Deion Sanders Talks About Divorce, Infidelity Rumors & Daughter’s Twitter Rant
Rucuss staffJanuary 4, 2012
Deion Sanders and his wife Pilar are in the middle of a messy divorce.
After 12 years of marriage, Sanders filed for divorce that is destined to get uglier by the minute. Pilar claims she was blindsided by the divorce while Sanders oldest daughter is disputing her stepmother’s claims by going on a Twitter rant. She questioned Pilar’s commitment to the marriage and said she was a ‘gold diggin h*e!’
Sanders had remained quiet since his filing but felt the need to set the record straight on a few things. Sanders called into Dallas K104 FM and addressed the rumors circulating about his divorce.
Sanders apologized on his daughter’s behalf and even admits that he and Pilar still live together. But there’s plenty of room. The Sanders live in a lavish, 40,000-square-foot mansion that sits on a 112-acre ranch. The residence has two pools, 10 bedrooms and 13 bathrooms.
Check out a few excerpts from the interview below.
On daughter Deiondra’s twitter rant:
I apologize for my daughter. She loves her father and she felt like I was being abused and misused and she lashed out, which she’s sorry for. She wanted to get a lot of things out of her that’s been inside of her. But it’s unfortunate that really magnified the situation.
On if the rumors are true about Pilar bringing another man to their home:
I don’t know and I won’t comment on it. Pilar, if she’s not nothing, she’s a friend. She’s the mother of my kids so just think about that. I do not want the mother of my childrens’ name slandered because she’s the mother of my kids. So why would I suggest that? Why would I want that? I’m not happy with everything that has come out but it really didn’t have to.
On whether he’s buying Pilar a house:
That’s not true and the sad thing about it is when you separate you want to make sure your spouse/exes is taking care of. You want to make sure she’s straight. Getting a home that’s equal to—you can’t keep up with the up keep. To much is given, much is required. A lot of people who want to live like a baller or live like a boss -I’m not talking about Pilar- I’m just talking about society. You don’t realize there’s a lot of men who come along with that. There’s yardmen, there’s a housekeeper, there’s pool men; everybody got to get paid. You can’t maintain that unless you have employment paying you seven or eight figures. Okay, just understand that! You can’t live like that and it’s not possible when you don’t have the revenue that’s regenerating to keep up with the lifestyle.
On if he’s still living with Pilar:
The thing about it….Pilar and I are cool. I mean we’re cool. When I say cool, we’re living under the same roof. That’s true. First of all, I’m very calm. I’m not a yeller or screamer and I’m not even upset. It’s just another chapter in your life where you have to move on. And Pilar is cool too. And the home is large enough, but you gotta to understand we love the babies. I love my babies and I’m a father. It’s cool until the situation is worked out. That’s why you can’t believe what you read because if it was as ignorant as people would speculate it’s no way to be compatible. But I see her every morning. And I say, ‘What’s up?, What’s up, girl?’ It really is like that. That’s why you can’t believe everything.
Deion’s thanked his supporters on his Facebook page Sunday. He thanked them for standing by him and said he would not engage in a public relations battle with his wife or with her attorney. He characterized Pilar’s attorney as “ruthless and unethical,” accusing him of a history of engaging in smear tactics to “shake people down for more money.” He added that his wife was “completely financially secure,” noting that they had an agreement that would allow her to “move on with freedom.”
The couple married in 1999 and have three children together. Deion also has two children from a previous marriage.
