BOMBSHELL! Apparently the gospel artist is sick of people around the world blaming HIM for the ending of his marriage. It didn't help that the "Sinner's Prayer" singer announced on Facebook that he was recently engaged to a 24-year old, and the two have a daughter together.
Now, Haddon revealed that HE is not the reason why his 15 year marriage resulted in a divorce. Not only is he calling out his wife for her adultery, but also another fellow gospel artist who has been quiet as a mouse....UNTIL NOW. Let's hear what Deitrick had to say first.
Deitrick Haddon and ex wife Damita.
"Coming clean in 2013 so God can really be truly glorified. My objective in this personal message to my supporters is to set the record straight on why I divorced my ex-wife, to clear my daughter’s and fiancé’s name, and to give you the truth. I’m not here to throw anyone under the bus, but I refuse to remain silent while people slander my name because the other parties involved are refusing to speak up for me and about their involvement in this matter. I regret having to continue to speak on this but you all need to know the truth from my perspective. It does not feel good when people make comments saying that I left my wife for a younger woman and a baby!! It’s simply not the truth & the truth is recorded in heaven! Heaven keeps good records & i have no reason to lie!!! I met the young lady when i moved to L.A a broken mess & God used her to keep me from committing suicide twice!! I do admit that she did get pregnant before my divorce was final as my divorce carried on for over a year. However an abortion was not an option for me so I covered her & she covered me while we both repented of our sins & submit to spiritual leadership. As a sign of humility & accountability, I have not preached on any platform in any church for one year!! I’ve paid my penalty for my sin!!
I understand that my ex-wife wants to keep quiet & she has that right but to allow people to think this way about me while she remain Quiet is not cool when I was a good husband, not perfect but a good husband & friend to her for years!! I take full responsibility for my actions but I WILL NOT take responsibility for the cause of my actions. I don’t expect Damita to be bold enough to go public because people will take your transparency & rub it in your face & even Christians who are called to restore & forgive will be ready to throw stones at her for something that God has forgiven her for & is in her past. Unfortunately, we happen to live in a religious community that preach forgiveness but when the opportunity presents itself to show it they just don’t do it!!"
LATER ON IN THE PARAGRAPH:
“Furthermore, I do expect Isaac Carree, former member of Men of Standard, to stand up and be man enough to own his mistakes & give his fans the truth they deserve to know. I appreciate your new song ‘Clean this house” you know I’ve always been a fan of yours since day one & I’ve never done anything to hurt you but you left one sin out of your song that would have set the record straight & solidified my healing process & that is Adultery! I hate to see you walk in deception when it’s unnecessary. YEs, I have forgiven you but I want to see you be the true man that God is calling for all of us to be.. The Gospel community & church has had enough deception.. Let’s come clean in 2013.. I have forgiven you, but it’s time to be real…”
Uh oh. We didn't know ANYTHING about an Isaac/Damita affair! Here's Carree's reply to Deitrick Haddon's allegation.
Isaac with his beautiful wife of 8 years Dietra. The pair have 2 kids.
“It has been brought to my attention that Deitrick Haddon recently made some very hurtful statements about me. I, as well as my wife, are both shocked and confused by Deitrick’s actions. It saddens me that he would seek to engage in mudslinging with me, especially because he and I have spoken openly and honestly about this, even long before his allegations. While I have no desire to drag these personal conversations into a public forum, he and I both know what the truth is. Still, I pray God’s best for him and his family. This weighs heavily on me, but I am grateful for the opportunity to speak from my heart. This will be the only statement that I will make regarding this situation,” he concluded.
Isaac has a grueling tour coming up where he will be promoting his new single entitled "Clean This House." It will be hard to duck questions concerning this matter.
So! What do you all think? Are you #teamIke or #teamdeek? Another question. Who do y'all think has the best singing voice? Just curious. While you're thinking, here's Isaac's big hit "In The Middle" followed by Dietrick Haddon singing "Well Done" LIVE on TBN.
