After 13 of years marriageâ€”an eternity in Hollywood yearsâ€”former NFL player Deion Sanders filed for divorce from his leggy, beautiful wife, Pilar Sanders, in December 2011. The two continued to live together after separatingâ€”but in separate parts of their Texas homeâ€”but quickly learned the woes of a divorce wouldnâ€™t allow that to last long. The two engaged in a very public verbal and physical dispute resulting in Pilarâ€™s arrest and Deion receiving an assault citation. The man better known as "PrimeTime" often took to his Twitter account to release his stress and share with his fans regarding his bitter divorce battle.
In May 2012, a Texas judge ruled in Pilarâ€™s favor, mandating Deion to pay her $10,500 in child support per month in addition to $275,000 in legal fees. But just when the former Playboy model didnâ€™t think things could get any worse, Texas courts awarded sole custody of the no-longer-married coupleâ€™s two sons, Shilo, 13, and Shedeur, 11, to their father, and shared custody of their daughter, Shalomi, 9, on March 12, 2013.
While an unusual situation, Pilar saw some small success in acquiring shared custody of her daughter. But things changed once again yesterday (March 20), when a court granted full custody of Shalomi to Deion.
