I had a conversation with Damita Haddon in studio a couple of weeks ago when she shared with me about the demise of her marriage with her husband, gospel artist Deitrick Haddon. I respect them so much, so I didn’t want to make this announcement until they were ready to share it with the public. Well, today Deitrick shared this on his Facebook and Twitter pages:
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. Unfortunately 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
Today Deitrick lives on the west coast. Damita has just released a new record “Anticipation” and is still pastoring Kingdom Culture Church in Detroit, MI. I love them both and will continue to pray!
