James has spoken about their alleged love child numerous times over the years and a woman named Tiffany Whyte even appeared on “Growing Up Hip Hop” claiming to be the child in question:
Speaking more about her relationship with James, Janet said the two of them used to talk on the phone a lot as kids, because one of his brothers had a thing for her sister La Toya. They started dating when she was 16, with Janet calling him a “sweet” and “nice guy.”

“I wanted to be able to stand on my own feet and at that time I felt there was no other way to get my own life unless I got married,” she said. “James and I decided to get married. My sister Toya said if that’s what you want to do, then you should do it. So I did, in secret.”
