During their marriage, they lived at the Jackson family home Hayvenhurst. In 2016, DeBarge claimed on Growing Up Hip-Hop that he and Jackson have a daughter. Jackson had previously told Vibe magazine in 2001, “They say the kid’s in Europe or that one of my brothers or sisters is raising it …. But no, I’ve never had a child.”
