What many have speculated for quite some time now has finally been confirmed. Gospel singer, songwriter, producer, and actor, Deitrick Haddon, has confirmed that he is no longer married to his wife of 15 years, Damita. Although Damita remained tight-lipped about the split, besides dropping “Haddon” from her current media promotions, Deitrick used Facebook to make the public announcement.
“Many call me a man of God. I say I’m a good man trying to serve a great God the best i can..If i was that powerful of a Man Of God i would still be married 2 Damita. I’m learning to have balance because you can win & lose @ the same time! It’s possible to work so hard & be so driven that u lose everything! I pray that in the future I find the balance of ministry & family! Damita’s doing well & I’m doing fine! Her new CD is amazing. We both are staying true to the call on our lives,” says Deitrick.
He continues, “Unfortunately [we’re] not 2gether anymore. I don’t believe in sharing my personal but I think it’s important 4 people to know that in your pursuit of ministry don’t lose family! Don’t be alarmed we’re doing fine. This is very old news for Damita & I but brand new news 2 you. We’re private people! We have moved on! Last I will speak on my personal: Our breakup is NOT recent! It’s been well over a year process. We have both repented & moved on! Damita & I have worked hard in ministry. Blessed many while bleeding ourselves! God is with us both but no longer as a couple! OK…I’m very private about my personal life..You probably won’t get me 2 ever speak on this again unless God make me share.”
Well there you have it. I do admit that this was a very private divorce, as I interviewed Damita a few months ago and she had nothing but nice things to say about meeting, working with, and being married to Deitrick. Let us know what you think below.
