Gospel recording artist, screenwriter, and actor Deitrick Haddon has a strong contingent of loyal fans, many of which were left reeling after news hit last year that he and his wife of 15 years, Damita, had quietly divorced.
Now, many supporters are struggling to process the most recent news that he has fathered a baby girl with an unidentified woman he is currently engaged to marry.
With reactions ranging from shock, disdain, and encouragement, EEW Magazine’s editors have sifted through wide-ranging responses from readers, with a vast majority expressing disbelief and dismay.
Most were made aware of the explosive news as it popped up on their Twitter timelines and Facebook feeds, after Haddon, as is his custom, used his social networking sites as personal journals.
Thus far, it is confirmed that his new fiancée is a twenty-something Los Angeles woman who is also the mother of Haddon’s daughter, Angel Destin Monet.
For those who are receiving this news for the first time, EEW Magazine has posted the original message revealing Haddon’s new family below, just as it appeared on his social networking sites:
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!!
At this time, no further details have been disclosed regarding when Haddon plans to wed the mother of his daughter.
