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.
Yesterday, Torrei Hart promoted her new reality show, Atlanta Exes on Entertainment Tonight and during the interview, she recounted (for the millionth time) how Kevin Hart committed adultery during their marriage.
“It does hurt that my kids have to be around a woman who broke up a marriage. I was with [Kevin] when he was selling sneakers for five dollars an hour. I was at every show. I was at his first show where he ever did standup … I was his muse. I was there from the beginning.”
Kevin respectfully told his side of the story via Twitter and while fans pick sides or hope Torrei would stop uttering her ex-husband’s name, we’re looking at other Hollywood exes who showed their bitter side once their relationships, ended.
Tisk, tisk, these naughty celebrities. Everyone has had some wild times that could have ended in a visit by the po-po, but these celebrities weren’t able to wiggle their way out of those compromising positions. From violent outbursts to the downright ridiculous, these celebrities’ brushes with the law checkered the gossip pages and, admittedly, put a smirk on our faces at times. Madame Noire takes a look their trinkets from a trip to the big house with our collection of the most entertaining celebrity mugshots.
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.
Many women choose to keep their ex-husband’s last name after divorce for so many reasons. Some keep it for the sake of their children, some say it’s part of their personal brand, and others say they “earned it.” Whatever the reason, the choice always seems to draw speculation of ill intent, but that makes these women no nevermind. Here are 15 celebs who’ve kept it movin’ with the last name in tow.
Porsha Stewart has decided to keep Kordell Stewart’s last name despite their pending divorce. With all that he put her through you would think she would want no ties to a man who kept her under lock and key. Porsha explained on the Wendy Williams Show why she chose to keep Stewart as her last name: “I’m going to keep Stewart. It’s not his name, it’s my name,” said Porsha. “I was Porsha Williams and I was at one point in my life before I got married. Marriage has taught me so much. I’m a whole ‘nother woman now. So, I’m going to own that last name. It belongs to me.”
Last week we told you that rumors have been circulating about a Hollywood Exes spin-off show, which would be starring Tameka Foster, the ex-wife of R&B crooner Usher Raymond, and Christina Johnson, ex-wife of Cee Lo. Since our initial report, speculation regarding additional cast members being added have surfaced, including Kim Elba, ex-wife of famed actor Idris Elba and Sheree Buchanan, ex-wife of NFL star Ray Buchanan. As if that star-studded line-up weren’t enough, we hear that Pilar Sanders, ex-wife of Deion Sanders, has also been added to the cast.
The Jasmine Brand is reporting that Pilar is currently negotiating her contract with VH1. Speculations have yet to be officially confirmed by the network, but they’d be crazy not to sign her up. It’s one thing to read about the scandalous, drama-fied stories, but it’s another to see it all go down with your own two eyes. Within the last two years, Pilar has lost custody of her children, been abandoned and sued by her friend, co-author and publicist and had her divorce finalized. It would be pretty interesting to see how she’s adjusting in the aftermath of it at all.
It’s also interesting to note that Pilar’s ex-husband, Deion, recently landed a reality show with the OWN network. How interesting would it be to watch both of their shows and compare notes?
We’ll continue to keep you posted as this story develops.

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?
Almost anytime Pilar Sanders made headlines for her tumultuous relationship with her estranged husband Deion, their dramatic child custody battle or their bitter divorce, Pilar’s “friend” and publicist, Kali Bowyer, was in some way, shape or form on the scene, defending her client. The two were even working on a tell-all book together about Pilar’s alleged abusive relationship with Deion titled, Saving Sanders: The Pilar Sanders Untold Story. It appears that this is all about to change though. A couple of weeks ago, Bowyer released an official statement to Rhymes With Snitch, announcing her resignation as Pilar’s publicist. She claims she resigned because Pilar provided her with “several falsehoods” while they were collaborating for her upcoming tell-all. An excerpt from her statement reads:
“I have officially resigned as the publicist for Ms. Pilar Sanders; it became evident that Pilar was providing me with falsehoods, via a multitude of sources and documents that have been brought to my attention…
I had the pleasure of speaking directly to Mr. Deion Sanders over the weekend, a man who truly showed his character to me during that conversation. Sadly, all I can say is what a horrific situation Pilar has placed her children in and thankfully, they are safe, well provided for and protected now.
As for the coming weeks, I will continue to forward the appropriate information and documentation to Deion’s camp. In addition, a copy of the book will be provided to Mr. Sanders prior to publishing to assure the validity of some sections.”
Not only is Kali cooperating with “Team Deion,” but according to Rumor Fix, she is also suing Pilar for $180,000 over 10 months of work and loss of commissions “because she flaked on deals.”
“After a long week of thought, I have agreed with my lawyers to file suit against Pilar, not only for the position she has placed me in publicly but also personally and professionally,” Kali said in a statement.
Does any of this surprise you at all?
When you go from a person who is probably locally known in whatever town you live in, to someone who is known through out the nation, I’m betting it can be a little jarring. You begin to get perks, people are putting you in the likes of a celebrity, and you get offers to get paid for just being you. If you’re a person who has earned this fame by pursuing and excelling at a talent, it might be annoying, but people are more prone to understand why you think people should know you. However, when reality stars have done it, their fame then turns into infamy.
There has been a lot of allegations that certain reality stars have let their fame go to their heads, so let’s take a look at a few, and if I missed anyone, let’s sound off in the comment section:
‘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.
