Deion Sanders

Pilar's Trying to EXTORT Me

1/18/2012 4:23 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Deion Sanders and wife
Deion Sanders
is firing back at his estranged wife Pilar, claiming her recent accusations -- that he's a narcissistic serial cheater -- are just a "shady" attempt to extort more money from the NFL star.

Deion's attorney, Jody Johnson, tells TMZ -- "The actions of Ms. Sanders and her attorney are nothing more than an attempt to avoid a legally binding contract that she no longer likes, by falsely assassinating the character of Mr. Sanders in an effort to extort additional money from Mr. Sanders."

The contract she's referring to ... the couple's prenup -- which Pilar wants the judge to toss out ... so she can make a grab for the lion's share of Deion's estate.

Pilar claims she was forced to sign the prenup under duress, but Deion says that's BS -- according to his lawyer, "Mr. Sanders committed to a generous financial agreement with his wife when they both voluntarily signed a premarital agreement."

Deion claims it didn't end there either, he also showered her with money and gifts before and during their marriage.

As for Pilar's attacks on Deion's parenting skills -- his lawyer claims, "Anyone who knows Mr. Sanders and observes him on a daily basis knows that he is a committed, ever-present father."

The lawyer adds, "Mr. Sanders will not be intimidated by these shady tactics and remains committed to resolve this matter in a court of law as quickly and amicably as possible."

Pilar's lawyer tells TMZ, Pilar's not the liar -- in fact, "Pilar has taken a lie detector test on the question of fidelity during her marriage to Deion Sanders and PASSED."

I seem to recall that Mr. Sanders admitted to being abusive. I have no clue as to who either of these losers are other than he has a history of abuse and she apparently appears to be a gold-digger and is as unstable as him [first he's an angle then he's an menace to society. There kids are going to be f-ed up if they're not already showing signs of it. His daughter is infected with their disease---hate to see how this madness is going to play out in her life, they've ruined her for life.

i guess she is gonna try every trick in the book - but it's not going to work - she signed an iron clad prenup and lives in a no fault divorce state - and since there in no clause in the pre nup she gets extra money if he cheats. then his cheating makes no difference. the only money that can be changed is the child support - thats why she wants sole custody, so she could get extra money - which is pretty crappy for her kids - so good riddance pilar!

Ugh. Can't any of these people keep their private life private?? It's always the same. He thinks he can do whatever he pleases, including screwing everything in sight. She catches him and sticks it to him. These guys never learn.

First you knew Pilar was a GOLD DIGGER from day one. Next, your are a habitual woman hopper. Divide everything and maybe next time you will stay single if you want to be a whoremonger! Pilar should pay child support to your daughter.

There is no such thing as a "lie detector". A polygraph cannot "detect lies". Only bodily reactions to questions that can indicate that the monitored person may be lying. OR may be reacting to the questions in a significant or unsignificant way because of dozens of other factors like excitement, agitation, embarrassment, exhaustion, bad or good associations, depression, unwarranted feelings of guilt, medication, drug use, cardiovascular diseases, autogenic training etc.. Even the sound of the voice of the person asking the questions can have an influence on the test results. Guilty people have passed those tests with flying colours, innocent people have failed. You can actually train and condition yourself to "beat the machine". No justice system in the world that's not a complete joke uses these tests for anything. So, screw that, Pilar!

Can someone please tell me the point of a pre-nup if some stupid, gold-digging h0 can challenge it in court??? She knew what she was getting into. Why these pro athletes marry their wh0res, I'll never know. Nice to see Jeter has some brains.
