Speaking of Preachers of LA, there seems to be yet another scandal brewing. In case you somehow missed it, prior to Deitrick Haddon’s current marriage, he was married to another gospel artist for close to 15 years. One day, seemingly out of the blue, Deitrick announced that he and his now ex-wife had parted ways and that he was engaged to be married to the mother of his infant daughter. The circumstances behind the quiet split remained unconfirmed. Now it appears that a little more insight is being offered as to why the couple may have called it quits.
A woman who claims that her name is Simone Lewis contacted popular Atlanta-based blogger Funky Dineva, claiming that she tons of tea to spill about the Preachers of LA star. Once Dineva and the woman got to texting back and forth, the woman revealed her identity.
“Simone the woman he cheated on his first wife with,” the woman said, identifying herself.
She proceeded to send Dineva screenshots of email conversations between she and Deitrick. She even shared nude pics of the gospel recording artist. In one email, Deitrick allegedly wrote:
“Simone!! This letter touched my heart. I forgive you for hanging up on me. You are my girl :-). Can’t wait to see you mama!!!”
In another email, the reality star allegedly writes.
“My phone was tripping last night. I was walking around and didn’t realize you were trying to catch me. The last text I got was GUESS WHAT! I said what’s up! Simone if I don’t respond, trust me there’s a good reason. It ain’t like I don’t want to talk to my woman crazy!!! I’m the one that’s been begging you to get a webcam right? Anyway hmmmmmmmm baby you look so good. I can’t wait to see you!”
And then, there are the nudie pics, which for obvious reasons, we can’t show here. However, if you’re just that curious, you can view the x-rated images here.
‘Preachers Of LA’ Star Deitrick Haddon Predicts How Fans Will React When They Learn More About His Shocking Divorce
The gospel music world stood still for a moment when gospel recording artist Deitrick Haddon first announced that he and his wife of 15 years, Damita Haddon, quietly divorced and that he was set to marry the mother of his infant daughter. During a recent interview with ESSENCE, the reality star revealed that fans will be offered a bit more insight into that situation and expressed that he believes the public will understand his story.
“Millions of people have gone through that, and I certainly won’t be the last. I think the public will understand it, especially those who have been divorced before. Once someone tells you their story, you have to either respect it or keep it pushing,” the “Well Done” singer said.
He went on to say that he’s not too concerned with negative responses.
“If people have anything negative to say about it, I really don’t have any energy towards that. You have to walk in my shoes in order to understand the decisions that I’ve made.”
As for why he signed on to do the show, he says that he wants to show the world that preachers are men of integrity.
“You can’t live your life according to what has been or what has passed. It’s up to you to redefine the situation. I definitely knew there was a negative history on reality shows. But I knew that this show would kind of change the game because it’s about preachers. Preachers are people who have a certain standard about themselves and they are people of integrity. Especially the guys that were hand picked for this show.”
He also addressed the stance that many Christians have on religious leaders venturing into the world of reality television, which is that the two don’t mix well.
“I’ll say they don’t read their Bible. The Bible is a reality show. You should see the stories about Paul. Before he became Saul, he was a murderer. David was a fornicator. He messed up, but he was still anointed by God. The Bible shows you the truth about every man of God. It shows you everything about them. The Bible is real. I think [reality TV] is the perfect place for Christians.”
