Damita recently got engaged to photographer Reuben Chandler and is quoted as saying, “Iām very happy because someone has found me that loves me for me.ā āWhen I wasnāt looking, it seemed like God placed him right in front of me. Funny thing is Reuben wasnāt looking for a mate either.ā
Damita tells AlwaysAlist.com that she first met Reuben 12 years ago while both were serving at Without Walls International Church in Tampa, Florida. The two reconnected a little more than a year ago while Reuben, who resides in Alabama, was visiting Atlanta.
Damita, who is an Atlanta resident, was having a cookout with some friends and invited the photographer over.
“I invited him to stop by to hang with me and some of my friends,ā she shared. āI had no idea then that it would be the beginning of us starting to date.ā
“Iām happy because I matter to him,ā she beamed. āIām listened to and Iām honored by him. Heās a man of God. Iām happy because Iām a wife that will belong to Reuben Chandler. God is great!ā
The singer said she knew she was ready to marry him because āwe just fit!ā
Damita was officially divorced in 2012 from the “Preacher’s of L.A.” star Deitrick Haddon. The split turned nasty after Deitrick accused Damita of sleeping with fellow Gospel star Isaac Carree. Carree never confirmed or denied specific claims in his only statement to the media. Deitrick Haddon has since remarried, and now has two children with his wife Dominique.
