So apparently it’s Deitrick Haddon’s turn to clap back. A few months ago, we told you that his’ ex-wife, Damita, broke her silence regarding their split and him stepping out on her. Now, he’s back to speaking about their split again as well. For one, he says that just one year in his marriage to his current wife, Domonique, has been “more successful” than the 14 years he spent with Damita.
“We just had our one year anniversary on July 20 and it has been amazing. I think I’m bringing experience because I was married for 14 years,” he told CocoaFab. “It has been more successful than being married to my ex. If me and Dominique didn’t work today after one year I would still say I had a successful marriage that was better than my last situation. That’s tough, but it’s the truth. I’m gonna leave it at that.”
He also commented on Damita’s recent decision to speak on their split.
“She absolutely has a right to speak on her situation. We were married for years so she has a right to speak on it. I don’t necessarily agree with half of it but here it is. There are three sides to every story. There’s my side, your side, and there’s the actual truth. All I can say is that Deitrick does not lie,” he said.
“I realize I don’t have to tell anybody out there my business so if I speak something it’s flat out true. I really don’t speak on her. I let her talk and say what she wants to say. I congratulate on her marriage. I wish her well and wish her blessing in her new marriage and pray we don’t make the same mistakes. I know I’m working hard on not making the same mistakes. It could be because I’m older. We were too young. I’m older and I’m bringing in a lot of wisdom from bad decision making and a lot of stuff I did and I’m coming in more solid and more mature than I was before.”
“As far as all the stuff she said, at the end of the day, it’s her life and I have always spoken what I have spoken. We should move on. Everybody should move on. I knew she was going to speak. I wish she would have spoken way sooner. That would have kept me from having to speak,” he continued.
The “Preachers Of LA” star concluded by saying that when he first heard about Damita’s recent interview, he thought about two things: his wife and two children.
“I got a bunch of kids and I was listening to that interview like, ‘Oh Lord!’ I’m so far removed from all that stuff,” he said. “I got these babies over here screaming and I got a whole new life. New wife and everything.”
