Ex-NFL player, Deion Sanders, and his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders, were back in court this week and things didn’t go so well for Pilar. She’s lost temporary custody of her two sons, but will retain custody of their daughter. The boys have been living with Deion throughout this court process. Pilar also got hit financially and her child support has been cut in half, from $10,500 to $5,500 a month.
Following the court hearing, Pilar said,
I am sad that Deion has been able to keep my boys away from me since Oct. 26 — no Halloween, no Thanksgiving — and now he is threatening to keep them away from me for Christmas. . . . He is using our innocent children as a pawn in this ugly, ugly divorce.”
Pilar said she won’t stop fighting for full custody, and feels she’s falling “victim of Deion’s celebrity status.” Her publicist, Her publicist, Kali Bowyer, said,
Pilar has become a victim of Deion’s celebrity status, which has swayed the courts and blinded justice . . . It has become evident at this point that there is an absolute prejudice against Pilar, and this has become a completely one-sided court circus.”
