DEITRICK HADDON ANNOUNCES HE AND WIFE DAMITA ARE DIVORCED!
Grammy nominated Gospel artist, producer and actor, Deitrick Haddon, announced via Twitter that he and wife, Gospel singer Damita Haddon, are no longer a couple and haven’t been for quite some time.
Haddon stated in a series of tweets, “”Our breakup is NOT recent, it’s been well over a year process…God is with us but no longer as a couple. They call me a man of God…I know I’m just a man who’s trying my best 2 serve a Great God & it’s not always easy but by grace I’m doing ok! If I was that powerful of a Man Of God I would still be married 2 Damita. I’m learning to have balance. You can win & lose @ the same time!! It is possible to work so hard & be so driven that you lose everything!! I pray that in the future I find the balance of ministry & family!! 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!! Damita & I have worked hard in ministry…blessed many while bleeding ourselves! God is with us both but no longer as a couple!”
Rumors of the couples split had been circulating for months, including several reasons for why the relationship ended, but nothing has been confirmed. (See BLIND ITEM: GOSPEL POWER COUPLE HEADED FOR DIVORCE!) The Haddon’s had not been seen travelling together and both Deitrick and Damita were noticeably absent from several recent high profile engagements with each other.
It appears both parties have moved on and are focusing on their new projects. Damita recently released her third project ANTICIPATION, which is sitting in the top 20 on Gospel’s Billboard charts and Deitrick is busy promoting the DVD release of his second feature film “A Beautiful Soul” in stores August 21st, 2012.
