breaking news

Deion Sanders scored BIG in his nasty legal war with estranged wife Pilar ... getting temporary custody of their kids PLUS a restraining order that keeps her 500 yards from his Dallas mansion.

During Monday's hearing, the judge also ruled Deion was only acting in self-defense when he injured Pilar during an altercation at the mansion on April 23. The judge said Pilar could face a fine for her role in the alleged attack.

The judge also ruled that Pilar and Deion's 3 minor children must undergo psychological counseling.

Deion and Pilar have been at each other's throats for months -- after Pilar claimed he was a no-good, cheating, narcissist.

Pillar is the one who needs about a YEAR of psychological counseling. Lots of "anger management" therapy. Just because Deion might be a cheatin' dog doesn't mean she has a license to beat on him. Some women really do seriously injure or kill their husbands or boyfriends in fights. Sometimes they don't really intend to do it either. They might throw something at him and split his head open or they push him down the stairs or something. I've heard of some women trying to run over their hubby or boyfriend in parking lots with their cars.

I think both parents are acting life selfish fools. They need to put their children first. I don't like Pilar at all, but I'm also sick of Deion playing the victim. He's just as bad as she is.

They BOTH knew the package each was getting before they got married. He wanted arm candy worthy of his huge ego and she wanted $$$ and the lifestyle. Both should be kicked in the azz for this ridiculous public circus drama.

The judge should have ordered counselling for Pilar as well. She is not behaving rationally. I hope she's going to be ok.

Finally, a shred of justice, rather than sexism. Man acts a little strange = thrown in jail. Pilar has been going NUTS for the past 6 months, and nothing. Deion FINALLY got a TEMPORARY ruling. We'll see if our legal system can hold up for him. Only a crazy B|tch would sign a pre-nup, then say she didn't mean it. This woman is nuts... keep her away from those kids.

"the judge also ruled Deion was only acting in self-defense when he injured Pilar during an altercation at the mansion on April 23"
GOOD! You can't charge a man for simply trying to defend himself from two crazy b**ches!
It's right that he got custody too. Pilar attacking him right in front of the kids proves she has no regard for their safety or well being - both physical & mental.

Maybe the judge should take the kids away from BOTH of them, then perhaps Deion & Pilar MIGHT grow up.

It's about time. This woman is nuts and not good for her children right now. I hope she gets the help she needs so she can let go of her bitterness and be a good parent.
