“Preachers of LA” star Deitrick Haddon has a lot on his plate these days. The newlywed is a busy father of two beautiful daughters, he’s filming the second season of his hit Oxygen reality show and he’s gearing up for the April 22nd release of his new his gospel album. In the midst of his many ventures, the pastor has even more work to do to clear his name after nude selfies hit the web a few months back. (Talk about a PR problem!)
Well, after much Internet and church chit-chat, Deitrick has finally addressed his alleged penis pics. During an interview with HipHollywood at BET’s Annual Celebration of Gospel, the 40-year-old artist said “sometimes we fall short just being human.”
“You just live, nobody is perfect out there. Everybody makes mistakes. I’ve made my mistakes in my life and I don’t think there’s anybody on the other side of this camera that has not made a mistake,” he said. “The only difference is us being in the spotlight and we are preachers and we are held to a different standard. Sometimes we fall short just being human. The only thing you can do is just keep moving and keep going.”
“I have tough skin,” he added. “When you’re doing what we do, people are going to always talk. It is what it is.”
Without confirming or denying the photo, he jokingly asked: “Whose picture is that?”
As far as “Preachers of LA,” he said “we are taping now actually.”
“They are all up in my house – cameras everywhere,” he shared. “The goal of this show is to really show the flip-side of ministry, to show you the truth about who we are…We are called ministers of the gospel. I’ve been singing the gospel for years and people need to know that we are real and we have real issues like anybody else.”
“It’s ground breaking TV,” he concluded.
