You would be hard pressed to forget the custody drama between Deion and Pilar Sanders. At one point it became uncomfortable to write about it because it seemed like Pilar was suffering from some mental health issues.
Though the custody battle began with allegations of dysfunction, it wasn’t long before things took a turn toward the strange. During the initial separation, Pilar alleged that Deion was abusive and that their marriage was filled with lies.
Then Tracy Edmonds, Sanders’ girlfriend, got involved, discrediting Pilar.
The children eventually got involved, with Deion’s daughter jumping in to speak ill of Pilar. Eventually, Pilar lost custody of her children.
In the aftermath, she blamed Bishop T.D. Jakes for this.
She was sentenced to a week in jail at one point.
Deion sued Pilar for defamation of character, for the abuse allegations, and a judge eventually ordered her to pay Sanders $2.2 million.
Needless to say, it was a rough time for Pilar.
Two years since then, an Instagram post suggests that things might be looking up for Pilar. Her son Shilo Sanders recently shared this Instagram post.
In another one that was eventually deleted, the younger Sanders wrote:
While people are calling the son disrespectful and out of order, I’m still very skeptical about the whole thing. You just never know who’s doing what…and that’s all I’ll say. Then again, if you scroll through Shilo’s Instagram page, there’s virtually no sign of Deion but several pictures of Pilar. Still, it’s particularly interesting that Pilar would be rewarded custody at 17-years-old, shortly before he leaves to go to college.
Either way, what do you make of this whole situation?
