Gospel singer Deitrick Haddon had an eventful year in 2012 to say the least. Even though he experienced much success with the release of his second feature film, “A Beautiful Soul”, he also sent shock waves through the industry after announcing his divorce from ex-wife Damita. The post we did on their divorce was one of our top commented posts in 2012. Damita never made any public statements regarding the divorce, but Deitrick announced the news via Twitter, claiming they were separated for quite some time.
Now the singer has used Instagram to announce another shocking revelation. According to Deitrick, he fathered a beautiful baby girl, Destin Monet Haddon, and is engaged to a younger woman. Of course the child was born out of wedlock, but Deitrick addresses the entire situation in only a way that he could. Check out what he has to say below and let us know what you think.
“I said a few days ago that i could write a best seller on 2012 alone & i think i will!!! 2012 wasn’t the worst year of my life because 2011 beat it out hands down. In 2012 i began to see God move in my world like i’ve never seen in my entire life… I can say 2012 was the most challenging year @ the same time the greatest year of my life because in the midst of all the darkness & depression that seemed to have no end God sent an angel to give me hope in the form of my baby girl.. YEs she was born out of wedlock which is absolutely wrong for a man in my shoes….but i must say that If it wasn’t for that child & her mother the negative headlines about Deitrick Haddon would have been more devastating than anything!!! The enemies agenda in 2012 wasn’t to give me a bad name but he wanted to take me out. That’s when i realized if the enemy is trying this hard to stop me God has something serious that he wants me to accomplish; so i fought hard physically & spiritually!!! God has delivered me in many ways this
year.. He walked me through the storm, chastised me but never once judged me, but instead he forgave me,restored me & somehow gave me the strength to continue to sing his gospel when i said i wouldn’t do it because i felt unworthy! My new year’s focus is to leave all the negative energy behind, own my mistakes, but do not allow it to hinder my future!!! By doing so I will stay true to the call on my life but do it with more fire, passion, humility & love than i’ve ever done it before.In addition, be the best father to my beautiful daughter and be the great husband i know i can be to my future wife & Give God all Glory!
Goodbye 2012 & hello 2013 Leeeeeggggooooo (Disclaimer: This post is not up for discussion and I ask that you keep all negative comments to yourselves.) This is the last this will ever be addressed because i’m moving 4ward in 2013 in Jesus name!!”
