Deion Sanders’ contentious divorce took another ugly turn on Monday, when the Pro Football Hall of Famer posted a photograph of he and his two sons filling out a police report against their mother, Pilar Sanders.
The photograph above was tweeted by Sanders 14 minutes after he posted the following two messages on his Twitter timeline. (The bottom message was sent first.)
He captioned the photograph with the message, “filling out police reports now! Thank God for this platform to issue the Truth.”
TMZ reports that police were seen outside Sanders’ house on Monday night and an unidentified person was in handcuffs. His estranged wife was taken to a hospital after complaining of a medical problem.
Last month, Pilar Sanders filed a $200 million defamation lawsuit against her husband. She was responding to a tweet from Deion’s daughter, Deiondra, which said Pilar was a “gold-digging [expletive].” Deion later explained that the statement couldn’t be defamation because it’s true.
The NFL Network analyst filed for divorce in December and the story has been a fixture of the tabloids ever since. How grotesque is it? Deion, who just used his children against their mother to win public sympathy points, thinks he’s the victim. And he may even be right.
