Pilar Sanders Sentenced To A Week In Jail For Violating Custody Agreement

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?

He’s Had Enough! Deion Sanders Sues Ex Wife Pilar For Defamation Of Character

Deion Sanders Sues Ex Wife Pilar For Defamation Of Character

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.

Until now.

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.

So Y’all Not Gone Pay For Your Kids? Celebs With Child Support Drama

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

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.

“[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.

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.

Deion Sanders Accused Of Choking Prep School Employee

Well ladies, we have bad news and good news. The bad news is that Deion Sanders is making negative headlines yet again. The good news is that his latest scandal does not involve his ex-wife, Pilar Sanders. According to Dallas Morning News, yesterday an altercation occurred at Deion’s educational institute, Prim Prep School, between him and an employee named Kevin Jefferson.

The circumstances surround what led to the altercation are not 100% clear, but reports suggest that Deion was unhappy about the grades of some of his student athletes. Kevin accuses Deion of choking him after they got into a verbal disagreement during a faculty meeting.

“He was a little upset and a little emotional. He walked back to the back of the classroom to where I was sitting in a desk. As he got closer to me, I stood up because he was kind of standing over me and he just kind of kept talking to me and at me and then he just grabbed me by my throat and kind of threw me to the ground. Some people had to get him off of me. I’m going to pursue my options with my attorney. I just think it’s unacceptable in a professional environment particularly at a school for that kind of behavior to go on.”

Kevin says that he immediately spoke to police and went to the hospital to treat any injuries he sustained during the incident. He also claims that prior to this isolated altercation, he has never had any other confrontations with Deion. Deion has since taken to Twitter to defend himself against the allegations.

 

 

 

 

Deion also spoke to WFAA-TV’s Brett Shipp about the incident.

“Mr. Jefferson was not beat down. He was not beat up. He was not hit. He was none of that. Mr. Jefferson and I got into a confrontation about the welfare of these kids. And we’ll get into another one. Until you start taking care of these kids, I’ll going to be on a rampage. Until we start serving these kids in Dallas like the kids are served in Fort Worth, and better, I’m going to be on the same rampage, because the teachers are frustrated. We’re frustrated,” Deion said during a phone interview.

Well, if nothing else, we certainly smell a lawsuit brewing.

Pilar Can’t Be Happy About This: Deion Sanders Gets New OWN Reality Show

"Deion Sanders and Tracey Edmonds pf"

I just know Pilar is somewhere fuming. I can just hear her now You mean to tell me you’re doing a reality show with the new chick?! I was your WIFE…” Naw, I’m just kidding I don’t know that lady. And while she might not be livid, I’m sure she feels a type of way about her husband heading back to reality tv with his girlfriend Tracey E. Edmonds (Babyface’s and then Eddie Murphy’s ex wife).

Just today OWN announced the new lineup of shows for 2014 and look whose name showed up. None other than Mr. Prime Time himself, former football player, baseball player, rapper and sports analyst Deion Sanders.

Can’t really say I’m surprised, Deion can’t stay out of the limelight. You may remember he and Pilar had their own reality show in 2008 called “Deion and Pilar: Prime Time Love.”

Anyway, this is how the network describes the new show tentatively titled “It’s Prime Time” (That moniker is clearly not going anywhere any time soon.):

It’s Prime’s Time (working title) 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. 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 underserved 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. The series is produced by Edmonds Entertainment, Prime Time Media Ventures and Rogue Atlas Productions in association with Lionsgate. Executive producers are Eli Frankel, Tracey E. Edmonds and Deion Sanders.

Initially, I was surprised to hear that Tracey Edmonds would abandon her role behind the camera and let people film her, but seeing that she’s producing the show it only makes sense. She’s another one who stays hustling. Apparently, she doesn’t seem to be worried about the reality tv relationship curse.

This seems interesting as we all know Deion is a character. Since the children are going to be in the show, wonder if their mother Pilar will make an appearance. Ha! Doubt it.

What do you think about this, is it a good idea? Will you watch?
