The two legendary singers are apparently related, as Janet Jackson revealed last weekend, during an interview with a reporter from BBC.
Janet went a bit into details about her family, but also extended relatives. And everybody was surprised when she talked about her connection to the iconic Stevie Wonder.
“People don’t know this one. Stevie is actually our cousin – on my mother’s side. We don’t talk about this…but yeah, he is.”
The radio host was also surprised, making Janet Jackson reveal that she is the only one in her family to talk about this, a few years ago.
The two are third cousins and were around each other very often in Los Angeles, in the early 70s. Janet’s father, Randy, also talked about this in a podcast, but never gave a lot of details.
