Deion’s girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds, remained publicly supportive tweeting him:

This is Deion’s second marriage. He and share three children together (Shilo, Shedeur, Shelomi). In March, he was awarded primary custody of their children. Pilar made no announced publicly, but earlier this year, confirmed she’s using her pen game to get her story out. Reportedly, she’s writing a book, Saving Sanders: The Pilar Sanders Untold Story, described as:
“true, uncut story about the abuse Pilar endured, how she built an empire with him, and how he cheated on her.”
Pilar says that she wants women, who have had similar experiences, to learn from her:
“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. 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.”
Nonetheless, we wish these two the best.
