ILOSM family, many of us know that when it comes to family, we may love ’em dearly, but may not necessarily ‘like’ them. It happens. That brings us to the legendary DeBarge family and their latest uh…situation. Let’s just say, it’s WAAAAY worse than the typical sibling/family spat at this point.
Some of y’all may recall our prior report, when we revealed that El DeBarge was arrested 2 weeks ago, during a very violent altercation. Well, now El is letting ALL of the details outta the bag and his arrest apparently had everything to do with his fam.’
Recap Of El DeBarge’s Arrest
At the time of El’s arrest, here’s what was reported:
According to TMZ, El got into a heated argument with the guy in a house somewhere in San Fernando Valley and the guy tried to run clean away from El DeBarge- out of the house and into the street. Police say that once the guy ran, El took after him, with a wrench in hand, and the guy hid behind an RV. Apparently, one RV didn’t stop El from trying to get at the dude, because he allegedly smashed the windshield of the RV that the man was hiding behind. Cops say that’s when the unnamed, scared man called the cops on El and the R&B crooner was ultimately arrested for felony vandalism. He reportedly spent a night in jail and bailed out on a $20K bond.
As you can see, no details were previously given about the identities of the other parties involved in the wrench-wielding fiasco. But NOW El has confirmed it involved his siblings and here’s why…

Their demand to the police that I be arrested for a broken window has broken my silence.”
