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?
