Just one day before the release of the documentary, Janet Jackson cleared up all the rumors about her, including those that she allegedly had a secret child with her ex-husband James DeBarge.

The 55-year-old musician addressed the rumors in the second part of her upcoming Lifetime and A&E documentary, Janet.

Decades after speculation spread that she had a baby, or secret children, Janet finally spoke directly and calmed all rumors that she had a baby with her ex-husband, but that one of her siblings was raising him as her own.

"Then they told me that I had a child and I kept it a secret. I could never keep a child away from James. How can I keep a child from his father? "I could never do that, that's not true," she said in the covert video.

She then opened up about the rumors she had heard that her niece Brandi was actually her daughter, that she had given her "child" to brother Jackie to raise, and that Randy's brother Stevana was actually her daughter because they looked so very similar.

Janet hinted that the rumors may have surfaced because she started taking birth control pills, which led to her gaining weight at the time.

"Many on the Fame set thought I was pregnant because I got fat and started taking birth control pills. And then, you could gain weight by taking them, and it happened to me. "That's how the rumor started to spread."

The two-part documentary will air tomorrow, and Janet is already talking about her relationship with her brother Michael Jackson and the insecurities she grew up with under the surname Jackson.
