Pilar Sanders, the estranged wife of ex-NFL’er Deion Sanders, is ending 2012 with a public bang–exposing more of the couple’s nasty divorce battle, in the press. One day after Christmas, Pilar speaks (with Cherry On Top) in great detail about how she’s been physically abused, Deion’s alleged affair with an 18-year-old girl and her recently reported child support reduction. She also pens an open letter. Check it out below.
You’ve accused Deion of being abusive in the past, including physical and verbal abusive. Can you give our readers a specific instance of this abuse?
PS: Most recently, every picture on the web would show that my arm was broken and he busted my thumb in attempts to knock me out, kill me, yeah. And maybe, perhaps, people will believe it more so now, that, unfortunately, they were seeing this season. The very drastic increase of athletes, football players who snap, and unfortunately, take their lives and other people’s lives with them. It’s not that far off, it’s not uncommon among athletes. It’s very, very, very not uncommon when you speak with other NFL wives, football wives, athletes’ wives.
I remember you being photographed wearing a cast after the situation that occurred at the house you once shared during which he’s accused you and a friend of jumping him. Can you tell us exactly what happened in the house that day?
PS: You know what, I’m 129 pounds, okay. He has been trained all his life to play baseball and to attack people. Football, you’re running, you’re grabbing; it’s a very violent sport. What kind of sense would it make for me at 5’9?, 129 pounds to attack someone his size? That just doesn’t make sense. And for what? No, not at all.
As far as child support goes, you supposedly were getting $10,500 per month. Were you actually getting child support from him?
PS: I was never, ever, ever once paid child support, at all. Never once. And I’ve seen his statement saying “and I have the canceled checks to prove it,” but he never showed it, now did he? He never showed you one of his canceled checks of child support that he’s paid, did he? Absolutely not, and he won’t because he hasn’t.
The prenup gives you one million dollars and a $100,000, or something like that?
PS: No, it’s not even any of that. They thought they would make a joke out of it and label it as such, but no. We don’t even need to really go into that because it’s really not valid. It’s not a valid agreement number one. However, if by some stretch of the imagination you want to deem it valid, okay, it’s valid. The document itself says ‘and cause for grounds of an annulment’, now that’s something that his attorney came up with, not mine.
And if that’s not enough, Pilar has penned a lengthy open letter. Peep an excerpt:
A person with any type of intellect or basic common sense would realize how low and desperate it looks to demean and verbally abuse your wife and mother of your three children of whom she has been raising period! If spending 14years of sharing your life building a family, creating and managing our family brand and business’ means I was “digging for Gold” then I guess that would make us both diggers wouldn’t it? Any digging done was us breaking ground together on our marital property in Prosper, Tx. And perhaps most recently by Mr. Deion Sanders reaching and grabbing for any kind of sheet or wool to pull over the media’s eyes, when photos of him and an 18yrs old teenager in a hotel bed surfaced Sept. 2011 instead of dealing with it like a man, Deion choose to hide behind smoke and mirrors by throwing our entire family under the bus!….That’s digging
Whose side are you on? And do you agree with any of Pilar’s points? Lastly, are the two both guilty of using the press to play victim?
