The estranged wife of former NFL great Deion Sanders is vowing to continue fighting for her children after losing custody of two of them — and claims she’s a “victim of Deion’s celebrity status.” At a Dallas court hearing on Wednesday, model and actress Pilar Sanders lost temporary custody of her two boys, who have been living with their NFL Network analyst and Hall of Famer father.
The judge also reduced Pilar’s child support from $10,500 to $5,500 a month. She will retain custody of their daughter. 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.” Pilar herself 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.”
