Former two-sport star and current NFL analyst Deion Sanders has never been the most stand-up guy. We mostly base that statement on the fact he wouldn’t tackle anyone when he played in the NFL and apparently once drew a dollar sign in the on-deck circle when playing with the Yankees, which prompted an altercation with White Sox catcher Carlton Fisk.
In our estimation those aren’t the actions of a man. Right now, it’s only an allegation, but Sanders’ wife Pilar is claiming good ole’ Prime Time didn’t inform her he was going to divorce her. She allegedly learned of their potential split through the media.
And we’ll use that term loosely, since said media is 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.”
Now, let’s be practical. This may or may not be the case.
Friedman is a big-shot lawyer in Dallas — one of the biggest — and he, not Pilar, released these statements. We’re sure he’d love to try Deion in the court of public opinion, which is a good strategy. Let’s face it, the guy’s kind of a douche. How he has an analyst job is beyond us.
And hell, TMZ prints anything, so there’s that.
That being said, Deion is, well… you know… pretty much a douche. Would you think he’s incapable of such chicanery?
However this turns out, we’re pretty sure of this. Prime is gonna pay through his nose.
In the same statement, Pilar says she’s going to protect herself and her kids, which means she’s gonna make The Prime hurt where only The Prime can hurt. Frankly, she should have protected herself and her future children by not marrying Neon Deion.
Speaking of, do you think he can bring the Jheri curl back? Maybe if we get him some Soul Glo?
We digress, but here’s the bottom line. Take Pilar or Friedman’s statements with a grain of salt, but remember the dollar sign.
