*If ever there was a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing, this is it.

Remember earlier this week when the DeBarge matriarch, Etterlene DeBarge, claimed that she has DNA proof that her daughter-in-law, Janet Jackson, has a secret daughter?

Well, Bunny DeBarge, is having her say about what her mother said and the bottom line is that they are not on the same page. And that’s saying it nicely.

Bunny, if you recall, was the lone female sibling of the Motown family group DeBarge, and told theJasmineBrand that she sorry for the confusion and drama that her mother’s tale has caused Janet and the Jacksons as well as her husband, Wissam Al Manna.

” I would like to convey mainly to Janet and her family that we the DeBarge family and especially James had no knowledge of this interview being done. We are totally embarrassed and would never do anything to hurt her. James is hurt about this as well and has asked me to speak on his behalf to Janet and Momma Kate and the whole Jackson family. We wish her and the new baby many blessing and much love. The interview by no means represents my family. I believe that this story has been so abused for years. It’s old and it tired and it’s nobody else business to explore.”

Bunny DeBarge added:

“James and Janet married in 84 and annulled in Nov of 85. James had the understanding that Janet was pregnant at that time, but was told after she went to Japan for a year that the baby was aborted. So if there was a baby, the baby would have been born in 86. This make the child 29 not 30 or 31. We get many girls claiming to be Janet and James daughter. I say leave Janet and James alone. This has haunted my brother for years. Now they want DNA for Tiffany, which no DNA is needed for. It is plain to see, she put her self out there to really be eaten up. But I guess people will do anything for that 15 min(utes) of fame. I do believe my mother being up and age now (81) ran with it once the DNA came back that she was 96 percent kin. I tried to explain to momma that the girl is kin to her. There is no way she belongs to the DeBarge Jackson family. Momma felt maybe she went back in the gene and took after her. Sorry Tiffany, God bless you and we hope you find your family. Again to my Ex-sister in law Janet, Congrats. To the public, it looks like you’ll eat up everything but the truth.”

Here’s what we reported earlier ….

*We all know the legend…. back in 1984, when Janet Jackson was 18-years-old, she eloped with musician James DeBarge and they had a baby girl… maybe. The marriage lasted one year before it was eventually annulled. but their child would be passed on to Janet’s sister Rebbie to be raised in secret.

Now, as 50-year-old Janet embraces the joys of motherhood “for the first time,” her former mother-in-law, Etterlene DeBarge, is speaking on the legend that her new baby is not her first.

“I know there’s a daughter out there somewhere,” DeBarge said when asked by Inside Edition whether Jackson gave birth to a secret child 31 years ago.
