Today's Blind Items - The Secret Child That Is Now A Star In The Making

Back in the day this R&B singer was everywhere. She had a string of hits that all went to the top of the charts in the genres she was singing for. She made a huge name for herself and then dropped off the planet. Well, one of the people that loved what she was doing wanted her for himself. He used to be A+ list and will be forever an A list singer/celebrity. They started working together and by working mean that he would write songs and have her sing them to see what they sounded like. One thing led to another and they ended up living together for about a year. During that time she got pregnant and had a child. Our permanent A lister knew about it but didn't want anyone else to know about it. He liked the idea of having a secret love child. He took care of the child and the mom very well and still had the mom sing for him and sometimes sleep with him. Meanwhile he made sure his child went to the very best schools and when he discovered the child had musical talent made sure they spent hours each day working on music. Now, he is ready to launch that child out to the world with a monster record he is promoting like crazy but still wants to keep the fact that the child is his a secret.

Janet Jackson's secret child.

MontanaMarriott said...

So BabyFace or Stevie Wonder had a secret love child?

kday said...

Prince and...?

Uhhhh... said...

Aaliyah / Timbaland

Uhhhh... said...

I'm half joking, but the dropped off the planet thing made me think of her.

RangersGirl said...

Jermaine Dupri is the father.

! Now this is a blind i can get behind.

RangersGirl said...

Or the DeBarge she was married to, can't remember lol

sandybrook said...

I think the father may be someone like Smokey Robinson, someone who was a real big player in the music business in the 70s and 80s.

Derek Harvey said...

maybe Rita Whora is Princes love child lol?

sandybrook said...

Forever A list always = legends

Seven of Eleven said...

@Uhhhh, I would so love for it to be Prince and Aaliyah (as long as her family knows she's alive)! She was so gorgeous and talented, I imagine their child would be equally so.

Though I can't imagine a scenario wherein I would have to give up my career and fake my death to make a man happy. Oh hell no.

MontanaMarriott said...

If this is Prince it could be any number of Prince-Ettes from Vanity, Apollonia, Sheen Easton, Sheila E.

Derek Harvey said...

Prince and Martika--in Martikas kitchen baby

wade-o-potatoface said...

I like the Price and Sheena Easton guess.

portlandjewel said...

It can't be Jermaine Dupri, he's always broke... Probably wouldn't have the money to support a secret child and baby momma. This is a good blind. I love R&B

Derek Harvey said...

Sheena "My baby takes the morning train" Easton? lol

portlandjewel said...

Quincy Jones and one of his hundredss of proteges.

sugarbread maker said...

+1 on Janet baby raised by reby

sandybrook said...

Sheena Easton's children are adopted

Derek Harvey said...

but it cant be one of Princes 80's babe cause the kid would be an adult around my age and that is old in the record industry ---they like tweens etc.

MontanaMarriott said...

I always LOL when I think of Sheena Easton before meeting Prince she was singing "My baby takes the morning train". Then she becomes PRINCE-ified and starts singing "My Sugar Walls" LOL

Dolphy said...

Wasn't there an old BI about Berry Gordy being Bruno Mars' secret daddy?

Derek Harvey said...

Usher and Mya?

rajahcat said...

now you have my attention.......!!!!!

funny MM

portlandjewel said...

There's no way the Jackson family has a hidden love child, with talent out there somewhere, and haven't tried to make bank off it. NO WAY!

crila16 said...

Love the Prince and Sheena Easton guess. I know they had a thing at one time. She totally dropped off the face of the planet.

Princess Nobody said...

Yes!

GPS74 said...

@Dolphy, I think you're right on with that guess.

@portland, this made me laugh out loud because it's too damn true!

rajahcat said...

Bruno is already a huge star--doesn't need to be promoted and "launched"

sounds like someone younger than him anyway

Princess Nobody said...

Could be Berry Gordy & Diana Ross She kind of disappeared and her son Evan is a recording artist.

Topper Madison said...

It sounds like it's supposed to be Sheena Easton and Prince. However, isn't Prince still A+?

Norseman said...

Prince has quite the history of being secretive, and of having female protégées...

AKM said...

"Could be Berry Gordy & Diana Ross She kind of disappeared and her son Evan is a recording artist."

But we already know that her oldest daughter is Berry Gordy's child. Also, I wouldn't say she's "kind of disappeared" exactly. Remember her bouncin' Lil' Kim's boob onstage?! She goes to award shows and such.

I feel like this is someone who is TOTALLY gone from EVERYTHING. I can't figure out who that would be, though. I'm good at debunking but not deciding, it would seem.

Laurie-Anne R Collins said...

Ooh I'd love for this to be Prince and Sheena Easton (even better would be Sheila E. but oh well). Does anyone in 3rd Eye Girl, the band he's promoting now, look like she could be their kid?

MISCH said...

@Princess Nobody

Diana Ross's oldest daughter is Berry Gordy's

Eros said...

Love the janet Jackson guess because that would be super juicy.

JSierra said...

I feel like the child in question its still a child/teen, not someone past legal age

Jennabean said...

Has to be late 90s .. Jay z was big then foxy brown disappeared but that's probably cause she was nuts. JD was with Janet then but idk if she could hide a baby the way she hid her marriage. Puffy ?? Can't think of a chick. Maybe a older producer like a Isley brother ?

And don't forget You've Got The Look, damn I loved that video.

Tara said...

That Usher/Mya guess is interesting...He only publicly has the 2 with Tameka right? Maybe he didn't want to negate his image with an illegitimate child?

sugarbread maker said...

janet was really "fat" for a while hiding under sweatshirts saying she gained 70lbs...pregnancy weight?? easy to hide a baby under sweatshirts, I know lots of girls in high school who did this and then got rid of baby and very few people were the wiser. and then Janet's sudden weight loss???

Maggie said...

R kelly and mya

Melanie said...

The one on the right looks like she could be a Prince-ess.

hollywood dime said...

Janet was pregnant in like 84/85. I think her kid would be too old and the father in that situation wasn't a secret. This is someone younger.

Gabi said...

Macy Gray?

Princess Nobody said...

@AKM @MISCH WHAT?! I had no idea that Berry and D Ross had a kid! Wow, I have seen like all those Jackson 5 movies and that was never mentioned. I guess you really do learn something new everyday.

Renoblondee said...

I loved Sheena back in the day! How about We've Got Tonight with Bob Seger?

Cheryl said...

Didn't Prince and Mayte Garcia have a baby that died, but no one ever saw the baby? I'm not saying that the kid never died (I think it was a boy and he never released the name) , but that Prince is super secretive and has had a steady stream of girlfriends/proteges. It's an interesting blind.

Cheryl said...

Good one Melanie with Prince-ess!

Dimerica said...

Nelly & Brandy/Ashanti?

Unknown said...

Prince and Mayte DID have a child, but the baby absolutely passed away within days of birth. He/she (I can't remember the gender) had a condition which causes the skull to not close. It was a very sad situation made worse by two of Prince's employees taking pictures of the baby and trying to sell them. Despicable.

Frosty said...

Mick Jagger and Joss Stone?

Melanie said...

Thanks, Cheryl!

Walt Driscoll said...

The blind says 'She had a string of hits that all went to the top of the charts in the genres she was singing for.' which suggests she wan't necessarily big on the pop charts. It sounds like an RnB star who didn't 100% cross over i.e. Not Janet or Sheena.

Alos if they are about to be launched they are likely to be late teens early 20's at the latest.

we're looking for an R&B singer from the early to mid 90's who had lots of hits in that genre that were mostly produced by one person and who has disappeared.

Gypsy said...

Mary J Blige?

Basil said...

This sounds like Prince and somebody. Not sure Sheena Easton dropped from site entirely per the blind. Doesn't she do Vegas now? She used to no that long ago. Sheila E would be a better fit.

Cheryl said...

@unknown-I didn't know that his employees were trying to sell pictures. That's sad. I remember the interview Oprah did with Prince at Paisley Park where she asked about the baby and Prince said everything was fine.

Shotinthedark said...

What?!? Sorry, but say what? Aaliyah is alive? My mind is truly boggled. More details, please,... and do I get extra points for boggled? : )

Dorkus Malorkus said...

Lauren Hill?

REH said...

Mary j bilge! Does she have kids???

versace buckles said...

The baby didn't die as far as I know. My sister attended Catholic School in Miami suburbs with Mayte's relatives and the child was born with special needs and was taken care of by professionals. Nothing scandalous but very sad and understandable that Prince would keep the child far, far away from the public eye. That said, this absolutely sounds like Prince but with someone more recently than Sheena Easton. I need to do some research

cc7 said...

Tyler Collins & Prince

Elizabeth Hunt said...

Hmm...I'll guess Toni Braxton and Brian McKnight?

Norseman said...

Ok, so Prince just had some to-do with Lianne La Havas in England... except I don't know who her mother is...

Millie said...

Brandy and Wayna Morris

gretchen fonseca said...

Ashanti n P.Diddy

gretchen fonseca said...

Ashanti n P.Diddy

SMBND said...

Michelle'e and Dre. She never really crossed over. Their child would be late teens.

Ruby said...

If she hadn't died, this would be Aaliyah and Timbaland

aLi ThAtgIrL said...

Toni Braxton & Babyface

Alita said...

Parse please please, @Derek

signwithclass said...

I immediately thought Toni Braxton/Baby face as well. I don't think Usher/Mya, because he never served in a mentor roll with her and she never got a lot of fame, so to speak.

deran said...

I didnt know Sheena even had kids;but she really got around it seems. Wouldnt be surprised she had some abortions.However she fits with the fact that it implies 'whatever chart..' because she has #1's in Country,AC,Pop,dance and R&B.

Dan G said...

I think it is Prince and the child is Ida Nielsen. Don't know who the Mom is.

ktmonster said...

You are looking for a kid born between 1996 and 2000 most likely.

ktmonster said...

What about Jill Scott?

Unknown said...

Sade has a daughter. Don't know who the biological father is for sure.

Amy Judges All said...

http://www.nairaland.com/1215171/picture-sade-adus-daughter-ila

Hey, check it out: it's my first post! Sade has a 17-year-old daughter named Ila who looks a lot like Prince (is that racist?).

Radio Blah_Blah said...

What about Monica? She was all over the place back in the '90s and then dropped off. Sounds crazy, but I'm going to guess R. Kelly for the A-List singer. She claims she never worked with him, but that could be a cover...

Sophia said...

I'm on the Toni Braxton/Babyface train as well.

kit said...

I'm on the Toni Braxton boat here.

I see now it says she is R&B,which would not be Sheena.I see at least one of Lauryn H's kids is not fathered by Marley..Others who sort of disappeared are Jody Watley and maybe Sinead O'Connor..Prince wrote her big hit;which was on R&B chart,but she also had an affair with Peter Gabriel as I recall and they lived together.

MizBellla said...

Maybe Deniece Williams & Johnny Mathis or Phillip Bailey or Stevie? She's worked with everyone & her youngest if I'm not mistaken is an up & coming rapper. After "let's hear it for the boy" she dropped off basically into gospel world.

MizBellla said...

Bobby Caldwell & Roberta Flack
Look up the "white" rapper: Logic
I'm gonna solve one blind in my lifetime!

MizBellla said...

Logic has Peabo Bryson's real name. :)
