Over the years, we’ve heard a lot about El DeBarge’s addictions and have seen the impact it’s had on his career.
But what about the other members of his legendary music family? El’s siblings, singers James, Randy, and Bunny sat down with “Celebrity Rehab” host Dr. Drew on “Dr. Drew’s LifeChangers,” a two-part special airing Wednesday on the CW network.
On the program, James, ex-husband of Janet Jackson, explains how Michael Jackson talked him out of committing suicide.
“One time I was on the roof of his (Michael Jackson’s) house…I was going to jump and everyone was losing it,” James told Dr. Drew. “He was the only one not freaking out. He seemed to be familiar with my pain. …. He knew I needed someone to talk to so he was that ear. So we just talked all night and I forgot that I was even on the roof and that I was going to jump.”
