According to The Old Black Church Blog: For whatever reason, there’s little to no credibility left in today’s folks who claim to follow Christ. Most of these so called Gospel artists need to sit down somewhere and stop leading folks astray.
Gospel singer, songwriter, producer, pastor and actor Deitrick Haddon has taken to his twitter page in an effort to try and head off some negative press that is headed his way and because of a child he has fathered outside of marriage.
He's claiming also on his twitter page that he had to keep his newborn baby girl out of the public eye because of evil people.
The true of the matter according to a family member:
"It’s time to stop! Deitrick and Damita were not divorced until October 2012 and Damita still loved him.
He cheated with someone younger and yes had a baby in the beginning of the 2012?? Yes I’m speaking the truth! What he did is not right.
Stop lying and tweeting Detrick that you and Damita were/are friends. You are lying! Stop tweeting and saying Damita was in agreement. Damita did not want the divorce.
Damita does not talk to you because you lied before and you continue to lie! I am a family member and yes I know the truth.
You really hurt Damita and you could care less. Your actions were heartless! Yes we have all sinned and came short of God’s glory. But you cannot make excuses, and publicly humiliate your wife and then announce things to make you look ‘innocent.’ I can’t stand the foolishness.
We forgive you but you need to stop lying and be truthful. Hurt is hurt. God knows all of our hearts.
When you represent Jesus Christ there is a standard that should remain. Just because someone falls, it does not make it right for them to hurt other people along the way down."
