Gospel singer Deitrick Haddon is going into the New Year with renewed perspective and major changes in his personal life.
Haddon announced on twitter and instagram that he has fathered a child out of wedlock. Haddon is reportedly still dating the child’s mother, and indications are that the two will eventually marry.
In 2012, Haddon announced his divorce from Gospel singer Damita Haddon, and let it be known that the two had been separated for quite some time. Damita Haddon has never spoken publicly about the divorce.
The following statement was released by Deitrick Haddon in regards to his new baby.
Deitrick Haddon: I said a few days ago that i could write a best seller on 2012 alone & i think i will!!! 2012 wasn’t the worst year of my life because 2011 beat it out hands down. In 2012 i began to see God move in my world like i’ve never seen in my entire life… I can say 2012 was the most challenging year @ the same time the greatest year of my life because in the midst of all the darkness & depression that seemed to have no end God sent an angel to give me hope in the form of my baby girl.. YEs she was born out of wedlock which is absolutely wrong for a man in my shoes….but i must say that If it wasn’t for that child & her mother the negative headlines about Deitrick Haddon would have been more devastating than anything!!! The enemies agenda in 2012 wasn’t to give me a bad name but he wanted to take me out. That’s when i realized if the enemy is trying this hard to stop me God has something serious that he wants me to accomplish; so i fought hard physically; spiritually!!! God has delivered me in many ways this year.. He walked me through the storm, chastised me but never once judged me, but instead he forgave me,restored me & somehow gave me the strength to continue to sing his gospel when i said i wouldn’t do it because i felt unworthy! My new year’s focus is to leave all the negative energy behind, own my mistakes, but do not allow it to hinder my future!!! By doing so I will stay true to the call on my life but do it with more fire, passion, humility & love than I’ve ever done it before.In addition, be the best father to my beautiful daughter and be the great husband i know i can be to my future wife & Give God all Glory! Goodbye 2012 & hello 2013 Leeeeeggggooooo (Disclaimer: This post is not up for discussion and I ask that you keep all negative comments to yourselves.) This is the last this will ever be addressed because i’m moving 4ward in 2013 in Jesus name!!
Who the heck is this dude to make a public statement, then tell folks how to comment?
But in keeping with his Royal Highness Haddon’s wishes, I’m gonna keep it positive…….I am positively convinced that anyone who says their sin is a blessing from God is positively a fraud.This is a prime example of why I can’t get my Brothas to come to the church. It used to be, “The devil made me do it!”. Are we now saying, “God made me do it!” SMMFH!
to who much is given much is required. I pray this situation doesn’t cause those in his church and that follow his music to walk away from God. Some seasoned saints may be able to handle this but for the untrained an unsaved this could be a major issue to push/ keep people from trying to get to God. Praying
At first I was mad but then again I remember wht the word of God said put ur trust in no man I pray for Damita and wish you both well but u lost a true fan………..
I love you and your music. I just watched your movie. You are very talented. Keep doing what you do.
