The divorce rumors were true after all.
Back in September, news broke that, former NFL cornerback, Deion Sanders had filed for divorce from wife Pilar Sanders. Not long after, Deion denied those allegations and even took to social networking site, twitter, to say,
In a new statement to TMZ, Sanders now says,
“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.” He continues, “We arrived at this decision prayerfully and carefully in order to be able to pursue what is in both of our best personal interests.”
As for the cause of the divorce, sources close to the couple suggest Pilar feels she has sacrificed her dreams and aspirations for her marriage to Deion and would now like to focus on her future endeavors as a model, spokesperson and reality TV personality. She has confessed to close friends that her husband was never supportive of her dreams and opted for a stay at home wife instead.
Although, the couple have done two reality shows together, a now single, Pilar has already set her plans in motion and should be coming to a television screen near you.
She’s also best known for her killer body and strict work out regimen. I wouldn’t be surprised if a fitness video was also in the works. Best wishes Pilar!
The couple have been married for nearly 12 years and have children together.
