Janet Jackson's ex-husband James Debarge was arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of drug possession on Thursday (24Apr14).

The R&B singer, a former member of sibling band DeBarge, was taken into custody on Thursday on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine and was held without bail at a Los Angeles Police Department jail.

DeBarge, 50, who has battled drug problems in recent years, wed Jackson in 1984 but their marriage was annulled the following year (85).
