The divorce between Deion Sanders and estranged wife Pillar just took an ugly turn, giving Deion’s divorce attorney some ammunition, after she assaulted the former football player in front of their children.
The alleged assault took place just a couple of hours before Deion was scheduled to appear at a charity event. He told TMZ that he was in his bedroom when Pillar and a friend busted in and began “kicking, biting and scratching him” in front of his sons. Deion asserted that he protected himself until he was able to call police.
Deion took to Twitter to relay the events, saying “Pray for me and my kids now! They just witnessed their mother and a friend jump me in my room. She’s going to jail and I’m pressing charges.”
Police arrived and Pillar was taken to the hospital claiming she needed medical attention. She was not arrested. Deion then went down to the local police station to file charges.
The couple, who star in a reality show hired divorce lawyers and filed for dissolution in January of this year after rumors surfaced that Deion cheated on her.
Divorces can become contentious very quickly when there are issues of infidelity. The divorcing parties may feel the need to take revenge in one way or another, either physically, emotionally or financially. These issues can be settled in a reasonable manner with the representation of a divorce attorney.
