Another star in the news, getting a divorce, and this one’s not even in the Golden State.  According to the Los Angeles Times, former football great, Neon Deion Sanders, has been cited for misdemeanor assault in connection with an altercation with his estranged wife, Pilar Sanders.

Pilar, who spent a recent night in jail, was also charged with misdemeanor assault as a result of the same incident.  Deion recently tweeted that Pilar and a friend had attacked him in front of their children at their home in Prosper, Texas, a suburb of Dallas.  He also posted a photo of his boys filling out a police report against their mother.

Last December, Deion filed for divorce, but he and his wife continued to live in separate areas of the same house.  In the months following the filing, Pilar has thrown out some ugly accusations which have led to a volatile war of words.  Pilar has referred to her soon-to-be-ex as a “cheating, narcissistic bully” who is “at the bottom of the depths of humanity.”  She has accused him of only giving her money for “sexual favors.”

Through his legal mouth-pieces, Deon has responded to these accusations as being nothing more than “extortion.”  And maybe he’s right.  Because it all seems to come down to this: Pilar has filed court documents against the former NFL star seeking $200 million in damages for the “emotional and physical abuse, mental distress, public humiliation, and financial loss” at the hands of her ex.  Who says this only happens in California.
