Update: Deion Sanders’ Ex-Fiancée Tracey Edmonds Clarifies That She Was The One Who Ended Their 12-Year Relationship: ‘I’ve Chosen To Prioritize Myself & My Family’
Update: (Dec. 11, 2023): The breakup between Tracey Edmonds and football legend Deion Sanders might not have been as amicable as they initially claimed.
Earlier this month Edmonds, 56, released a statement letting the world know that she’s a single woman. In the post, she shared that after 12 years of dating Sanders, also 56, they “mutually decided” it was best if they continued life as friends only. Sanders even commented on the post, giving the TV producer her flowers by writing, in part,
“I appreciate the times we’ve shared and they laughs we’ve had. …You are an amazing woman and a tremendous mother.”
However, despite things appearing to be cool between the exes, Edmonds recently made it clear that she was the one who called things off. In a new statement shared over the weekend, she revealed,
“I want to clarify that it was my decision to end the relationship, despite any different narratives being presented. I’ve chosen to prioritize myself and my family, moving forward towards a future where I am valued, treated with honesty, and free to embrace the happiness and respect I deserve.”
