Playing Is This Janet Jackson's Secret Daughter? Star's Ex-Mother-in-Law Says She Has DNA Test to Prove It

Now Etterlene DeBarge, the mother of Jackson's ex-husband James DeBarge, tells Inside Edition she thinks she's found the truth.

In an exclusive interview that will air in full on Thursday, she recalled her conversation with Jackson about the alleged pregnancy three decades ago.

"So you asked her if she was pregnant?" Inside Edition's Les Trent asked DeBarge.

"I told her she was pregnant; I didn't ask her," DeBarge said. "I said, 'Girl, you pregnant. Look how fat you're getting.' She just laughed it off. She never denied it."

DeBarge said she has been contacted by several women over the years claiming to be Jackson's secret daughter. But one day, she heard from a woman she thought could be a match.

"I told her, 'The proof is in the pudding. Let's go get a DNA test,'" she said.

The DNA test results showed "the probability of relatedness if 96.7 percent," she said.
