This has been a strange story from the beginning.
Because of Kobe and Vanessa’s divorce it has been pushed to the back burning, but here is a brief timeline.
Deion is allegedly gets caught cheating with a 19 year old.
Deion allegedly serves Pilar with divorce papers.
Pilar confirms she was served.
Deion denies he served her with divorce papers.
Deion confirms they are having issues but are working it out.
*silence for a couple of months*
Deion announces he is getting a divorce and then confirms it with TMZ.
Deion Sanders‘ wife says the former NFL star didn’t have the stones to personally tell her he wants a divorce … shockingly, she learned about the move by checking TMZ.com.
Pilar Sanders‘ lawyer, Larry Friedman, tells us she was “heartbroken and surprised when [she] read … that Deion announced his decision, on his own, to end their marriage.”
Pilar’s lawyer adds, “Pilar’s sole focus and top priority for the last 12.5 years has been her marriage and children. Based on recent discoveries, [Pilar] now realizes that Deion did not view their family the same way.”
Friedman tells us Pilar has NOT negotiated a divorce settlement with Deion — but says she fully intends to protect herself and her children.
Translation — this divorce ain’t gonna come cheap.
Still, Pilar says she isn’t 100% convinced the marriage is dead … chalking up Deion’s recent behavior to a “temporary lapse of judgment” … and insisting she’s “confident that he will come to his senses and return to his family as he has in the past.”
Didn’t Kris Humphries find out about his divorce via TMZ?
Maybe that is the new way of getting served papers, just let TMZ know first.
No one really knows what is going on except that in the end hopefully they all work it out and everyone leaves the situation in a happy place.
I am sure TMZ will be the first to know.
