‘You Can Eat When I See You Next Week:’ Deion Sanders Allowed His Son To Go Hungry, Says An Excerpt From Pilar’s Forthcoming Tell-All
Back in April we told you that Pilar Sanders has partnered up with her longtime friend and publicist, Kali Bowyer to pen an über detailed tell-all book about the alleged violent years Sanders spent with her estranged husband Deion. As previously reported, the book is titled, Saving Sanders: The Pilar Sanders Untold Story and will be written by Bowyer. Mara over at 4UMF has acquired an excerpt from the book- and let’s just say, the ladies are pulling no punches.
In one shocking excerpt, Kali claims that there was a time that Pilar was unable to feed her son and that Deion simply turned his back on them.
“While Pilar was living out of the hotel those few months, scraping by day-to-day. Now don’t get me wrong, she was not staying at some dive – quite the opposite. We had been on the phone talking for quite sometime that day when I heard her son call his father and say to him, ‘Daddy, I’m hungry, and mommy has no money for food.’ After a silent pause, Deion replied to his son, ‘You can eat when I see you next week.’”
In another excerpt, Kali recounts Pilar’s emotional reaction to her children being taken away.
“I’ll never forget the night my phone rang at around 3:30 am. I had answereddead out of my sleep to hear just uncontrollable sobbing from a heartbroken Pilar, who could only mutter the words, ‘Kal, he took my babies.’ As I sat there and cried with her, she was completely devastated and blown away. I do not think this was something she ever imagined in a million years could happen to her. It had been a rough few months – doing my best to combat every attack Deion made. Watching my friend die inside, I refused to sit back at let this happen. I promised Pilar that I would fight for her.”
She also touched on Pilar and Deion’s alleged domestic violence dispute.
“The headline making argument – a joke is more like it. What did not make the headlines is how Deion attempted to kill Pilar by picking up a statue in a fit of rage and hitting her over the head. Thank God her childhood best friend Dee was present in the house to witness the entire fight. After Dee jumped in to try to help Pilar, Deion responded by punching her in the face.”
Saving Sanders is slated to hit shelves fall 2013.
Celebrities break up all the time. But some are less willing to let go and move on than others. These 15 famous folks– with their childish name calling, trivial lawsuits and stuck-in-the-past mentalities – fit into this category perfectly.
Usher and Tameka
Thinking back on the devolution of this relationship, it’s hard to tell who was the more scorned of the two. Both Tameka and Usher went hard during their divorce and child custody proceedings, digging up dirt, making wild accusations and tearing each other apart limb by limb. Usher accused Tameka of having a “revolving door” of nannies watching their children, and Tameka suggested not too politely that Usher was a pill popping addict who slept with her bridesmaids. Their intense legal mudslinging lasted right on up to the judge’s final rulings and beyond with subsequent appeals.
Pilar Sanders To Give Up The Nitty-Gritty In Tell-All Book About Alleged Abusive Years Spent With Deion Sanders
You’ve watched Deion and Pilar Sanders’s tumultuous marriage play out in the headlines and pretty soon you’ll be able to cozy up on your favorite sofa, sip tea out of your favorite mug and read Pilar’s firsthand account of how it all went down. The estranged wife of retired NFL star Deion Sanders recently revealed to Hip Hollywood that she is planning to write a tell-all book titled, Saving Sanders: The Pilar Sanders Untold Story, which is said to be about her troubled and “abusive” years spent with Deion.
“I want to be a mentor to other women who have been abused, by sharing my story, my struggles and letting them in, it will not only help heal myself but others experiencing the same trials and struggles as well,” the fitness guru told Hip Hollywood of her forthcoming literary project.
“There are thousands of women fighting for their rights, their children and their own identity out there. We as women and mothers need to ban together to show support for injustice. I will continue my fight as long as I walk this earth, and with Jesus at my side all will prevail,” she continued.
We hear the book will be co-written by her publicist and friend, Kali Bowyer, who seems to have been around and stuck with her through much of the controversy. Bowyer describes the book as the “true, uncut story about the abuse Pilar endured, how she built an empire with him, and how he cheated on her.”
Deion and Pilar’s marriage woes have been playing out in public for a few years now. The latest bit to make headlines was Pilar losing sole custody of the couple’s daughter, which was followed up with the alleged ex-girlfriend of Gospel star Fred Hammond coming forward, expressing that she had witnessed Bishop T.D. Jakes coach Deion on how to hide money in preparation of the estranged couple’s forthcoming divorce and prenuptial proceedings.

Fred Hammond’s Alleged Ex Makes Explosive Claims That T.D. Jakes Helped Deion Sanders Hide Money For Prenup Proceedings
A couple of weeks ago we told you that the courts awarded Deion Sanders primary custody of his two sons. We also told you that Pilar sent out a cryptic tweet, calling out Bishop T.D. Jakes for committing some sort of unspecified underhanded act.
While it appeared that Pilar was blaming Bishop Jakes for helping her estranged husband to acquire primary custody of their sons, the latest claims to hit the web say differently. Cherry on Top recently interviewed a woman by the name of Nikke Sanni, who claims to be the ex-girlfriend of gospel singer Fred Hammond. During the interview, she dropped a huge bomb, alleging that she witnessed Bishop Jakes assist Deion Sanders in hiding money from the courts as he prepared for legal proceedings surrounding his divorce and prenuptial agreement that he signed with soon-to-be ex-wife, Pilar. Nikke alleges that one day, Deion and T.D. Jakes both met up at Fred’s home where he [Deion] revealed that he would be heading for divorce court soon and that he was afraid that Pilar would take all of his money.
“We were at Fred’s house. It was Fred, T.D. Jakes, Deion Sanders, and another man of whom I have no idea who he is. He came in with Deion, he left with Deion, I don’t know who he is. And that was my first time ever seeing Deion,” Nikke started.
“He [Deion] was getting ready to file for a divorce, and there was something wrong with the prenuptial agreement, and he did not want her [Pilar] to take his money. He was like worried. It was one of those meetings where somebody is like, ‘Man you know, something is wrong with this prenup, and I need some help because I don’t want her to take everything.’ And T.D. Jakes was there helping him, giving him advice, kind of guiding him rather, on what to do with his money so that it wouldn’t look like he had so much when the divorce happens. It was only T.D. Jakes and Deion talking. Fred wasn’t really saying anything, and the other guy wasn’t really saying anything. It was just a Deion and T.D. Jakes type situation,” she continued.
“I don’t remember the specifics. I just know he was telling him, ‘This is what you do. You put your money here…’ Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But, no, I do not remember exactly. I wish I did because I’d be more than happy to help her, but I don’t know, and I can’t make it up.”
When asked why the men would speak so openly around her about such a private subject, she responded:
“I wasn’t sitting directly in the room. I was eavesdropping in the room. I wasn’t like sitting on the couch with them…they were all sitting in the sitting area. I was eavesdropping on the meeting. I came down for a second to get a good look, and went back up, but I was not invited, nor was I sitting in the sitting room with them at the time, no.”
Nikke also revealed that while she is a bit scared about going against T.D. Jakes and Deion Sanders, she will be testifying on behalf of Pilar in court. These claims certainly won’t be shocking to those who have believed that Deion has been playing dirty all along.
What do you think of her claims?
Last week reported that after a lengthy custody battle, a judge awarded Deion Sanders primary custody of his two sons. And now, we’ve just learned that the retired football star has also been granted custody of his 9-year-old daughter, whom he also shares with estranged wife, Pilar. This appears to be the final blow for the model because while she fought for her husband for custody of the boys, she retained custody of their daughter.
Pilar’s camp tells RumorFix that she was caught off guard by the decision and wasn’t aware that she lost custody until she went to pick her daughter up from school.
“Pilar’s legal team was caught completely off guard. She found out as she was driving up to pick up her daughter at school today. The whole thing is unbelievable. She has been a stay at home mother all there children’s lives,” said one of her reps.
Pilar’s publicist, Kali Bowyer struck back in the media, suggesting that the judge presiding over the case was somehow corrupted.
“Unbelievable. Whose payroll is this judge on? Certainly not the taxpayers.,” Bowyer told the NY Post.
The mother of three took to her Twitter to express her disappointment about how things went down.
She also vowed to be the voice for other mothers who have “unjustly” lost custody their children.
According to reports, the courts have arranged for Pilar to see her children every Thursday for two hours and on the first, third and fifth weekends of every month, she’ll have the children from Thursday to Sunday.
What do you think of the court’s decision to grant Deion primary custody of his daughter?
Yesterday we told you that television producer and girlfriend of Deion Sanders, Tracey E. Edmonds testified in the seemingly never-ending child custody case between Deion and his estranged wife Pilar. Today it was announced that the courts finally reached a decision. According to TMZ, Deion was granted full custody of the couple’s two sons, who are 11 and 13. Pilar and Deion will share custody of their 9-year-old daughter.
Deion quickly took to his Twitter page to celebrate his victory.
“GOD IS SO GOOD AND FAITHFUL! !!! GOD IS SO WONDERFUL! TRUTH,” he tweeted.
“Thank all of you whom prayed for me and my children. The Truth is what it is. Never doubt God! Truth”
Meanwhile, Pilar thanked her supporters, despite her loss.
“Thank U So Much 2 Every1 Who Has Supported n Prayed 4 Me & My Babies! 4 Those Who Came 2 Tell The TRUTH Thank U 4 Not Being Bullied Down,” she tweeted.
“I’ve never seen anything like this! WOWOWOW!”
She also tweeted a cryptic message to Bishop T.D. Jakes and Pastor Omar Jahwar, accusing them of committing unspecified, but underhanded deeds. Many believe it has something to do with her custody battle.
We’re not 100% sure what that’s about, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted. So far there has been no word from Bishop Jakes or his representatives.
Are you shocked by the outcome of the case? What do you think of the shot Pilar took at Bishop Jakes and Pastor Omar Jahwar?
It feels as if the child custody legal dispute involving retired NFL star Deion Sanders and his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders has been dragging on forever and a day. And according to Deion’s girlfriend Tracy E. Edmonds, Pilar just wants to drag it out some more. Dallas News is reporting that the television producer took the stand on Monday and implied that her boyfriend’s estranged wife was attempting to weasel her way out of a court-issued subpoena when she didn’t show up to court last Friday. According to Edmonds, Pilar was in the courthouse parking lot, she just never went inside.
Pilar’s attorney Luke Gunnstaks confirmed that his client was in the parking lot on Friday and that she was being harassed Edmonds. Tracy argued that she simply waved to Pilar in the car as they were both leaving the courthouse. During her time on the stand, Gunnstaks questioned Edmonds regarding whether or not she received an engagement ring from Deion and if she’s ever slept at his home while his children were present. She declined to answer both questions. The attorney also probed about reality TV projects that Edmonds may have been working on involving Deion and his children. She confessed to having worked on a web series called Sports Dads. She also revealed that in the past, she worked on a reality show centered around Deion’s home and work life, but it was scrapped.
Once Pilar took the stand, things got interesting as she was repeatedly interrogated about what she would do for work and how she planned on supporting her children.
“Obviously, I would opt for employment that would maximize my time with my children,” she said.
She was also asked if she blamed Deion for “for not being a star.”
“I think I’m a star,” she replied.
Interestingly, a few days prior, the model expressed that she believed every woman should be made to feel like a star, via her Twitter page.
What do you make of this?
If things continue to go down this road, Pilar Sanders is in trouble.
Last Wednesday, A Dallas court ruled that while Deion Sanders and soon to be ex-wife Pilar will share custody of their three children in a week on/week off schedule, Deion is the only parent that will hold exclusive rights over the children. Well, at least until the final divorce trial, according to The Dallas Morning News.
What does this mean? Judge Ray Wheless decided that Deion will solely be allowed to make decisions about the kids’ primary residence, school(s) they attend and choose their athletic activities. Athletic activities? That sounds weird that they would eve be involved in the ruling. They’ll share all other decisions.
In December, a court granted Deion custody of their two sons, Shilo and Shedeur, while Pilar was granted custody of their daughter, Shelomi. She also had her child support reduced from $10,000 to $5,000.
Pilar has also maintained that she is a victim of Deion’s celebrity status and that his finances are doing all of the talking.
Their divorce trial should begin somewhere around March 4th.
In the meantime, Deion will have to pay legal for the amicus attorney who represents the interests of their children. Both he and Pilar will share the medical bills.
Wow, this is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. Based on reports, it seems like the adults may have forgotten about the most important thing: the kids (which explains why they had to bring in another attorney).
Do you think Pilar has a point in saying that Deion’s money is actually doing all the talking or has she presented herself in such a way that isn’t pleasing to the courts?
It has been a rocky road for some of Hollywood’s most notable names when it comes to their children. Custody battles aren’t exactly a rarity in Hollywood, but it it’s not often that judges rule in favor of men and award them custody of their children while offering their ex-wives visitation and sometimes no rights at all. That’s the situation all of these celebrity women found themselves in as they had to relinquishment their position as sole guardian and try their best to co-parent from afar.

It seems that Pilar isn’t the only one who is completely fed up with the seemingly shady ways of Deion Sanders. According to RumorFix, on New Years Eve the retired NFL star’s divorce attorneys filed a motion requesting permission to withdraw from the case. I know you’re probably wondering, “what attorney in their right mind would want to withdraw from such a high profile, seemingly never-ending divorce battle between a wealthy NFL broadcaster and his model wife?” Especially considering how long Pilar and Deion have been duking it out in court; the case seems like the gift that keeps on giving. Well, court documents filed by Deion’s attorneys Jody L. Johnson and Rick Robertson reveal that they wish to drop out of the case for two very crucial reasons. One being that they are “unable to effectively communicate with their client” and the other is that Deion is “unable to pay his attorneys pursuant to the terms of the employment agreements with his attorneys.”
Deion may want to begin trying to smooth things over with his lawyers considering the fact that he has some pretty important court dates coming up, including a January 9th child custody hearing, a January 22nd prenup arbitration hearing and an additional jury trial in relation to their children on March 4th.
Of course, “Team Pilar” didn’t miss out on this rare opportunity to get one up on Deion while he’s probably somewhere in a corner licking his wounds. Pilar’s spitfire publicist Kali Bowyer wasted no time reaching out to Cherry On Top to discuss the latest misfortune to fall upon the former NFL star as well as to threaten him and any bloggers who may be working in cahoots with him to destroy Pilar’s “good name”.
“Nothing surprises me at this point, first he screws Pilar out of her support, now his legal counsel, what’s next? I look at it this way all Deion had to do was write a check and do right by the mother of his children. That’s what this all comes down to, a dollar, a simple dollar. Deion has been very blessed throughout his career and to have made the income he has, why would he not want his children to continue on with a similar lifestyle? Spite … that’s all it is spite, hate and resentment. Sadly, a new year has no resolution in anytime soon. I would ask to have the madness to stop, the lies (which are now leading to libel law suits), he [Deion] promises small time ‘blogs’ exclusives and to put them in touch with other sports figures & celebrities in exchange to attempt to make her look bad, writing n*sty lies. At the end these bloggers will realize they got screwed as well as ending up in a court room themselves.”
