughter named Renee.
It was said that Janet and James were married for less than 3 months when she was still 18 years old. They annulled the marriage a year later. Though, during the marriage they had a teenage daughter, Renee, now 18 years old who lives with Jackson's older sister Rebbie Jackson.
Young said "James and the Jackson family kept everything real close, real tight. No one really knew how it was working out until things kind of surfaced." As of how Renee feels about her mother, Young commented "I think there's a little despondence. She hasn't really revealed that, but I'm sure that there's some feelings there. It's only natural that you wonder about what is and how it's come to be that way."
