Mr. X Blind Item #4

What R&B singer who was really popular in a group with his relatives and had a decent solo career has a secret he's hiding? He's been living with a man for the past decade, and his boyfriend used to be his cellmate back when they were in prison.

Tricia13 said...

Known as El Debarge (married to Janet Jackson once I believe)

Kno Won Uno said...

El is a brother. James was married to Janet.

Kno Won Uno said...

The group was called simply DeBarge.

El Debarge. James never had a solo career.

Ay said...

Or Chico. I loved his first album.

Kno Won Uno said...

James was rumored to have been working with Fist Brown last year.

Kno Won Uno said...

But you're right - El's had a much better post-DeBarge career and he's been in jail multiple times.

Tricia13 said...

i know...it was my answer lol.I listened to them alot. Wasnt sure if James went by El as knickname, or which married JJ)

I miss old R&B. Like, OLD R&B from the 60s & 70s. Motown stuff - before it was officially called R&B.

Tricia13 said...

me too:) I always suspected El(and James too) were gay. very effeminate. Easy to confuse those 2!! And i forgot about Chico>>
Remember Jeffrey Osbourne?? Love him

Kno Won Uno said...

Oh, yeah. And Teddy Pendergrass, Same Cooke, Isaac Hayes...not sure I ever got over Marvin Gaye. Every radio station playing something good any hour of the day or not.

James been in jail mutiple times as well. Sad family :(

Whywhywhy??? said...

The DeBarge family had it rough, reported the father was extremely physically abusive with the wife and kids.

Ay said...

Sexually abusive as well smh

And Kristinia Debarge is James' daughter.

Dani said...

The whole family basically went in and out of jail for drugs. Saw the "Where are they Now" on TVOne and it was really sad. Sidebar: El has always carried himself in a feminine manner.
