The Deion and Pilar Sanders divorce drama has a new chapter every day! Although the next court date in the couple’s highly contentious split is next week (January 9), Deion’s legal team has quit! In a court document filed on New Year’s Eve and obtained by CherryOnTop, the football legend’s attorneys request they be allowed to step down because of their inability to “effectively communicate with their client.” The court document also states that Deion is “unable to pay his attorneys pursuant to the terms of the employment agreements with his attorneys.” That last part is very surprising considering Deion’s reported fortune.
In a statement released exclusively to CherryOnTop, Pilar’s publicist, Kali Bowyer, said:
“Nothing surprises me at this point, first he screws Pilar out of her support, now his legal counsel, what’s next? I look at it this way all Deion had to do was write a check and do right by the mother of his children. That’s what this all comes down to, a dollar, a simple dollar. Deion has been very blessed throughout his career and to have made the income he has, why would he not want his children to continue on with a similar lifestyle? Spite … that’s all it is spite, hate and resentment. Sadly, a new year has no resolution in anytime soon. I would ask to have the madness to stop, the lies (which are now leading to libel law suits), he [Deion] promises small time ‘blogs’ exclusives and to put them in touch with other sports figures & celebrities in exchange to attempt to make her look bad, writing nasty lies. At the end these bloggers will realize they got screwed as well as ending up in a court room themselves.”
We are completely bewildered about how and why this divorce has gotten this ugly. At one point, Deion and Pilar seemed like a very solid, happily married couple. We hope they do what’s in the best interest of their three children by setting aside their differences sooner rather than later. Check out the court document below, and just in case you missed it, be sure to check out our exclusive interview with Pilar here. Thoughts?
