Well, we no longer are left wondering and making assumptions as last night Urban Gospel artist, Deitrick Haddon, laid to rest all of our thoughts. He shared that his marriage to Damita is over and has been for some time (via his facebook):
“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.”
I’m sad to hear this, but…yea…I myself have wondered what was going on for the past year and prayed about it, so yea, there it is. Keep them in prayer as both Deitrick and Damita are still keeping up with hectic music ministries and such. I recently got a chance to meet and talk with Damita, I so wanted to ask her about the situation, but that was not my place nor would it have been appropriate. But she seemed okay and was her usual smiling and humble self, plus she’s just really dope peoples! Deitrick just arrived back from touring Africa (again) and is prepping to promote the DVD release of A Beautiful Soul and Damita has released her 3rd solo album, Anticipation! So support not only monetarily their projects, but most importantly keep them lifted up in prayer!
