Pregnant Janet Jackson Spotted Out Shopping As Ex-husband Claims They Have a Secret Daughter Together
Janet Jackson kept her pregnant figure under wraps when she was spotted shopping for flowers in London earlier this month.
The 50-year-old covered her large baby bump in a loose-fitting black turtleneck as she stepped out of a shop in Mayfair while a helper followed carrying an orchid.
Janet wore her hair up and appeared to be make-up free for the outing.
It was confirmed last month that the singer is expecting her first child with husband Wissam Al Mana, who she married in 2012.
But her ex-husband James DeBarge claims this pregnancy is not her first. He claims they have a secret daughter together.
During an appearance on his daughter Kristinia's show Growing Up Hip Hop, she confronts him about the allegations.
"I'm tired of the secrecy. I'm tired of the truth not coming forward, and people being a coward when it comes to it. And I thought it was wise for me to speak out now because it needs to be addressed. To be honest with you, I didn't know. I was under the impression that there was no baby, and I wanted to believe it's not true. But it is," the 53-year-old says.
DeBarge had previously made the allegations to Radar Online, saying he had contacted the woman claiming to be a daughter he had with Janet.
"Someone had contacted me. She spoke to me by email, The first time was two years ago. I have not been able to directly see her face-to-face. One of her adoptive parents died. Her adoptive mother and on her death bed said she told her. She confirmed it on the deathbed," he added.
The singer, who was part of the band DeBarge, married Janet in 1984 and their union was annulled the following year.
DeBarge was released from prison last year after serving three years behind bars for assault with a deadly weapon and drugs charges.
