About Chico DeBarge

From Wikipedia:

Jonathan Arthur "Chico" DeBarge (born June 23, 1966, Detroit, Michigan) is an American R&B singer and a younger brother of the members of the Motown family act DeBarge. Unlike the rest of his DeBarge siblings, Chico is the only male DeBarge that does not sing in the falsetto range that is well known in his family; he sings tenor.

Personal life

He has five children (Cheyanne DeBarge, Chicoco DeBarge, Manny DeBarge, Abrielle DeBarge, Dontae DeBarge) and is in the process of divorcing Andrea Bordenave, who filed for divorce from him in mid-2009. He is also the ex-beau of singer/actress Nona Gaye.

In 2008, Chico DeBarge appeared in the video for Joe's single, "We're Family" off the Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins soundtrack.

In the fall of 2003, Chico DeBarge was stabbed by the South Philadelphia Italian mafioso named John "Johnny Gongs" Casasanto outside a Philadelphia nightclub after the two engaged in an argument, in which Casasanto called DeBarge a "titsune", the Italian equivalent to the word "coon."

In 2007, DeBarge was arrested for drug possession in California and later went to rehab. In 2009, he admitted to addictions to heroin, cocaine and prescription medication and based his album, aptly titled Addiction, on his drug struggles.
