Tiffany Whyte says that she is the daughter of Janet Jackson and James DeBarge, a secret love child who was kept under wraps for 31 years.
In an interview with RadarOnline, Whyte claimed that she was tired of keeping her secret. “I’ve been kept a secret a very long time,” she said. “I want people to know the truth.”
Whyte’s claims track with claims made by DeBarge back in 2012 that he and Jackson had given up a baby for adoption before they split in 1985. DeBarge published the claims in a letter written from prison to Michael Jackson’s death doctor, Conrad Murray. At the time, the letter was published by Radar.
Years later, Whyte claims to be coming forward after the DeBarge family encouraged her to do so.
“[Janet] has been denying me for many years,” Whyte told Radar. “I waited 31 years.”
