Yesterday PATH re-posted Deitrick Haddon’s facebook statement that accused fellow Gospel artist Isaac Carree and Damita Haddon of adultery. Haddon said it was the real reason he divorced his wife. One thing we know is that there are two sides to every story, and even though we got this news instantly, we waited 6 hours until it went viral before making our report. The only reason we posted on the issue was to follow up with previous reports that were giving Haddon a tainted name, and give him the opportunity to express his take on the timeline of events.
We feel it’s important to get all sides of the situation. Now that secular outlets have ran with the story, I will make this final report on the issue to give Isaac Carree a chance to respond.
Deitrick Haddon titled his summation of the events “Coming clean in 2013 so God can really be truly glorified.” Afterwards Haddon accused fellow Gospel star Isaac Carree of breaking up his home, by sleeping with his wife Damita.
Isaac Carree is married and Haddon tells Carree to “come clean in 2013.” On the heels of Carree’s new single “Clean this House,” Haddon said, “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.”
Isaac Carree reached out to celebrity journalist Jawn Murray exclusively to make his statement saying, “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.”
Both artists wish the other well in their statements, but that does little to heal the pain and career damage that everyone involved in this matter is facing. PATH prays that all parties involved will seek to handle their differences direct and privately so the body of Christ does not loose faith in the three artists who I personally know have a heart for ministry.
According to Haddon, he felt being quiet was no longer an option and made his objectives clear. Trying to protect his new child and new fiance he wrote, “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.”
We may never know the truth as Isaac Carree’s above statement alludes to more untold truths. “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,” Isaac Carree concludes.
As we read the tone of the different journalists reporting on this story you have to consider the friendships and angles each one are reporting from. We have no agenda to prove who is right or wrong, and will do our part to keep good people from being falsely reported on, and hold our brothers and sisters in the Gospel accountable for their actions.
