Janet Jackson Janet Jackson

On Wednesday, Janet Jackson shot down former brother-in-law Young DeBarge's recent claim that she had a secret daughter by husband James DeBarge during or around the time of their super-brief 1984 marriage. "I do not have a child, and all allegations saying so are false," Jackson says in a statement to Access Hollywood. Of course, any kid allegedly born some 20 years ago technically isn't a child at this point, so the singer has her bases covered.
