Deion Sanders is fighting back after suffering public slander from ex-wife Pilar Sanders. The former Dallas ‘Cowboys’ player has allegedly filed a lawsuit against Pilar for defamation of character.
Courthouse News reports,
“[Deion] sued Pilar Sanders, aka Pilar Love el Dey, on November 24 in Collin County Court, seeking ‘more than $200,000 but less than $1 million.’ In the lawsuit, Sanders claims that his ex ‘has published, and continues to publish, statements on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, You Tube and other social media accusing Plaintiff of child abuse, abuse of the Defendant, assault, murder, and other crimes (the ‘False Statements’). She has also appeared on television, specifically the Bill O’Reilly Show, making similar abuse allegations.'”
Deion addressed his ex-wife’s slander a few weeks ago. “When a man walks away, that tells you a lot about the situation; when a man wins custody, that tells a lot about the situation,” said the star. “The lies about the abuse. I mean when somebody says that you attempted to murder them; how can you kidnap your own kids and you got custody of them?”
Deion is reportedly seeking an injunction and punitive damages for defamation of character in this most recent lawsuit. He and Pilar have three kids together.
