Update 4:59 p.m.:
Deion Sanders’ son Shilo Sanders responded to the comments his half-sister made about his mother, and he’s not happy. Deiondra, however, seems to believe that it’s actually Pilar pretending to be Shilo. See screenshot below.
Deion Sanders’ daughter, Deionda Sanders, took advantage of social media’s beloved Throwback Thursday to throw a bit of shade at her father’s ex-wife, Pilar Sanders. The photo was from Deion and Pilar’s 1999 wedding day.
“#TBT We knew it all along… LOL,” she captioned the photo, drawing attention to the amusing facial expressions plastered on her and her brother’s faces.
It’s no secret that Deion and Pilar have experienced their share of issues. Their nightmare divorce was finalized in 2013 and just last month, the retired athlete won a $2.2 million defamation lawsuit against Pilar after she began claiming that she suffered domestic abuse at the hands of Deion.
Apparently, folks were not amused by Deiondra’s joke because the comments section of that photo was quickly filled with people scolding the young woman.
“Pilar is your siblings’ mother! I really don’t like your father anyway! It’s none your business what happened between them!” exclaimed one commenter.
“@shedeursanders don’t worry karma going to hit your sister right back. She mad your mother looks way better than hers,” another shared while tagging another one of Deion’s kids.
“Stay out of people’s grown business grow up child no matter what have respect on some kind of level idiot!!! Kids these days have no clue of respect& loyalty spoiled little sh-ts that think they deserve it all. Foh,” wrote another.
We’re actually quite shocked by how many people are in their feelings about this. What do you think?
Last December Deion Sanders sued his ex-wife, Pilar Sanders, for defamation of character after she claimed the former NFL pro had physically abused her. The fact that Deion was awarded primary custody of their three kids made that accusation a bit shaky, and now a judgement awarding the star athlete $2.2 million seems to add more credence to his claim that he never laid hands on the woman he was married to for 13 years.
As you’ll recall, things got very ugly once Deion served Pilar with divorce papers in the fall of 2011. From there, Pilar claimed Deion would only give her money to care for their children in exchange for sexual favors, and then came the accusation of physical abuse and infidelity. Through it all, Deion, who was reportedly only seeking less than $1 million in damages, rarely spoke about the very public divorce and it seems that silence has served him well, legally at least. According to TMZ, the defamation settlement Deion was just awarded will offset any money he would have paid Pilar in the divorce settlement. Pilar’s attorneys, of course, say they plan to appeal.
When football legend Deion Sanders saw his son talking about the hood on Twitter, he felt like he needed to set the young man straight. He felt the need recently to remind his son that he’s got a $1 million trust fund, reports Yahoo.
It all started when Deion Sanders Jr., a football player at Southern Methodist University, sent out a tweet about “hood donuts.”
Gotta get the hood doughnuts almost every morning. If my doughnuts don't come in a plain white box, I don't want them!

His father responded with a tweet, comparing his son to the Huxtables from The Cosby Show.

But it didn’t stop there. Jr. defended his culinary tastes with this tweet:
@DeionSanders lol I still love the hood's doughnuts

Do you think Deion was wrong to call his son out on Twitter and tell everyone about his trust fund?
Unfortunately, over the years, we’ve had to watch quite a few custody battles play out in the public eye. For reasons ranging from funny money and poor behavior, we were shocked when news came out that these famous men were granted primary and sole custody of their children over the mothers of their kids. Here are a few examples that definitely had people talking.

Deion and Pilar Sanders will go down in the history books as one of the messiest celebrity breakups of all time. It seems like they’re in the news– mostly Pilar– bad mouthing each other or talking about their equally messy custody battle. And apparently, this week is no different. But now, someone’s going to serve some time.
According to the Dallas News, today, Pilar was sentenced to seven days in the county jail.
After hearing from witnesses and attorneys for Deion Sanders a judge found Pilar in contempt for failing to return her children to Deion after visitation and for taking possession of them when she shouldn’t have. These actions were in violation of the former couple’s divorce decree.
Initially, the judge sentenced her to 30 days in jail but then suspended that sentence for a year.
As she was being taken into custody, Pilar said she objected to the day’s proceedings. Earlier, she appeared before the judge with no attorney, saying she was there under threat, duress and coercion. She told the court,“I am not a part of the United States corporation.” Pilar had no witnesses to testify on her behalf and when the judge asked her if she had any questions for Deion’s witnesses, she said, “I stand mute.”
The hearing pertained to two accounts violating the divorce decree and the defamation suit Deion filed against Pilar last month.
The judge ordered that Pilar remove any statements that could be construed as damaging to her ex husband from social media. That case will come to trial on March 2.
Deion testified that the NFL has investigated Pilar’s allegations, which she’s posted on social media. Sanders said the nature of the posts have threatened negotiations to renew his contract and are jeopardizing his livelihood.
The judge also ruled that Pilar should not have possession of the former couple’s three children until further notice from the court.
During the hearing Pilar cited several legal statutes, saying she did not recognize the jurisdiction of the court. And when asked to give her name on the witness stand, she said: ““I am Pilar Sanders Love El Dey Allodial Moorish American.”
Deion testified that this past summer, after her visitation with the children had expired, Pilar did not return them. A police officer testified that he made three trips to her home attempting to return the children to Deion. The first time no one answered the door, the second Pilar would not allow the deputies inside and the third time, the officer had authority to enter the home by force to retrieve the children.
The officer testified that during their interactions, Pilar said that she was a Moorish American, under the laws of Morroco and the laws of the United States did not apply to her.
Once the children were returned to Deion, she filed a kidnapping complaint with Child Protective Services (CPS), who contacted the police. Because the court ordered the children to be taken, the authorities did not pursue charges. Another CPS investigator found that Pilar’s allegations of abuse and neglect had been investigated and ruled out.
I don’t have much to say. The story basically speaks for itself. But I will say I would love to ask Deion how he didn’t see these glaring red flags before he married Pilar?
If you’ve been paying even minimal attention to the blogs lately, you will have seen the very messy divorce and custody battle Pilar and Deion Sanders have been undergoing. It’s been an all-out brawl with Pilar lodging some type of character attack against Deion every other week.
First, she posted pictures of bruises he’d allegedly given her. And then she claimed that Deion had abused her children. All of this came after Deion was given primary custody of three of their children.
And Deion had been pretty quiet about all of it.
Apparently he’s had enough. And is suing his ex-wife for more than $200,000–but less than a million. He claims that she’s defamed him on social media as well as television. Sanders cites Pilar for claims of “child abuse, assault, murder and other crimes.”
Seeing as how Pilar has been everywhere with these claims, I don’t know how she’s going to argue her case.
Anyway, according to court documents Deion claims that Pilar…
“…has published and continues to publish statements on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and other social media accusing Plaintiff of child abuse, abuse of the Defendant, assault, murder, and other crimes (the False Statements). She has also appeared on television, specifically the Bill O’Reilly Show, making similar abuse allegations.”
Sanders said he has asked Pilar to cease and desist but she has refused. Deion believes her behavior will continue and he wants punitive damages for defamation.
Just last month, Pilar posted a YouTube video with a child who appeared to be the couple’s youngest daughter telling her mother that Deion kicked and choked her brother, their son.
Last year, Deion was awarded custody of the former couple’s three children, Shilo, 14, Shedeur, 12 and their daughter Shelomi, 10.
Pilar also tweeted a link to an audio clip of her two sons talking about their father’s alleged abuse. In it, you can hear Shedeur saying “Daddy told me and Shilo that if we chose hime we can go over to your house whenever we want.”
The clip has since been removed.
This whole thing is less about who’s right or who we should believe but more about the sad reality that the children are in the middle of all of this.
What do you think will happen with this case, will Pilar have to pay up? (Does she even have it?) And if it makes it to court, do you think Deion will win?
Deion Sanders may not be the first man you'd think to go to for advice, but he delivered some sound knowledge -- and hope -- to us when we got a chance to talk with him at OWN's offices in New York. Deion was there to talk about the next season of his reality show, "Deion's Family Playbook," and as he gushed over his new lady, Tracey Edmonds, and refused to slander his ex-wife Pilar, he also offered some wisdom to women still waiting for "the one" to come along. Trust us, you'll want to hear these words of encouragement.
Check out the video above as Deion talks about being a single father, dating, and issues in the NFL. What do you think?
Pilar Sanders Tries To Appeal Prenup Judgement…By Arguing That She Shouldn’t Be Governed By The U.S. Law
Pilar and Deion Sanders have been officially divorced for quite some time now. But apparently, the aftermath still lingers. According to TMZ, the former “Football Wives” star is still making attempts to have their prenup judgement overturned.
Her most recent stunt to have the ruling overturned reportedly included claims that United States laws should not apply to her because she’s now a Moorish National Aboriginal, Indigenous Natural Person. In short, the former model, who now goes by the name Pilar Biggers Sanders Love El-Dey, claims she’s only subject to Moroccan law now. In the court documents, she went on to state that she’s now affiliated with the Moorish Divine and National Movement of the World.
Unsurprisingly, her appeal was dismissed, even prior to this recent filing. However, for some reason, she reportedly believes the new development will breathe life back into her case.
We’re not really sure what Pilar has been up to lately, but it appears that she may be going off of the deep end. Hopefully, everything is okay with her.
Celebrities continue to prove they’re regular people just like the rest of us, unfortunately in some of the worst ways possible. When it comes to these celebs with child support drama it took a judge to get them to cough up cash for their kids. Were they to blame or were the mothers of their children asking for too much?
Nas was happy to take himself off of the market and marry singer Kelis but that marriage soon went up in flames. In December 2009, the Queensbridge rapper was ordered to pay the R&B singer $51,000 a month in alimony and child support, but the bad economy worked in Nas’ favor and 13 months later he was able to convince the judge that his payments should be lowered. Even though at one point Nas was in arrears and owed Kelis more than $300,000 in back child support, the judge agreed to lower his payments to $20,000 a month in alimony and $5,000 in child support.
Last month we told you that OWN had officially picked up Deion Sanders’ new family friendly reality show, “Deion’s Family Playbook.” As previously reported, the series will document the life of the former NFL and MLB player as he juggles his family life, professional life and his long distance relationship with girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds.
“[Deion’s Family Playbook] is the hilarious and compelling real life story of Deion Sanders, the football legend, baseball great, broadcaster, Hall of Famer, international superstar, businessman, educator and father, as he strives to keep all the facets of his complicated, crazy and chaotic life in balance and under control,” the show’s press release reads
“Deion faces the challenges of raising his five children in a household that also includes his mother, her foster children and his aunt and uncle, while guiding the future of Prime Prep Academy, the charter school he created to try to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in under served areas. He plays the role of father, leader, bread-winner, coach and teacher for everyone around him. And in those rare instances when he gets a little overwhelmed, his girlfriend, producer and businesswoman Tracey Edmonds, who has two sons of her own, is there to help pick up the slack.”
OWN recently released a trailer and a couple of teasers for the show, which is slated to debut on March 1 and it looks like it has the potential to be pretty entertaining. In addition to Deion’s children, who all have pretty big personalities, viewers will get to witness the retired professional athlete interact with his girlfriend, Tracey.
“You gon’ marry me one day, baby,” he asks Tracey in the trailer.
Her response to that question, of course, is not included in the clip, but nosy folks like us are dying to know what her response is, especially since the two have both been married before in the past.
