Deion Sanders' wife sues him for $200 million

Deion Sanders’ divorce case is taking a turn for the uglier.

Pilar Sanders has filed two lawsuits in Collin County district coirt seeking $200 million in damages for an alleged assault as well as libelous and slanderous remarks.

These legal matters are separate from the divorce Deion Sanders filed for in December. The Hall of Fame cornerback and NFL Network analyst is facing a messy public battle right now.

According to the Dallas Morning News, Pilar Sanders alleged that her husband and other are to blame for emotional and physical abuse as well as mental distress, public humiliation and financial damage.

In one suit, Pilar Sanders targets a Twitter post made by Deion Sanders’ daughter in which she called Pilar Sanders “the number one gold digger of the year.”

According to the report, Pilar Sanders claims Deion Sanders also attacked her with a post about his wife’s “lies and foolishness.”

The second suit is centered on an alleged assault at the couple’s home.

Unless these sides can get on board for a tidy resolution there could be more bombshells in the news.
