Adris Debarge (born in 1978; Age: 46) is an American lady best known as the first daughter of El DeBarge, a vocalist, songwriter, and actor.
Adris didn’t get to enjoy her childhood with El due to his drug addiction, but she is currently relishing a father-and-daughter relationship with the singer since he got sober. El’s first daughter is now the wife of actor and stand-up comedian Finesse Mitchell, and they are parents to two beautiful daughters.
How Old is Adris Debarge?
Adris Debarge’s current age is 46. Though her exact date of birth is not known, the records revealed that she was born in 1978. Her place of birth is captured as Grand Rapids, Michigan, in the United States, which is an indication of her American nationality. However, Adris’ ethnicity is a mixture of Afro-American and French.
El Debarge is the name of her dad, but the issue of Adris’ mother’s identity has never been confirmed, though there are online sources that revealed her mum to be Montique Debarge.
Adris is the first of 12 children born to her dad. The Debarge brood includes – El DeBarge, Jr., Noah Debarge, Kyndall Ferguson, Melody Robinson, Jordan DeBarge, Kennedy DeBarge, Joshua Ferguson, Zach DeBarge, Tanen DeBarge, Nicholas DeBarge, and Bobbie DeBarge.
These children came from El’s relationship with five different women, and he was married to three of them, though one of the kids was adopted by the singer.
Since Adris’s mum is not known, it is rather difficult to separate her direct siblings from her half-siblings. Adris Debarge hasn’t said anything about her academic journey, but it is stated that she went to school in Michigan, but the level she attained in education is not known.
Who is Adris Debarge’s Father?
Adris Debarge’s dad is a celebrated actor, singer, and songwriter, El Debarge. He belongs to the family music group known as DeBarge and was a frontman leading them in songs such as “Time Will Reveal,” “Rhythm of the Night,” “Who’s Holding Donna Now,” “All This Love,” and “Stay with Me.”
At a point in his life, El battled drug addiction which led him to lose his name and fame. His addition to controlled substances was so much that it left the singer’s personal life in disaster. El’s 22-year-long drug habit made him an absentee father in the lives of his children, and he was far from a good husband to all the women he married.
Does She Have A Good Relationship With Her Father?
El was just a 17-year-old boy when he welcomed his first child, Adris Debarge. It is understandable that being a father would be a difficult task for a teenage boy, but El compounded the situation by becoming a drug addict at that age.
Consequently, Adris spent her formative years without really knowing her dad, as El was a typical absentee father. According to the singer, he wasn’t just ready to assume the responsibility of fatherhood then. Life itself was a huge struggle for him as he battled his addiction.
He eventually led a wayward life for 22 long years, and by the time he got sober and wanted to start reconnecting with his children, Adris was already a grown woman in her twenties.
After he made a move to get back together with Adris, she made it very easy for her dad. According to El’s first daughter, having her father in her life is a brand new experience, and she enjoys it to the fullest. In her own words, Adris said that just seeing her father sober and happy at this point in their lives gives her so much pride and joy. It is really a gift to always have him around, she said.
