Blast From The Past

DeBarge 1980s

If you saw DeBarge today, would you recognize all of the brothers? And more importantly, would they still look just as suspect? Pop the hood and see for yourself.

Mama DeBarge El DeBarge

Mama DeBarge and three of her eight sons were spotted at the YWCA’s 2010 Black and White Benefactrix Ball this weekend. Who woulda thought, with that beautiful falsetto, that El would end up looking the least suspect of his brothers?!

Other long lost faces spotted at the Benefactrix Ball included KiKi Shepherd, Tangi Miller, and Chico DeBarge’s long lost fraternal twin Kenny Lattimore. Check out the pics below, including El’s performance sex faces.

    THATS NOT HOW TO POSE FOR A PIC, GUY IN THE GREEN! LOL

    • Luv-Lee

      You people need to stop. That is Tommy DeBarge in the green. He is standing like that because he has health issues. People really need to stop being so quick to talk mess and not know the situation. I’m glad to see them out to support El. Theses men are LEGENDS!!! Black people show some RESPECT!!! The DeBarge family has made some of the most memorable and sampled to songs in music history!!! D a m you young people!!!

      He’s posing like that because both of them are older than El and have problems with their legs from health issues. I think Tommy has diabetes and some other stuff. And those pictures are 30 years later. Give me a break…they’re a lot older. Sometimes people are so ignorant and stupid.

  • that damn sh#$ disturber

    that’s definitely a “how u doin” kodak moment. still love my debarge!

  • ThickLikeCornbread

    I would NOT recognize them at all.

    Dude in the green: How u like ur salad?!!

    • Detroit

      he’s crippled and does not have his cane. he’s obviously is leaning on his brother for support. And, he has nine children. These are straigt up men. Mama Debarge look good for her age. Mama Debarge got to be in her 70s and pushing up to 80.

  • AHHHHHSHADDAAAP!!!!

    My sense of comp.a.s.s.ion wills me to lay up off this family because they’ve been to hell and back. But damn if Mother DeBarge doesn’t remind me of Mama Odie from ‘The Princess And The Frog.’

    • candyshop

      Mama Debarge looks good. That woman is almost 80 years old. Take notes.

  • if anything be noble

    Lol guy in the green said ‘hmmm how can I stand out in this picture without them noticing? I know. Ok. I’ll do some ninja ballet moves.’

  • I WASN'T GONE SAY NUTTIN, BUT

    The Debarge brothers looking rather flamboyant looking a little sugary sweet…but I’m not one to gossip so ya’ll ain’t heard that from me

    • candyshop

      There is nothing sweet about them. They’re from Detroit. All Detroit people dress kinda flashy. Take a visit.

  • MS.CHI CITY

    RANDY…TOMMY(WHO IS DYING SLOWLY FROM CANCER) AND EL…O MY THEY MAKE YOU NOT WANT TO DO DRUGS!

    • mack

      where’s James?!

    • MS.CHI CITY

      JAMES IS IN CALI TRYING TO GET HIS GOSPEL CD TOGETHER…THATS WHAT I HEARD.
      CHICO IS IN CHICAGO DOING MUSIC AS WELL.
      BUNNY, PEACHES, YOUNG DEBARGE AND MARTY ARE STILL IN GRAND RAPIDS LIVING A WONDERFUL LIFE. YA’LL GOTTA STOP BEING SO CRUEL WITH THESE COMMENTS. THEIR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN READ THESE AND I PROMISE IT KILLS THEM TO KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING THIS KIND OF STUFF BOUT THEIR FAMILY.

    @AHHHHHSHADDAAAP!!!!

    I was thinking the same. Having learned how tragic their lives were coming up, its amazing that any of them have any sense at all.
    Just as with Tyler Perry’s mom, how is it that Mama DeBarge allowed the severe physical, mental and sexual abuse of her children at the hands of their father? I’m in awe of circumstances like these. Nonetheless, its good seeing the family and I hope they’re all doing okay.

    • candyshop

      Hate to tell you this but women did not have much rights back in those days and did not have help to leave abusive situations. Heck, that just started really in 90s where abused women and their children can get sheltered. Especially the fact that Mama Debarge husband was white. Black people could’t call the police on no white man…guess what would happen? they would lock her up. Learn some black history before you start talking mess. ignorant.

  • Allie

    Lol el definitely stands out, because he obviously looks the best still love them though

  • Beenie

    Why R they standing that way, their mother looks like P. Diddy’s no fashion sense mother. Glad they made it through the storms of their lives.

  • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983

    Love DeBarge!!! Very happy for El right now.

  • Marquis de Sade

    *SIGH!* These androgynous, non-talented hacks remind me of how SOUL-LESS the 80’s were…Outside of Prince, 80’s R&B artistically was a DEAD & BLOATED corpse.

    • Angee

      Ouch!

    • AHHHHHHSHADDAAAP!!!

      I agree with you about Prince. But no mention of Mike? You’re gonna completely ignore dude just like that?

  • Hope4more

    They are looking good considering what they have been through. Glad to see that they are getting a second chance. El looks really good and may God continue to bless them. Now back to the music.

  • candyshop

    I love the Debarges, El is special to me. But they all look great and I wish their whole family all the best. They’re legends. have some respect, ignoramus.

    • Luscious

      Wuz up with the paranoia and dissection of each comment made? Is this a family member?
      There was nothing ignorant about what I said, nor did I trash anyone.
      Man up, and stop acting like a little b*tch or get off the site.

  • Greeneyedbandit

    Much love&respect to the Debarge family!
