An 'Excited' Damita Haddon Shows Off Sparkling Engagement
Ring From Fiancé Reuben Chandler
Article By Noelle Timms:: EEW Magazine News
The happily engaged couple call themselves “Reumita”—a mash-up of the first names of Reuben Chandler and
Damita Haddon, who clearly want the world to know they are blissfully in love.
The newly blonde former Mrs. Detrick Haddon has joined her ex-husband in moving on and is using the
exposure social media gives to flaunt her new relationship.
“Thank you for supporting my fiancé Reuben and I on our journey of life and love together,” said the “No
Looking Back” singer. “We’ve been posting a lot of videos and it’s just been for your entertainment, for fun, for
In a recent social cam video, Haddon planted a kiss on Chandler’s cheek and flashed quite the engagement
sparkler while in the grocery store shopping for a Super Bowl party.
Chandler, known as “Redd” to family and friends because of his photography business “REDD Photography,” is
a Harlem, NY native and military veteran who now resides in Atlanta.
“We’re just excited about moving into our phase and our journey of love and life together,” said Haddon and
asked everyone to “Keep us in prayer. Keep us uplifted.”

The singer’s secret split from her ex-husband of 15 years went public in 2012. She was accused of engaging in
an extramarital affair with fellow married gospel singer, Isaac Caree—something she has not directly addressed.
However, in October 2013, Haddon did talk to The Kiya Amajioy show about her breakup and why she chose to
She explained, “A lot of people were wanting me to make a statement, wanting me to defend my honor and
[wondering] ‘What she gone say?’ or ‘Because she hasn’t said anything, she’s guilty’ and it was nothing of the
sort at all.”

Haddon continued, “At that moment and at that time, I don’t believe that first of all, number one, that I owe
anybody any explanation concerning my private relationship with my ex-husband. Your covenant is between
you and your spouse.”
The shortened version of her statement would be none of your business.
Perhaps the public will never know the full story, but one thing is certain. Gospel's once inseparable couple has
gone their separate ways, which both parties seem fairly happy about.
In a Feb. 3 Facebook message the soon-to-be married again Haddon wrote, “Choosing to LET GO and move
forward in life opens up the opportunity for God to usher u into ur future. The longer u hold on to ur pain and
settle in ur current state of mind u paralyze NOT GOD BUT YOURSELF.”
She added, “No pity parties necessary.... In the words of my dad ‘Slap yo self up side the head’!! Take authority
over ur emotions and submit them under the power of God and MOVE FORWARD!”
In a light-hearted social cam video, Damita Haddon proudly flaunts her engagement ring.
