Deon Derrico Requested Urgent Prayers

Undoubtedly, it has been a journey over the past few years for the Doubling Down With The Derricos family. Likewise, nearly one year ago, fans learned that Deon Derrico’s departed brother, Chris, had a son, Amani. Although Amani was facing health concerns during the last season, he was able to continue with his daily life. However, Deon sent out a call for prayers just a few weeks ago letting fans know that Amani was rushed in for an emergency liver transplant. Sadly, not long after receiving the transplant, Amani’s body rejected the new liver and Deon quickly requested fans pray as he was back on the transplant list. But now he is sharing an update on how he is doing.

  1. I don’t think anyone can make enough money for Karen, she goes from one thing to another. I don’t blame him for not telling her much bc she goes nuts a d can’t handle anything. And man when he tried to tell her about the new house it was crazy. she thought he had to tell her every thing he was doing while working on it. omg it handled it was better than I would have. she to to be happy with herself and satisfied sometimes. she seemed to never seemed to be.

    1. Are you insane?!!! Karen has carried, labored and birthed 15 babies!!! You would think that having that many children, with “no doubt” endless expenses! She has a right to be concerned about the money. She’s also the other spouse in marriage. Besides, we have absolutely no idea what their life struggles were, behind the scene!!!
