Pilar Sanders SUES

Deion 'Orchestrated' Ambush

... On Me!!!

Deion Sanders "orchestrated" a violent attack on his wife ... designed to physically force her out of his Texas mansion ... this according to a new lawsuit filed by Pilar Sanders.

In a fast and furious legal response to the altercation at the home this week, Pilar filed suit against Deion and a woman named Laura Jones, the woman accused of carrying out the attack.

According to the documents, Deion summoned Laura -- his "fake aunt" -- to help him physically remove Pilar from the home on Feb. 6 so Deion could change the locks and bar her from returning.

Pilar claims Jones is legally banned from entering the home ... but she entered the place anyway ... so Pilar says she demanded that the woman leave immediately. Instead, Pilar claims, the woman "squared off and took a swing at [Pilar] hitting her in the eye."

Pilar says Laura "continued to hit, slap, punch, choke, push and kick" her ... causing various injuries. Pilar says she was so scared, she grabbed a KITCHEN KNIFE and prepared to defend herself until cops arrived.

Now, Pilar wants a judge to issue a restraining order against the woman ... and she wants Deion to fork over a check for the mental and physical pain.

After the incident, Deion claimed Laura was only at the home to fix his phone system and said Pilar's account is completely untrue.

"Mental and Physical pain"? Pilar, that pain in your head when you try to process a thought isn't due to this fight. That is irrelevant to the fact you were born with no brain.

So first she said the Aunt threw something at her, hitting her in the eye. Now she says she was "beaten, kicked, punched etc". I honestly don't believe a word this woman says. She's lying her ass off trying to get paid and it's getting really pathetic. Pilar, Deon's the one who bought the house, and he's giving you the boot. Instead of kicking, screaming and causing a scene, just accept that your time as a spoiled housewife is over. It's time for you to start looking for a job, bitch. The free ride is over.

And one other thing: Deion get your family members off of twitter and the radio stations. It's not a good look and they are really starting to look VERY GHETTO!! NO WONDER YOU AND PILAR CAN'T FIND ANY COMMON GROUND!! You have this crazy family slamming your wife in the media which clearly shows that you allowed them to disrespect her during your marriage!! They come across as busy-body, gossiping HATERS!! NO WONDER YOUR MARRIAGE IS IN A SHAMBLES!! Tell your family to get a life and seek Jesus!! They need PRAYER!! QUICKLY!!!

Ok, I get rhat there is obviously a lot of anger and hatred going on between them both, but is she kidding me??/ This sounds soo OFF THE WALL that there is no way I believe her! And consindering the update that came after this story, its no surprise most others don't either. Pilar just SHUT UP and let your divorce go amicably. You look like a crazy nutbag now.

We are watching a very public extortion. She's going to slander Deion and make his life miserable unless he comes up with all of his cash. Also if she can run him off, she'll claim he "deserted" the family and it will jeopardize his custody claims for the children. Once he's gone and the divorce is over ... she's back to being no big deal, just like she was before they married. Extortion is ugly to watch. Those poor kids, having a flaming nutcase for a mom!

Pilar, you led with your *****. Which led him to ask you to sign a pre-nup. It's tapped out now. THIS WAS YOUR MOMENT to FINALLY be a lady, and just shut the hell up, abide by the agreement you signed, and move on. Oh wait, too late. You've already acted like a total ass over and over and over. Terrible example for your kids, especially the girls.

Pilar you better learn to keep your mouth shut! You are starting to sound unbalanced and money hungry! Seems like all of this is about YOU and the ALL MIGHTY DOLLAR!!! What about your CHILDREN??? What are you teaching them ... that it is OK to do whatever you want as long as money is involved? You knew that you were marrying a SPORTS STAR and that he had $$$ he also is NOT as STUPID as most folks think he is ... stop while you have SOME CONVERTIBILITY!!! Cause in this area of TEXAS - - a Dallas Cowboy is always gonna be a KING!!!

PILAR GETS EVRYTHING SHE GOES THROUGH. SHE IS A GOLD DIGGING HALF MAN HALF WOMAN LOOKING PERSON. SHE LOOKS DOWN ON PEOPLE AND SPENDS MONEY LIKE SHE GREW IT ON HER OWN TREE. I WISH DEON NOTHING BUT PRAISE AND BLESSINGS. DO WHAT YOU MUST GODS FOLLOWER. HE WILL NOT FORSAKE YOU. PILAR WILL AND HAS. KEEP YOU EYES OPEN AND LISTEN TO THE ATTORNEYS. BE STILL AND ALL WILL BE REVEALED.
