The divorce between Deion Sanders and his estranged wife, Pilar, is reaching a new low. Just weeks after the former Dallas Cowboys cornerback was forced to defend himself on accusations of him being adulterer, narcissist and abuser, his future ex-wife came out with new allegations that he offered to give her money in exchange for sex.
TMZ reported that Pilar has filed an emergency motion in a Texas courtroom, claiming that Deion held her as a "financial hostage". In the court papers, the "Deion & Pilar: Prime Time Love" star said she was left without any financial means to support their three children after the NFL Network analyst canceled her credit cards.
"Since [Deion] filed for divorce on December 21, 2011, he has given [Pilar] $300.00 and offered her money in exchange for sexual favors," the filing read. It further noted that Pilar "turned down the money." Pilar is now asking judge to intervene because "the children and I have lived in survival mode for several months, and the emotional toll on all of us is palpable."
Beside canceling Pilar's credit cards, Deion was also accused of canceling her cell phone. Pilar further added that her estranged husband has "engaged in a pattern of systematically removing my belongings from the house and haphazardly throwing them into piles in the garage of the residence."
Deion filed for divorce from Pilar in December 2011. In a statement about the split, he said, "Pilar and I have decided to end our marriage and move on to the next phase of our individual lives with mutual respect. We are friends and our top priority has and will continue to be the well-being of our children."
Pilar then fought back with her divorce filing. In it, she claimed that the former NFL star "has been guilty of unkind, uncaring, insensitive, cruel and unusual treatment of [Pilar] ... as well as physical, mental and emotional abuse of [Pilar] and the parties' children." Deion later fought back, saying that his wife for the past 12 years tried to extort money from him.
